The “required,” male fertility supplement base and more. Provider Referral Code (PRC): 113205
Our male fertility enhancment “protocol,” is designed to improve improving sperm count, motility, overall function, and live birth results for those trying to conceive, both with and without fertility treatments. Our sperm enhancement regimen factors in dietary guidance, supplementary support, and pharmacological advances.
While we recommend men take supplementary fish oil because most are not getting enough fat in their diet . . . you really don’t need it if you’re eating a “ketogenic,” diet.
It is our belief developed through decades of clinical experience that the food we eat impacts our fertility perhaps more than anything. We recommend that all men (and women) eat a high fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrate diet (aka the ketogenic diet). That means lots of fatty meat like ribeyes, pork belly, chicken wings, lamb shoulder, etc along with butter, heavy cream, coconut oil, and other high-quality fats.
The Ketogenic diet improves male fertility in via two primary mechanisms:
Improves hormone functioning: Many critical fertility hormones are made from cholesterol, but because cholesterol is also imperative for brain function and repair (aka survival) it’s almost impossible to maintain a healthy hormone balance if you’re not eating enough.
While food is the foundation of improving male reproductive health, there are many key nutrients that can be missed even in the best of diets. It’s important to use high-quality third-party lab tested and verified supplements to help reduce inflammation and provide key missing nutrients like co-q10/ubiquinol, l-carnitine, folate, selenium, lycopene and more. Below, you’ll find all our recommended male supplements.
There are many instances where prescription medications can help male infertility. Below are some common male infertility medications that can be discussed with your doctor should you have or suspect male fertility issues.
LDN acts as an immunomodulator and increases the body’s ability to heal itself. Through unknown mechanisms can improve sperm and male infertility.
Clomid for men is used when a low sperm count is caused by low testosterone levels. Clomid increases the production of FSH (increasing sperm production) and LH (testosterone production) leading to better sperm production and function.
Human growth hormone plays an important physiological role exerting autocrine and paracrine control over spermatogenesis In other words, it can help improve sperm production and function.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used in men to increase the production of testosterone and increase sperm production. Men with low sperm counts and low motility may benefit from daily HCG injections.
Ditch high intensity exercises in favor of brisk walking and yoga. High intensity exercise increases inflammation and micro testicular trauma.
Saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs, and other excessive heat to the testicles and kill and damage sperm and it’s production. Similarly, toxic exposure, drinking, and smoking can drastically harm sperm.
Stress can have a significant impact on all areas of our health and wellness. Fertility is no different. Developing relaxation techniques and medication could help.
