"Many people's understanding of contraception may be limited to using some contraceptives, but now people have gradually realized that some foods can also have contraceptive effects.". So, what can men eat for contraception? Male health experts have found that if men eat more celery, their chances of becoming pregnant are reduced.
Men Eating Celery Have Contraceptive Effects
From food experience to contraception prescriptions in ancient medicine, modern contraceptives are also a source of inspiration. For example, the American Indians first used lithospermia for contraception, and later developed a mixture of at least three substances called lithospermic acid, which can inhibit the activity of gonadotropins and the development of sexual organs in mice. Another example is feeding wild Indian peas to both male and female rats without offspring. After extraction, it was found that the intermediate dimethylhydroquinone was given to women on the 16th and 21st days of the menstrual cycle, with a dose of 300 to 350 mg each time, resulting in a reduction of fertility by 5 to 60%; Male sperm count decreases by 50% after taking it.
In addition, there are many biologically active plants with contraceptive effects, and their effective ingredients are not yet clear. For example, wild plantain seed extracts have been experimentally proven to have anti implantation and anti gonadotropic effects in rats, rats, and rabbits. Chinese folk foods such as rapeseed, purple nightshade flowers from nightshade plants, and dried dried persimmon stems from persimmons are widely used for contraception, while other traditional Chinese medicines such as white peony, angelica, chuanxiong, and raw materials are also used for contraception by decoction.
After a decade of research by a female physician from the Department of Physiology at Thailand's Sri Tsui Hospital, Dr. Bo Chali has found that celery, which is often consumed and harmless, can reduce the number of male sperm worms. She conducted experiments on healthy, fertile men aged 18 to 20 years old. After they were given 75 grams of celery (about two or three strains) raw or cooked every day for a week or two, the amount of sperm worms significantly decreased to a level where it was difficult to conceive. This situation would return to normal ten to six weeks after stopping the meal. However, this study lacks more precise control experiments.
Celery can reduce the number and vitality of male sperm to a certain extent, and can play a role in contraception to a certain extent. However, it is definitely not the correct method of contraception, because this method of contraception is not absolute, so do not have such a fluke mentality.
