In our second episode as part of our Men in May mini series I am joined by friend of the show Kirsty Harrison. We are discussing the impact of nutrition on male fertility.

Kirsty is a nutritionist who specialises in fertility and supports many men with nutrition advice and information to help improve their sperm health.

In this episode we disucss:

  • Processed foods, trans fats, high sugar and caffeine intake, and the lack of essential nutrients can harm male fertility.
  • Why a Mediterranean-style diet with fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and essential fats is recommended for male fertility.
  • The importance of a good breakfast with protein and vegetables is important for overall health and sperm health.
  • Moderation is key when it comes to caffeine and alcohol consumption for male fertility.
  • Staying hydrated and reducing sugar intake are important for sperm health.
  • Alcohol and how non-alcoholic beers may contain high sugar content, which can have a negative effect on sperm health.
  • Vaping, even without nicotine, can have harmful effects on hormone levels and sperm count.
  • A good multivitamin and testing for vitamin D levels are recommended for male fertility.
  • A balanced diet, including foods rich in antioxidants, is important for sperm health.
  • Sustainable lifestyle changes are crucial for improving sperm health.
