Fertility Foods for Men

Fruits and vegetables: The antioxidant vitamins found in fruits and vegetables can help protect sperm from cellular damage and keep them strong and healthy– exactly what you need at this time. The antioxidant vitamins are also called the ACE vitamins — an easy way to remember that they are vitamins A, C and E. Find vitamin A in leafy greens, carrots, red peppers, and apricots, to name a few. Get lots of vitamin C in orange juice, tomatoes, grapefruit, and broccoli. And get vitamin E from vegetable oils, nuts and seeds sprinkled over a healthy lunchtime salad. Fruits and vegetables such as leafy greens, beans, and most fruits contain folic acid – a B vitamin with antioxidant properties that’s crucial for keeping sperm healthy.
