When it comes to fertility, the first thing women think of is the egg, and the men will think of his sperm. It is not difficult to see that there is a significant relationship between sperm and fertility.
Male sperm quality is closely related to fertility. In recent years, sperm quality is declining due to various reasons, and male fertility is also affected. Therefore, for men preparing for pregnancy, they should first understand the causes of sperm quality and then improve sperm quality.
The common factors affecting sperm quality include infection or inflammation of the reproductive system, such as prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, orchitis, etc. For sperm problems caused by these diseases, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a good choice. It can treat diseases and improve the quality of sperm.
In addition, it's also essential to eat a diet that keeps sperm alive.
1. Eat more high-quality protein
High-quality protein mainly refers to animal protein such as poultry, egg, meat, and bean protein. Proteins contain a variety of amino acids needed by human activities. They participate in the composition of human tissues and cells, including sexual organs and germ cells. For example, arginine is an important raw material for spermatogenesis and has the function of improving sexual function and eliminating fatigue. Soybean products and fish contain more arginine. Some animal foods contain sex hormones.
The enzyme is a kind of particular protein with catalytic activity in the body, which can accelerate the chemical reaction and significantly affect human health. Once the lack of enzymes in the body, there can be hypofunction, including the decline of sexual function and even loss of fertility. Enzymes exist in all kinds of food. When cooking food, the temperature is too high and too long, especially fried, roasted, fried, and other methods are easy to damage enzymes.
Japanese scholars have pointed out that abalone, octopus and clams, oysters, clams, salamanders, sea fans, and other shellfish are rich in amino acids, which are effective fortified foods. Slippery aquatic products also have a substantial effect, such as eel, loach, eel, etc.
2. Take proper amount of fat
In recent years, because most adult men are worried about high cholesterol leading to obesity, heart disease, and so on, they adopt the principle of less intake. However, from the perspective of sexual function maintenance, it is beneficial to eat a certain amount of fat properly. Because the human body's sex hormones (androgen and estrogen) are mainly converted from cholesterol in fat, the reduction of long-term vegetarians' sex hormone secretion is not conducive to sexual function.
In addition, fat contains some essential fatty acids for spermatogenesis. When the fatty acids are deficient, spermatogenesis is affected, and sexual desire is decreased. An appropriate amount of fat can help absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A and vitamin E.
Meat, fish, and eggs contain more cholesterol. Appropriate intake is conducive to the synthesis of sex hormones, primarily animal viscera itself contains sex hormones.
3. Supplement vitamins and trace elements related to sexual function
Studies have shown that the lack of zinc in the human body can cause the decrease of sperm number, the increase of abnormal sperm, the reduction of sexual and reproductive function, and even infertility. Vitamin A and vitamin E have the effect of delaying aging, avoiding the decline of sexual function, and positively affecting sperm production and improving sperm activity. Vitamin C also plays a positive role in the maintenance of sexual function.
High-quality protein, especially animal liver, pancreas, meat, shellfish, milk, Cereals, beans, potatoes, vegetables, brown sugar, contains zinc. Vitamin A is found in liver, eggs, dairy products, fish, crab, shellfish, cabbage, spinach, leek, celery, carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato, dried pepper, and tomato. Vitamin E is found in cereal germ, egg yolk, beans, vegetable oil, chicken, wheat germ, cereal, bread, human-made oil, peanut, and sesame. Fresh jujube, all kinds of vegetables and fruits contain a lot of vitamin C.
