Diet: Male Fertility
As we all know, diet affects fertility. Women are always encouraged to eat the proper foods to increase their chances of conceiving but what about men?
There are certain foods men should avoid that could decrease their fertility.
For example since eating high quantities of meat produces ammonia, this can affect sperm activity. Sperm prefer alkaline conditions.
Zinc is also important to male fertility as it helps boost sperm count and testosterone. Therefore Soy products should be avoided because soy affects the absorption of zinc.
Soy has also been known to reduce male sex drive. Traditionally, Buddhist monks ate tofu to lower their libido.
