In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “How can you get better-tasting semen?” Let’s find out! A question that a lot of men and even women ask is, how can I make semen taste more sweet? It’s important to know what semen is made out of.
Since each ejaculation may contain 200 million to 300 million sperm, many believe semen is just sperm. But that’s not true. It only has 3% to 5% of spermatozoa. Water, plasma, and mucus, the lubricating substance, comprise most of the fluid.
Since the semen must travel a long way and tolerate the harsh environment of the vagina, they need nutrients. When sperm rises to the egg, the nutrients in the semen help them survive and flourish.
Fructose, a form of sugar, is the sperm’s primary energy source. Calcium, citrate, glucose, lactic acid, magnesium, potassium, protein, and zinc are some of the most essential nutrients in semen.
Also, semen pH levels are alkaline, with a range of 7 .2 to 7 .4, to shield against the acidic nature of the female vagina. Because of its slightly alkaline pH levels, healthy-tasting semen can be different from person to person, but it has been described as tasting bitter or salty.
There is a hint of sweetness because it has fructose and metallic because of the essential vitamins and minerals. Can eating foods make semen taste better? What about pineapple? The legend goes that pineapple can improve the flavor of someone’s semen.
Is there any validity to it? It seems reasonable that foods with a more robust flavor or fragrance would, in turn, impact the flavor and aroma of semen, but there’s little to no scientific proof. It may become slightly more sweet if you include pineapples, oranges, and other sweet fruits in your diet, but this is primarily due to the fructose in the semen.
You and you would need to consume many of these foods to notice a change in the taste. But you need to be careful because consuming too much sugar can affect other areas of your health. If you want to change the flavor, try consuming more celery.
Celery is an excellent source of vitamin G, which may help eliminate some of the salty flavor of the sperm. Parsley, wheatgrass, cinnamon, and nutmeg are great spices that enhance the sweetness. Drinking water and staying hydrated may also help with the salty taste.
The more hydrated you are, the milder the flavor it will be. Sulfur-based foods can intensify the bitterness significantly. These foods include garlic, onions, eggs, broccoli, cabbage, radishes, Parmesan cheese, and scallops.
Other factors that intensify the bitterness and saltiness are smoking, drinking too much alcohol, drugs, red meats, asparagus, overeating fast food, and caffeine. But timing is everything. Does eating a pineapple right before intercourse or oral sex improve the flavor?
No, not really. It takes time to digest the food. Your body can take weeks to process these nutrients. It’s essential to have a well-balanced diet because not only can it make it slightly sweeter, but a healthy diet can help you with more robust and longer erections, your semen levels, testosterone levels, and your overall health.
