In at least 30 percent of all cases, male factor infertility is the reason a couple cannot conceive a child. Men must increase their awareness of male factor infertility. A correct diagnostic evaluation of a man’s reproductive health is a key component of every couple’s basic fertility treatment plan. In addition to a healthy fertility diet, a man can increase his fertility by adding key supplements.
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin C

Increasing Male Fertility With Dietary Supplements
During infertility treatment, a man can add important vitamins and minerals to his healthy diet and exercise regime.
This key mineral is found in the male reproductive system and is necessary for quality sperm production. Deficiencies in zinc can cause lower sperm counts. Include at least 15 mg of zinc in your diet to enhance your male fertility – 30 mg if you are a vegetarian.
Folic acid is a B vitamin supplement helping the body generate healthy new cells. Folic acid is important for both men and women when they are trying to conceive. Folic acid reduces the likelihood of abnormal sperm in men. Also, folic acid increases the likelihood that a man’s sperm will be healthy enough to reach and penetrate a woman’s egg for fertilization. 400 mg of folic acid per day is optimal for men wanting to enhance their fertility.
Vitamin C has properties boosting one’s immune system – male and female. Vitamin C helps to enhance a man’s sperm the ability to move in the right direction and at the right speed – motility. Vitamin C also helps to increase sperm count. Between 500 and 1,000 mg of Vitamin C per day is ideal to enhance a man’s fertility.
