Fat intake and sperm quality
Men, did you know that your fat intake could be affecting the quality of your sperm? According to an article in Medical News Today, a recent research finds that the amount and types of fat consumed, could affect your sperm count and concentration.
Follow the link below to read more in this regard.
From the article
“A study in 99 American men demonstrated that a high total fat intake is linked to lower total sperm count and concentration. It also showed that men, who consumed more omega-3 polyunsaturated fats, i.e. fats found in fish and plant oils, had better formed sperm compared with those who ate less of these fats. The researchers warn however, that the findings need to be supported by further research to validate the impact of fats on men's fertility given that this study was only performed in a small number participants.”
