Raspberry may be involved in protecting the sperm of "oxidative stress"

The high consumption of raspberries can help increase the chances of a man becoming a father. It reveals that the study conducted by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the United States.

The results show that the fruit contains high levels of Vitamin C, a key nutrient in male fertility, and high levels of magnesium which is involved in the production of the hormone testosterone.

According to the researchers, the raspberry can also be involved in protecting the sperm of "oxidative stress".

The research team found that those men over 44, who had a higher intake of vitamin C showed 20% less damage to the DNA of sperm than men who do not eat these substances.

According to the authors, a portion of raspberries provides the same amount of vitamin C of 173 grapes.

They also emphasize that the raspberries are a good source of folic acid, which is known to be essential for the most important phases of female fertility and early embryonic development.

The berry fruit also help to maintain a healthy body weight, which is the key to balance sex hormones and increase the likelihood of conception.
