With one in ten couples having trouble getting pregnant, infertility is a problem that many couples face. Some of these situations are due to male infertility. Infertility in men can result from a variety of circumstances, including a low sperm count. Thankfully, a variety of vitamins and minerals can strengthen sperm and increase sperm count.
The following vitamins, according to Medicalnewstoday, can help men have more sperm.
One of the most effective antioxidants, vitamin C helps shield the sperm from oxidative stress, which can harm the DNA of the sperm. Additionally, it enhances sperm morphology and motility. To promote the health of their sperm, men should get at least 90 milligrams of vitamin C each day.
Another necessary nutrient for male fertility is vitamin D. Low sperm counts and poor sperm quality have been linked to low vitamin D levels. When exposed to sunlight, the skin begins to produce vitamin D, but many people do not get enough sun. Men are advised to take a daily vitamin D supplement that contains at least 1,000–2,000 IU.
The mineral zinc is essential for the development of strong sperm. In order to produce healthy sperm, it aids in maintaining normal testosterone levels. To support ideal sperm health, men should try to take 11 mg of zinc per day.
Folate, sometimes referred to as vitamin B9, is necessary for the normal growth of sperm. Chromosome abnormalities that can cause infertility are less likely to occur as a result. To promote the health of their sperm, men should ingest at least 400 mcg of folate each day.
Last but not least, vitamin E is yet another potent antioxidant that supports the defense of sperm against oxidative stress. Additionally, it enhances sperm morphology and motility. To promote the health of their sperm, men should consume at least 15 milligrams of vitamin E everyday.
The vitamins and minerals mentioned above can aid in sperm health improvement and sperm count growth. To make sure that the dosage and the supplements are safe and adequate, it is necessary to see a healthcare provider before beginning any supplementation.
