There are several types of dietary supplements for men and their fertility. Approximately 4 out of 10 Danish men today have issues with their sperm cell concentration, meaning that they fall below the "normal" threshold of 40 million sperm cells per milliliter of semen. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to improve sperm quality because a man produces new sperm cells approximately every three months, and those sperm cells are influenced by the lifestyle he has had in the past three months. In addition to making lifestyle changes, men can also take dietary supplements for male fertility in an attempt to improve sperm quality with vitamins. Below is an overview of vitamins for male fertility:
Research from Rigshospitalet has shown that additional supplementation of vitamin D has a positive effect on sperm production in infertile men with severe vitamin D deficiency. If the man does not have a deficiency or only has mild deficiency of vitamin D, then supplementation of vitamin D has no effect on fertility. Find our vitamin D supplements here.
Before a sperm cell can reach the woman's egg and fertilize it, the sperm cell needs to be able to move. The sperm cell needs to be motile. Research has shown that a daily supplement of selenium can have an impact on the formation of normal motile sperm cells. A low selenium content in a man's sperm increases the risk of reduced fertility. This is because selenium-dependent enzymes protect the sperm cell and its tail structure, where whip-like movements propel the sperm cell forward. Selenium is also an important antioxidant that protects the sperm cell from damage.
A substance that appears to play a crucial role in the functionality of sperm cells is coenzyme Q10. Several studies have been published involving infertile men, showing that Q10 treatment led to improvements in the number of sperm cells as well as the shape and motility of the sperm cells. The results are supported by conclusions from other researchers indicating that Q10 treatment can lead to a significant improvement in sperm quality. Furthermore, the results also indicate that Q10 can play a positive role in the treatment of reduced motility, i.e., the sperm cells' ability to actively move to reach the uterus and fertilize a potential egg after a woman's ovulation.
Zinc is an important substance when it comes to sperm quality. If a man lacks zinc, sperm quality will be reduced, as zinc is involved in the formation of sperm cells. A low level of zinc will decrease a man's testosterone production, causing the testicles to become smaller and sperm quality to decrease. Men's largest storage of zinc is found in the prostate, where semen is produced. Since semen contains a significant amount of zinc, boys and men with an active sex life can lose considerable amounts of zinc as a result.
