8 Ways To Boost Your Sperm Count- Natural Support For Your Swimmers


Dr. Bernard Robaire, a professor in obstetrics and gynecology at McGill University, says men produce about 100 million sperm per day—about 1,000 sperm for every heartbeat.

Wanna make a baby? No? Ok, want longer and more intense orgasms? Thought so. There’s more reasons to up your sperm count than getting a Father’s Day card, so here are some natural ways to give your swimmers a fighting chance.


  • Testosterone levels are directly linked to sperm count, size, shape, and speed. A great way to up your T is to exercise moderately. Staying trim (not too light, not too heavy) balances your testosterone/estrogen levels to promote healthy semen, but too much iron pumping can lead to excess stress on your body and therefore lower your amount of maybe-babies. The key is to work out for health, not vanity.

  • Ditch the tighty-whities. Besides ensuring you never get a chance to test your baby makers, your berries need some breathing room and slightly cooler temperatures than the rest of your body. If you’re not too keen on bunching boxers, try a loose fitting boxer-brief. Another trick—sleep naked. It’s easy access, feels good, and ensures proper breathing room.

  • Take the stress down a few notches. Guys have a lot on them and since it’s less socially acceptable for them to bear their souls, things tend to get bottled up. Not dealing with emotional pain leads to an overall downgrade in the health department, and that includes your sperm count. This is not to be taken lightly, and finding a holistic way of dealing with stress will keep you away from sperm-killing chemical drugs for stress related ailments such as high blood pressure and anxiety. Find a way to relax. Don’t be fooled—hot guys do yoga and Skilled Relaxation was created by a man. Get regular massages, go boxing, hunting, hiking; even video games can calm you down and help you deal. ​

  • You squirt what you eat. If you eat the Standard American Diet (SAD as the hoity-toity clean living enthusiasts call it), then your sperm will suffer. It’s important to stay away from pesticides, GMOs, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, and overindulging in alcohol, caffeine, and all smoking (including marijuana. I know, it sucks). There are certain vitamins and nutrients that are vital to your member, including zinc, carotenes, selenium, and vitamins A, C, and E. The best way to get these is through your food, not a capsule. Leafy greens, fruit, organ meats, shellfish, seeds, and cacao are all beneficial ways to get things flowing. Juicing and blending are tasty ways to get in your fruits and veggies.

  • It’s more than just what you eat, it’s also what you put on your body. Switch to organic or homemade shampoo, deodorant, and cologne. Your skin absorbs everything you put on it and sends it all through your body, so a good rule of thumb is if you can’t eat it, don’t use it.

  • Cleanliness is next to manliness, and keeping your boomstick clean is essential to healthy baby making. Daily, thorough cleaning is necessary to keep yourself free of infections that could lead to sterility; especially if you’re not snipped. Fold it back, wash it down, enjoy your sperm.

  • Have sex—a lot. If you don’t use it, you lose it! Now, there is some debate about this one. Some say you should have it every 2 days, some say the longer you wait, the better. I say, the key is balance. You don’t want to go at it multiple times a day, or you won’t have much left. But you also can’t expect old sperm to be as quick and healthy as the new stuff. A regular release is a good way to keep it strong and healthy.

  • Kegels. Yup, not just for women. The benefits of kegel exercise range from a longer shooting distance (as a woman, I don’t understand the excitement of this, but do what ya do), harder erections, and improved overall prostate health. They’re easy to do any time, any place. To understand what muscle you’re flexing, the next time you go to drain the hose, try to stop the flow halfway through the process without tensing your legs, butt, or abdomen. When you’ve stopped the urine, you’ve located the muscles you want to work. The experts say to tense the muscles for 1 – 2 seconds, and do about 20 reps 3 times a day. But let’s be real, you won’t remember to do that, so just do it whenever you think about sex.


Keep in mind that sperm formation takes about three months, so be patient and consistent as you support your swimmers.
