Special Needs of Men

Adult men usually require more calories than women and, if they wish to become fathers, they should eat a particularly good diet during the four months before the planned time of conception. This may seem a long time, but it takes more than 100 days for the cells in the testicles to undergo the number of cell divisions required to become sperm. At this time smoking and alcohol intake should be reduced or stopped.

Following vitamins, minerals and nutrients are helpful

Vitamins A, C, E, F and Folic Acid are needed for sperm production.

Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Sulphur, Vitamins C and B12 are all present in sperm and may contribute to fertility.

Zinc and Selenium are needed to replace losses in spermatic fluid.

Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6 may help if the sex drive has decreased.
