Study: a Handful of Nuts Every Day Increases Sperm Production by 16%
A new Spanish study that eating a handful of nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts, improves the sperm count by 16%. Also, nuts boost sperm movements by 6%, its survival by 4% and shape by 1% that are all related to male fertility.
For the study, a team of researchers from the University Rovira I Virgil, Tarragona, Spain, analyzed 119 healthy men aged between 18 and 35 years for 14 weeks. The results of the analysis showed that a handful of nuts on a daily basis reduces sperm’s DNA damage.
Author of the study Dr. Albert Salas-Huetos says: “Evidence is accumulating that healthy lifestyle changes such as following a healthy dietary pattern might help conception and of course, nuts are a key component of a Mediterranean healthy diet.”
The findings of the study were presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Barcelona, Spain.
