Men fertility advice! I am bringing you today the Top Fertility Nutrients for Men planning to become a father! Yes, alcohol consumption and smoking are strictly forbidden especially in men of younger age looking to start a family.
- Zinc: is found to improve sperm quality, count, morphology and motility. A deficiency in zinc reduces testosterone and semen (the less quantity/quality semen, the harder to conceive).
- Magnesium: is an essential factor in many of the processes of sperm production and function. Together with zinc, is found in the prostate in remarkably high concentrations and released into the seminal fluid. A low concentration of both magnesium and zinc in the semen fluid may lead to disorders in male fertility.
- Folate: required for the creation of healthy eggs and sperm as is necessary for DNA synthesis. A deficiency leads to decreased sperm count and motility. A combination of zinc and folate was found to increase 75% the normal amount of sperm in sub-fertile men!
- Vitamin B12/Cobalamin: a natural redactor for sperm DNA damage, it’s essential for overall health, count and motility of sperm. B12 aids with cell replication sperm formation. An essential support that aids the natural process of avoiding damaged DNA production, hence lowering risks of miscarriage based on DNA abnormalities.
- Vitamin C: a natural protector for sperm from free radical damages that also prevents sperm sticking together in clumps, resulting in increased sperm motility and fertility.
- Vitamin E: essential for sperm count, motility, DNA quality and the process of fertilisation.
- Selenium: new research suggests that supplementation with selenium in infertile and sub-fertile men increases sperm count, motility and promotes normal morphology, DNA quality and fertilisation, which makes selenium essential for sperm function.
- CoQ10: scientists believe CoQ10 functions as an antioxidant that blocks actions that can damage cells, supplements of CoQ10 can help improve sperm movement in infertile men, the amount of CoQ10 in the seminal fluid of men has a correlation to their sperm count and sperm motility.
- L-carnitine and Acetyl-L-carnitine: extremely important antioxidants, crucial for sperm metabolism and maturation while showing positive effects on motility.
