Beneficial Vitamins and Nutrients for Fertility Include

L-Arginine & L- Carnitine– These are two amino acids that are specifically required for the normal production of healthy sperm. These acids promote normal functioning, increased quantity and motility of sperm.

Selenium – This can be found in Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, tuna, cabbage and whole grains. Selenium has anti-oxidant qualities that help to prevent chromosomal damage, help maximise sperm formation and testosterone production.

Zinc –This can be found in meat, fish, oysters, nuts, eggs and leafy greens and is a vital component of genetic material. A lack of Zinc in the body is directly related to reduced fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage.

Fatty Acids – such as omega 3(fish oils) and omega 6 (seeds & oils) play a very important role in healthy sperm production and, amongst other important things, hormone functioning, reproductive and immune health.

B complex–B vitamins aid in the creation and development of new blood cells, brain development, cell division and the nervous system for a growing baby. The B vitamins can be found in many nuts, seeds and whole grains as well as yeast extract.
