Tomatoes have always been one of the essential foods for men to strengthen their yang, but recently, a British scientist recently announced a study showing that drinking tomato soup every day can increase the body’s absorption of lycopene, thereby helping to improve male fertility .
Tomato Soup Helps Boost Men’s Fertility
According to the British “Daily Telegraph” report, researchers at the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Portsmouth randomly selected six healthy men with an average age of 42 and asked them to drink a 400-gram can of tomato soup every day for two consecutive weeks .
The researchers found that the lycopene content of these men’s semen increased by 7% to 12%. It is currently known that the semen content of infertile men is low. Therefore, researchers believe that the enhancement of male fertility is related to the increase of lycopene content.
The results have been published in the British Journal of Urology. It is not known exactly what effect lycopene plays on fertility. Researchers speculate that the antioxidants contained in lycopene may kill chemicals in the body that are harmful to fertility.
Previous studies have shown that lycopene has potential effects on a variety of diseases such as asthma caused by exercise, and can also reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Tomatoes are also considered healthy because they are rich in lycopene, but this is the first time scientists have found that tomatoes help boost male fertility.
