I suppose carrots are sort of the right shape for fertility rituals but now it looks like research has founds that carrots are rich in a chemical which can improve a sperm’s performance and hence male fertility.  So keep munching!

 

Sperm Count

A serious issue …..
to be treated with lucidity,
perhaps a little levity,
but don’t doubt its credibility.
It’s a food with the facility
for improving sperms’ motility
and also its longevity,
reducing its fragility
and boosting its ability
to move with more mobility
and enhance its creativity,
seeking ova with agility
and entering with impunity.
It’s true, it is reality;
carrots improve sperm quality
through lycopene and carotene,
generically caroteroids,
helping healthy sperm avoid
intra-vaginal accidents
via anti-oxidants.
So carrots have utility
in boosting man’s fertility.

Notes:  “The secret to healthy sperm? CARROTS: Study finds they boost performance more than any other fruit or veg.”  Carrots have long been said to be good for your vision. Now, it has emerged, they can also improve the fertility of men.  Researchers investigating the effect of fruit and vegetables on the health of sperm discovered that carrots produced the best all-round results.  Their report said: ‘In a population of healthy young men, carotenoid intake was associated with higher sperm motility, – a term used to describe the ability of sperm to swim towards an egg, and, in the case of lycopene, better sperm morphology.  This boost was attributed to pigments called carotenoids because the body converts some of these into health-boosting antioxidants.  The data suggested that dietary carotenoids may have a positive impact on semen quality.’

  1. Great study. This would force men who don’t like carrots to eat them for the sake of having a better sperm quality. haha. Well, not just the carrots, it would be much wiser to eat other fruits and vegetables because of course they are healthier rather than meat and fatty foods. So don’t just eat carrots for your sperm.
