We know that eating fish is healthy for you. Fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, cod, and haddock are chock full of omega-3 fatty acids. Consumption of such fatty fish can help lower cholesterol levels and stave off heart disease and strokes. Fish also tend to be leaner and lower in fat than meat such as pork and beef.
It turns out that there is an additional benefit to eating fish. This benefit will be especially useful for couples who want to have a baby. People who are looking to spice up or improve their mojo will also benefit from eating fish. Here is what the latest research shows.
A study found that men who consumed fish two or more times a week had an easier time impregnating women. Their impregnation rate was about 47% shorter than men who ate no or less fish. Women also benefited from faster pregnancies. Consumption of fish two or more times a week increased their pregnancy rates. It also cut their time to pregnancy by over 60%.
Eating fish was also found to increase libido and lovemaking. Couples who ate fish frequently were found to engage in lovemaking 22% more times than couples who did not eat fish or very little fish. Interestingly, even when couples did not have frequent intercourse, their rate of pregnancy remained high.
The study found that 92% of couples who ate fish got pregnant. The other couples got pregnant 79% of the time. That is a 13% difference which can be significant. This proves that eating fish must make it easier to impregnate and get pregnant.
Factors such as age, activity level, alcohol consumption, and smoking were controlled in the study. It seems that fish consumption is the underlying cause for higher rates of pregnancy and more frequent intercourse. Medical researchers believe that eating fish may help improve the quality of the semen in men. It may also improve fertility in women and thus, help them get pregnant faster.
Researchers are convinced that something about eating fish is responsible for the higher rates of pregnancy and more active sex life. They believe that it must be a biological factor. It cannot be a social factor where people just go out to dinner and order fish together.
