For me, I don’t really see the idea of increasing semen and sperm volume as a problem, but so many Nigerian men are really fascinated or sometimes even bothered about how they can increase the quantity of their ejaculate.
There are different reasons why you might want to increase your semen volume, it could be because it makes you look more “manly” and confident after sexual intercourse or because it means that more ejaculate means that you would enjoy the feeling of orgasm during ejaculation a lot longer or it could be that you want to get your woman pregnant as quick as possible. So how do you increase your semen volume naturally?
Personally, I have not used any semen enhancer pills to increase my semen load, even though there are so many brands in the market right now. And it is only 1 or 2 products that actually look like there are authentic to me. However in this article, I would be revealing to you a few natural ways that you can use to increase your semen and sperm volume, here they are:
A.) Life Style Changes
1.) Stop Wearing Tight Pants… Wear Boxers Instead!
As ridiculous as this advice might be, it is very necessary. Heat affects your testicles negatively and it affects your sperm and semen volume.
The reason why your testicles are outside of your body is for them to remain cooler than the inside of your body.
So if you are the kind of guy that wears pant, you better switch to loose fitting cotton boxers – give your testicles some breathing air and keep them cool.
2.) Stop Smoking Or… Don’t Even Start Smoking!
Now is another reason why you should not even smoke at all. Smoking reduces your semen volume and also lowers your sperm counts. So, if you want to enjoy better orgasms or you want to get your woman pregnant, smoking is a habit that you should stop right now!
There are studies that have found that regular smokers tend to have lesser semen volume and lower sperm count than non-smokers.
3.) Keep Heat Away From Your Testicles… Seriously Keep Them Cool!
Similar to the advice of not wearing pants but instead going for loose fitting boxers, you should endeavor not to expose your testicles to heat. I am talking about things like hot baths, saunas, steam rooms, showering with hot water, overheated laptops, long rides in cars with heated seats etc
This is because extreme heat affects your sperm production in a bad way… so you would get reduced semen quantity and poor sperm quality. A study in 2007 by University of California revealed that 11 men that stopped taking hot baths regularly had an increase in their sperm count by as much as 500 per cent. Don’t ignore this advice, keep your testicles cool!
4.) Stay In Shape… That Means Get Enough Physical Exercises!
Excess fat in your body tends to affect your testosterone/estrogen levels. This is why you need to stay in shape by engaging in regular physical exercises.
Your internal organs (including your testicles) function better when you have a good blood circulation through your body. Being overweight affects both your sperm and semen production negatively.
You don’t always have to go to a standard gym; you can start doing body weight exercises (squats, press ups, chin ups) right in your own home.
And you can also buy dumbbells to get the benefits of lifting weights – which is more muscle lean muscle mass. If you are too thin, then I encourage you to build more lean muscle mass by lifting weights regularly.
5.) Do Kegel Exercises Regularly… This Helps You Shoot More Semen!
Asides from the numerous benefits of Kegel exercises (also known as PC exercises) like: harder erections, stronger ejaculations, improved prostate health, improved bladder control, dealing with premature ejaculation and being multi-orgasmic, these exercises when you do them regularly would help you in shooting more semen and also increasing the volume of your semen…
Try it out and you would see!
If you don’t know anything about Kegel exercises, then please read my previous article about Kegel exercises and how they can transform your sex life.
6.) Reduce Your Stress Levels… Learn To Relax More!
Even though there are so many situations in Nigeria that we can’t control, you can always find ways to relax your mind and body.
Too much stress tends to affect your testicles’ abilities to produce testosterone which is a hormone that is responsible for sperm and semen production. So try relaxing more to prevent any physical or emotional damage that stress might cause.
Reduce your work hours, start a hobby, try yoga, get at least 8 hours of sleep every night… do whatever is necessary to keep your body and mind relaxed.
B.) Diet Changes
1.) Drink More Water… Keep Your Body Hydrated!
Semen is made up of mostly water and the amount that you release during ejaculation is related to how much water you take, so you are better off being hydrated. Drink lots of water each day, you need at least 8 large glasses (3 litres) of water every day if you want your semen volume to increase tremendously.
If you regularly drink alcohol or coffee then you are going to have to drink more than the recommended 8 glasses (3 litres) of water daily. This is because alcohol and coffee tend to reduce the water in your body.
Also alcohol tends to lower your sperm count because it damages the liver and affects your estrogen/testosterone balance. While drinking too much coffee can cause genetic mutations in your sperm… in other words it can make them deformed!
2.) Eat Foods Rich In Zinc And Folic Acid… They Work Better When Combined Together!
Zinc is a mineral that helps a lot in male fertility, while folic acid is a vitamin (and it also known as vitamin B9) that helps in increasing semen volume. When you combine these two you get a tremendous boost in your sperm count and semen volume.
There is even a research that clearly found out that combining folic acid with zinc increases a man’s sperm count by as much as 74%.
You are better off eating foods that contain adequate amounts of folic acid and zinc. With foods like: Oysters, walnuts, beans, crabs, oysters, beef, liver (cattle), chicken, cereals, green leafy vegetables, legumes, egg yolks and orange juice.
However if you are like me, and you don’t really like changing your diet that much (I eat almost the same food every afternoon), then start taking zinc and folic acid supplements. You can get them at any Nigerian pharmacy and you only need 1 mg of folic acid and 15 mg of zinc sulfate daily.
3.) Consume More Amino Acids… I Mean More Proteins!
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Your sperm head contains large amounts of amino acids, so scientist really believe that taking more amino acids would help improve your semen quality and quantity.
When it comes to increasing your ejaculate look out for these three amino acids:
- L-Carnitine, you get them in red meat and milk
- L-Arginine, you get them in nuts, sesame seeds, and eggs
- L-Lysine, you get them in dairy and cheeses
4.) Vitamin C Also Helps A Lot… Remember To Take Them In Foods Or Supplements!
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps in protecting the sperm cells against free radicals and oxidative stress. Taking vitamin C helps in reducing any occurrence of defective sperm and in increasing the speed of your sperm (when they are inside the vagina).
The Journal of Medicinal Food published in 2006 that in a study the men who consumed 1000mg of vitamin C oral supplements twice a day had a massive increase in their sperm count, motility and quality.
Personally, I prefer getting my vitamin C from oral supplements because it is a lot easier than getting them from diet. If you prefer getting them in their natural form, then eat more: oranges, apples, lemon, lime, cherries and peppers.
C.) Use Semen Enhancers
I put this last because, personally, I have never used any semen enhancing supplements. There are lots of useless products that are sold online today – all of the screaming the same messages. However there are 1 or 2 brands that seem like they actually work in increasing your semen volume.
This is because of the ingredients that they contain. Some of these ingredients include: Selenium, Ginseng, L-Arginine, Zinc, Lycopene, Tribulis Terristris, Maca, Coenzyme Q10, horny goat weed, Allicin, L-lysine and Muira pauma.
Each product has its own ingredients mix. A product that looks genuine enough is Semenax – you can try it for yourself and let me know how it goes!
So whether you want to improve your sperm count or you want to ejaculate more semen during sexual intercourse, these few tips would help you a lot if you try them…
Cheers… and have a great sex life!
