Sperm quality and fertility rates have been dropping for the past few years, as indicated by several studies. This study states that the average sperm count and sexual health of men has been deteriorating over the years. Some of the causes for this issue include a sedentary lifestyle, odd working hours and many other factors. The real causes of this problem are not clearly known and neither are the ways to reverse it. Experts, however, suggest trying several ways of increasing sperm count and doing it in a natural manner. Here is a list of ways that you can adopt to increase your sperm count naturally. 

Exercise and sleep

Obese and overweight mean are likely to experience lower sperm counts. This condition, however, can be improved with regular exercise. Studies show that doing a 16-week aerobic exercise program for 50 minutes at around 50-60% of your peak heart rate at least 3 times a week can significantly increase sperm volume and concentration in men.


Curb stress

Any form of stress that you experience can hamper your sperm count and also result in mental health and other cardiovascular issues. When you are under stress, the main goal of the mind and body will be on survival and not on reproduction. It is wise to consult with your doctor to help decrease your stress which will also help in getting your sperm count back to normal. 

Quit smoking

There is a multitude of studies that suggest that regular smoking reduces sperm count in men. If you want to have a healthy sperm count, it is best to quit smoking. 


Keep away from excessive use of drugs and alcohol

Researchers have regularly linked sperm health with excessive usage of alcohol and drugs like marijuana and cocaine. Increased consumption of both alcohol and drugs are shown to decrease the sperm count in men. 

Avoid several prescription medications

There are a few prescription medicines which may potentially decrease the healthy production of sperm. Experts suggest that once you stop taking these medicines your sperm count returns to normal.  There are certain antibiotics, anti-androgens, anti-inflammatories, antipsychotics, anabolic steroids that may reduce your sperm count.

What is Ayurveda?

Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole.
