We get asked often about how to address DNA fragmentation in relation to male fertility. Until recently, it was assumed that most fertility issues were with the woman. Now we understand that many cases of recurrent miscarriage are in fact male factor, and often due to high levels of DNA fragmentation.
A study published in the Journal of Andrology reveals that treatment with antioxidants can be an effective therapy.
How can you use this research to help your fertility?
- Consume foods naturally high in anti-oxidants like deeply coloured fruits and vegetables.
- Take 1000mg of Vitamin C daily.
- Take 1000mg of Vitamin E daily.
It is important to note that the only parameter of the sperm that changed was the reduction DNA fragmentation found. Equally important is that these men took the supplements for a full 2 months.
If you have other issues with your sperm (quality, quantity, speed) then this will only be part of the overall plan to improve your sperm health.
