Fertility Supplements for Men

While fertility supplements or prenatal vitamins are often only associated with females carrying a pregnancy, there are fertility supplements for men available as well. Preparing your body for conception is equally important for both parties. 

Can fertility supplements improve sperm quality and motility in males?

Curious about how to make sperm stronger for pregnancy? Just like women or those planning to conceive who take fertility supplements before and during pregnancy for good health while carrying a baby, fertility supplements and prenatal vitamins are also great for sperm quality and motility, especially those that are or contain antioxidants. 

Which supplements can enhance male fertility?

Supplements that are known to enhance male fertility include:

CoQ10 

CoQ10 is a coenzyme that acts as an antioxidant that protects the cells and DNA from oxidative stress. This allows the sperm to reach the egg with a sufficient amount of cellular energy. CoQ10 has also been shown to increase sperm count

L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is naturally produced in the body, and its concentration in sperm is correlated with sperm motility and sperm count. It is derived from amino acids and has been shown to improve sperm health parameters.

Selenium

Selenium is a component of multiple proteins and is an essential mineral with antioxidant capabilities. It also supports DNA and just like CoQ10, protects from oxidative stress. 

Zinc 

Zinc has been found to support and correlate with male reproductive health. Zinc is found in high concentrations in sperm and is necessary for good sperm count, motility, as well as spermatogenesis. 

Folate

Folate in the male reproductive system plays the role of removing homocysteine. While its actual benefit to male reproductive health has been debated through studies, folate has been found in some studies to be key in sperm health.  

The Best Fertility Supplements for Men

It has been found that regarding sperm, oxidative stress and low seminal antioxidant capacity are the causes of about 30%-80% of infertility cases. This is why it's especially important to emphasize antioxidants in your male fertility supplement regimen. See Ovaterra’s AndroEnergen™ Ubiquinol CoQ10 100 mg Fertility Vitamins for Men with VESIsorb®, our collection of male fertility supplements, plus a combination his and hers bundles. After all, healthy sperm is needed just as much as healthy eggs in bringing your baby into the world. Ovaterra is more than happy to help in that journey.
