Free radicals are constantly produced in your body, they are a by-product of many bodily functions needed to create energy for exercise and other normal cellular activity.
The body also creates free radicals as a result of being exposed to toxins such as tobacco smoke, air pollution, sunlight, alcohol and other toxins that we are exposed to in the environment.
While we cannot escape free radicals, a high level creates oxidative stress which can lead to ageing, infertility and chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
To prevent this, we need antioxidants to fight the negative actions of free radicals to create a balance and prevent oxidative stress which can leave a long standing negative effect on your health whilst damaging sperm DNA.
The team at Fertiligy identified the most potent antioxidants tht have clinical evidence to support natural fertility amongst men.
Many vitamins are antioxidants such as those included in Fertiligy, but there's also the following:
Folic Acid - the antioxidant activity has benefical effects against cardiovascular diseases. Research demonstrates that it can improve sperm health and numbers.
Selenium - a very powerful antioxidant able to fight oxidative stress and protect against cell damage and even cognitive decline.
Further evidence shows that it is also able to increase sperm motility.
N-Acetyl-Cysteine - a well regarded antioxidant able to directly and indirectly help minimize cell damage by reducing oxidative stress.
Another by-product of its actions is to improve testosterone, sperm count and volume of semen.
Coenzyme Q10 - a significant antioxidant able to prevent the generation of free radicals and protect cell membranes whilst posessing anti-inflammatory benefits.
Evidence has demonstrated that supplementation of CoQ10 has significantly improved sperm concentrations for infertile men.
Lycopene - known to help protect the body against free radicals which can lead to reproductive dissorders, skin and bone diseases and other inflammatory complications.
During a period of 3-12 months lycopene improved sperm health which improved pregnancy rates.
