Green Superfoods for Male Fertility

Green Superfoods for Male Fertility

Green Superfoods for Male FertilityA man’s fertility depends to a great extent on his overall health and nutrition. Research published in Human Reproduction in 2012 showed that a poor diet with high intake of red and processed meat, refined grains, pizza, energy drinks, and sweets, decreases male fertility. A healthier, whole foods diet with high intake of fish, chicken, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains was associated with increased fertility in men.

Other studies show deficiencies of vitamins C and E, and folic acid, are linked to male infertility. Minerals like zinc impact a man’s fertility; low zinc levels can lower sperm count and create sperm abnormalities. Low levels of protective antioxidants from fresh fruits and vegetables are another problem because sperm are very sensitive to oxidative damage. It’s clear that proper nutrition plays a vital role in male reproductive health.

  1. DH does not eat fish and rarely eats vegetables. He refuses to drink vegetable juices. He takes fish oil & multivitamin supplements. I don´t know what to do.

    • Dear Paula,

      How about a greens superfood powder in a Fertility Smoothie (mostly fruit and a great way to add Fertility Superfoods to anyone’s diet).

      I like to hide vegetables in spaghetti sauce, meatballs (meatloaf) and pureed soups too!

      It’s great that he’ll take a fish oil supplement and multivitamin. It would be worth making sure that multi is a whole food multi, such as MegaFood Men’s One Daily Multivitamin available from the Natural Fertility Shop.

      I hope you find ways to help him eat veggies!
