While trying to get pregnant, a woman may make a lot of changes in her daily life with the intent to boost her natural fertility. One of the most obvious changes is the food and nutrients she puts in her body. Prenatal nutrients are crucial for a healthy conception and pregnancy. This is also true for men. Men need certain nutrients to boost their fertility and general health. Studies have long shown a possible link between male infertility and underlying health issues caused by poor eating habits and lifestyle choices. There are many things a man can do to prepare his body and boost his fertility health, and one way to do that is to eat well.

Below are three fertility recipes that contain ingredients known to boost sperm count and quality.
