Drinking wine leads to stronger sperm

5th December, 2013 by Lucy Shaw

Men who drink wine up to three times a week create stronger sperm, a recent study has found.

As reported by the Wine Spectator, the study, carried out by researchers at the Nofer Institute of Occupational Medicine in Lodz, Poland, found that sperm were stronger and had more powerful necks when men drank wine in moderation regularly. 

Stronger sperm are better swimmers, thus increasing the chance of fertilisation.

“The results of the study suggest that lifestyle factors may affect semen quality,” the study, published in the latest issue of Systems Biology in Reproductive Medicine, concluded. 

Increased leisure time, light coffee drinking and the wearing of boxer shorts also improved reproductive strength, researchers discovered.

However, the study found that regular use of a mobile phone for more than a decade decreased the mobility of sperm.

The findings contradict recent research in the UK that claimed lifestyle choices such as drinking and smoking have no influence on reproductive health.
