Celery: Another Killer of Sperm?

After ten years of research, a Thai doctor has found that eating celery reduces the number of male sperm. She tested healthy, fertile young men aged 18 to 20 who ate 75 grams of raw or cooked celery every day. After two consecutive weeks, the sperm count of these young men significantly decreased to the level of infertility, which returned to normal after several months of vegetable withdrawal.

Celery kills sperm because men who eat more celery inhibit testosterone production, which has a spermicidal effect and reduces sperm count. If men overeat celery, they will hinder the production of testosterone, so it will kill sperm, and the number of live sperm will be reduced, which will cause necrospermia.
Celery contains a kind of thing called apigenin, also called apigenin, which is a kind of flavonoid compound. Scientists experimented with apigenin and found that apigenin seemed to be toxic to the testicles of mice and had a negative impact on the reproductive capacity of female mice.
Some studies have shown that raw celery juice can reduce sperm density and sperm motility in mice. However, other studies have found that sperm density in mice has no significant effect, and sperm motility is even better.

However, dosage determines toxicity, and the content of apigenin in celery is usually less than one-thousandth. If the dose of apigenin toxic to mice is converted into celery, which is equivalent to at least 10 kilograms a day for adults, who would eat so much like that? So people have a little exaggerated the toxicity of celery, and fertile men can eat it moderately. In addition, alcohol, fried food, and coffee are actually more harmful to sperm.
Although celery can kill sperm, it should be emphasized that celery is a vegetable with certain health and nutritional value. According to the determination, 100 grams of celery contains 2.2 grams of protein, 8.5 mg of calcium, 61 mg of phosphorus, and 8.5 mg of iron. The protein content of celery is one times higher than that of ordinary fruits and vegetables, and the iron content is about 20 times higher than that of tomatoes.
Celery also contains rich carotene and various vitamins, which are very beneficial to human health. Celery leaf stem contains apigenin, bergenin lactone, and volatile oil. It has the functions of lowering blood pressure, promoting diuresis, invigorating spleen, and enhancing appetite. It can also be used as a dietary therapy for hypertension, arteriosclerosis, neurasthenia, irregular menstruation, and gout.

The leading causes of male necrospermia are as follows:
1. Long-term sexual abstinence: Long-term non-ejaculation often results in very high sperm density, more dead sperm, and poor sperm motility, which is normal.
2. Chronic seminal vesiculitis: When chronic seminal vesiculitis occurs, fructose secretion decreases, and sperm death, which is also an important reason for sperm death.
3. Inflammation of genital organ infection: orchitis, epididymitis, prostatitis, and so on are the causes of spermatozoa. Especially in chronic prostatitis, the secretion is affected, and the trace element zinc is decreased, sperm metabolism is affected, and death occurs. Patients can effectively eliminate the inflammation of the urinary system and improve the sperm condition by taking Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

4. Varicocele: Because of the blood circulation disorder of testis and epididymis, part of the temperature rises, and toxic substances accumulate, which makes sperm motility low and leads to spermatozoa death.
5. Autoimmune factors: Reproductive immunology studies have found that male autoimmunity can affect fertility, and anti-sperm antibodies can affect the production and transport of sperm.
