- Black Ant Extract. Yes, the Chinese consider this extract which is made from the flesh of the polyrhachis species of black ant an herb. They even call it the King of Herbs. For centuries, emperors and noblemen took it to increase their sperm counts. Black Ant Extract can boost a sperm count because it contains high levels of protein and zinc.

Black Ant Extract is the food with the second highest level of zinc known to man. The 2002 study found that zinc was more effective when combined with folic acid.
- Pine Pollen. Pine Pollen has long been prescribed for infertility in China because it boosts the level of testosterone, a hormone necessary for the production of sperm. Men with low levels of testosterone often have low sperm counts because testosterone promotes the production of sperm. Problems related to low testosterone levels such as fatigue and low levels of energy can also depress the sperm count.
- Nettles. Research indicates that Nettles contain more than 50 compounds that help promote the production of testosterone. Nettles can also help the body from producing excessive levels of testosterone which can also inhibit sperm production. In addition to that, nettles can reduce inflammation which can also interfere with sperm production. In particular, Nettles can block urinary tract inflammation that can interfere in sperm production. Nettles may also block the production of estrogen, the female hormone which may interfere with sperm production.

Such herbs can improve overall health which can also lead to increased sperm production. If you’re willing to change your lifestyle, these herbs could help you increase your sperm production and male fertility.
