Water - Dehydration is a significant contributor to reduced sperm count.
The average adult male should drink 1 gallon of water per day in order remain

The Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia performed a 12-week double-blind, placebocontrolled, randomized trial in which different doses of Gelatinized Maca were compared with a placebo, the aim being to demonstrate any effect of the Gelatinized Maca capsules on anthropometrical, haematological, mood, energy, sexual desire and hormone parameters in apparently healthy adult men; and a 4-month oral treatment designed to determine the effect of Gelatinized Maca on sperm and semen production in healthy adult men.
Each participant received either 1.5 or 3.0 grammes of Gelatinized Maca a day during the 4-month period of the trial. Semen analysis was performed according to guidelines of the World Health Organization. In addition, blood serum levels of the reproductive hormones FSH, LH, oestradiol, prolactin and testosterone were measured before and after the experiment. Treatment with Gelatinized Maca resulted in increased semen volume, sperm count per ejaculate, motile sperm count and sperm motility. The increased sperm count was not related to dose of maca. Serum hormone levels did not change significantly after treatment with maca. In conclusion, maca improved sperm production and sperm motility via mechanisms not related to LH, FSH, prolactin, testosterone and oestradio.
foods to help increase your sperm count
Beets, liver, Napa cabbage, and lentils - A recent study found that folate (vitamin B9) deficiencies are linked to a low sperm count and decreased sperm motility. These foods contains high concentrations of folate which can increase sperm production.
Eat Your Nuts
According to the University of Michigan Health System, L-Arginine HCL has been clinically proven to double sperm and semen volume. Further studies have shown that it can also improve the virility of male orgasms.
Pine nuts, peanuts, and almonds are the best sources of l-arginine, or you can take it supplementally.
Foods to Avoid
At all costs, avoid genetically modified organisms, IE, GMO foods. The seeds for many gmo fruits and vegetables are able to produce their own pesticides, often at level far higher (over 10 times in the case of corn) than if the pesticides were sprayed. GMO foods can alter the color of healthy testes, and in several studies, have caused total sterility in animals.
Your best bet is to chose organic meats and produce!
Cut back on caffeine -
A study performed by the University Department of Growth and Reproduction in Denmark, showed that high caffeine intake reduced total sperm output by over 33%!
The primary cause of reduced sperm count is overheating of the testicles. Be sure to wear loose fitting undergarments, as well as reduce exposure to heat, particularly hot showers!
Getting enough of these sperm increasing nutrients through food can be challenging. One way to make it easy to get enough nutrients, as well as water, is through juicing. Juicing provides a fast, simple, and powerful pathway to increased sperm production, healthy skin, and a health body!
