Vitamen Boost

£27.50

A premium quality, antioxidant “booster” formulation, specially designed for use as a combination product alongside Vitamen or any other good quality mutivitamin and mineral supplement. Please note: Vitamen Boost 1 has been designed to work in combination with Vitamen and is not intended to be used as a stand-alone alternative.

What is it?

  • Vitamen Boost contains antioxidants which neutralise damaging substances called ‘free radicals’, which have been linked to poor sperm quality such as low count, low motility and a high number of mis-shapen sperm
  • High levels of free radicals may increase the time it takes to get pregnant, and are believed to be one important factor in male infertility
  • Modern diets and lifestyles, as well as increasing age, lead to increased free radical production, increasing the demand for antioxidants. Although we can get antioxidants from vegetables, salads and fruits, the body’s natural antioxidant systems may benefit from additional support from a supplement

Who is it for?

Men who are trying for a baby, especially if they:

  • Are aged 35 or over
  • Don’t eat as much veg, salad and fruit as they should
  • Smoke
  • Drink alcohol
  • Work-out

  • £10 OFF Vitamen Boost 1 when bought with Vitamen and Vitamen Boost 2
Description

What’s in it?

  • Vitamen Boost contains a wide range of important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, Zinc, Selenium and Manganese, as well as Alpha Lipoic acid, N-acetyl Cysteine and Resveratrol, combined with natural antioxidant extracts (Pomegranate, Bilberry, Watercress, Pine Bark and Mixed Berries).

Contents – 90 capsules (1 month’s supply)

Oxidative Stress and Male Infertility/Sub-fertility: There is growing evidence to support a link between oxidative stress and male infertility and sub-fertility. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals and superoxide anions are generated by human sperm as part of their normal metabolism, and this increases with age. At low levels ROS enhance sperm, however, if the production of ROS is excessive, then oxidative stress can occur (also known as free radical damage), leading to a possible negative pathological effect on the sperm. This can include such things as abnormal morphology (shape), impaired motility and increased DNA fragmentation, all of which can impair fertilisation and adversely affect blastocyst development and pregnancy rates after IVF. Elevated ROS levels are also correlated with an increased time to conceive naturally.

Recent studies have suggested that there is a significant increase in ROS levels and a reduced antioxidant capacity in infertile men compared with fertile controls, irrespective of semen parameters. Roughly 25% – 40% of infertile men are thought to have high levels of ROS. There are many potential causes of elevated ROS levels. Genito-urinary tract infections, Prostatitis, vasectomy reversal, chemical pollutants and occupational hazards can all be contributory causes, as can smoking, alcohol and excessive exercise or exposure to heat.

Vitamen BOOST contains an extremely wide range of important antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and Manganese, as well as Alpha Lipoic Acid, N-Acetyl Cysteine and Resveratrol, combined with natural antioxidant extracts (Pomegranate, Bilberry, Watercress, Pine Bark and Mixed Berries) to help to protect cells, such as spermatozoa, from oxidative stress during the reproductive cycle.

The Vitamen Range consists of:

Vitamen – a premium multivitamin and mineral supplement specifically developed to include the most important nutrients required to support male reproduction

Vitamen Boost – an antioxidant formula for use alongside Vitamen to help protect sperm DNA from oxidative damage

Vitamen Boost 2 – an Amino Acid powder with Zinc and Selenium to provide important nutrients involved with sperm count, motility and morphology

We recommend Vitamen Boost alongside Vitamen to men who would like help in combating the potential adverse effects of oxidative stress, the likelihood of which increases with age and alongside both Vitamen and Vitamen Boost 2 to men who would like extra support for sperm generally

Vitamen Boost – Ingredients and Benefits:

B Vitamins – important for the healthy functioning of the paternal immune system and regulation of hormonal activity. Also involved in the normal metabolism of protein and glycogen, plus some neurotransmitters, as well as the normal formation of red blood cells. Easily depleted through stress, alcohol or smoking.
Vitamin A – important for normal cell differentiation, the normal functioning of the immune system and normal metabolism of Iron.
Vitamin C – an important antioxidant which assists in protecting the father’s DNA from oxidative damage. Also critical for the normal function of the father’s immune system. Helps with absorption of Iron and proper utilisation of Calcium and Phosphorus.
CoEnzymeQ10 – associated with energy levels in cells and promotes blood flow.
Vitamin E – another important antioxidant.
Manganese – helps with the protection of paternal DNA, as well protecting proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. Also important for the maintenance of normal bone

FAQ

We’ve just decided to try to get pregnant naturally. Do I need to take Vitamen BOOST as well as Vitamen?

Most men who are preparing to have a baby will probably not choose to take Vitamen BOOST as well as Vitamen. However, we would usually recommend that couples who are finding it difficult to get pregnant, who have experienced recurrent miscarriage or who are about to have assisted fertility treatment, should consider investing in the extra antioxidant support that Vitamen BOOST provides.

Will Vitamen Boost improve my sperm?

Research has shown that micro-nutrients used in Vitamen help with sperm health. Sperm health includes mobility, motility, formation, and sperm count.

Should my partner be doing anything else to improve the health of his sperm?

There are a lot of lifestyle changes that can be made productively. Click here for more information.

What is “RDA” and why are so many of the ingredients in Vitamen higher than 100%?

“RDA” is an abbreviation of “Recommended Daily Allowance.” The RDA was devised by the Dept of Health in the UK in 1979 to provide guidance on the intake of a limited number of specific vitamins and minerals that an average adult should have daily in order to avoid a deficiency that may lead to disease or general ill-health. Whereas this was, and remains, a useful benchmark for judging the contribution that any supplement may make to reaching those minimum requirements, it wasn’t intended to represent an indication of optimum intake. You will probably have noticed that many supplements, particularly premium priced ones such as our own, contain daily levels that are frequently many times higher than the RDA, sometimes substantially so. This is because the vitamins and minerals concerned have been set at therapeutic levels in an attempt to boost the body’s store of the nutrients concerned, often for a particular and limited period of time, the need for which can of course vary depending on factors such as general health, age etc. It is universally recognised that pregnancy, and preparing for pregnancy, for example, benefit from special attention to nutrition on the part of both partners. All of the formulations within the Zita West range are well within the Government’s guidelines for what represents the upper safe limit (USL) for long term daily supplementation of any given nutrient.

Can I take Vitamen Boost instead of Vitamen?

NO. We usually recommend that all our clients who are trying to get pregnant consider taking, as a first nutritional step, a good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, like Vitamen, to help support their everyday diet. Vitamen has been specifically developed to help protect a man’s daily intake of those micro-nutrients that we believe are the most important for all- round pre-conceptual health. Vitamen Boost has been developed as a companion product to Vitamen for those of our clients who might also benefit from boosting their intake of antioxidants to help further protect their paternal DNA from oxidative stress. Research suggests that oxidative stress may be associated with an increased incidence of sub-fertility, recurrent miscarriage and IVF failure. Which is why we recommend the product specifically for men who are finding it difficult to conceive rather than those who are just about to try. Because it has been designed as a companion product to Vitamen, it does not duplicate many of the important vitamins and minerals that can be found in Vitamen and it isn’t suitable, therefore, as a substitute for it.
