India has been the treasure for natural medicine science. For years, several Indian herbs and spices have been playing pivotal roles in curing chronic diseases including cancer.

However, during a recent study it has been observed that an Indian dry fruit is not just helpful in preventing a deadly disease like cancer but can also cure male infertility.

This dry fruit is walnut, commonly known as akhrot.

Walnuts are a 'superfood' naturally high in a host of health boosting chemicals, including omega-3 fatty acids, and have already been shown to protect against breast cancer and heart disease.

“For years, the United States government has been on a crusade against fat, and I think it has been to our detriment. Walnuts are a perfect example. While they are high in fat, their fat does not drive prostate cancer growth,” Dr Paul Davis told a leading daily.

On the other hand, it has been observed that the omega-3 fatty acids present in walnuts, plays critical roles in sperm maturation and membrane function.

As per the research, rise in walnut consumption by men also improves their sperm quality, which in turn cures their infertility.

Researcher Wendie Robbins says, “It’s time that we pay more attention to what the male eats around the time of conception”.
