Benefits Of Black Cumin To Improve Sperm Quality?
Is it true that Black Seed can improve sperm quality?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Black seed, or better known in Indonesia as black cumin (Nigella sativa) is known to have various health benefits. One of the things that is quite often mentioned regarding the benefits of Black Seed is to increase fertility, both in men and women.
In men, according to several studies, it is known that regular consumption of Black Seed for at least 2 to 3 months can help increase fertility. This condition can be assessed from several indicators, including:
Increased sperm cell count
Increased motility (movement) of sperm cells
The morphology (shape) of normal sperm cells increases
Increased volume of semen, which nourishes sperm cells
Improvement of the pH of the semen
Increased levels of the hormones FSH, LH and testosterone in the blood
Although it is known to have various benefits, unfortunately until now there is still very limited research that has tested how much the effective dose of Black Seed is safe for consumption to achieve this good effect on fertility. In addition, the potential side effects of consuming Black Seed in the long term are still minimally studied. Therefore, we recommend that you do not consume Black Seed excessively. It would be much better if you consult a specialist andrology first before starting to consume Black Seed or other supplements to increase fertility.
