Omega 3's and Male Fertility
By Dr. Steve Bennett
A large (1700 men) study in young healthy men in Denmark has yielded some very interesting and profoundly important results
The study found that men who take omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil, salmon oil, krill oil) have higher semen volume, higher sperm count, larger testicular size and improved hormonal ratios as related to male fertility (specifically free testosterone, leutinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)).
With the well documented overall decline in male fertility over the past 50 years throughout Europe, this is welcome news. Declining fertility is not only a concern for the viability of populations around the world, it is very much the ”canary in the coal mine” in terms of the health of our species as a whole.
If at all possible, I urge everyone to find room in their personal health and wellness budget for (at the least) vitamin D3 and omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) from krill oil or fish oil. I assure you the return on investment in terms of reduction in health care costs and improved longevity and quality of life will be well worth the cost.
