Statistics About Male infertility and Reproductive Health
- Statistics show that about 10% of the population will experience difficulties when trying to conceiving. About 30% of fertility problems are male related. In most male infertility cases, there are problems with parameters like sperm count, motility and structure.
- A recent study found that sperm concentration in French men has decreased by nearly a third between 1989 and 2005. Another prominent study from the 1990s suggests sperm count has decreased by 50 percent over the last 50 years.
- In 2010, the World Health Organisation reduced normal sperm concentration values from 20 million sperm/ml to anything over 15 million sperm per millilitre. This change ensured more men fell into ‘normal values.’
Pregnancy Success Rates by Semen Concentration
Natural Fertility Supplement
FertilHerb® for Men is an all natural supplement specially developed to maximize male fertility.
FertilHerb components have been studied extensively in clinical trials and showed a significant improvement in parameters of sperm motility, concentration and shape for men with low sperm count.
FertilHerb contains a blend of potent ingredients. Each ingredient has been scientificly proven to support a healthy male reproductive system:
L-Carnitine – Carries an important role in the metabolism and the development of sperm. Many studies have shown the estounding effect these components have on sperm motility, morphology, count and concentration.
Vitamin C – Works as an anti-oxidant to protect the seed during the formation process. Vitamin C deficiency can cause infertility and cumulative damage to the genetic material (DNA) in sperm cells.
Vitamin E – Acts as an anti-oxidant (Lipophilic antioxidant) that is essential to the cell structure as well as to slow the aging processes.
Coenzyme Q10 – Acts as an anti-oxidant and is involved in creating the necessary energy for the development of seeds. It has been observed that a daily administration of 10 mg of Coenzyme Q10 can increase sperm count and motility.
Niacin – Niacin, also known as nicotinic acid, is an organic compound with the formula C 6H 5NO 2 and, depending on the definition used, one of the 20 to 80 essential human nutrients.
Zinc – A mineral composite involved in metabolism and cell division, lack of it is accompanied by a decrease in sperm count and impotence.
Folic acid – Essential for the production of genetic material in sperm cells, along with vitamins B6 and B12.
Selenium – A mineral essential which plays an important role in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection. Lack of selenium can cause damage to seed mobility.
Vitamin B12 – Vitamin essential to the cell division process, in particular the creation of genetic material (RNA and DNA). Vitamin B12 deficiency is accompanied with low sperm count and motility.
Macuna Pruriens – Studies show that Macuna Pruriens extract has a positive effect on fertility, sperm count, and sperm mobility. This herb also significally supports stress reduction which is highly important, as stress may negatively influence fertility.
Maca – Maca is a popular herb with fertility-enhancing properties. Studies have shown repeat success in improving sperm health, increase in sperm count and stronger motility. Maca also increases libido and sex drive.
Ashwaghanda – Root extract of Ashwagandha improves sperm parameters like sperm concentration and motility in men.
Tribulus Terrestrius – Tribulus terrestris is a plant used for male virility and general vitality by supporting normal testosterone levels.
Panax Ginseng – Panax ginseng root improves sperm motility and sexual health in men with asthenopermia.
Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero) – Siberian Ginseng root enhances sexual performance, improves male fertility through modulating the neuronal and hormonal systems and promotes spermatogenesis.
Red Clover – Red Clover may support detoxification of the liver and kidneys, an essential for hormonal balance. Red Clover can also increase blood circulation, and therefor beneficial to the reproductive system.
It takes about three months for your sperm to fully develop, 74 days till formation and 20-30 days to mature. Which is why you should take FertilHerb® for Men throughout a minimum period of 3 months and until fertilization to get best results.
