You’re not alone if you and your partner are having trouble getting pregnant. Infertility is more frequent than most people realize.
It affects roughly one out of every six couples, with experts estimating that one out of every three occurrences is attributable to male partner fertility issues.
While infertility cannot always be cured, there are certain things you may do to improve your chances of becoming pregnant. A balanced diet, vitamins, and other lifestyle measures can occasionally help with fertility.
This page outlines some of the most important lifestyle variables, meals, nutrients, and supplements linked to better male fertility. According to Healthline
1. Get enough vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential for both male and female reproduction. Another nutrient that may help to increase testosterone levels.
Men who were vitamin D deficient were more likely to have low testosterone levels, according to one observational study.
These findings were validated by a controlled investigation of 65 males with low testosterone levels and vitamin D insufficiency. They increased their testosterone levels by roughly 25% after taking 3,000 IU of vitamin D3 every day for a year.
Although high vitamin D levels are associated to increased sperm motility, the data is mixed.
2. Eat maca root
Maca root supplements have been shown to boost libido, fertility, and sexual function.
The popular plant food maca root originated in central Peru. It has long been known for its ability to boost libido and fertility.
Taking 1.5–3 grams of dried maca root for up to 3 months boosted self reported sexual desire or libido in men, according to several studies.
Maca root has also been shown to boost sense organ performance in studies. Taking 2.4 grams of dried maca root for 12 weeks increased self reported erectile function and sense organ well-being in males with mild erectile dysfunction.
In healthy men, using 1.75 grams of maca root powder every day for three months enhanced sperm count and motility.
Reviews have partially supported these findings, but the researchers cautioned that the evidence is poor and that further research is needed before making definitive assertions.
Furthermore, maca root appears to have little effect on hormone levels. In healthy, fertile men, taking 1.5–3 grams of maca root per day for three months had no effect on testosterone or other reproductive hormones.
3. Exercise regularly
Regular exercise can enhance testosterone levels and promote fertility, in addition to being excellent for your overall health.
Men who exercise consistently had higher testosterone levels and better sperm quality than inactive men, according to studies.
However, excessive activity may have the reverse effect, lowering testosterone levels. This risk can be reduced by getting the correct amount of zinc.
Make getting physically active one of your top objectives if you rarely exercise yet want to boost your fertility.

Gbenga Adeboye: 6 facts about late legendary comedian
Sometimes, when an all important person dies in the society, a part of that person remains here never to be forgotten. For some people, it is their wealth that lingers on. For others, it is their works and achievement. For someone like Gbenga ‘Funwotan’ Adeboye, it was his laughter, his happiness, the very core of his profession, that he left behind.
Needless to say, when Gbenga Adeboye was alive, his happiness was everyone’s happiness. He made big problems into teeny-weeny jokes so that when these little jokes are laughed over, these challenges and mountain-like distresses disappear all together.
Gbenga Adeboye died in 2003, at the age of 44, and since then, the entertainment industry in Nigeria has been echoing with the sound of his laughter and the rhythm of his care free, happy attitude.
Enough poetry. There is no doubt that many Nigerians are well acquainted with Gbenga Adeboye, the famous master of oduology and humour merchant that was at the forefront of comedy and entertainment in his days.
1. His birth and career
Gbenga Adeboye was born on September 30, 1959, at Ode Omu, Gbongan, Osun state. Nigeria. Although very little is known about his childhood, it is known that the late Gbenga started working as a freelance radio presenter for Radio Lagos where he started a very popular programme which was solely meant for Yoruba audience.
The name of the programme which started in 1981 was Funwontan. Later on, clips from the improvised and mostly impromptu shows were cut out and put in nine albums. Some of them include Orisunkunnu 1 and 2, Ph. D Beetle, Funwontan 1 & 2, Oro lati ori ite mimo 1 & 2, Versatility, Aiyetoro, Controversy, Supremacy and Ijinle.
2. Jack of all trades, master of all
Gbenga Adeboye was, during his lifetime, a man of many talents. His craft covered nearly every aspect of the entertainment industry and he excelled in all of them. He was a comedian (he pioneered stand-up comedy) who could make people’s eyes water with his jokes. He was a musician whose songs of ‘unusual genres’ contained in depth lyrics and melody that caused several people to genuflect.
Even more, Gbenga was an activist, orator, prophet, mimic, humorist, entertainer and master of ceremony. It was quite impressive how he was able to use his talent so well within a short time. Better still, through his words, jokes and actions, Gbenga addressed societal and political ills within the society.
3. Man with ‘a name of many colours’
Although Gbenga was christened Elijah Oluwagbemiga Adeboye, nobody exactly identified him by this one name. After his show hit limelight, the humour merchant began to be endued with so many names, too numerous to count. It was as if for every gig or show he did, he got a new name.
Some of the popular names he was identified by include Funwontan, Alhaji Pastor Oluwo, Abefe, Jengbetiele, Itu baba Ita, Alaye mi Gbengulo, One Man Battalion, Jengbentiele, Apagunpote 1, Abefe, Olayinka, Omo Baba Overseer, Awo itu, Baba Ita, Awo Baba Laisi Abesupinle.
About the last name – Laisi Abesupinle – Gbenga often used it a lot on air. He would dye his hair into white, mimic the voice of an old, age-stricken man, and then, attack the ills of the public (youths and adults) head on. That was quite something, right?
4. Godfather in the Entertainment Industry
Apart from his many achievements, Gbenga Adeboye also impacted the lives of many entertainers. He was not a lone ranger, rather, he embraced many people and made them as great as he was. For one, it is impossible to mention the person of Yinka Ayefele without talking about Adeboye.
Also, the likes of Abbey Fagboro, Ereke ni Soobu, Bashiru Adisa better known as Baba Gboin reverence Alaye Mi Gbengulo for the role he played in their career. Even more, Nollywood actress Fathia Balogun came to the spotlight only after she featured as a dancer in one of his music videos.
5. His Miraculous resurrection and death
Before Gbenga finally died on April 30, 2003, he made certain controversial statements in a recorded tape. He said that God had called him to glory at a point in his life. According to him, the purpose of his death at that time was to be shown several mysterious things by the Divine.
Gbenga claimed that he was later sent back to earth by God because he had to complete an unfinished assignment. As if he knew about his imminent death, the entertainer requested that he be buried with the Bible and a hymn book.
6. ‘Omo Majemu’ (Covenant Child)
Seun Adeboye, sister to the late singer, once dedicated a song to her brother. The song which was titled Omo Majemu set out to narrate the life journey of the master of oduology. To surmise the album, Seun asserted that Gbenga was a covenant child.
Her reason for this was that Gbenga, in a strange twist, practically was a Wednesday man alone. He was born on Wednesday, September 30, 1959; began his education on Wednesday, had his first trip to America on Wednesday, and his first radio programme on a Wednesday. He died on Wednesday, April 30, 2003 and was buried on Wednesday, May 14, 2003.
