As soon as you and your partner know that you want to become parents, we recommend that you start taking Q10. It can be beneficial to start from 3 months prior to the desired conception, as sperm production takes around 3 months.
At doses of 100 to 200 milligrams, nausea, headache, and abdominal pain have been observed in rare cases
1: Quit smoking if you are a smoker. Smoking increases DNA damage in sperm cells, and heavy smokers have a 50% lower chance of getting their partner pregnant.
2: Engage in physical exercise. Exercise activates the body's antioxidants and helps prevent DNA damage in sperm cells.
3: Lose weight if you are overweight. Obesity can affect sperm production and reduce sperm quality in men. Additionally, being overweight increases the risk of excessive heat on the testicles due to being trapped between the thighs. Heat also increases the risk of DNA damage.
4: Reduce alcohol consumption. Alcohol increases the risk of DNA damage and affects the quantity of sperm cells. If a man stops drinking alcohol or significantly reduces his consumption, the effects can be measured after three months. A Danish study with over 1000 young men showed that sperm quality deteriorated with a weekly consumption of 5 units. If a man consumed more than 25 units per week, sperm quality was greatly reduced. Furthermore, alcohol can also cause impotence and decreased libido.
5: Use dietary supplements.
