His and Her Foods for Maximum Fertility

Men

  • Vitamin C
    Although studies have found that both men and women with fertility problems have a higher-than-average nutritional deficit, men in particular could benefit from an increase in certain vitamins. For instance, according to a study published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Medicine, men can increase their sperm count by up to 140% by upping their intake of Vitamin C to 1,000 milligrams a day (Getting Pregnant, 2011). Foods high in Vitamin C include broccoli, tomatoes, papaya, mango, and kiwi.
  • Vitamin E and Selenium
    Vitamin C isn’t the only nutrient that can help improve a man’s fertility. A study reported by the Archives of Andrology demonstrated that increased levels of Vitamin E and selenium can help sperm swim better, enabling them to reach the egg for fertilization. Guys looking to increase their Vitamin E and selenium intake should choose foods like nuts, spinach, and sunflower seeds.
