When most people think infertility often thoughts drift to the woman ; However did you know that 1 out of every 3 cases of infertility is due to the man ?

Here is a few holistic remedies you can do , take and avoid to improve sperm count and sperm mobility . obviously there are many choices here and you don’t need to take them all .. Choose a few that resonate with you .  There is a male fertility supplement ( you can buy on line ) that has a bunch of this stuff in it called – Procreation male fertility support by Nutraceuticals .

Vitamin E-  Essential for reproduction . Good for sperm mobility and from sperm clumping together ( 400- 600 mg per day )

Selenium – 100 mg and best taken with vit E ) helps improve sperm formation great source is brazil nuts

Zinc – ( 50 mg of elemental zinc per day ) Improves fertility , increases sperm count , raises testosterone levels  and helps with impotence. A few foods that are high in zinc – pumpkin seeds , oysters , split peas , egg yolks , oats , ginger , liver , lima beans , garlic, beans , steak and lamb , almond and walnuts .

Maca root – I have all my girls going through fertility on this and tell them to give it their man as well ! – ( Love this magical root ) for men Maca root increases sperm volume , mobility and count as well as increases the libido and sex drive.

Antioxidants –  Eating foods that are a good source of antioxidants  such as Beans , artichoke , pomegranates , goji berries , acai berries , cranberries, blackberries  , blue berries and taking a Good vitamin C supplement  .. can help with sperm quality .  I once knew of a guy who had the reversal vasectomy surgery afterwards his doctor prescribed  high level antioxidant supplement and now has 2 children .

Panax Ginseng and Astragalus – Increases sex drive , sperm volume , mobility and count

The Amino Acid Arginine – Helps with sperm function , blood flow and helps with impotence.

Omega 3 fatty acids – Increase blood flow and enhance sperm mobility

Eat garlic and onions – Believe it or not they are powerful aphrodisiacs . An old remedies to ward off infertility was to cook meals that included using a red onion .

My top yoga fertility pose for both men and woman is lay with you legs up the wall – this floods your reproductive organs with blood which increases fertility in both men and woman . 10 minutes a day morning and night . Great to practice deep belly breathing by placing your hands on your lower belly , breathing in a 4 count slow deep breath and exhaling  a 4 count breath as you let every part of your body relax .


-Smoking , drugs and alcohol as they dramatically decrease sperm count and mobility

-Cut back on caffeine as it has been shown to cut your fertility in half.

– Avoid tight under ware , wear boxers instead .

-No hot tubs or super hot baths

-Stay off the bike

-Avoid excessive stress – Go exercise , do yoga or meditate . find something to help manage your stress .

Limit your exposure to environmental hazards such as , pesticides , heavy metals and mercury .
