- Vitamin A is an antioxidant that can help protect sperm from free-radical damage, decreasing the risk of infertility or miscarriage. This important vitamin has also been shown to improve sperm quality and motility.
- Vitamin B-12 deficiency has been linked to low sperm count, and difficulty with ovulation and implantation.
- Vitamin C improves the likelihood of conception by increasing both progesterone production and iron absorption. Research also indicates that a person’s Vitamin C level can impact sperm health and motility.
- Vitamin B6 improves the likelihood of the ovaries releasing an egg at ovulation.
- Vitamin E helps support a woman’s cervical mucus, a factor that improves the length of time sperm can live, and ultimately allowing more opportunity for fertilization of the egg to occur.
- Zinc regulates normal hormonal function and ovulation in women. Zinc can also impact sperm quality and quantity in men.
