How to improve sperm count and health naturally

Bouncing Bean Product guide: FertilAid for Men and Sperm Check - Home Sperm test

Sperm count is considered fertile when there are more than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen.

How to improve sperm count naturally:

  • Avoid over heating testicles. When testicles get too warm, they produce less sperm. Avoid hot baths/showers, saunas, hot tubs and wear loose underwear or pants.
  • Decrease stress. Stress causes low sex drive which in turn causes low production of sperm. Stress hormones also inhibit Leydig cells to produce testosterone. A decrease in testosterone causes decreased sperm production.
  • Get enough sleep. Exhaustion can cause rise in stress hormones once again decreasing sperm production.
  • Stop smoking! Smoking causes a decrease in sperm cell development as well as affects their motility (they move slower) and causes sperm defects (abnormal morphology).
  • Drink alcohol in moderation. Too much alcohol affects your liver function, in turn raising estrogen levels in men. This causes a decrease in sperm production.
  • Store sperm for longer periods before ejaculations. If you already have a low sperm count, rather store the sperm until needed and time intercourse at 2-3 day intervals not numerous times a day.
  • Exercise. It builds muscle which in turn produces release of testosterone. Testosterone stimulates sperm production. Just be careful of too much exercise as it causes the release of adrenal steroid hormones, this causes a testosterone deficiency.
  • Avoid using anabolic steroids to build muscle. They shrink testicles and may even cause infertility!
  • Eat healthy. A nutritious diet to assist with fertility in men is low in fat and sugar, high in protein, whole grain and consists of a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Studies have shown obese men have less sperm in their semen. It is believed that fatty tissue converts testosterone into estrogen and that the excessive weight in the thighs and waist can cause testicles to overheat.
  • Take natural supplements: supplement tablets/capsules containing folic acid, zinc, vitamin C and selenium increases sperm production. (Check out our herbal supplement for men, FertilAid for men – these capsules were formulated to specifically increase sperm count and general health of sperm i.e.: motility and morphology).
  • Treat sexually transmitted illnesses (STI’s). Some STI’s like chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause scarring of the tubes the sperms have to swim through causing blockages. Some STI’s can simply be treated with a course of antibiotics or injections.
  • Have a checkup and ensure you do not have a varicocele. Varicoceles are enlarged veins in the scrotum. Varicoceles reduce sperm production because it raises the temperature of the testicles.
  • Have your hormones checked with a blood test. Hormone treatments will assist to balance your hormones if needed.
  • Exposure to toxins can decrease sperm production. If you work with any toxic substances, be sure to wear the proper protective gear like gloves, masks, etc. Toxic substances can include, to name a few, lead, paint, boron, mercury, pesticides, etc.
