Fertility for Men 60 Veg Caps – Future Product
Information: Most causes of male infertility reflect an abnormal sperm count or quality. Although it only takes one sperm to fertilise an egg, in an average ejaculate a man will eject nearly 200 million sperm. In about 90% of the cases of low sperm count, the reason is deficient sperm production. Unfortunately, in about 90% of cases, the cause for the decreased sperm formation cannot be identified and the condition is labelled ‘idiopathic oligospermia or azoospermia’. Oligospermia means a low sperm count while azoospermia is defined as a complete absence of living sperm in the semen. Possible causes of male infertility include environmental toxin exposure (e.g. smoking, xenoestrogens), nutritional deficiency, ductal obstruction, ejaculatory dysfunctions, and infections (Chlamydia being the most common serious infection) or disorders of accessory glands. This high potency formulation is specifically designed to maximise the vital nutrients required to support male reproductive function and help optimise fertility. Ideally take at least 90 days ahead of planned conception:
• Vitamin E – Vitamin E is a well-documented antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit free radical-induced damage to sensitive cell membranes. Oral supplementation with vitamin E has been shown to significantly improve sperm motility and pregnancy rates. In one randomized, cross-over, controlled trial, 600 mg/day vitamin E improved sperm function, therefore enhancing the ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg. Nine men with low sperm count and alterations in sperm motility were given vitamin E with the antioxidant trace mineral selenium for six months. Compared to the baseline pre-supplementation period of four months, the combination of vitamin E and selenium significantly increased sperm motility and the overall percentage of normal spermatozoa.
• L-Carnitine – The main function of carnitine in the epididymis is to provide an energetic substrate for spermatozoa. Carnitine contributes directly to sperm motility and may be involved in the successful maturation of sperm. This is especially important since epididymal sperm use fatty acid oxidation as their main source of energy metabolism, and thus tend to concentrate carnitine while in the epididymis, as carnitine is necessary for transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria.
• Zinc – zinc is perhaps the most critical trace mineral for male sexual function. It is involved in virtually every aspect of male reproduction including the hormone metabolism, sperm formation, and sperm motility. Among many other problems, zinc deficiency is characterised by decreased testosterone levels and sperm counts. Zinc levels are typically much lower in infertile men with low sperm counts, indicating that a low zinc status may be the contributing factor to the infertility.
• L-Arginine – the amino acid arginine is required for the replication of cells, making it essential in sperm formation. It also acts as a biochemical precursor in the synthesis of putrescine, spermidine, and spermine, which are thought to be essential to sperm motility. Arginine supplementation is often, but not always, an effective treatment of male infertility.
• Vitamin C and bioflavonoids – Studies have shown the concentration of ascorbic acid in seminal plasma directly reflects dietary intake, and lower levels of vitamin C may lead to infertility and increased damage to the sperm’s genetic material. Researchers have demonstrated this by reducing ascorbic acid intake in healthy men from 250 mg to 5 mg per day. Seminal plasma levels of vitamin C decreased by 50 percent, with a concomitant 91-percent increase in sperm with DNA damage.
• Natural mixed caroteinoids – antioxidants such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium and vitamin E have been shown to be very important in protecting the sperm against damage.
• Pine bark extract – pine bark is a rich source of proanthocyanidins (OPCs), known to be potent antioxidants with many benefits associated with circulatory health – such as helping venous insufficiency and vascular constriction. OPCs are 50 times more potent as antioxidants than vitamin E or C and are protective against both fat and water soluble free radicals. Improvements in blood flow and peripheral circulation can assist male reproductive function.
• Co-enzyme Q10 – In sperm cells, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is concentrated in the mitochondrial mid-piece, where it is involved in energy production. It also functions as an antioxidant, preventing lipid peroxidation of sperm membranes. CoQ10 supplements given to 17 infertile patients for a mean of 103 days resulted in a significant improvement in fertilisation rate.
• Selenium and L-Glutathione – Glutathione is vital to sperm antioxidant defenses and has demonstrated a positive effect on sperm motility. Selenium and glutathione are essential to the formation of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme present in spermatids which becomes a structural protein comprising over 50 percent of the mitochondrial capsule in the mid-piece of mature spermatozoa. Deficiencies of either substance can lead to instability of the mid-piece, resulting in defective motility.
• Copper – copper and zinc are mutually beneficial and are both involved the production of the potent endogenous antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD), crucial for antioxidant protection. Researchers have found that seminal plasma levels of zinc, copper and SOD were much lower in medium, heavy and long-term smokers than in non-smoking individuals.
• Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B12 is involved in cellular replication. A deficiency of B12 leads to reduced sperm counts and sperm motility. Even in the absence of a vitamin B12 deficiency, supplementation appears to be worthwhile in men with sperm counts less than 20million per ml or a motility of rate of less than 50%.
• Spirulina, bilberry and alfalfa - the superfood combination of spirulina, alfalfa, and bilberry fruit provide an abundance of wholefood micronutrients and phytochemical antioxidants to provide extra synergy and nutritional intake. Viridian choose to use the green food blend as a natural ‘filler’, rather than synthetic excipients to ensure the product is 100% active.
Dosage: 2 capsules daily or as recommended by a practitioner.
Potential applications: To provide nutritional support for pre-conceptual health and well-being. This formula may also be beneficial to men with reduced reproductive function e.g. oligospermia.
Known contraindications: None known.
Interactions: Zinc supplements, particularly on an empty stomach can cause a feeling of slight nausea.
Useful links – it is recommended to eliminate saturated and hydrogenated fatty acids and increase the intake of high quality polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly omega 3 fatty acids, as these oils function in all aspects of sexual function including sperm formation and activity.
Rhodiola rosea with its long tradition as a love tonic and aphrodisiac would seem a beneficial supportive agent within a nutritional/botanical protocol.
Note: Scrotal temperature is highly regulated by the body, and sperm production is greatly reduced at temperatures above 96º F. Men attempting to improve their fertility should not wear tight fitting pants or underwear (boxer shorts instead of briefs), an should avoid strenuous exercise, hot tubs, and baths.
