More Sperm   Leave a comment

Scientists at the University of Sheffield in the UK are studying whether supplementing lycopene (the red pigment in tomatoes) can boost sperm count. Sixty men will be given a daily dose of either lycopene pills or a placebo for a 12 -week study, and sperm samples will be taken over the period.  I’ll let you know what the results show when they publish them.

A previous study in the US showed lycopene raised sperm count by up to 70 per cent.
