Adding Nuts to Diet Increases Male Fertility and Sperm Quality

New Study Confirms Nuts Elevate Sperm Quality

A new study at the University of Utah shows that men who add nuts to their diet can highly improve the quality of their sperm.

Adding a mix of nuts to the diet for 3 to 4 months dramatically improved sperm count. The research looked at the molecular process behind the changes in sperm quality after the consumption of nuts over a short period of time.

The trial was conducted on 72 men, 48 of whom were told to add 60 grams of mixed nuts per day to their “Western-style” diet.The remaining 24 men followed their usual diet and lifestyle.

Boost in DNA

Researchers found those who added nuts to their diet showed 36 genomic regions of their sperm DNA that were “significantly differentially methylated” compared to those who hadn’t consumed the nuts.Of those 36 regions, 97.2 per cent were “hypermethylated”. This means their sperm DNA is better prepared to do what it needs to do.
