Heathly Diet: There is good eveidence that a healthy diet improves ann individuals sperm count. The age old advise of oysters might be based in the increase in omega 3 fatty acids and protein from the seafood. This helps overall health and is in no way a "magic bullet" to improve the quality of semen.

Supplements unproven: Men who are worried about their sperm and semen are usually trying to have a baby, so may end up buying and taking supplements advertised to help sperm, just for the extra ounce of hope. The uncertain amounts of l-carnitine, vit. E, folic acid, vit. C, or coenzyme q10 that may be in the supplements, along with uncertain amounts of "other" ingredients, have not been proven to help sperm or semen.

None: I do not have a solution for increasing sperm count. No foods/diet will help in this matter.

Nutrition and sperm: Unfortunately, there are many causes of low sperm counts, although improper diet is not one of them.

To some extent: Stay healthy, eat right, exercise, stay lean, don't take medications or drugs, stay away from tobacco and alcohol, avoid radiation or heavy metal toxins, have good genetics. Sperm count can vary a lot depending upon who is doing the counting. By the way, there are no herbs that will increase sperm count, but many that can lower it. Avoid them and save your money and your sperm.

Low Sperm?: If you are having low sperm at your age then there has to be more to the story. If you are on any hormone supplements or body building products that is the issue. If you have had injury to your scrotum we need to know this. If you just want more sperm then there is little to do to help you. Most 26year old men are just fine as they are.
