Nowadays we are living a very stressful poor-diet life and that affects sperm production, in quality and quantity terms. Also we are mainly based on really polluted environments so the semen and sperm only gets worst and worst year after year.

Some diet and lifestyle changes can help to turn the situation around and improve sperm production and boost the conception rate. But also exist some supplements that can help all men to boost their fertility and are really easy to find.

Some vitamins and Amino acids can help to improve the quality and the quantity of the sperm. It is important to know them before to choose the right fertility supplements.

Zinc deficiency is associated with low testosterone, one of the most important minerals for male fertility. Zinc increases sperm production, improves sperm morphology (the shape), sperm motility and sperm quality.

Selenium

Several studies have shown that selenium is a key element in sperm production, specially in quantity terms.

Coenzyme Q10

In men bodies Coenzyme Q10 helps to produce the energy required to push sperm mobility.

Warning: Vitamin B6 is needed to synthesize the Q10 in its correct form, ubiquinol . It is difficult to consume Q10 only through food and also, on his 30’s the human body can not convert Q10 on ubiquinol so easily, in that moment it may be good to take a supplement when it is need it.

 

Vitamin E

Studies have shown that Vitamine E improves the sperm quality by protecting it from oxidative stress.

Folic Acid

Folic acid is linked to sperm mobility and quantity. Its deficit could cause alterations in sperm DNA, causing birth defects to the new born.

Vitamin B12

The Vitamin B12 increases sperm number and improves sperm mobility at the same time.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that improves sperm quality and vitality.

L- Carnitine

It is a nutrient derived from two amino acids, necessary for a normal functioning of the cells. In the studies of supplementation with L-Carnitine, it’s seen that it helps to normalize the spermatic motility in men with low quality sperm

Omega 3

DHA is an omega-3 group fat that is beneficial to the body. Sperm membranes have a high amount of DHA and, in the case of a deficit, sperm shows greater rigidity and less flexibility of the membrane, making it difficult to fertilize the egg.
