If a man regularly eats nuts, he has improved the quality of sperm, reports the Chronicle.Info with reference to the Telegraph.
The quality and function of their sperm-including changes on a molecular level-were measured at the start and end of a 14-week period.
The potential benefits of nuts for men struggling with fertility have yet to be probed.
"Therefore, with regard to this study, I am not surprised that a diet rich in nuts is associated with better sperm".
The findings "support a beneficial role for chronic nut consumption in sperm quality" and reflect a research need for further male-specific dietary recommendations, the investigators said. The researchers write that there has been a decline in male sperm quality of late attributed to "pollution, smoking, and trends toward a western-style diet".
This research comes after an alarming study found that men's sperm counts in the western world have been dropping since 1973.
Infertility affects around 11 per cent of women and nine per cent of men of a reproductive age in the US.
During the 14-week study the men ate 60 grams of mixed almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts. At the molecular level it has also been proposed that the genetic integrity of each sperm cell is essential for successful fertilisation; if DNA strands in the cell become damaged or fragmented, they will be unable or less likely to fertilise an egg and maintain embryonic development.
"Including nuts in a regular diet significantly improved the sperm count, vitality, motility, and morphology, partly explained by a reduction of the DNA fragmentation", scientists wrote in a release. This parameter is suggested as something that is often associated with male infertility.
Improvements in the former group were by around 16 per cent in sperm count, four per cent in sperm vitality, six per cent in sperm motility, and one per cent in morphology.
"We can't yet say that based exclusively on the results of this study", says Salas-Huetos. Not yet, said Salas-Huetos. "But evidence is accumulating in the literature that healthy lifestyle changes such as following a healthy dietary pattern might help conception".
