Every man needs micronutrients. These include vitamins, amino acids, trace elements, minerals, fatty acids and plant secondary metabolites in different compositions. PROfertil® gives you what you need.
The body needs these special supplements during the different stages of spermatogenesis (sperm maturation). It has been shown that certain micronutrients have a positive effect on the quality of sperm. The effectiveness of various antioxidants on male fertility was also confirmed in the Cochrane analysis.1)
The results of numerous studies suggest that taking L-carnitine, L-arginine, zinc and selenium can improve sperm count and motility. L-carnitine and L-arginine have a positive effect on sperm motility, while zinc improves sperm count and motility by stimulating testosterone production.
The combination with selenium leads to a significant increase in sperm motility, and increases the percentage of normal-shaped sperm. Selenium and glutathione are needed for the production of an enzyme that represents 50% of the mitochondrial capsule material in the mid-piece of the spermatozoon and is responsible for sperm motility.2)
Antioxidants vitamin E, glutathione and coenzyme Q10 also have a positive influence on the treatment of male infertility. Free radicals are rendered harmless, which in turn helps protect the cells and organ systems of the body. As spermatozoa are sensitive to oxidative stress, antioxidants such as vitamin E, glutathione and selenium can be used to protect them while they are maturing into sperm cells.1) Showell G.M., Brown J., Yazdani A., Stankiewicz M.T., Hart R.J.
