Sweet Help: Raspberries Can Help Men Fertility
Sweet Help: Raspberries Can Help Men Fertility

Research shows that indulging in sweet raspberries can a help men increase their chances of fathering a child. Raspberries are known to be high in content of vitamin c which is key to high nutrient and also have a large portion of magnesium which is needed in production of testosterone.

They also protect sperm from oxidative stress.

Among other findings in the study was carried out by US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is that over age 44 with the highest intake of Vitamin C had 20 per cent less damage to their sperm DNA than men who don’t eat those foods.

Furthermore after conception antioxidants may decrease the risk of miscarriage


Juliet Wilson, a fertility nutritionist, said: ‘Raspberries provide essential nutrients that are known to enhance fertility in men and women.’ reports the
daily mail

A recent study in the USA found that men over 44 with the highest intake of Vitamin C - found in foods such as raspberries, broccoli and potatoes - had 20 per cent less damage to their sperm DNA than men who did not eat those foods.

She said that one portion of raspberries provided the same amount of Vitamin C as eating 173 grapes.

She said: 'Raspberries have not yet been given the 'super-food' recognition of other berries, but they have a comparable bounty of nutrients which shouldn't be ignored.

'Alongside their many health benefits, raspberries are a perfect snack for couples trying to conceive.

'Together with their high vitamin C content - one portion of raspberries provides the same amount as 173 grapes - they are also a good source of folate, which is known to be essential in key stages of female fertility and early embryo development.

'Raspberries provide essential nutrients that are known to enhance fertility in men and women.'


The popular fruit contain folate, a key nutrient during conception and throughout pregnancy.

Juliet added that it is not just the vitamins and minerals in raspberries which are beneficial in the bedroom.

The berries also help to maintain a healthy body weight, which is the key to balancing sex hormones and increasing the likelihood of conceiving.

They have the lowest GI of any fruit, meaning their sugar is absorbed into the body slowly.

This combined with their high fibre content means raspberries are an effective way to control hunger and cravings at only a few calories.
