CONDITIONS

Low Sperm Count

A low sperm count simply means that the semen you ejaculate has fewer sperm than normal, which is considered to be fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Since there are fewer sperm, this will decrease the odds that one will fertilize your partner’s egg. It is, however, possible.

 

 

NUTRITION

Vitamin B2

Although it’s important to be mindful of all the B vitamins listed above, today our focus is on riboflavin — more commonly known as vitamin B2. This essential vitamin impacts your body’s ability to act as it should, and when levels are low, your reproductive health may be affected.

 

 

NUTRITION

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 has been linked to fertility based on its contribution to the luteal phase of the ovulation cycle, as well as its ability to lower levels of the amino acid homocysteine.

 

 

NUTRITION

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that supports brain and nervous system function, the metabolism of your body’s cells, the production of genetic components in the egg and sperm, sperm count, and so much more.

 

 

NUTRITION

Zinc

Zinc regulates the hormone functions that ensure ovulation is regular and so helps conception. Zinc is also important for men as it helps with healthy sperm formation.

 

 

NUTRITION

Antioxidants

Found naturally in the human body, as well as in a wide array of foods, antioxidants work by reducing cellular damage, which leads to a decline in immune function and the development of disease.

 

 

NUTRITION

Niacin

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is both made and used by your body to convert food into energy. When it comes to niacin and prenatal health, this vitamin is required to produce Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD).

 

 

NUTRITION

Betaine

Being a source of methyl groups, betaine helps prevent the build-up of homocysteine, an amino acid linked to heart and circulation problems, skeletal complications, and potential fertility issues.

 

 

NUTRITION

Glutathione

Based on its ability to protect cells, it plays a unique role in reproductive health, supporting both male and female fertility. If your body’s glutathione levels are depleted, it’s important to address your diet and lifestyle today.
