One of the best things that a man can do to increase sperm is to eat a healthy diet. Eating healthy can supply the body with the essential amino acids that it needs to increase sperm. Limiting caffeine and drinking plenty of fluids will helps the body stay hydrated. When the body is dehydrated, it cannot easily make fluids like semen. Another reason that eating a healthy diet can increase sperm is that a diet that is low in fat and high in protein, vegetables, and whole grains provides nutrients that facilitate an increase in sperm. Avoiding bitter, astringent, and spicy foods is also beneficial to increase sperm.
It is believed by some that wheat germ eaten with oatmeal can increase sperm and increase the thickness of semen. Zinc is thought to be one of the best substances to increase sperm as well. Additionally zinc may improve the sperms motility (ability to move.) Zinc combined with amino acids helps increase sperm count and volumey, because amino acids are suspected of increasing the amount of ejaculate fluid when taken regularly. Some of the most important amino acids are:
L Lysine: This amino acid stimulates testosterone production and improves semen quality, and although it does not increase sperm concentration, increasing the quality is key as well.
L Arginine: This amino acid can increase sperm health and activity. Eating nuts and seeds like almonds and peanuts can help ingest a good amount of the amino acid, and so are raisins and chocolate, popcorn and brown rice, oatmeal and whole wheat bread.
Epimedium Sagittatum: This herb is sometimes called Horny goat weed and it can increase sperm production for strong ejaculation. Not only can this one increase sperm, but it can also increase a persons libido as well.
Zinc Oxide: Zinc has been shown to increase sperm both in concentration in semen and in motility by a whopping 80% to 200%. The zinc helps in the process of testosterone synthesis to increase sperm.
Pollixol: A botanical seed extract, has been clinically shown to increase sperm .
In addition to amino acids, foods that can increase sperm include any foods that contain ginseng, vitamins C and E, and also magnesium and lecithin.
