How to increase male fertility

To tackle male infertility from unknown causes, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplementation are recommended. Lifestyle changes that can increase male fertility include: quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and—for men whose body mass index (BMI) is 29 or higher—losing 5–10% of total body weight in a safe, controlled manner. Eating a balanced diet that provides key nutrients is important, as is taking a nutritional supplement that enhances fertility (such as Fruitful for Him). For example, Fruitful for Him contains vitamin E, L-carnitine and selenium, which counteract reactive oxygen species (ROS) in seminal fluid and improve sperm health.
