Gobble up some turkey!

Turkey is an excellent source of zinc, which has been linked to hormonal function and sperm physiology, as well as iron, which is beneficial, as well.

Add some beets to your roast veggies or salad

Beetroot has shown to help improve blood flow to sexual organs in addition to supporting a healthy uterus for embryo implantation, making it just that much easier to indulge in a beetroot salad.
