Key Nutrients for Enhancing Male Fertility

For men looking to boost their fertility, paying attention to certain nutrients is critical for better sperm quality and overall reproductive health. Here's a list of important nutrients:

  • Zinc: Vital for making sperm and maintaining testosterone levels. Lack of zinc can lower sperm quality and fertility.
  • Vitamin D: Helps increase testosterone levels and sperm movement. Getting enough Vitamin D is key for male fertility.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Crucial for sperm shape and function. Omega-3s improve reproductive health by aiding hormone production.
  • Folic Acid: Known for its benefits in female fertility, it also enhances sperm health and numbers in men.
  • Selenium: An antioxidant that boosts sperm movement and shields against damage.
  • Vitamin C: Prevents sperm from clumping together and boosts their movement, essential for fertility.
  • Vitamin E: Joins Vitamin C as an antioxidant to protect sperm, boosting their health and activity.
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): Supports energy production in sperm cells, enhancing their motility and overall quality.

Adding these nutrients to your diet, either through food or supplements, and living a healthy lifestyle are important steps for men who want to improve their fertility.

Before taking the Sperm Test

Before taking the test, it is crucial to ensure the maximum volume and quality of sperm. Therefore, abstaining from sexual activity for 3-7 days prior to conducting the test significantly impacts the results.

FAQ

How is the Sperm test carried out?

Our Sperm test is a home test kit with instant results. After ordering, we will send you a kit with everything you need to perform the test yourself. Results are obtained within a few minutes.

How does the Sperm test work?

SP-10 is a protein specific to male reproductive cells and is not found in other cells. This test is highly specific to sperm and is now used to estimate sperm concentration in semen as an aid in determining causes of infertility. The Sperm test detects SP-10 and gives a positive result when the sperm concentration is above 15 million/ml in semen, which is the internationally accepted minimum level of sperm for normal fertility.

When should the test be used?

It can be used as a diagnostic aid for male infertility and to provide guidance for couples wishing to conceive.

What factors can lead to inaccurate test results?

Errors at any point, from sample collection to timing to lack of abstinence from sexual activity, can lead to inaccurate test results.
