Semen Is Good For Your Health And Fights Depression


14 Shocking Health Benefits of Sperm & Semen

Semen is the fluid or casing that holds sperm. Sperm is a cell that floats around in the fluid and reaches the egg to impregnate the female. Semen is quite nutritious and has a bunch of interesting properties. Semen needs to have all of the ingredients to transport sperm to the egg safely. It needs nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories in order for the female not to attack the sperm. We can use the benefits of semen for various health benefits! Read on to see how to utilize some of semen’s benefits.

1) Semen Is an Antidepressant

In a survey of 293 college women at SUNY Albany about intercourse with and without condoms, it was found that those who didn’t use condoms had lower levels of depression and better moods.

This is surprising because risky sex (i.e., without condoms) is usually associated with negative self-esteem and depressed mood.

Among women who “always” or “usually” used condoms, about 20% reported suicidal thoughts, but among those who used condoms only “sometimes,” the figure was much lower at 7%. Among women who “never” used condoms, only 5% reported suicidal thoughts [R, R].

Semen contains many ingredients that could be responsible for this effect.

Probably the most significant one is Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which has potent antidepressant and cognitive enhancing effects.

Semen also includes mood enhancers such as oxytocin, progesterone, endorphins, prolactin, TRH, and serotonin.

2) Semen Is Anti-Anxiety

Semen includes anti-anxiety hormones such as oxytocin and progesterone. It also has serotonin.

Few people realize that a strong driving force of anxiety comes from oxidative stress, which is why it often goes along with brain fog and fatigue issues [R].

Semen contains a lot of antioxidants to combat oxidative stress.

3) Semen Contains Antioxidants and Combats Oxidative Stress

Semen contains a number of antioxidants such as melatonin, SOD, catalase, GPx, glutathione , Vitamin C, vitamin E, pyruvate, and carnitine [R, R].

It also includes hormones/peptides that are antioxidants, such as NGF, oxytocin, and progesterone.

Semen contains uric acid, which is also an antioxidant, but I don’t know if it’s in a meaningful concentration to be medically useful.

4) Semen Is Antiinflammatory

I’ve suffered from a lot of inflammation until I went on the lectin avoidance diet.

Semen contains anti-inflammatories/immunosuppressants so that it’s not attacked when it enters the woman.

Nerve Growth Factor, oxytocin, progesterone, testosterone, and cortisol, and certain prostaglandins are anti-inflammatories. TGF-beta in semen also helps create tolerance to proteins.

5) Semen Contains Many Healthy Hormones

Semen has many good hormones that people are often low in:
  • Oxytocin – has anti-anxiety properties and helps with wound healing
  • Progesterone – has anti-anxiety properties 
  • Pregnenolone 
  • Melatonin 
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Luteinizing hormone (LH) 
  • Testosterone – women can have too low or too high testosterone 
  • TRH – an anti-inflammatory and mood enhancer
  • Cortisol – can reduce inflammation and can be good in pulses 
  • Estrone, estrone sulphate – good if levels are too low 
  • Estrogen, Estradiol, Estriol 
  • DHEA 
  • DHT 

6) Semen May Help Prevent Cancer

Studies suggest that semen might reduce breast cancer by “not less than 50%.”

This effect is attributed to various proteins, selenium, and TGF-beta in semen.

7) Semen Is a Cognitive Enhancer: It Contains Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)

Nerve growth factor (NGF) is important for the growth, maintenance, and survival of neurons, including the axons (the part where the electrical signal passes). It also promotes myelin repair, which is the coating around the axons.

Rita Levi-Montalcini won a Nobel Prize for discovering nerve growth factor and she used NGF eye drops to increase her lifespan and health.

NGF is abundant in semen. Recent studies have found that it induces ovulation (the release of the egg from ovaries) in some mammals, which can help with fertility.

Stress and anxiety decrease NGF.

Low NGF levels are found in atherosclerosis, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

NGF is an antinflammatory and antioxidant, and may be helpful for a variety of conditions including depression, MS, and schizophrenia, among others.

In case you aren’t in the mood for swallowing cum, other good ways to enhance NGF include yoga (even a single 20-minute session) and falling in love.

For the whole-fooders, green tea/EGCG and rosemary (carnosic acid) increase NGF.

For the supplement junkies such as myself, my favorite substances to increase NGF include butyrate, zinc, lithium, berberine, PQQ, vitamin D, and melatonin.

8) Semen May Keep Infections at Bay

Semen contains many proteins with potent antimicrobial activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

9) Semen Can Increase Lifespan

Semen contains spermidine, which has been found to increase lifespan.

Spermidine has also been found to reduce the amount of aging in yeast, flies, worms, and human immune cells by inducing autophagy.

Spermidine is a longevity agent due to its ability to regulate gene expression.

Other good sources of spermidine include grapefruit juice and tempeh.

10) Semen Can Prevent Hair Loss

If the men haven’t been paying attention, I believe I now have your listening ears.

Spermidine has been tested and discovered to encourage hair shaft elongation and lengthen hair growth. Spermidine has also been found to increase stem cells that lead to hair growth.

Your genes have a lot to say about your testosterone levels. SelfDecode lets you in on that conversation. It’s like having your own private geneticist on your computer.

11) Semen Increases Sex Drive

Semen contains testosterone.

Testosterone increases libido in both men and women.

Testosterone gets absorbed through a woman’s vaginal walls and even through the act of swallowing semen.

12) Semen Prevents Preeclampsia

I’ve spoken about inducing oral tolerance by ingesting a food with other substances.

Ingredients in semen such as TGF-beta can help induce oral tolerance.

When a woman swallows her partner’s semen, she will become tolerant to the proteins that are found in his sperm. This is thought to reduce the risk of preeclampsia .

A study shows that oral sex and swallowing semen may help make a woman’s pregnancy safer and more successful.

TGF-beta might also enhance brain function. High blood levels of TGF-beta are associated with increased thickness in certain brain regions in healthy subjects .

13) Semen Increases Fertility

Semen contains NGF, which increases fertility in mammals by increasing ovulation.

14) Semen Is Nutritious

I’d like to mention that most of the nutrients aren’t in meaningful concentrations when you look at each nutrient alone, but on the whole (no pun intended), it’s pretty good.

For example, a normal semen ejaculate contains 0.56 mg of zinc, whereas the average person gets probably 20 times that in their daily diet.

However, since the body only absorbs 20% of dietary zinc, the requirements for zinc should theoretically increase by approximately 2.5 mg after each ejaculation. But, if you are injaculating or swallowing, then you are getting some of that zinc back.

Zinc serves to help to stabilize the DNA-containing chromatin in the sperm cells. A zinc deficiency may result in lowered fertility because of increased sperm fragility. Zinc deficiency can also adversely affect sperm production.
