This small spherical sweet vegetable has a surprising side effect! If you are trying to have a family perhaps you should skip snap peas for the time being. Seriously, they help fight infections, cancer, lower blood pressure, provide a good source of fiber and help to regulate sugar diabetes, but also lower sperm count. The sweet snap pea contains a sperm-suppressing compound which may single-handedly stop fatherhood.
Trying to sire then skip the stress!
Stress has a huge impact on sperm. Striving, straining and stressing over the lack of results actually contributes to the low sperm count. It also makes the female less susceptible to the sperm. A woman's body is more open to pregnancy during the 3 day "survival period" of her egg. The female's body is acidic
bathing its own walls with an acidic fluid to keep germs from flourishing. These same acids can can kill off sperm when encountered. Dr. John E Eichenclaub recommends using a baking soda douche 2 hours prior to going to bed to make the vagina more receptive to sperm, using 2 teaspoons full baking soda with 1 quart of warm water. If this is the problem results should be seen within 3 months time.
Say you skipped the sweet peas and still have not sired what are the supplements you should be selecting?
Antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamins C and E increase both the sperm count and motility (sperm's ability to swim). Dr. Julian Whitaker advises that large does of the supplement vitamin C in some studies has actually reversed some cases of male infertility. He recommends taking a daily dose of 1,000 mgs of vitamin C along with 400 to 800 iu. of vitamin E and 15 mg (25,000 international units) of beta carotene. Also a zinc deficiency has been known to have an impact on low sperm count so 30 to 60 mgs daily is recommended. A word of caution take your zinc and vitamin C two hours apart as vitamin C blocks the absorption of zinc.
