How to increase sperm count naturally: The higher your sperm count, the easier it should be to father a child. Your Semen is most likely to be fertile when it contains more than 15 million sperm per milliliter. That count can go down when your testicles get too hot, when you’re stressed out, and when you have an STI that’s interfering with sperm production. Luckily, there are many steps you can take to boost your count.
1.Avoid overheating your testicles. There’s a reason your testicles rest outside our bodies: they need to stay a bit cooler than the rest of our internal organs. When testicles get too warm, they aren’t able to produce as much sperm. There are a number of ways to make sure your testicles don’t get overheated:
• Don’t wear tight pants and jeans.
• Wear loose, cotton boxer shorts instead of briefs.
• Sleep without underwear so that your testicles stay cooler.
• Avoid hot baths and saunas.
2.Stop smoking. Smoking cigarettes causes sperm-counts to be lower, makes them move more slowly, and causes the sperm themselves to be misshapen. According to one study, men who smoke have 22% fewer sperm than men who don’t.
3.Drink alcohol moderately. Alcohol affects your liver-function, which, in turn, causes a dramatic spike in estrogen levels. (Yes, men have estrogen.) Since testosterone is directly linked to sperm health and sperm production, this isn’t a good state of affairs. Even two drinks a day will have long-term effects on sperm production.
4.Ejaculate less frequently. Frequent ejaculations can lower sperm-count. Your body produces millions of sperm each day, but if you already have low sperm-count, consider storing them up longer between ejaculations. If you have sex or masturbate daily, cut down on the frequency for increased sperm production.
5.Exercise regularly. Finding out a workable exercise regimen is a tough task in the modern world, but rest assured that exercise will help you produce more-sperm. Exercise releases testosterone into your body, helping with sperm production. Use compound exercises and lift heavy weights, but refrain from working the same set of muscles the day after. Giving your muscles time to rest and rebuild should help you produce testosterone.
6.Eat healthy foods. A diet that’s low in fat, and high in protein, vegetables, and whole-grains is good for your health and for your-sperm.
• Eat plenty of fish, meat, eggs, fruits and vegetables.
• Peanuts, walnuts, cashews, sunflower and pumpkin-seeds are also considered to increase sperm-count.
7.Try supplements. Try supplements that are made from natural herbal ingredients to specifically help the body make more semen. Researchers found that men who consumed 5 mg of folic-acid and 66 mg of zinc-sulfate a day for 26 weeks experienced an almost 75% increase in sperm-count. Folic-acid and zinc-sulfate are critical in the formation of DNA.
8.Reduce stress levels. Stress can decrease your sexual function, leading to reduced sperm production. Try practicing relaxation techniques throughout the day to keep yourself feeling calm. Keep your mind and body healthy by regularly practicing yoga and meditation, or take up running or swimming.
