With trends drastically changing and several different types of diseases emerging as a major concern, findings in a recent study have suggested that walnuts can help enhance the quality of sperm in males. Males following unhealthy diet have been recommended to include small packet of walnuts in their diet.
The results of the study emphasized that those of the healthy American men in their 20s and 30s, consumed 75g of walnuts in a day, were able to boost the vitality, movement and anatomy of the sperm, in comparison to those who did not eat walnuts.
The study has been published online in the journal Biology of Reproduction.
As per figures, an estimated 70- million couples across the world are affected by male impotence or infertility; it has become more of a common ailment. Out of the total, about 33% and over are considered to be due to the poor quality of sperm.
Majority of reasons have been held responsible for the poor quality, highlighting the modern trends and lifestyle followed and the improper diet, including environmental factors.
The author of the study, Wendie Robbins, of the University of California said, “We tested the hypothesis that 75 gm of whole-shelled walnuts/day added to a Western-style diet of healthy young men would beneficially affect semen quality”.
