What is Profortil?
This is a supplement that is clinically proven and specially developed to optimise sperm quality and treat male sterility. It is targeted to increase the proportion of forward-moving sperm which is an important prerequisite for the sperm cell to reach and fertilise the egg cell. It is clinically proven that taking Profertil for a minimum of 3 months improves sperm quality. It contains L-carnitine, L-arginine, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin E, zinc, Vitamin B9 (folic acid), glutathione and selenium which are rich micronutrients to improve the quality of sperm.
How to classify sperm quality?
It is an important factor when it comes to fertilisation with the female eggs. If the sperm is not moving fast enough, it will die before they reach the ovum.
This can be divided into three categories:
- Progressive motility
- Non-progressive motility
Number of sperm
Further diagnostic tests should be provided to determine the concentration of sperm, the production of sperm and the viability of the sperm transport system.
It is the appearance of the sperm and also shape of sperm which will affect the ability and penetration of the ovum.
The proportion of living sperm cells during ejaculation
What are the causes of poor sperm quality?
- Stressful lifestyle
- Hormonal imbalance
- Location anomalies
- Genetic and diet factors
- Alcohol and drug abuse
Disturbed sperm transport
- Varicocele (Enlargement of the veins within the scrotum that holds the testicles)
- Genetic disorder
