Zinc for His Dink

Hello folks. Today I wanted to talk to you about infertility. Did you know that the majority of failed baby-making attempts are actually due to a lack of fertility on the man’s behalf, not the woman’s? Oh yes, I’m serious!

MOST INFERTILITY IS ACTUALLY DUE TO POOR SPERM COMPOSITION

So ladies, before trying all those fertility drugs, get your man to eat clean for a few days and try again. Sperm cells regenerate within hours, so every single meal he eats will 100% affect his sperm quality. If you ignore this and go for the fertility drugs, all you’re doing is making an easier passageway for those crap-tastic spermies who would never be able to make it through on their own naturally. I don’t think you want those guys fertilising your eggs! Try healthifying those testes first by ensuring you’re getting the right nutrients in your diet before resorting to other methods.

One of the most notable sperm enhancing nutrients is Zinc. As a matter of fact:

ZINC IS PERHAPS THE MOST CRITICAL TRACE MINERAL FOR MALE SEXUAL FUNCTION

Hormone metabolism, sperm formation, and sperm motility (how hard those suckers can swim) are all dependent on zinc, and a deficiency in this mineral leads to lowered testosterone levels, as well as lowered sperm counts. That’s not even the half of it. Zinc is excreted in semen during ejaculation, which means that a diet low in zinc combined with multiple baby-making (or solo) attempts will reduce a man’s fertility rate even further.

But don’t fret! Zinc deficiency is the easiest nutrient deficiency to prevent. Eating lots of zinc-rich foods, including whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and green leafy veggies, should be enough to keep a holistically healthy person Zincked up.

However, in many cases, people don’t “have the time” or (insert other excuse) to eat healthy, nourishing, whole foods, and deficiencies therefore occur. If this is the case for you, then a therapeutic dose of zinc might be needed in addition to your diet. If you’re wondering where your Zinc’s at, give me a shout and we can assess your nutrient profile. Easy-peasy! In the meantime, take a look at my top 3 zinc-rich foods:

PUMPKIN & SQUASH SEEDS

For every hundred grams of these yummy treats, you get about 10mg of zinc. So save the seeds and spread some seed. 😉

SESAME SEEDS

With 8mg per tablespoon of these babies, you can be sure that sesame seeds are a man’s best friend. Add them to anything: Salads, soups, smoothies, and more.

OYSTERS

In just 6 Wild Eastern oysters you will get 182mg of zinc! That’s a whole lot of sperm enhancement. No wonder oysters are an aphrodisiac!

Okay love birds, now that you’ve got some zinc-rich foods to play with, get experimental! Mix them up – the more sources, the better. You’ll be baby-making in no time!
