Men's Health News According to the BBC, new studies show that eating a few handfuls of walnuts a day may improve sperm quality in men. A report in the journal Biology of Reproduction states that one in six couples are infertile, and poor sperm count and quality in males accounts for 40% of that infertility. The study notes that the omega-3 fatty acids in walnuts may have been responsible for increasing fertility in a trial group of sub-fertile men, as compared to a control group of sub-fertile men that did not supplement their diet with walnuts. This is because omega-3s found in walnuts help suppport sperm formation and lead to potentially healthier sperm. The results are still tentative, and further studies are investigating whether walnut supplementation is an effective option for treatment of infertility.
