You’re Gonna Love My Nuts!

Scientists are now claiming eating nuts can help your nuts. No, the scientists aren’t nuts.

Recent research has shown adding a mix of certain nuts in your diet, including almonds, can boost sperm quality and support male fertility.

The study, funded by the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council, revealed that almonds, along with other tree nuts, are the best types of nuts to help support male fertility. The researchers found eating 60 grams or two portions of nuts daily, including almonds, “significantly improves” total sperm count and the vitality, motility and morphology of the sperm.

Sperm motility refers to the sperm cells’ ability to swim; sperm morphology refers to the size and shape of sperm. The study, based on a 15g portion of almonds, a 15g portion of hazelnuts and a 30g portion of walnuts mixed together, showed similar sperm quality results as previous walnuts-only research, but with a 16 per cent increase in sperm count.

I’m a big fan of pistachios and cashews, which probably explains why I have four kids.

  1. I used to eat pistachios and cashews by the bucketful in my youth. That could explain why a lot of kids in the Ark-La-Tex and Oklahoma areas that have features similar to mine. (C&W drummers are noted to have the morals of an alleycat.)
