Men need superfoods, too. While both guys and gals need a similar balanced diet, men in particular can benefit from certain foods that support sexual health and lean body mass, and protect against the biggest man killers: heart disease and cancer, including prostate cancer.

Oysters are richer in zinc than any other food, and zinc can increase the quality and number of sperm, according to Know More TV’s nutritionist Erin Palinski, RD. (No wonder oysters have a sexy reputation.) The prostate, it turns out, has a high concentration of zinc; research has found that men diagnosed with prostate cancer who have more dietary zinc have a lower risk of mortality than men with less zinc in their diets.
An ounce of pumpkin seeds contains more than a third of a man’s daily recommendation for magnesium, a nutrient men tend to fall short on. Low levels of magnesium can increase C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation and heart disease, explains Palinski. Magnesium may play a role in preventing high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes, according to the National Institutes of Health.
