Male Fertility And How Black Seed Oil Can Help
We’re going to broach a slightly uncomfortable subject in today’s article about Black Seed Oil.
It’s not a subject that’s easy to talk about for many men. Pride often gets in the way, which can lead to men leaving the issue unspoken.
Of course, that doesn’t solve anything. Speaking to your doctor may feel too uncomfortable as well, which only compounds the issue.
If you fall into that category of men who struggle with fertility issues and struggle to talk about it, the blessed seed may be your solution.
There’s some evidence to suggest that Black Seed Oil can help with the issue. In this article, we’re going to look at the evidence and show you why the miracle seed may be the answer.
The Scale of the Problem
The first thing to note when it comes to male fertility is that it’s not a rare issue. Thousands upon thousands of men struggle with the problem. Moreover, there’s some evidence to suggest that societal change is contributing to a wider male fertility issue.
A study conducted in France highlights the scale of the issue. From 1989 through to 2005, scientists examined the sperm counts of over 26,000 men. The results they found were shocking. During that time period, average sperm counts in men fell by over one third.
At the time of writing, there’s no definitive answer as to why this has happened. Researchers have put forward several theories. These include changes in diet, which have led to more widespread obesity. However, some believe that the trend towards tighter underwear may play a role, as may toxins found in the environment.
Whatever the case may be, it’s not a small issue that’s only affecting a couple of men. It’s a widespread problem that needs a solution.
Why is Black Seed Oil the Answer?
Thankfully, it appears that the miracle seed may again provide an answer. Another in-depth research paper has examined studies into the oil from between 2000 and 2014. It has found that Black Seed Oil seems to have a positive effect on male fertility in a number of ways.
The collection of studies provide evidence that Nigella Sativa (NS), which is the plant from which Black Seed Oil derives, offers improvements in the following areas:
- Semen quality
- Sperm count
- Reproductive organ health
- The balancing of sexual hormones
- The health of your Leydig cells. This are the cells that are responsible for releasing hormones called androgens into your body. These androgens, which include testosterone, are crucial when it comes to male fertility.
Researchers put these positive effects down to the presence of large amounts of antioxidants in Black Seed Oils. In particular, they point to the presence of Thymoquinone, which we’ve spoken about at length in the past.
So, the evidence appears to be clear. As well as helping with your immediate health, Black Seed Oil seems to have benefits for men who struggle with fertility issues.
