In a world dominated by health experts, bloggers, and Instagram influencers endorsing 'fit teas,' it's hard to know which health products to trust. We've been burned by one too many disgusting green shakes to blindly place our trust in health gurus.
That said, we're always intrigued by the newest health craze. And this woman has a recommendation that has certainly piqued our interest.
29-year-old Tracy Kiss, a single mom, blogger, and personal trainer, is advocating for something a little more "out there" than your typical green smoothie: the sperm smoothie.
Mmm can't beat a morning smoothie protein shake, I'll be sharing my secret recipe with you all very soon! There's nothing quite like fresh, natural healthy ingredients to boost your vitamins and minerals, improve your mood and up your nutrition. Our bodies are temples, we are what we eat my darlings so eat clean and live well. Happy Thursday ❤️??❤️??❤️?? #love #peace #namaste #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthybreakfast #healthyeating #vegan #nutrition #nutritionadvisor #nutritionalcleansing #nutritional #food #fresh #fruit #secretingredient #vitamins #minerals #fitness #fuel #picoftheday #thursday
That secret recipe she teases? The main ingredient is manly goodness, apparently.
According to The Sun, Kiss "mixes the semen with fruit, seeds, coconut or almond milk – but is also happy to drink it on its own."
We have a lot of questions. First of all, what does it taste like?
"Every batch tastes different, depending on what he’s been eating," she reports. "He," being her sperm donor, a healthy (and generous) friend who independently harvests and delivers his semen weekly. Don't worry, he gets STI-tested regularly.
Now, back to our main concern: why do this???
Well, Kiss contends that the, uh, all-natural smoothie can fend off viruses — and she drinks it every day.
"I'd been feeling run down and had no energy but now I'm full of beans and my mood has improved," she told Closer Magazine.
It seems worth noting that a doctor interviewed for The Sun's article insists that "there is absolutely no nutritional value to semen," and perhaps vegans should seek out protein in traditional sources.
But that isn't about to stop Kiss, who, to her credit, is curious what her readers think about the practice.
What are your thoughts on drinking semen for nutritional benefits? In a world full of chemicals,… https://t.co/Vvjt7aU4PD— Tracy Kiss ? (@misstracykiss) November 8, 2016
Using semen for nutritional purposes is nothing new to Kiss' routine. She made waves for promoting her nonsexual 'semen facial' in 2014.
She's since defended the practice to Vice:
In relationships, you put fingers in holes, you taste things, and you don't see it as cringeworthy. But when you take away the passion and say it's scientific, people don't like it.
A fair point, but we'll wait until the real science comes through before we start looking for donors for this week's health shake.
