Jamaicans have long used sea moss as an aphrodisiac and to enhance fertility. Science is only now exploring and learning about the benefits of sea moss, but extensive research into fertility issues of both men and women have demonstrated that some vitamins, minerals and trace elements are absolutely essential for improving fertility. Many of those nutrients are found in sea moss.
Sea moss is particularly beneficial for men. Semen contains a variety of minerals and trace elements required for optimal reproductive health encompassing calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. Healthy sperm also requires potassium and sodium, but zinc is the key ingredient according to the National Institutes of Health.
The body doesn’t store zinc or manufacture it. The nutrient must be obtained through food consumption or the use of dietary supplements. Zinc aids in balancing hormones and maintaining the health of the reproductive organs. Insufficient zinc levels result in low-quality sperm and male infertility.
The recommended daily requirement of zinc is 8 mg. for women and 11 for men. That may not sound like much, but it becomes especially important since the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that one-third of the population worldwide has a zinc insufficiency.
Zinc, or the lack of it, has an effect on the health, viability, and ability for sperm to implant an embryo. The trace element is also required for prostate health. The nutrient is even important before the birth of a male child and his ability to reproduce as an adult. A zinc deficiency in the womb can affect the development of the reproductive system.
There’s some evidence to support that caffeine may interfere with the body’s ability to absorb zinc, even if individuals are getting enough of the trace element in their diets. Foods and or meals that contain protein facilitate the absorption of zinc.
