For Healthy Sperm, Eat Fish, Avoid Fat
Because according to a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health, the swimmers in the ocean can help your swimmers reach their destination come attempts of conception. And fatty foods – long believed to have adverse effects on sperm – well, they do have adverse effects on sperm.
This conclusion after study author Jill Attaman analyzed sperm from 99 men on a wide range of diets, of whom 71% were overweight or obese. Study participants reported their intake of specific foods over the previous year.
The findings? Men in the top third of fat intake had 43% less sperm than gents in the lowest intake category. And notably, men who consumed Omega-3 fatty acid rich fish had more sperm than the guys who didn’t do the fish routine, and eating fish increased size of sperm as well.
The study results may be skewed a little, considering that participants were asked to self-report their diet. But it adds further weight to previous studies, that obesity has a detrimental affect on sperm, and that Omega-3 fatty acids may be as good for the loins as they are for the heart.
