Healthy Body, Healthy Sperm

Just like a good plant cannot grow without healthy seeds, similarly for a healthy and prosperous progeny, healthy semen is necessary. Semen contains sperm cells add is formed in the prostate glands.

The human body is made of 7 dhatus: asthi, majja, rasa, rakta, meda, asthi and shukra. These tissues are formed and are strengthened gradually in due course of time. Diet plays a very important role in the formation of the seven dhatus. For good health, it is necessary for the all the dhatus to be healthy and strong. Disease free semen is white, has a consistent viscosity, while diseased semen can be yellowish, thin, smelly and even foamy.

How is semen formed?

Ayurveda considers semen to be the most precious of all tissues. Not only does it take the longest to form, it is also the basis of creation. Semen is formed when food is properly digested and nourishes the shukra dhatu. Maharishi Shusruta explains that the process of semen formation starts when food is digested and is converted into rasa dhatu. The process of transforming food to semen takes approximately 30 days.
