What’s in it?
Combines vitamins and minerals that are most important for healthy sperm, including antioxidants that help protect DNA inside the sperm from damage:
- Folate – vitally important for the normal functioning of the immune system and for normal cell division
- Selenium – important for normal sperm production. Also helps protect DNA, and sperm membranes from oxidative damage, as well as supporting male thyroid function, which is very important for fertility
- Vitamin B12 – helps to maintain the normal production and metabolism of men’s reproductive hormones
- Vitamins C and E – helps to protect sperm DNA from damage. Particularly important if the diet is low in fresh fruit and vegetables
- Zinc – very important for male fertility. Needed to make the outer layer and tail of the sperm. Zinc is lost in the semen, so needs to be replenished regularly
Contents – 30 Capsules (1 month supply). Suitable for vegans
Vitamen is a new and clever combination of the vitamins and minerals that are most important for healthy sperm. All packed within an easy to remember and easy to use, one-a-day capsule. Its unique formulation is the result of our many years of experience in helping thousands of men get into the best possible nutritional shape prior to conception.
Vitamen contains Selenium and Zinc which research shows are vital for healthy spermatogenesis and sperm motility. Zinc, in particular, is found in high concentrations in sperm and is a key building-block for both its tail and outer-layer. The new formulation contains lots of other micro-nutrients that are important for sperm health too, such as Vitamin D (which is essential for healthy cell division), Folate, and Vitamin B6 (which help to support the male partner’s immune system).
The formulation also contains naturally powerful antioxidants, such as Vitamins E and C, both of which help to protect paternal DNA from oxidative damage.
Much emphasis is given to the importance of a woman’s health and nutritional status before and during pregnancy. But the male partner plays an equally crucial role at conception. The creation of a healthy baby requires not just a healthy egg but a good supply of properly formed mobile sperm as well. Over the past few years we have seen an increase in the number of men with low sperm counts. Recent research suggests that of the one in four couples who take longer than the average to conceive, the cause, in around 40% of cases, lies with the male partner. Other research has indicated that up to eighty percent of birth defects are caused by defective male sperm.
Poor sperm health, whether it be a low count, poor motility or malformations, can generally be improved by optimising the father’s overall health and nutritional status. But it is sensible to start this process as soon as possible. Sperm take ten weeks to develop sufficiently to leave the body, so planning for a pregnancy should start at least three months before conception takes place. That means giving up smoking, alcohol and social/recreational drugs, checking for genito-urinary infections, avoiding hot baths and tight clothing, eating healthily and taking supplementation, when necessary, to help redress nutritional imbalances. Drinking plenty of water is also important – at least 2 litres a day. Water is a large component of sperm, so a good, regular supply is vital in the process of production.
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 provide extra protection for sperm DNA from oxidative damage, the likelihood of which increases with age
Vitamen Boost 2 – a specialised amino acid powder with Zinc and Selenium to provide extra important nutrients involved with sperm count, motility and morphology. Developed especially for men with known sperm issues
