Why has infertility increase in Iranian couples?
Over the past five years, one couple has been infertile in five couples. Air pollution, stress and an unhealthy diet are factors that reduce the fertility of women and men.
While the jury is still out on the impact of vitamins, here is a review of what we believe to potentially be the most promising vitamins for fertility.
Use CoQ10 to improve fertility
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like supplement that is suggested to enhance both male and female fertility. Found in every cell of the body, CoQ10 is a part of the electron transport chain which is responsible for generating energy in our cells. Functioning as an antioxidant, it decreases the damaging effects of free radicals on the reproductive system.
It is believed that as we age, our naturally occurring levels of CoQ10 diminish. As a result, the processes that require high energy, such as those associated with fertilization and embryo development, are unable to work as hard – resulting in a lower efficiency within those systems. With less energy available for the “machinery” of the dividing cells, more errors can be made in the division of genetic information, leading to a higher rate of genetically abnormal embryos.
There has been considerable research into the effects of CoQ10 on overall sperm health and egg quality. One study suggested that men using a CoQ10 supplement experienced a significant increase in sperm motility. In another study, men supplementing with CoQ10 daily showed increases in both sperm count and morphology. CoQ10 may improve the semen analysis.
A recent promising study in mice found an improvement in the egg quality later in their reproductive years suggesting that supplementation of CoQ10 may be able to help overcome the natural decline of a woman’s fertility as she ages.
Why L-Carnitine is Beneficial for Male Fertility
Supplementing with L-Carnitine has been shown to help boost energy and improve sexual stamina which may be helpful for men with low libido. L-Carnitine is necessary to shuttle fatty acids across the cells’ mitochondrial membrane. The mitochondria is responsible for creating, sustaining and managing cellular energy. The mitochondria use fatty acids to burn as fuel for creating cellular energy, also known as Adenosine triphosphate or ATP. Being that the body is made up of cells, L-Carnitine is very important to energy, stamina and cellular function.
Also considered a potent antioxidant, L-Carnitine has been reported to increase sperm health by providing the protection the body needs to counteract free radical damage. Sperm cells are highly susceptible to damage from free radicals. Antioxidants protect cellular health, including the health of a man’s sperm and the DNA contained within each sperm.
