Male Fertility in America

Male Fertility in America

In Decline

Male fertility rates in America have been on the decline in recent years. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of sperm per milliliter of semen in American men has dropped by more than 50% over the last four decades. This decline in fertility has been linked to a variety of factors, including environmental pollution, poor diet and lifestyle choices, and exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Potential Solution 

One potential solution to this problem is the use of the moringa tree's leaves. Moringa, also known as the "miracle tree," is a highly nutritious plant that is native to India and Africa. Its leaves are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and have been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat a wide range of ailments.

Promising Results 

Recent research has shown that moringa leaves may also be effective at increasing male fertility. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2016 found that supplementing with moringa leaf extract improved sperm quality and quantity in infertile men. The study participants, who were given a daily dose of 500mg of moringa leaf extract for three months, saw a significant increase in sperm count, motility, and normal morphology.

More Evidence 

Another study, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2018, found that moringa leaf extract improved semen quality and increased testosterone levels in healthy men. The study participants, who were given a daily dose of 500mg of moringa leaf extract for eight weeks, saw a significant increase in sperm count, motility, and normal morphology, as well as an increase in testosterone levels.

Why it Works 

The mechanisms by which moringa leaves may improve male fertility are not yet fully understood. However, it is believed that the high levels of antioxidants and other nutrients in the leaves may help to protect sperm from damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, moringa leaves contain compounds known as phytosterols, which have been shown to have a positive impact on sperm quality.

More Research Needed 

While more research is needed to fully understand the potential of moringa leaves to increase male fertility, the available evidence suggests that they may be a promising natural solution to the problem of declining sperm counts in America. It's important to note that these studies are small-scale and more research is needed to establish the potential of moringa leaves as an effective treatment for infertility. It's also important to consult with a healthcare professional before taking any supplements, as they may interact with other medications or have adverse effects for some individuals.

Talk to Your Doctor 

In conclusion, male fertility rates in America have been declining in recent years, and environmental pollution, poor diet, and lifestyle choices have been identified as contributing factors. The Moringa tree leaves are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and have been used in traditional medicine for centuries. The research suggests that moringa leaves may help improve sperm quality and quantity, but more research is needed to fully understand the potential of moringa leaves to increase male fertility. As always, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before taking any supplements.

Three Methods for Growing Moringa | Orchard, Hedge, Intensive

Three Methods for Growing Moringa | Orchard, Hedge, Intensive


Moringa Farms in Plant City, Florida. We grow moringa trees! I'd love to share with you today exactly what's going on at the farm. You can see here that we're growing this plot of moringa trees in like a hedge row. I'm going to go ahead and show you some of the different ways that you can grow Moringa. This is actually from some cuttings and some of our cuttings are actually starting to come back here on this nice mulch mound. We're on two and a half acres; everything here pretty much froze back and it's just now starting to re-sprout. Loving that the greens are starting to come back. I'm gonna do a little bit of a harvest for you guys so you can see a little bit later about how to actually and beautiful. .


The first method we're going to look at is the orchard method. We have ours on double staggered rows. The trees are ten feet apart down the row and the row is staggered five feet apart diagonally. This helps them grow to their full height and gives us enough room between trees to harvest easily. It also lets us do things like mow the grass.


The second method we'll look at is the hedge row. These trees are planted 3-7 feet apart. You could use this method as a living fence, as a wind break, or a barrier between your garden and orchard. With them so close it makes harvesting them go a lot faster. But these shouldn't get as big as your orchard style trees. 


iteration and check this out, you can grow Moringa on mounds hey're really close together; like six inches apart. We have a nice little mama Moringa at the end here telling all her little babies how to grow. Look how close together they are. This is a good way to get a lot of biomass quickly. Great for micro green production. A lot of these will die off, and that's okay. Save only the ones that look really good at the seasons end and transfer them to pots to sell or put them in your orchard. 

Bonus: Greenhouse

Moringa Frost Protection in Florida

Moringa Frost Protection in Florida

Why Protection is Needed

for the frost that rolled through a few days ago. It got in the 20s in North 

What We Used

his second and third row here is actually seedlings down the middle and I just covered the Middle with plastic ground covering. That way we can still fulfill tree orders and even get a few greens from these rows over the next three three months. If they rot out and die then we'll have nothing for several months, so it's very important to save these seedlings.

Covering the Rows

plastic out here and then I essentially just dropped it in the middle and that way it just covered  cut back two  off of all these trees so I got a couple kilos drying right now from all the leaves out here. I pretty much got the plastic all in the center. It didn't take long at all. It took us about 10 minutes per row and I did 2 rows. I was able to get the seedling trees covered up.

Did They Make It?


We have two really nice established rows of Moringa seedling trees in the middle of the orchard trees here that I ended of.

First Look

I just left these greens on here for you to see exactly what they'll look like after they get Frost. They are shot. They're still green but within the next day they will all be brown and falling off. It is like a graveyard out here.

Limitations of the Plastic Used

So how can you grow Moringa in a place  plastic ground cover that's usually  plant nurseries, and just cut and It got freaking cold out here so it but definitely not too bad. These aren't as thick as the orchard style trees and it might have gotten too cold and they might have been touching the plastic but  I really feel like this  off. This was my first time ever covering anything. First time ever having any kind of farm or field or Orchard or anything I'm glad that we got this on camera.

A Bit of Damage


I was expecting these leaves to still be perfectly green and not even harmed but this plastic does have some holes in it and some of the cold air could still get in there. It was freezing last night. opened up, take the plastic covering off.

Protecting The Roots

progress and see how they bounce back I'm happy with the fact that the sticks here are still intact so these could still re-sprout and come back. We'll see what they look like in the next couple days after we get through this first cold Frost. I believe that they're going to make a great comeback. A lot of the stalks don't seem to be affected. As long as that water did not freeze getting down to the root then we're good. being able to penetrate down into these brittle little sticks freezing the root system. Even if the stalks don't actually saving the root system. What the plastic covering prevented from happening was the trunk or the little stem from freezing. rot the root. I don't believe any of that happened here from what I just saw going down both of these rows. I'll grab one to see if the root system is in tact or if it was damaged.

Checking on the Roots

That's what you want to see. This is fine. That's all we wanted to do, protect the roots. We just wanted to make sure that this didn't freeze because if this stayed out and this water froze then this would travel down into the roots and freeze and that is what we don't want. We're going to be just fine. We can still ship these out as mature trees in a couple months. These trees are about to be almost a year old now and look at them.
