Nutritional Value of Sperm
When people think of the word “sperm” the first thing that probably comes to mind is the word “men”, “sex” even “pregnancy” but does anyone ever think “nutrition”? Well sperm actually has nutritional value to it. Containing many different ingredients such as fructose sugar, water, ascorbic acid (a.k.a., vitamin C), citric acid, enzymes, 150 mg of protein, 11 mg of carbohydrates, 6 mg fat, phosphate and bicarbonate buffers (bases), 3 mg cholesterol, 7% US RDA potassium and 3% US RDA copper and zinc, semen is jam packed with more then just sperm. Usually a typical ejaculation will fill up about one teaspoon, of course the amounts will differ and are determined by a man’s age, the last time he ejaculated, and how long he has been aroused before ejaculation occurs. Sperm comes equipped with 5-7 calories per teaspoon of ejaculate with anywhere between 200- 500 million sperm in each teaspoon (www.columbia.edu). With all these ingredients in semen one would think that “swallowing” in oral sex would enhance a poor nutritional diet but unless a person were to drink gallons of semen a day a single gulp of semen will not help in lacking or poor nutrition. Not only can semen be good for ones health since it is contains vitamin C, but it contains as much vitamin C in a single serving as a full size orange. Semen is a natural body fluid produced solely by men and considered a “divine life giving fluid” by some religions such as the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica who believe in the consumption of semen during mass. With all this knowledge on semen it is hard to look at this bodily fluid the same, it can give life, nutrition and to some, even spirituality.
