Is there a medication out there that can increase sperm production in ageing males?
If so what is the name of this medicine? Are there any side effects that could be harmfull?
* Eat foods rich in zinc.
Low zinc levels in men affect sperm motility, sperm quality and sperm counts. Foods rich in zinc include seafood (particularly oysters!), liver, lean cuts of red meat, nuts and grains.
* Take a vitamin E supplement.
Vitamin E protects against free radicals, unstable molecules which damage sperm cells and cause them to become immotile.
* Eat foods rich in selenium.
Selenium scavenges free radicals and is used by the testes to make selenoproteins, a vital protein required in sperm formation.
Well formed sperm are more likely to be motile than sperm with poor morphology.
Foods rich in selenium include eggs, brewer’s yeast, brazil nuts, garlic and seafood.
* Eat foods rich in L-carnitine.
L-carnitine is an amino acid used in the production of sperm, and scientific studies have shown that men increasing their intake of the amino acid improved sperm motility and sperm quality over a period of 4 months. L-carnitine-rich foods include lean cuts of meat and dairy products.
* Take herbs such as maca root and ginger.
Both are non-toxic herbs which have been used by other cultures, for example in
Traditional Chinese Medicine and South American Medicine, to improve male fertility.
They are particularly beneficial for improving sperm motility and are ingredients in FertilPlus.
Low sperm motility does not mean the end of male fertility.
With a bit of time, dietary changes and herbal remedies, it is possible to improve your sperm motility, and produce motile sperm in just 3 months.
My DH’s counts went up considerably by increasing the amount of Vitamin C he consumed–he preferred eating fresh oranges and juice instead of swallowing pills. However, his sperm count was not an issue with us, I only know it went up because we always get a copy of all our records, and we were able to compare to previous cycles. The vit. C was the only change he made to his diet.
