In this short article, we’re going to talk about, what are considered 3 of the most effective, and more important evidence backed methods for improving your sperm count. Drop the tighty whities! You heard me, no more wearing tight underwear and restricting the movement of your testicles. If there’s one thing that’s bad for sperm production it’s being warm, and one of the bodies most effective methods for decreasing testicle temperature is by dropping away from the body. Wearing tight underwear stops this from happening. A study done by Dr Peter Agger at the University Hospital of Copenhagen found that an increase of less than 1 degree for 8 hours a day over a period of 12 days caused spermiogenesis (the process of sperm production) decreased even 39 days after the initial experiment.

Quit the cigs and cut the booze I know, I know, I can see you rolling your eyes from here, but hear me out, I know this seems to be the answer to almost all problems, but there is well-documented evidence about the effects of smoking and drinking in excess. In 2010 a study was done by the Department of Pathology at the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences titled Alcohol intake and cigarette smoking: Impact of two major lifestyle factors on male fertility. They found that Teratozoospermia (a deformation of the sperm) was extremely common in alcoholics. If your little swimmers aren’t shaped right, they aren’t going anywhere!

Light smokers were also shown to have decreased fertility. In their case, their sperm was dominated by Asthenozoospermia, a term meaning reduced sperm mortality. Essentially, the sperm was dying too soon. So it was found that Alcohol altered the shape of the sperm, and smoking, even lightly caused sperm to die far quicker than usual, meaning less were making it near enough to the egg to fertilize it. Go for a run every once in a while! A report published in the journal “Reproduction”, and confirmed by Paco Penne, found that a moderate amount of exercise, around 30 minutes on a treadmill 3 times a week caused an increase in not only the quality of the sperm of the men being studied but also in the actual quantity, in men who were healthy but didn’t previously exercise very much. But, be warned! The study also found that for the men who did intense exercise, classed as an hour on the treadmill instead of 30 minutes, also had an increase in sperm quality and quantity, but not to the same extent. So, what can we conclude? Well, I hope is pretty clear. A healthier you mean a healthier sperm count. Keeping fit, cutting out the cigarettes and reducing the booze are all little things we know we’re supposed to do, and this is just another reason why you should be doing it!
