Must-Read: How to Get Stronger Sperm
Most of the key demographic reading this post will not be immediately affected by this, because most of you guys reading this piece probably are not yet in the mindset to have yourself a baby or two. And that’s fine. It really is. No pressure here. Don’t ever want to have kids, that is just fine with us. But some of you — maybe sooner rather than later — will one day want to see the gleam in your son’s or daughter’s eyes. One day, a lot of you are going to want to have children. But you can’t make those babies if you don’t have strong sperm. That’s just a fact.
So today, as a way to inform you folks who are in the process of prepping to put down the video games and nights out boozing and start storing up books and TV shows to watch as you have to stay inside and watch your lads — sounds enticing, we know — we’re, somehow, heading over to the high-brow folks over at The Atlantic, who have the news about a study that links exercise to more active sperm population. Among their findings:
RESULTS: The physically active men had faster sperm, a higher percentage of which could be classified as normal. Their sperm concentration and semen volume were also higher, but the difference did not reach statistical significance.
The physically active men also had higher levels of FSH, which is important for the creation of sperm, LH, which promotes testosterone secretion, and of testosterone itself. Their average T/C ratio was higher as well, and their cortisol levels tended to be lower, if not significantly so.
If you’re interested in the methodology of the study and other things that they found, please, head on over and read the rest of the article. But in the meantime, the big takeaway message from this is that if you’re looking to get yourself from highly-active sperm, first you must better set an example to your swimmers by being highly-active yourself.
