 Vitamin Supplements may Boost Male Fertility

A new research conducted researchers in New Zealand revealed that men with low fertility could be able to father a child if they include certain vitamins and minerals in their diet.

The researchers analyzed data from more than 34 studies involving over 2,800 couples who were taking help of fertility clinics and using reproductive techniques such as in-vitro fertilization or sperm injections.

The researchers found that those who took oral antioxidants supplements were more likely to help their partners get pregnant.

"When trying to conceive as part of an assisted reproductive programme, it may be advisable to encourage men to take oral antioxidant supplements to improve their partners' chances of becoming pregnant", lead researcher Marian Showell said, though she went on to add that the findings were based on limited studies and more research was needed.
