We now know that the male infertility factor accounts for up to 30% of all infertility cases.  In this article we will cover the top 10 foods that increase your sperm count!

While there are other factors to sperm that can cause infertility issues, startling new research has revealed that 90% of male infertility problems are caused by the failure to produce enough sperm.  Fortunately many men can rectify this troubling issue just by changing their diet.

1. Goji Berries

One reason for low sperm production is overheating. Doctors recommend goji berries these as these bright red berries contain powerful antioxidants that improve circulation, combat oxidative damage, and keep temperature levels in the male reproductive organs at an optimal level.

2. Garlic

Mankind has been using garlic to treat everything from the common cold to cardiovascular disease for hundreds of years and now we finally know that this fragrant bulb can also be used to boost sperm count.

3. Asian Ginseng

Men have been turning to ginseng for hundreds of years to improve their virility and now scientists are finally beginning to follow their lead by investigating the medicinal properties of this fabled root.

4. Pumpkin Seeds

A report published in the world journal of chemistry revealed that pumpkin seeds contain protective compounds called fight esteros which can help shrink an enlarged prostate and improves testosterone production.  They are also filled with zinc which also increases testosterone and increases sperm count.

5. Walnuts

If you want to improve your sperm count you’d be nuts not to consider walnuts. These tasty treats are overflowing with omega-3 fatty acids which have been found to increase sperm count and sexual function by improving blood flow to the genitals.

6. Asparagus


Known for its cleansing and healing properties this miraculous green veggie contains a high concentration of vitamin C that protects sperm from oxidative damage and increases sperm volume and motility.

7. Bananas

Everyone knows that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but if you want to keep fertility specialists away, you should probably try adding bananas to your daily routine.

8. Maca


Peruvians have sworn by the mystical powers of the maca plant for years and now there’s finally scientific evidence to support their claims.  You can experience an increase in seminal volume, sperm count per ejaculation, and sperm motility.

9. Dark Chocolate

It isn’t a mere coincidence that lovers celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving gifts of chocolate.  This decadent dessert contains a  powerful amino acid that has been clinically proven to double sperm and semen volume. Dark chocolate can also help motility.  Just remember to eat everything in moderation.  Overdoing it can have an adverse affect if you start to gain weight.

10. Oysters
