Natural Foods for Men's Fertility

By Steve Silverman ; Updated June 13, 2017

There are many factors that impact male fertility. One of the most important has to do with nutrition. Men who eat balanced diets have the best chance of producing healthy sperm that have the ability impregnate a woman. In addition to eating balanced foods, eating foods that are grown or raised without pesticides, herbicides and other artificial supplements help men reach their fertility peak. According to a British government report cited by the BBC, foods treated with pesticides can cause cancer and have a negative impact on fertility.

Asparagus, Snow Peas and Strawberries

Asparagus, snow peas and strawberries are all heavy in vitamin C and this will help sperm motility and viability. Motility is the ability to swim and make its way to the egg and is one of the most important factors when it comes to conception and fertility. When the asparagus, snow peas and strawberries are not treated with any pesticides according to the British government, this can have a dramatic impact on the man's ability to produce healthy sperm. Have at least one of these foods every day when trying to get your partner pregnant.

Pumpkin Seeds and Oysters

Pumpkin seeds and oysters are very heavy in zinc, which is one of the most important elements when it comes to producing proper testosterone levels and sperm counts. A high sperm count is a key factor when it comes to fertility. The higher the sperm count, the more likely it is that a sperm cell will make its way to the egg and produce a viable pregnancy. Have at least one of these or other zinc-rich foods like turkey, beef, oatmeal or corn every day when trying to get your partner pregnant.

Red Peppers and Carrots

Red peppers and carrots are two natural foods that are highest in vitamin A. Many men who struggle with fertility issues do because the sperm does not swim well or is not likely to swim a long way. The presence of vitamin A is much more likely to help the man produce healthy sperm and battle the sluggish sperm that will not make the full journey. Have at least one of these foods every day when trying to get your partner pregnant.
