Is their a natural solution to lower the sperm count?

Low sperm count can be a very embarrassing situation for a man. Not only can this become an issue when the man is trying to produce a child, but it has a deeper, more psychological affect on the man. Socially too, a low sperm count is considered to be a failure on the part of a man and is considered very deriding. There are no fixed reasons for a man to have a low sperm count. Every man has different reasons for this problem and solution too can only be found once the exact problem is identified.

Sperms are manufactured within the testes, and they need a very healthy environment to be produced in healthy quantities. The production of sperm is dependent on many factors. However, the environmental factors that affect the sperm matter the most. Inadequate diet, excessive stress, and over heating or stress in the groin area can lead to a fallen sperm count. Usually, the first thing to be examined in such a case is the diet. Foods that are processed, refined, or fatty should be avoided. Similarly, foods with high sugar content are also not good for the health. Caffeinated drinks also have a role to play in decreasing the sperm count. Not only is it necessary, therefore, to abstain from such foods, but it is also important to include a healthy, balanced diet that is rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and zinc. Increased intake of vitamins like vitamins C, E, and B12 can help increase the sperm count. Add raw pumpkin and sunflower seeds to your diet to see improvement in fertility. The second important thing to check is the stress levels. Stress is a major contributing factor towards the decrease in sperm count. When our stress levels are high, the hormones tend to go haywire, and many of the nutrients that are vital for the production of sperm cells get consumed. Exercising and yoga are powerful stress busters. You can try either of these to get a calming effect in your life.

If you are in a habit of wearing very tight underwear or have a very hot bath, the production of the sperm cells can get affected. To increase the sperm count, it is best to wear loose clothing that allows air to pass through and take bath with cool water. Overheating of the groin kills the stored sperm cells, and also hinders the production of new ones.
