#4. Semen is antiinflammatory
I’ve suffered from a lot of inflammation until I went on the lectin avoidance diet. Semen contains anti-inflammatories/immunosuppressants so that it’s not attacked when it enters the woman. Nerve Growth Factor, oxytocin, progesterone, testosterone, and cortisol, and certain prostaglandins are anti-inflammatories. TGF-beta in semen also helps create tolerance to proteins.
