The sperm generation process is particularly sensitive to external factors. These include trauma (heat, physical force), energy, overal stress level, nutrient supply for the developing sperm cells as well as oxidative stress from free radicals.
Research has shown that oxidative stress is probably the single biggest factor for decreased male fertility and DNA damage. The good news is that oxidative stress can be controlled quite easily.
Hundreds of scientific studies have conclusively shown that sperm quality of subfertile men can be improved, sometimes even quadrupled, by the consumption of particular micro nutrients such as antioxidants, specific amino acids, trace elements and vitamins.
When should you consider taking fertility micro nutrients?
Traditionally, fertility specialists used to recommend multi-month nutrient supplementation courses just to men and women as part of their standard preparation for IVF or other fertility therapies. Today, supplements are increasingly recommended to all aspiring fathers, especially at the age of 35 and above, because of their proven effectiveness and affordability (you will find a larger number of study results on this website).
There are no side effects associated with the consumption of micro nutrients. Keeping in mind that sperm cells take approximately 90 days to mature before ejaculation, there is therefore no medical reason not to start as early as possible with a micro-nutrient regimen. This will protect the developing sperm cells and their DNA from excessive oxidative stress.
Which micro nutrients should I take?
A chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link. Most fertility specialists therefore tend to recommend a combination of several nutrients to ensure that sperm cells are of the highest possible quality and quantity.
Amongst the most important micro-nutrients are amino acids L-Arginine, L-Carnitine and L-Glutathione as well as vitamins C, E, D and Folic acid and the trace elements zinc and selenium. With it´s high antioxidative capacity, pine bark extract is also protecting sperm quality.
What are the benefits?
- At less than £40 / €50 per month the costs of male fertility nutrients are low. This applies especially when compared to the high and unpredictable costs of artificial fertilization treatments such as IVF.
- The nutrients support all key sperm quality parameters: count, motility and morphology, volume and protect the sperm’s precious DNA cargo from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
- The ingredients are safe micronutrients, which are scientifically proven in their efficacy. Side effects are not to be expected. It´s not a chemical or pharmaceutical, but natural therapy.
- The nutrients also have other beneficial effects, e.g. contribute to the functioning of the immune system.
