Sperm is the male reproductive cell and is derived from the Greek word (σπέρμα) sperma (meaning "seed").
However, do you know that sperm is made up of nutrients that is actually good for both i.e if swallowed or spilled. We at Obiaks Blog have decided to shed light on the benefits of sperm.
What is in sperm?
Sperm is only 1% of semen. The rest is water, mucous, sugar and other acids and bases. According to SemenTherapy.com, semen contains:
ascorbic acid (vitamin C, for tissue maintenance)
blood-group antigens (from immune system)
chlorine (oxidizing agent)
cholesterol (steroid alcohol present in body fluids)
chlorine (base, part of the vitamin B complex)
citric acid (occurs during cellular metabolism)
creatine (nitrogenous substance found in muscle)
deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)
fructose (sugar used for energy)
glutathione (peptide amino acid)
Glycoproteins (cancer fighting agent)
inositol (sugar found in muscles)
lactic acid (byproduct of muscle use)
nitrogen (gas found in all living tissue)
prostaglandins (good for pregnancy)
purine (compound of uric acid)
pyrimidine (organic base)
pyruvic acid (formed from either glucose or glycogen)
selenium (cancer fighting agent)
sorbitol (body alcohol)
spermidine (catalytic enzyme)
spermine (ammonia compound found in sperm)
urea (from urine)
uric acid (from urine)
vitamin B12 (for proper function of nervous system and metabolism)
Health Benefits of sperm:
1. Easing depression and stress
The release from orgasm does much to calm people. It helps with sleep, and that is whether we talk about solo sex or sex with a partner. I kid you not, ladies. Semen is good stuff. It gives a shot of Vitamin A, C, E, zinc, calcium, potassium, fructose, proteins -- a veritable cornucopia of vitality!
2. Relieving pain
Orgasm is a powerful pain-killer. Oxytocin, a natural chemical in the body that surges before and during climax, gets some of the credit, along with a couple of other compounds like endorphins.
3. Boosting cardio health
I can’t resist another plug for semen. It’s possible that male goo can lower blood pressure. Another recent study found that women who gave their men oral sex, and swallowed, had a lower risk of preeclampsia, the dangerously high blood pressure that sometimes accompanies pregnancy.
4. Countering prostate cancer
Over the past few years, several journals have published studies showing that the more ejaculations the better. Now the Journal of the American Medical Association, no less, has reported that “high ejaculation frequency was related to decreased risk of total prostate cancer.” It doesn’t matter how a man climaxes -- intercourse or masturbation. So next time he says, “Really, honey, it’s therapy,” he could be telling the truth.
5. Healing wounds
Some evidence suggests sex can be rejuvenating to the point of helping wounds to heal faster. Several experiments have shown that oxytocin can help even stubborn sores, like those suffered by diabetics, to heal by regenerating certain cells.
6. Fighting aging
Maybe it’s the rejuvenation, maybe the happiness, maybe all of the above. One thing’s for sure: “Use it or lose it” is literally true. Postmenopausal women often suffer from “vaginal atrophy,” which is what it sounds like and can lead to all sorts of complications like urinary tract infections. And one way to prevent it is to have more sex.
7. Increases energy, Increased testosterone can have energy-boosting effects in women.
Sex is a very special way to exercise your body either by yourself (Masturbation) of with someone else (Intercourse). By ejaculating, testosterone releases also helps in increased energy. So one way of not being weak is by ejaculate.
8. Helps with pregnancy maintenance
Another study that states that women who swallow semen while performing oral sex have less of a chance of developing preeclampsia, a high-blood pressure disorder that can come with pregnancy. Some doctors believe That prostaglandins in semen actually Induce labor in the full-term or past- due pregnancy, although other experts believe this semen work connection is only theoretical and That having fri does not trigger labor.
9. Improves the mood (Natural Anti-Depressant)
Although sex is a well known mood enhancer, advantages of swallowing cum also include fighting depression. Semen contains potent antidepressants, which are proven to fight depression. They include cortisol, estrone, oxytocin, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, prolactin, melatonin and serotonin which are all natural antidepressants. Additionally, cum contains oxytocin and estrone, which elevate the mood and leave you feeling happier and more energized. Even better, cum is packed with cortisol, a natural hormone that increases affection. What’s more, cum is loaded with the sleep inducing hormone melatonin, just in case you have trouble sleeping at night. This concoction of potent chemicals should surely chase away the blues.
