Effects of bitter kola on sperm count

•it is true that bitter cola improves libido and erection. However, avoid eating too much of bitter kola in a day or using it for long period of time as a study also observed that high consumption of bitter kola in can reduce sperm count, sperm motility and sperm quality. That is to say, contrary to widespread beliefs, bitter kola DOES NOT increase sperm count or boost sperm production, rather it decreases sperm count and can cause male infertility. A study conducted in by RESEARCHGATE discovered that bitter cola cause infertility in wristar rats. Scientists believe that bitter kola may cause watery sperm.

•Also the prolonged use of bitter kola treatment may negatively affect sexual behavior
And that’s bitter kola for us,and hope we’ve seen bitter does not only cure cough and sore throat.


Bitter kola for sure is used by many men I have interviewed to last longer in bed because they believe it actually improves their erection and libido…. testimonies abound. However, bitter kola is not really good for boosting sperm count, motility and quality… Bitter kola actually decreases sperm productin. It may be a source of infertility in men. Bitter kola has not been found to reduce sexual activity or fertility in women.
