Anti-oxidants with micronutrients bring improvement in male-fertility: Study

This study is a big boost for use of nutraceuticals in treating male infertility

A study by Meyer Vitabiotics, an Indian arm of UK’s vitamin company Vitabiotics, has revealed that a combination of anti-oxidant micronutrients and vitamins improved male fertility parameter by 76 percent even in severe cases of male infertility.

Among Indian males with baseline sperm count of less than 5 million / ml, a blend of multi-vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, ginseng & lycopene increased the sperm count by 75.76 percent. The study was conducted over a 3-month period among 300 Indian males with varied types and degrees of infertility. The encouraging results are a boost to multiple micronutrients therapy that India usually neglects. The study was published in the International Journal “Translational and Clinical Pharmacology”.

The experiential use of antioxidants in male infertility is aimed at improving semen parameters and DNA Fragmentation Index (DFI), enhancing the probability of conception. The frequently prescribed compounds include vitamins E & C, carnitine, N-acetyl cysteine, selenium, and zinc. Interventional antioxidant blend through a single tablet of Oligocare forte plus, also called Wellman Conception in the UK, is a combination of micronutrients, essential amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins that are essential for the male reproductive system.

The study involved 300 participants who met the eligibility criteria and the results obtained have been highly promising. It was one of its kind multi-centric trial in sub-fertile male population conducted with meticulous adherence to good clinical practices (GCP) and all relevant regulations and guidelines.
