I’ve written a little bit lately on male fertility (see links below) and I came across (no pun intended!) this interested article today.
It looked at the omega 3 to omega 6 balance in the blood and sperm of fertile and infertile men. This research from Tehran demonstrated that fertile men were found to have blood and sperm levels of omega 3, where as infertile men were shown to have higher levels of omega 6. The authors reported that a higher proportion of omega 6 fatty acids in the sperm was a distinct feature of infertile men. This adds to the already well known fact that balance between omega 3 and omega 6 fats plays a role in many aspects of human health including fertility. By eating more fish and taking fish oil supplements you can improve fertility.
