Study finds nut-heavy diets produce more sperm

Researchers have carried out a study testing young men’s sperm and found that those who eat lots of nuts are more likely to prodcue more sperm.

Scientists have claimed that healthy males aged between 18 to 35, who have an intake of 60 grams or more of a mixture of almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts, are more likely to harvest stronger semen.

The research presented by Dr Albert Salas-Huetos from the Human Nutrition Unit of the Rovira i Virgili University in Spain, was based on a trial which examined the changes in sperm over a 98-day period.

Sky News reports that the researchers’ results “support a beneficial role for chronic nut consumption in sperm quality”.

The research was carried out after a slump in the quality and production of sperm in western countries.

However, Salas-Huetos said it’s impossible for him to be able to recommend nut supplements to men struggling to have children, “based solely on the results of this study”.

He concluded: “But evidence is accumulating in the literature that healthy lifestyle changes such as following a healthy dietary pattern might help conception – and of course, nuts are a key component of a Mediterranean healthy diet.”
