Almonds Boost Male Fertility

Posted on Posted in Diet and Health


Eating seven nuts a day could improve a man’s sperm count and male fertility, say  Italian doctors.

They are testing the theory in a trial of 100 men being treated for male fertility at a hospital in Turin.

One group will add seven nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds or peanuts) to their normal diet; another group will reduce their intake of saturated fat by cutting down on processed meat and dairy products, and increase the amount of polyunsaturated fats, from foods such as oily fish and seeds.

The team at Azienda Ospedaliera Citta della Salute e della Scienza di Torino believe both strategies may improve fertility, as  polyunsaturated fatty acids have been  shown to have a number of effects that help, including reducing inflammation.
