Walnuts may help increase male sperm count and fertility

Research from the university of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), has demonstrated that eating 75grams of walnuts daily for three months may help to increase men’s sperm count and fertility. 117 health men consuming a typical wstern diet were enrolled in a single blinded randomised study. 59 men ate 75grams of walnuts daily, while 58 men avoided nuts. At the end of the 12 week period significant improvements in sperm vitality, motility and morphology were seen in the walnut consuming group who also showed significantly less problems with sperm chromosomal quality
