In case you and your partner are trying to conceive a baby, or you simply want to pump up your masculine ego as well as have longer orgasms, you may want to work on boosting that sperm production.
A healthy sperm production is a sign of masculinity, good reproductive abilities and means that a man has a healthy production of testosterone.
The first thing you should do to boost that semen production is to quit smoking now! Tobacco use causes a lowered sperm count and lowered size and motility of the sperm as well. In fact, if you are smoker you will have a more than 20% lower sperm count than healthy non-smokers. Not to mention that you have a much higher risk of developing a dangerous and even fatal health condition including: cardiovascular disease, lung and other cancers as well.
Another tip to boost that sperm production is to keep your testicles cool, so that the sperm stays healthy and alive. The testicles are outside of the body for a reason, so throw away those briefs and tight pants, and wear boxers and looser pants to keep the excessive heat away and keep you sperm healthy. For the same reason, you should skip saunas and hot baths, and try some cooler options instead, to treat your sperm right.
Now, here are some of the “super foods”, which are known to naturally boost sperm production and improve sperm health:
Meat – choosing to eat poultry and grass-fed red meat will supply your body with the essential L-arginine and other amino acids crucial for the production of testosterone. Also, meat is an excellent natural source of zinc, which is actually contained in quite large amounts in each ejaculation you have.
Nuts – eating nuts in moderation (because they are very high in calories) will also boost your sperm production. Again, they are excellent sources of the essential amino acids and zinc, so important for testosterone and sperm production.
Grains – again excellent sources of L-arginine L-carnitine and zinc. Oatmeal and other whole grains will improve both the quantity and the quality of the sperm produced.
Leafy green veggies and fruits will increase not only the volume of the semen produced, but will improve its thickness and quality as well. They contain Vitamin E, Vitamin C, folate and are rich in antioxidants.
Oysters – known as a natural aphrodisiac, oysters contain Omega-3 which boosts sexual energy and sperm production.
Water – drinking a healthy amount of water on a daily basis will keep your body hydrated and able to produce more semen.
As a whole, try to stay away from junk food, caffeine and certain types of fish which have high levels of mercury (mackerel, tuna and swordfish) in order to be able to boost your sperm production.
Apart from the dietary tips, there are other tips which will help you boost the production of more and higher quality sperm.
If you want to improve your chances of impregnating your partner, you want to prolong the actual orgasm, or you want to boast with nice thick semen, then you shouldn’t overdo it with the sexual intercourses and masturbation. The rarer the ejaculations, the thicker and denser the semen is.
Cut down on alcohol. The moderate use of alcohol (1-2 units a day) is OK, but binge drinking and alcohol abuse will actually cause more female sex hormone estrogen to be built-up in your body and not the testosterone you need for the healthy production of sperm.
Do some pelvic exercises, such as Kegel exercises to improve your ejaculation quality and boost it. The Kegel exercise is a simple one which can be done anywhere and at anytime. Contract your pelvic muscles as if you are holding the flow of urine for a couple of seconds, then release them. Repeat this 20 times three times a day, and soon you will be able to hold your erections longer and postpone orgasm for a longer lasting pleasure.
You may want to try some natural herbs and supplements, which are known to naturally increase the production of sperm and improve its quality as well.
Some of the well-known such herbs and other natural sperm production boosters include:
L-arginine – a natural sperm enhancer, this amino acid is naturally contained in meat, nuts, seeds and eggs.
L-carnitine – another amino acid essential for the sperm production, also found in meat and dairy foods.
Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed) will help you increase your stamina and improve the production of better quality and larger quantity sperm.
Maca – one of the most powerful natural aphrodisiacs originating from Peru, it is known to improve sperm quality, increase the libido and boost sexual performance.
For your convenience, there are some ready-made all-natural supplements available without prescription and at affordable prices, which combine these and other sperm boosting and sexually enhancing components on the market, such as: Conceive for Him, XtraCum and MaxoCum.
