A study from the UK has revealed a spice found in certain curries such as jalfrezis and vindaloos can improve men’s fertility.
The spice in question? Fenugreek seeds and leaves! Which are often used as herbs and spices in Indian, North African, and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Spice up your sperm with this popular spice
In the study run by King George’s Medical University, 100 men aged 35 to 65 were given a 500g dose of Furosap, a supplement made from Fenugreek seeds, for three months.
By the eighth week, the research team had seen a significant increase in the movement in the men’s sperm. And by the end of the study, the men reported increased sex drive, mental alertness and heart health.
According to healthdirect.gov.au, one in nine Australian couples of reproductive age experiences fertility problems. About two in five have fertility issues due to the man’s sperm.
The King George’s Medical University team in Lucknow, India, said: “Furosap is safe and effective in improving testosterone levels and healthy sperm profile.”
And it’s not just the men who benefit from the boost this spice gives. Fenugreek seed extract has previously improved sexual function in healthy menstruating women.
Incorporate this fun spice into your dishes by adding fresh and dried fenugreek leaves to finish dishes like sauces, curries, vegetable dishes, and soups. There are many options to help with fenugreek seeds that can be used whole or ground. They are often used in spice blends such as garam masala, panch phoran (Indian five-spice), or dry rubs for meat.
