Do you connect physical fitness with fertility in men? If not, you aren’t alone. Actually… many people don’t!⁣

But, we are here to tell you, there is a correlation between the two in men – here is how… you can increase testosterone levels in men through training methods and tailor-made diets. Improved male testosterone levels can enhance sperm quality and quantity, increasing libido and preventing erectile dysfunction.⁣

Raising testosterone (T) levels won’t guarantee fertility on its own, as this relies on several other factors, such as follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, but it can certainly increase your chances of reproduction.⁣

Exercise isn’t the only factor in increasing testosterone levels, diet is equally important. A healthy balance of carbs, fats, and proteins is crucial. Consuming too little of any of these will negatively affect T levels. It is recommended that we eat whole foods where possible instead of processed food or ready meals.⁣

Here are some recommended vitamins to add to your diet. Listed below are some nutrients that increase testosterone levels and their natural sources…⁣

+Vitamin A: Sweet Potato, Carrots, Tuna, Butternut Squash, Spinach⁣
+Vitamin B: Mushrooms, Quinoa, Almonds, Sesame Seeds, Nutritional Yeast⁣
+Vitamin C: Kiwi Fruit, Bell Peppers, Strawberries, Oranges, Broccoli⁣
+Vitamin D: Mushrooms, Eggs, Cod-liver Oil, Fortified Cereal, Mackerel⁣
+Vitamin E: Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Trout, Shrimp, Olive Oil⁣
+Zinc: Oysters, Poultry, Dark Chocolate, Quinoa, Cashews⁣

The major take-home is that taking testosterone medication, whether topical or oral, is in fact, a sperm killer! It’s very important to tell your Fertility Doctor if you are taking testosterone medication.
