From the article:
The food: BRAZIL NUTS
The benefit: Shape up your swimmers
Cigarette smoke, air pollution, and other toxins in the air can damage your sperm, altering the DNA inside your cells and possibly increasing your child's risk of birth defects. Your best bet for fighting these pollutants? Call in the Brazilians. Brazil nuts are a top source of selenium, a vitamin that helps keep sperm cells healthy while also helping the little buggers swim faster. When researchers in the United Kingdom had men with fertility problems increase their selenium intake, the men produced hardier, more viable sperm cells.
"Brazil nuts are also a good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect sperm cells against free-radical damage," says Keith Ayoob, RD, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association.
The food: LIVER
The benefit: Boost your sperm count when it counts
It doesn't sound sexy, but ounce for ounce there are few better sources of fertility-boosting vitamin A than liver. Studies show that men who get plenty of A each day have higher sperm counts and perform better sexually than men who don't.
"When your body's low on A, your sperm production goes down dramatically," says Lachance. Liver is also an excellent source of zinc. Your body expels 5 milligrams of zinc -- a third of your daily requirement -- every time you ejaculate, so a single amorous weekend could leave your body's zinc reserves running on empty.
