The standard examination and diagnosis manual for infertile couples, published by the WHO, defines male infertility as "having a history of sexual life without contraception for 12 months without being pregnant."". Recent epidemiological studies have shown that male infertility accounts for about 40% of infertile couples. According to the authority of the United States statistics, in recent years due to the impact of environmental factors and the role of chemicals, has reduced the adult male sperm than in the past up to 50%~70%. Male infertility is the third major threat to human health following cardiovascular disease and cancer in twenty-first Century, according to WHO.
The etiology of male infertility is very complex, including congenital genital abnormalities (such as testicular hypoplasia, penile deformity etc.) and genetic diseases (such as chromosomal abnormality), endocrine disorders (pituitary, thyroid disease, diabetes), varicocele, sexual dysfunction, physical and chemical factors (environmental pollution and the thermal environment on the testis injury, drugs) and aspects of psychological factors etc.. From individual patients, there are many factors influencing fertility, so specific to each specific patient, carefully check, according to different circumstances, individualized treatment, including treatment and symptomatic treatment due to two aspects.
In daily clinical work, almost all of the patients in the treatment of male infertility, will ask the diet taboo, the diet of male infertility is to do a narrative. Men in the male reproductive period can selectively eat foods that are good for improving sperm quality.
Protein: protein is the main raw material to produce sperm. Arginine is a major component of spermatogenesis, arginine yams, eel, squid, walnuts, peanuts, seaweed and other contain more.
Vitamins: vitamin to provide sperm and semen materials, promote the synthesis of sperm generation, increasing the ability of anti infection, maintain sperm metabolism process have an important role in the accessory gland, especially vitamin E, vitamin A can regulate testicular function, increase sperm motility. Animal liver, vegetable oil, tomatoes, carrots, pumpkin, lentils, jujube contains rich vitamin.
Trace elements: trace elements are closely related to male reproductive function, can affect the formation and vitality of sperm. When the trace elements in the body of the lack or lack of content, it will affect the formation and vitality of sperm, zinc in the synthesis and delivery of testosterone and sperm activity and fertilization. In vivo zinc deficiency can lead to male hypogonadism, testes size, sperm production decreased or stagnant. If in Mn deficiency can make man sperm maturation disorder, leading to oligospermia or azoospermia. Selenium deficiency can reduce the energy source of sperm motility and decrease the motility of sperm. We should eat more fish, shrimp, oysters, clams, mussels, kelp, eggs and edible fungus, walnuts, honey, brown sugar, soybeans, more food containing trace elements.
According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, essence is the material basis of human growth, development, sexual ability and reproduction, the essence of the essence, the essence of the day after tomorrow must be nurtured in order to be enriched and expanded.

This is also one of the main causes of male infertility. Diet: 1 shrimp fry chives, shrimp 250 grams, 100 grams of leek, cut.

A former view of the abnormal number of sperm in semen that is more than 20%. Is one of the important causes of male infertility. However, in recent years, this definition is controversial, WHO is defined as the normal form of less than 4% of the disease. In a word, whatever the definition, are abnormal sperm count abnormal increase. In the diet: 1, Sauteed Shelled Shrimp, taking the river shrimp 500 grams, egg 2, dry starch and other spices.

The majority of patients with infertility in the light of the above diet nursed back to health at the same time, also need to pay attention to the following taboo:
Smoking: smoking can reduce the level of testosterone in the blood and the penile artery atherosclerosis. Tobacco contains harmful substances that damage sperm, causing damage to sperm. Through electron microscope observation, a large number of smokers in a long period of time, the performance of the sperm membrane erosion, reduce sperm motility and survival rate. Men who smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day have a birth rate of up to 2.1%. The number of males who smoked more than 20 cigarettes per day, the number of sperm was significantly reduced, and the sperm movement posture and morphology were also obstacles. At the same time, male smoking can increase the abortion rate of pregnant couples to 60%.
Drink: the production of wine to bring joy to the human body, to the health of the human body. But a lot of things, often drinking or drinking and add a lot of trouble with the disease to live. Alcohol can cause testicular atrophy and reduce testosterone levels in the body, thereby affecting the formation of sperm, leading to infertility. At the same time, alcohol has a toxic effect on the normal development of germ cells. Modern studies have shown that 70% of the sperm in men with large amounts of alcohol are not well developed or have a strong vitality. Tao Yuanming, Li Bai, and so on in the history of China are all very clever, but because of the life with wine as the companion, the offspring of extreme intelligence is low. The appearance of "Saturday" in the western countries further illustrates the harmful effects of alcohol drinking on future generations.
Effect of sperm food: 1, Coca Cola, Sprite, strong coffee drinking often have different effects on sperm, worthy of attention; 2, unfavorable edible cottonseed oil, because of its containing gossypol on spermatogenesis has great destructiveness, long time consumption, can make the spermatogenic function disappear; 3, celery and pig bile and other foods will affect sperm quality.
In addition, due to environmental pollution, some heavy metals, such as lead, Mercury will be contaminated to food (seafood is often found on the mercury exceeded). There are long-term consumption of food contaminated by chemical agents, but also an important factor in reducing fertility in men.
Male infertility causes complex, the treatment cycle is longer, need male patients with doctor patient adherence to treatment, to develop good habits, pay attention to personal hygiene, especially genital health. Avoid adverse factors, such as radiation, high temperature, wear tight jeans. Adjust mood, don't worry, increase confidence. A good diet helps to restore his health, but also helps to restore fertility.
The above content hope to be able to help the majority of male infertility patients.
