Natural Methods to Increase Your Sperm Count
Having a low sperm count is the most common reason that a man may have trouble trying to conceive. Surprisingly, many couples may not immediately feel like it’s worth having a man’s sperm analyzed. They assume, quite incorrectly, that infertility issues are entirely the purview of the woman, and that it’s just not as likely to be a problem. The statistics, however, suggest that the male partner may be responsible for fertility issues in around half of the cases where a couple is trying to conceive but is unsuccessful.
What makes matters worse is that there aren’t a whole lot of medical options for when you have a low sperm count. Fortunately, many men have had luck making some other changes to diet or lifestyle.
Here are a few ways you may be able to naturally increase your sperm count:
- Make some changes to your diet. Make sure that your diet consists of whole and unprocessed foods. You want to make sure you’re getting enough whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds in particular. Specifically, it is thought that raw sunflower seeds and even pumpkin seeds may help out some with a low sperm count. Try to get as much as 1/4 cup of raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds each day.
- Vitamin supplements might help with your low sperm count, too. Some of the relevant vitamins include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, Selenium, Zinc Arginine, and Carnitine.
- There are some herbs that might help to naturally increase your sperm count, as well. These include things like Maca, Goshkura and even Extracts Vriddadaru.
In the end, there’s nothing you can do to guarantee that you will be able to increase your sperm count. However, it may be that the combination of seeking medical advice along with some of these natural steps may be able to help you out in the long run.
