4 nutrients to increase sperm count | Nourish with Melanie #89


We’ve talked a lot about egg health on Nourish, but our eggs are only half of the equation… to make a baby we need healthy sperm too! So, today I’m going to tell you about 4 key
nutrients for increasing sperm count. Stay tuned! So, you’ve found out that your partner’s sperm
count is low. What can he do? Start by making sure that he’s getting enough
of these key nutrients…. Number 1: zinc. Zinc is a mineral found predominantly in fish,
poultry and meat (with of course oysters being a super rich source). It helps to regulate the way that certain
genes are expressed…. Long story, short, what this means is that
a low intake of zinc can lead to a low sperm count So, who’s at risk? Well, vegetarians and other men who have a
low intake of animal foods, maybe due to skipping meals, or some type of surgery which can make
eating meat difficult. Men with absorption conditions like Coeliac
Disease or Crohn’s may also be at risk, and, of course, guys who just don’t eat a very
healthy diet. If your man is in one of these categories,
a dietitian can help make sure that he’s meeting the recommended fourteen milligrams per day. Nutrient number 2: folate. Just like folate is uber important for you
in the lead up to conception, it’s also one of the key nutrients for men. Now, I know that I don’t need to tell you
that folate is important for creating genetic material, but that’s why it’s so important
for sperm health, as well as for egg health. Obviously, the best sources of folate are
green leafy vegies and wholegrains. Interestingly, studies suggest that the combination
of taking zinc and folate supplements together may be a good combination for sperm count,
so if your partners sperm count is really low, you may like to discuss this supplement
combination with your fertility dietitian. Number 3: vitamin E! An interesting study published in the Asian
Journal of Andrology, found that one in three men with low sperm count had low levels of
vitamin E in their seminal fluid. Vitamin E is best found in nuts, seeds and
healthy oils, so I’d recommend a handful of nuts every day! And, lucky last, number 4 is Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is an antioxidant which has many health
benefits. It’s predominately found in fish, meat and
nuts. An Italian study found that CoQ10 supplements
assisted men with low sperm counts, so I’d recommend ensuring a nutritious CoQ10-rich
diet, and considering a short-term intake of CoQ10 supplements. Before I go, the other thing to note is that
being overweight has been linked with having a low sperm count, so this may be something
else that you guys may like to look at. If you’d like to speak to a fertility dietitian
