We’ve all been there at some time or another, the orgasms are still as intense, but it seems we’re running on empty in the white stuff department. Dwindling supplies of semen can happen for a plethora of reasons.
Maybe you’ve noticed that with age your body has become unable to produce as much semen as it did when you were younger. Or, perhaps as a result of your insatiable sexual appetite, your body is unable to bridge the gap between supply and demand. Whether genetic or otherwise, all men can experience a reduction in their semen volume at some point in their lives, and it’s usually nothing to worry or obsess about.
While being short on semen may have no direct impact on your sexual function or performance in the bedroom, it may have an effect on your self esteem and confidence. And it’s primarily because of these confidence related issues, that more and more semen improvement products now litter the male enhancement marketplace.
These mystical pills supposedly filled with rare plant substances gathered by monks from some of the most remote places in the world, not only promise to add inches to your manhood, but also promise to help you blow bigger loads, thus enabling you to radiate and bask in a renewed sense of masculinity.
For this article we’ll free ourselves from the disillusion that magical pills and beans hold the answer to everything, and instead focus on proven everyday methods that can help you manufacture more semen.
Maybe days or weeks have passed since you last ejaculated, and then you explode like a volcano producing more semen than you normally would do with several orgasms combined. Well, this neat little trick is purely one of abstinence, that will surely impress you and possibly your partner more than any pill on the market. However, some individuals can often reach the point of diminishing returns sooner rather than later. Meaning that 3 or 4 days may provide the optimal peak point of volume, and anything longer is pleasure foregone.
What does edging mean? The concise explanation for edging would be the purposeful act of building your orgasm up to the point of climax and then balancing on the edge. The more series of build ups you get, the bigger your orgasm will be. Edging can sometimes be a highly disciplined act for many men to master, due to the self control needed. But the reward makes the wait a blissfully worthwhile one.
Another important factor in helping to keep your semen levels high is your general physical health, specifically, what you put in to your body. A good diet and plenty of water will ensure your body has all it needs to produce plenty of semen.
Zinc is a big player in the semen volume and testosterone stakes. If you’re unable to consume the quantities needed from food alone, think about supplements. The optimal daily allowance is about 20mg, with the average diet giving you about 10mg.
If you do decide to ramp this amount up beyond the optimal amount, then do so only for short periods before giving your body a break. Amounts which continuously exceed 100mg daily may prove more harmful than beneficial in the long run.
A lot of men swear by celery for helping to improve their semen levels. On the surface it sounds like a bit of an old wife’s tale. But nevertheless, there are numerous accounts of men online who say that by consuming 3-4 stalks a day (often coated in peanut butter) they saw an increase in their semen amount.
Protein intake has been linked to semen volume, so its likely that the rich abundance of protein found in nuts could explain some of this increase in semen. Of course, one should always be wary of claims when connected to brand names, but there’s no monetary motivation for individuals espousing the benefits of celery and peanut butter! Unless its a celery farmer with acres of the green crop he just can’t sell.

Maca is a plant from Peru where the people swear by its powers. In a 12 week study, men took 1,500 to 3,000 milligrams of maca extract per day. They reported increased semen quantity, sperm volume and sperm motility. The trial subjects also reported an increase in sexual desire. However, there are many different strains, grades and strengths out there, so trying to find the right one that offers good results can be a bit of a hit and miss affair.
