Herbs That Increase Semen Count

Today, there are scientifically engineered pills to cure a number of sexual ailments from erectile dysfunction to low sex drive. For those who are interested in taking a more natural approach to boosting their fertility, the good news is that certain natural herbs and tonics that–along with a healthy diet–have been known to increase sperm count. Many not only improve the quantity of sperm, they improve the quality of sperm, while boosting overall sexual health. Horny Goat Weed, for example, does just what you’d expect–it increases sperm count and revs up the libido.

Cardamom

Not just a spice for Middle Eastern dishes, this herb is linked with improved sex drive and increased semen volume.

Ginseng

Long revered by the Chinese, the potent herb has been used for centuries to increase energy. Today, it’s associated with increased sperm counts and testosterone.

Saw Palmetto

This herb–often found in pills at vitamin shops bought to increase sperm count and improve sex drive–is also linked with improved prostate health.

Maca Powder

This root herb, an ingredient commonly found in medicines that combat andropause (the male version of menopause, which is associated with a lower sex drive), is associated with increased production of testosterone.

Astragalus

Some studies have shown that this herb, also known as Astragalus membranaceus, is linked with increased sperm motility.

Horny Goat Weed

The king of herbs linked with sperm production, enhanced libido and impotence, Horny Goat Weed has been used by the Chinese since ancient times. What’s more, a 2008 study from the American Chemistry Society suggested that using this herb thwarts the effects of an enzyme that slows blood flow to the nether regions. Though recommended dosages vary, anywhere from 6 g and 15 g a day has been linked with improved sexual health.

Flaxseed oil

Though not an herb, Flaxseed oil is a natural supplement known to do everything from boost immunity to improve sperm motility. Like omega-3, it’s also an excellent source for essential fatty acids. Recommended dosages vary, but only 1 tbsp. per day is necessary to achieve health benefits.
