Do guys need to take protein supplement after making love to replenish the loss of protein?

There are many ingredients composing semen. A few of the constituent elements: vitamin C, calcium, chlorine, cholesterol, citric acid, creatine, fructose, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vitamin B12, and zinc. The average volume of ejaculate is around a half-teaspoon, of which there is actually very little protein – less than 1 gram of protein. Sex is a natural biological function. Your body will “replace” whatever it needs. There is no necessity to replenish “lost” vitamins and minerals. Your body is not depleted of anything after sexual activity. If you live a healthy life and eat a well-balanced diet there is no cause for concern.
