There is some evidence to suggest that consuming broccoli may have benefits for sperm health. Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable that is rich in nutrients such as folate, vitamin C, and antioxidants like sulforaphane.
Some studies have found that sulforaphane may help improve sperm quality by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Oxidative stress and inflammation can both have negative effects on sperm health and may contribute to infertility.
One study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that men who consumed a supplement containing broccoli sprout extract saw improvements in sperm count, motility, and morphology (shape) compared to men who received a placebo.
While more research is needed to fully understand the link between broccoli consumption and sperm health, including this nutrient-rich vegetable in a healthy and balanced diet may have benefits for overall reproductive health.
