Walnuts May Improve Semen Quality

Researchers at the University of California found that consumption of walnuts improved the vitality, motility, and morphology of sperm from 117 healthy men aged 21-35 years. The randomized trial found statistical evidence that consumption of 75 grams of walnuts per day in combination with a Western-style diet raised blood serum omega-6 and omega-3 (ALA) fatty acids. This increase in fatty acid concentration is believed to be responsible for the improved sperm quality of the walnut-consuming test group, as fatty acids are essential for cellular functions related to sperm cell maturation.
