Want Better Sperm? Eat Some Nuts!

Filed under: FoodHealthScience!Sex

walnuts are good for sperm health

And not just any nuts! Walnuts!

Many have heard eating a citrus-centric diet, mostly pineapple, can make your sperm all tasty and delicious, like having a pina colada machine in your pants. (Penis colada? LOLz!)

For those actually trying to start a family, would-be dads should eat a large handful of walnuts every day.

A new study found that it can boost the quality of the man's sperm. "Walnuts" are good for "yournuts!" Ha!

Over 100 men were brought into a UCLA study where they gave a sperm sample, then half the group ate 2.5 ounces of walnuts every day for 12 weeks and then gave another sperm sample.

Must've been fun giving those samples.

Apparently men's diets and lifestyle can really affect their fertility.

So… tryna have babies??

Grab some nuts! (And eat them.)
