Male infertility problems are getting very common these days due to increased stress and bad diets. On top of that, processed foods can also affect a man's sexual and reproductive health.
In the older days, a man can produce 50-60 million sperms in a single ejaculation. Nowadays, a healthy young man can only produce 20-25 million sperms per ejaculation. And the sperm quality and motility has also declined. This has led to to what is called male factor in infertile couples.
As you know, conception happens when a man's sperm successfully fertilize a woman's egg. In order for that to happen, a man needs to ejaculate a large amount of sperm since most of the sperm die on their way to the cervix. Its survival of the fittest. Not only that, the sperm needs to be of high quality otherwise it will be rejected by the egg.
As you can see, the decline in a man's sperm production can affect a couple's plans for a baby.
If you have been trying to father a child without success, you may want to know that a humble, common supplement holds the key to solving the male infertility issue. This supplement can substantially increase your sperm count and sperm quantity and therefore increase the chances of a sperm fertilizing the egg.
In a recently completed double-blind, placebo-controlled study of Zinc by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Eramus University Medical Centre, The Netherlands, it was shown that this humble supplement can significantly increase the production of sperm by the male testicles.
A group of sub-fertile men were given daily supplements of Folic Acid and Zinc Sulphate in an attempt to study their effects on spermatogenesis, the process of formation of spermatozoa (sperm)). The results show that Folic Acid and Zinc Sulphate substantially increase the sperm concentration in sub-fertile males.
Although doctors and scientists do not know exactly how sperm is concentrated and produced, it is now clear that Zinc and Folic Acid can help in spermatogenesis and thus help infertile men conceive children.
Interested in trying this safe and proven method of increasing sperm production? Then try taking Zinc supplements but remember that the study was done over 26 weeks so try to match this as well.
How much to take? A daily doses of 5 milligrams Folic Acid and 66 milligrams of Zinc Sulphate are recommended but you should consult your doctor first if you have any known medical condition.
To be absolutely sure that it works for you, take a sperm test before and after going on a course of these supplements. That way, you can measure the improvement and adjust the dosages according to your body response.
As a side note, there are also other specially blended male enhancement supplements that you can take besides pure Zinc supplements. These have other added benefits like giving you better erection strength and endurance. Visit my website in the resource box below for some ideas.
Of course, you also need to know that conception is a very complicated process that involves both the man and the woman. The right set of conditions need to be present before a sperm can fertilize and egg. So increasing your sperm output is just one of the many conditions, although an important one, no doubt.
