    Supplements for increased sperm and fertility?


    Hey guys what would all of you recommend as supplements for increased amount of active live sperm and fertility in general?

    Now I am not talking about another "what can increase a load like a porn star thread?"........ I am talking about a true increase in fertility......a/k/a ability to impregnate.....

    Just wondering since my wife and I are just starting to try for kids....I thought getting off to the right start would be a good idea.

    Thanks

    Mr.50

    Clomid. Have your doctor write you a script for it.

    Astaxanthin may:

    Combined conventional/antioxidant "Astaxanthin" treatment for male infertility: a double blind, randomized trial.
    Asian J Androl. 2005 Sep. Comhaire FH, El Garem Y, Mahmoud A, Eertmans F, Schoonjans F. Ghent University Hospital, Department of Medical and Urological Andrology, 9k12 IE, De Pintelaan, 185, B 9000, Gent, Belgium.
    To evaluate the treatment of male infertility with a strong natural antioxidant, in addition to conventional treatment. Using a double blind, randomized trial design, 30 men with infertility of > or =2 months and female partners with no demonstrable cause of infertility received conventional treatment according to the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO), and either a strong antioxidant Astaxanthin 16 mg/day (AstaCarox, AstaReal AB, Gustavsberg, Sweden) or placebo for 3 months. The effects of treatment on semen parameters, reactive oxygen species, zona-free hamster oocyte test, serum hormones including testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and Inhibin B, and spontaneous or intrauterine insemination (IUI)-induced pregnancies were evaluated. RESULTS: ROS and Inhibin B decreased significantly and sperm linear velocity increased in the Astaxanthin group (n = 11), but not in the placebo group (n = 19). The results of the zona-free hamster oocyte test tended to improve in the Astaxanthin group in contrast with the placebo group, though not reaching statistical significance. Although the present study suggests a positive effect of Astaxanthin on sperm parameters and fertility, the results need to be confirmed in a larger trial before recommending this supplement for the complementary treatment of infertile men.
    I'm taking Myodrol, logging it now. Another significant side effect is libido, which of course is a great fertility aid.

    Bro I've been researching this for a while I have a thread in the general chat section abt being this.

    This is what I've found out from my research.
    For supplements. Use zinc and folic acid. Studies show it raises sperm count by 76% or something like that. Multivitamin, protein. If ur on any kind of thermogenics get off of them. Take cold showers heat slows sperm production. Have sex in the morning that is hen sperm count is the highest. Eat enough saturated fats, fish oils, a zma supplement might help.

    Don't start busting loads everyday. Have sex every other day or every two days. To build up sperm count. Check when she's ovulating, if she has a normal 28 day cycle she should be ovulating around day 14 so that's 14 days from the first day of her period. 4 days b4 ovulation try to pump as much as u can in her(sperm lives up to 5 days) when her body releases the egg u only have a 30% chance of fetalizing it, and the egg is only alive for 48 hrs so remember
    Zma,zinc,folic acid, multi, protein, and fats.

    Me and my girl are trying to have one she should start on the 14 of this month wish me luck.

    And I hope everything works out bro

    Ashwagandha

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19501822

    Withania somnifera improves semen quality by regulating reproductive hormone levels and oxidative stress in seminal plasma of infertile males.

    Ahmad MK, Mahdi AA, Shukla KK, Islam N, Rajender S, Madhukar D, Shankhwar SN, Ahmad S.

    Departmentsof Biochemistry, Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, Lucknow, India.
    Abstract

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of Withania somnifera roots on semen profile, oxidative biomarkers, and reproductive hormone levels of infertile men. DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING: Departments of Biochemistry and Urology, Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, Lucknow, India. PATIENT(S): Seventy-five normal healthy fertile men (control subjects) and 75 men undergoing infertility screening. INTERVENTION(S): High-performance liquid chromatography assay procedure for quantization of vitamin A and E in seminal plasma. Biochemical parameters in seminal plasma were estimated by standard spectrophotometric procedures. Estimation of T, LH, FSH, and PRL in blood serum by RIA methods. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES(S): Before and after the treatment, seminal plasma biochemical parameters, antioxidant vitamins, and serum T, LH, FSH, and PRL levels were measured. RESULT(S): Withania somnifera inhibited lipid peroxidation and protein carbonyl content and improved sperm count and motility. Treatment of infertile men recovered the seminal plasma levels of antioxidant enzymes and vitamins A, C, and E and corrected fructose. Moreover, treatment also significantly increased serum T and LH and reduced the levels of FSH and PRL. CONCLUSION(S): The treatment with W. somnifera effectively reduced oxidative stress, as assessed by decreased levels of various oxidants and improved level of diverse antioxidants. Moreover, the levels of T, LH, FSH and PRL, good indicators of semen quality, were also reversed in infertile subjects after treatment with the herbal preparation.




    Mucuna pruriens


    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18973898

    Mucuna pruriens improves male fertility by its action on the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis.

    Shukla KK, Mahdi AA, Ahmad MK, Shankhwar SN, Rajender S, Jaiswar SP.

    Department of Biochemistry, C.S.M. Medical University, Lucknow, India.
    Abstract

    OBJECTIVE: To understand the mechanism of action of Mucuna pruriens in the treatment of male infertility. DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING: Departments of Biochemistry, Urology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology, C.S.M. Medical University, Lucknow, India. PATIENT(S): Seventy-five normal healthy fertile men (controls) and 75 men undergoing infertility screening. INTERVENTION(S): High-performance liquid chromatography assay for quantitation of dopa, adrenaline, and noradrenaline in seminal plasma and blood. Estimation by RIA of hormonal parameters in blood plasma, namely T, LH, FSH, and PRL. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Before and after treatment, serum T, LH, FSH, PRL, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline in seminal and blood plasma were measured. RESULT(S): Decreased sperm count and motility were seen in infertile subjects. Serum T and LH levels, as well as seminal plasma and blood levels of dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline were also decreased in all groups of infertile men. This was accompanied by significantly increased serum FSH and PRL levels in oligozoospermic subjects. Treatment with M. pruriens significantly improved T, LH, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline levels in infertile men and reduced levels of FSH and PRL. Sperm count and motility were significantly recovered in infertile men after treatment. CONCLUSION(S): Treatment with M. pruriens regulates steroidogenesis and improves semen quality in infertile men.

    Outside of having optimal micronutrient intake, there's really not much out there that has any science behind it. It seems that the biggest problem is total-body inflammation and that's usually from central obesity, improper Omega-3:Omega-6 intake, and poor diet.
