Kuala Lumpur: A Singaporean urologist has claimed that eating a banana every three days can improve fertility in men, according to a report.

According to Sin Chew Daily, the fruit can increase sperm count as it contains high level of magnesium to produce sperm cells, reports the Star Online.

Taking food like cashew nuts, potato, spaghetti and seafood will also have a similar effect, according to the doctor.

He advised men to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking, taking a hot shower or spending time in a sauna as these can affect the production of sperm.
