The best foods for man's fertility

Just as there are different harmful habits that can affect the body of man in a completely negative way, and also their own fertility, the diet that man follows daily influences decisively in their ability to have children.

Over the years, a great diversity of scientific studies have shown the importance that, for the fertility of man, has the diet that it consumes every day. Thus, for example, if you opt for healthy and natural foods your fertility is increased and strengthened; which does not happen when you regularly consume foods rich in fats and sugars.

In fact, the number of medical specialists who coincide in pointing out that diet plays a very important role in the quality of sperm, and not only precisely in the quality of the sperm, but also in the quantity generated.

The best? Follow a balanced diet

It is known that following a diet as balanced and varied as possible is fundamental not only when it comes to caring for and protecting our health, and providing our body with all the essential nutrients we need every day, but it also seems to have a very important influence on the fertility of man.

Not in vain, there are certain vitamins and minerals that exert extremely positive effects on the body, and also help when it comes to enhancing male fertility. The most important and outstanding in this regard - without a doubt - are vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E in the case of vitamins; while in the case of minerals, zinc and selenium stand out above all.

Obviously, especially foods such as fruits and vegetables, white and blue fish (for their richness in fatty acids, nutrients also fundamental for fertility), legumes, nuts (such as pumpkin seeds, almonds or nuts) and white meats stand out .
