7 Foods That Could Be Killing Your Semen
There are some foods that could help you destroy your sperm cells, while there are also many out there that could help you build it.
Below are 7 (seven) foods items that could help you destroy your semen as a man, which might reduced your chances of getting a woman pregnant.
1. Onions and garlic
Strong smelling foods like, onions, garlic and other foods from this family that contain sulfurous compounds, which makes them have their distinct flavour and smell are one of the culprits. Imagine kissing your partner after they’ve had some ‘nyam chom’ with nicely done ‘kachumbari’ … it might not be as appealing as if they’d had ice-cream or chocolate, perhaps. Now imagine what copious amounts of onions and garlic would do to your man’s juices.
Though not your regular vegetable, asparagus, a distant cousin of the onion is classified as a vegetable. It is loaded with essential vitamins, antioxidants and is low in calories. Asparagus contains a sulphurous compound called mercaptan, which is also found in rotten eggs (yuck!), onions and garlic. Once this sulphurous compound in asparagus is broken down by the body, the by-product is usually an unpleasant pungent smell. Consumption of asparagus can also give your urine a distinctive smell. The same chemicals that are responsible for that pungent smell in pee can also affect your semen.
Hmmm… coffee might not be too ideal when it comes to your juices down south. It has been known to leave a bitter taste that’s far from sweet. Semen is naturally salty, so why would you wanna add to it?
Would you believe your favourite brand of beer could make your semen taste bitter? Well, women have reported to having experienced a sharp taste of their men’s juices after a drinking spree. A colleague confided in me that he can’t hit on a woman unless he’s high and I told him I hoped he wouldn’t be expecting oral action.
Smoking alters the taste of your semen. The nicotine in the cigarettes is suspected to be the culprit in this case. I guess it’s the same way kissing a smoker leaves you with that yucky aftertaste, especially if you are a non-smoker. Also, high levels of preservatives in foods and certain drugs, especially those that leave a distinct smell in your urine can also alter the taste.
6. ‘Smelly’ veggies
Missing out on your veggies might leave you constipated but too much of cabbage, broccoli, or cauliflower has the potential to change the taste of your semen.
7. Red meat and dairy products
I know our men love their meat, be it ‘nyam chom, ka-fry, tumbukiza or dry-fry… sadly some studies cite red meat and dairy products as one of the culprits that can make your semen bitter.
