Walnuts Increase Male Sperm Counts and Fertility

Research from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has determined that eating 75 grams of walnuts a day for three months increases men's sperm count and fertility.

The researchers recruited 117 young men in healthy condition who consumed a typical western diet for this single-blinded, randomized trial. They gave 59 of the men 75 grams of walnuts per day for twelve weeks. The other 58 men avoided tree nuts altogether.

The men's sperm and blood were tested before and after the twelve week trial.
