5 Nutritional And Health Benefits Of Men’s Semen: Should You Swallow?

Scientific research and tests over the years have opened our eyes to the many health and nutritional benefits semen offer to women when they swallow some.

Regardles of such studies, some still consider it strictly a “baby making substance”.

In this article, I will be discussing 5 health & nutritional benefits of men’s semen to women.

It has been discovered that exposure to semen is very beneficial to women’s health. All thanks to the mood-altering chemicals this body fluid possesses.

Before we proceed, let us have a better understanding of what semen is.

Semen is a creamy substance, yellowish or greyish in color and it is made up of spermatozoa and seminal plasma fluid.

The spermatozoa makes up about 5% of the semen. They look like tadpoles and they are the reproductive cells that are made up of the genetic information used to create a human offspring.

The seminal plasma fluid, which is mainly 80% water makes up the rest of the semen. It’s job is to carry the spermatozoa to its destination.

To Swallow Sperm: Is It Safe For A Woman To Ingest A Man’s Semen?

The answer here is yes. This is because the elements that make up the semen are safe.

Semen digests just the same way the human body digests regular food. However, in very rare cases, some people might find that they are allergic to semen when ingested. This condition is called Human Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity (HSP)

Keep in mind that you have to be careful when swallowing semen since it may have viruses. These viruses can easily be transmitted if ingested.

Oral sex may lead to sexually transmitted infections (STIs), Hepatitis B and C, as well as herpes. So it’s important to know the health status of your partner before you swallow his sperm, just to be safe.

What Are The Vitamins Found In Semen?

The spermatozoa found in semen, along with the fluids come with a whole bunch of healthy vitamins that are awesome. Ladies, your man’s semen contain the following –

  • Sugar (fructose & glucose)
  • Sodium
  • Citrate
  • Zinc
  • Chloride
  • Calcium
  • Lactic acid
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Urea

The nutrients that come with semen are laced with calories. A single teaspoon of semen (which is the average volume a man releases per ejaculation) measures up to about 7 calories.

As for the taste of semen, well it’s hard to put a finger on that, since it can vary from individual to individual. Some women have said they find the taste salty and bitter, while others have said it’s a bit sugary.

Some researchers are of the opinion that a man’s diet can influence the taste of his semen, but there isn’t any concrete evidence to support that claim. At least not yet.

There are a good number of foods that can even out the taste of semen and make it a lot more palatable. These include –

  • Celery
  • Parsley
  • Wheatgrass
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Pineapple
  • Papaya
  • Oranges

Concerning the taste of semen, well that also varies from person to person, and this could be dependent on factors like the man’s diet, hygiene and health.

The most commonly relatable smell of semen is that of bleach. This is because of its composition, which provides the required pH level where the spermatozoa can survive.

Semen in most cases is neutral or alkaline, around 7.26 – 8.40 on the pH scale. This ranges from 0 (highly acidic) to 14 (highly alkaline)

If the smell of semen is musky, then it could be due to external factors.

Your man’s diet can directly affect the smell of his semen. Just as the asparagus affects the smell of urine.

So ladies, now that you have a better understanding of what semen is and what it’s made of, let’s proceed to discuss the top 5 health & nutritional benefits of men’s semen to women.

Health Benefits of Men’s Semen

1. Semen Elevates A Woman’s Mood

According to a study which analyzed the effects of semen’s “mood altering chemicals”, oral sex makes women feel happier.

Scientists at the University Of New York conducted a study which compared the sex lives of 239 females to their mental health. It was discovered that seminal fluid contained chemicals that elevates a woman’s mood. Strange but true.

Survey results showed that women who were directly exposed to the semen showed significantly better mood behavior and lower symptoms of depression.

Being in a good mood will help you be more positive and productive, it will also reduce stress levels caused by worry.

Give it a try next time you and your man have oral sex, and you’d be “happy” you did!

2. Semen Helps Women Fight Insomnia

Usually, after a good round of sex, it is very common for both man and woman to fall asleep. You may think it’s all the “hard work” that put you to sleep, but it’s not.

Studies have shown that whether you swallow sperm or it enters your blood stream through your vagina, it will help you fall asleep fast, thanks to the chemical melatonin which is found in semen.

This component of a man’s semen is a form of relaxant that helps women be at ease and fall asleep.

So, if you’re a lady who keeps struggling with sleep, then I suggest you swallow your man’s semen (as long as he is virus free). Thank me later!

3. It Adds Extra Nutrients To Your Meals

According to the research of Paul Fotie Photenhauer, semen adds a world of nutrients to your meals.

As I mentioned earlier, semen is rich in minerals and vitamins, and it has been proven that it adds some “extra value” to your meals. Besides the extra nutrients, semen has a great texture so it blends well with food.

Next time you want to make dinner, consider adding some semen to it. It goes very well!

4. Semen Is An Anti-depressant

The chemical components of semen helps fight depression. This may seem strange (or new) to you but it’s true!

Scientific studies have proven that women who swallow their man’s sperm have lower chances of being depressed. This is not to say that semen is the sole answer to depression, it is just a statement of fact that it’s components have anti-depressant qualities.

The nerve growth factor found in semen is a vital hormone that’s missing in the brains of those who have been diagnosed with major depressive disorders. This naturally means that increasing nerve growth factor would make women happier.

To add to that, nerve growth factor has anti-inflamatory and anti-oxidant properties.

Some of the anti-depressant components of semen include –

  • Endorphins
  • Estrone
  • Prolactin
  • Oxytocin
  • Thyrotropin releasing hormone
  • Serotonin

5. Stronger And Healthier Hair

They say a woman’s hair is her “crown”, well I’m sure you’d like to have your crown strong, shiny and looking great all the time. Believe it or not, men’s semen will do this for your hair.

You must have heard of “Keratin Treatment”, where you pay a decent sum of money to put protein in your hair for the benefit of making it stronger. Apparently semen has over 200 different types of protein, these proteins can give your hair the glow and strength you desire.

Semen also has a component called spermadine which can be used on human scalps. Spermadine promotes shaft elongation as well as consistent hair growth.

Some women tend to intentionally keep semen out of their hair during oral sex, mainly because of its stickiness, well think again!

I recommend semen as a natural hair treatment, consider this the next time you want to have a make-over.

Before I leave, I’d like to remind you to consider a few important things first.

  • You may be allergic to semen – As I mentioned earlier in this article, some people (even though very rare) are allergic to semen. Remember when I mentioned Human Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity? That’s the name given to semen allergy. This allergy could lead to itching, hives, chest tightness and difficulty in breathing. Be sure you are not allergic to semen before you swallow!
  • It doesn’t come in huge quantities – A full ejaculation is equivalent to about a teaspoon so you would need a good amount of ejaculation to experience some of the benefits listed above. These results would start to manifest over time the more you swallow
  • Make sure the semen is STD free – This is the most important thing to remember before you ingest your man’s semen. Be absolutely sure that your partner is STD free before you proceed to swallow or ingest his semen. Feel free to go with him to the clinic and do some tests, you’d be more confident this way


Great, so those are the top 5 health and nutritional benefits of semen. Consider these the next time you have oral sex with your man.

This may seem all new to you but it is fact, your man’s semen does have some great nutrients packed up inside which can be beneficial to you.
