High-fat, low-protein diet can affect your sperm quality

Did you know that your diet can affect your sperm too? A person’s diet can significantly impact his sperm’s quality leading to harmful gene mutation in his children, Scientists including an Indian-origin researcher have discovered. In two studies conducted on mice, they found that a father’s diet affects levels of specific small RNAs in his sperm that, in turn, can affect gene regulation in offspring. Here are foods that can boost your sperm quality.

In the first study, Upasna Sharma, a researcher at the University of Massachusetts, and her team tested whether the sperm of mice on a low-protein (LP) diet experienced any changes in RNA levels. The findings showed that small RNAs from immature sperm in the testis did not correlate with dietary effects. Sequencing of small RNA in mature sperm revealed significant expression of certain RNAs.

Further analysis revealed that a subset of genes was suppressed, including a gene that contributes to the plasticity of mouse embryonic stem cells. ‘These results demonstrate how RNA in sperm can be affected by diet and that this can cause changes in gene regulation of offspring and associated metabolic disorder,’ the authors noted. 

In the second study, Qi Chen from University Of Nevada’s school of medicine and team fertilised mouse eggs using sperm from a group of male mice fed a high-fat diet (HFD) as well as a group of male mice on a normal diet (ND). This is how Ayurveda helps you conceive faster.

As early as seven weeks old, offspring whose fathers were in the high-fat group developed impaired glucose tolerance and insulin resistance which became more severe at 15 weeks.

 ‘The results add to the growing list of ways in which a male’s lifestyle can influence his offspring, including through the sperm epigenome, microbiome transfer and seminal fluid signalling,’ the authors noted. The study appeared in the
