Oxidative Stress and Male Infertility/Sub-fertility: There is growing evidence to support a link between oxidative stress and male infertility and sub-fertility. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals and superoxide anions are generated by human sperm as part of their normal metabolism, and this increases with age. At low levels ROS enhance sperm, however, if the production of ROS is excessive, then oxidative stress can occur (also known as free radical damage), leading to a possible negative pathological effect on the sperm. This can include such things as abnormal morphology (shape), impaired motility and increased DNA fragmentation, all of which can impair fertilisation and adversely affect blastocyst development and pregnancy rates after IVF. Elevated ROS levels are also correlated with an increased time to conceive naturally.
Recent studies have suggested that there is a significant increase in ROS levels and a reduced antioxidant capacity in infertile men compared with fertile controls, irrespective of semen parameters. Roughly 25% – 40% of infertile men are thought to have high levels of ROS. There are many potential causes of elevated ROS levels. Genito-urinary tract infections, Prostatitis, vasectomy reversal, chemical pollutants and occupational hazards can all be contributory causes, as can smoking, alcohol and excessive exercise or exposure to heat.
Vitamen BOOST contains an extremely wide range of important antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and Manganese, as well as Alpha Lipoic Acid, N-Acetyl Cysteine and Resveratrol, combined with natural antioxidant extracts (Pomegranate, Bilberry, Watercress, Pine Bark and Mixed Berries) to help to protect cells, such as spermatozoa, from oxidative stress during the reproductive cycle.
The Vitamen Range consists of:
Vitamen – a premium multivitamin and mineral supplement specifically developed to include the most important nutrients required to support male reproduction
Vitamen Boost – an antioxidant formula for use alongside Vitamen to help protect sperm DNA from oxidative damage
Vitamen Boost 2 – an Amino Acid powder with Zinc and Selenium to provide important nutrients involved with sperm count, motility and morphology
We recommend Vitamen Boost alongside Vitamen to men who would like help in combating the potential adverse effects of oxidative stress, the likelihood of which increases with age and alongside both Vitamen and Vitamen Boost 2 to men who would like extra support for sperm generally.
