🍀 Dark leafy greens like broccoli are a great source of folate. Low folate levels
have been linked to poor sperm DNA stability.

🍑 Pumpkin seeds are a source of zinc. Zinc is essential when it comes to sperm
health as it helps sperm formation.

🌶 Foods high in vitamin C, like red peppers. Vitamin C has been shown to
improve sperm count, sperm motility, and sperm morphology.

🌰 Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium, which is essential for sperm morphology
(shape) and motility.

🍅 Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene and studies have shown it can
boost sperm count and motility.

🦈 Salmon is a great source of oily fish, which is rich in omega-3, improving
both sperm quality and reproductive hormone levels.

Most importantly, reduce your intake of ultra-processed food.
