There have been many questions raised recently regarding the spread of obesity and the effect it has on the lives of millions of people worldwide. One such question asks whether weight can have an influence on the quality of sperm in men. While as of yet no studies have been made to make a direct connection between the two, science has already uncovered several indirect links between obesity and the decrease in quality of sex and sperm.
One thing we can say for sure is that those who suffer from obesity tend to be less physically active then healthy people. A lack of physical effort has a large influence on the sex drive since regular activity is crucial to the secretion of testosterone within the body. While testosterone does not directly determine the quality of sperm, it does influence the growth of spermatogenic tissue in the testes which are responsible for the production of sperm. A man who does not get enough physical activity will experience a drop in testosterone levels which leads to a decreased libido. Not only are these men not as interested in sex as they once were but they also do not get as much pleasure from it. This lowered level of testosterone combined with nutritionally poor dietary substances that mimic the effects of the estrogen hormone, can lead to the shrinking of the penis and testicles.
Seriously overweight or obese people also tend to have unbalanced diets that leave out foods rich in zinc. Zinc is one of the most important minerals needed by the human body and can be found in oysters, beans, nuts and seeds. Zinc deficiencies are often marked by hair loss, skin lesions and the wasting away of body tissues. Zinc is very important for the production of sperm and for maintaining both the quality and motility of sperm.
While it is always advisable to stay within a healthy weight range, there are supplements that can be used to increase sperm production. Semen volumizers, as they are sometimes called work to increase the volume and quality of sperm and help boost the sex drive. If you would like to learn more be sure to check out the VolumePills review page for more information. These supplements are very effective but they should not be considered a substitute for leading a healthy lifestyle that includes plenty of rest, exercise and a well-balanced diet.
