Is eating fish equal to better sex and fertility?

Let’s include more sea scallops in our diet!

Can we uplift your sex life if we eat more seafood? Moreover, does it improve fertility? According to one study, eating fish is actually capable of achieving better sex.

Consuming more seafood can help boost and improve sexual life and even fertility, according to new research. The study does not demonstrate a causal relationship, but for couples who were characterized by eating fish several times a week were more likely to be knocked in child blessing during the 1st year of follow-up.

Seafood has a number of reproductive benefits, including that sexual activity becomes more common and is more quickly absorbed by the child.He explained Audrey Gaskins, a fellow at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, is the study leader.

For the new study, Harvard researchers watched the lives of 500 couples living in Michigan and Texas for a year: each of them was planning a baby. They recorded how much fish they ate and kept a diary of their sexual activity.

The study found that couples who were more likely to eat fish more than twice a week were more likely to have sex together, 22 percent more likely to have sex than those who did not eat as many fish. 92 percent of the leading pairs in fish eating were expecting a child by the end of the study, compared with 79 percent who consumed less seafood.

However, researchers say that the link between pregnancy and fish loss can be explained not only by more frequent sex, but also by consumption of seafood can affect sperm quality, ovulation, or embryo quality. So to maximize fertility, it is very worthwhile to eat fish at a time when couples want a child.

Dr. Tomer Singer, a reproductive endocrinologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, however, believes the cause-and-effect relationship is unclear. He questions whether couples really forge an advantage from the actual ingredients in seafood. He notes that the results may be random, perhaps the couples were healthier anyway, pursuing a healthier diet.

The fact is, however, that eating fish has a number of benefits: fish has a lot of protein and other nutrients that are definitely good for pregnant women and for those who want to catch it. Many women, by the way, avoid fish during pregnancy, fearing that there is a lot of mercury in it.

However, this study encourages couples to eat fish 2 or 3 times a week. Exposure to mercury can affect the development of children and unborn babies. Some fish have really harmful levels of mercury, such as sharks, swordfish, king mackerel and cod from the Gulf of Mexico. These are better avoided, but for other fish, mercury levels are low enough that you don’t have to be afraid of consuming it 2-3 times a week. Salmon and tuna, for example, are highly recommended.
