What is FertilityBlend
FertilityBlend for Men is a scientifically validated herbal/nutritional
blend to improve fertility health by improving sperm quality and motility (spontaneous
This premium combination of herbs, vitamins and minerals improves overall health
and helps address many of the deficiencies known to decrease fertility health.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that has been shown to be critical to the formation
of healthy, active sperm. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found in Dong quai, has
also been shown to improve sperm quality. The antioxidants vitamin C and E,
green tea and selenium improve overall reproductive health. Zinc and B Vitamins
(B6, B12, and folate) are critical nutrients in the male reproductive system
for proper hormone metabolism, sperm formation and motility.
How is FertilityBlend for Men different from FertilityBlend for
Both FertilityBlend for Men and FertilityBlend for Women provide
a natural, nutritional approach to improve fertility and reproductive health.
Highly respected medical doctors and a nutritional science Ph.D., formulated
these blends to address the fertility issues specific to men and to women. FertilityBlend
for Women contains chasteberry, L-arginine and other nutrients unique to the
women's formula that help hormone balance and uterine health. FertilityBlend
for Men addresses issues specific to male fertility, particularly sperm count,
motility and linearity, with L-carnitine and other nutrients unique to the men's
formula. Both formulas contain a wide variety of antioxidants for improving
overall reproductive health.
Is FertilityBlend for Men a drug?
FertilityBlend for Men is not a drug. It is a daily nutritional
supplement. While it is not intended for the treatment of any disease, it may
be used as a "soft" approach to optimize fertility in a natural manner,
as an option prior to, or instead of, "hard" options such as in vitro
fertilization or fertility drugs. Although FertilityBlend for Women should not
be combining with IVF or fertility drugs due to possible hormone interactions,
men's FertilityBlend should not interfere with these type of fertility treatments.
Why are nutritional supplements preferable to drugs?
Nutritional supplements take a more gradual, gentle, natural approach
compared to drugs. The focus with supplements is the optimization of health
and wellness, rather than the treatment of disease. Drugs are used for the treatment
of specific conditions, often by altering biological pathways, sometimes in
a very powerful or unnatural manner, and often with undesirable side effects.
Why is FertilityBlend for Men better than supplementation with
the individual ingredients sold separately?
FertilityBlend for Men is formulated to allow the ingredients
to work in concert, at optimum levels of each individual ingredient. The combination
of these ingredients results in a synergistic effect that exceeds the benefits
possible with any single one of these ingredients. The amounts of each ingredient
are at the lowest possible effective dose, and are combined for convenience
of use. The Daily Wellness Company also ensures the use of only the highest
possible quality of standardized ingredients.
How is FertilityBlend for Men different from other natural products on the market
that claim they can improve fertility?
FertilityBlend is a major U.S. brand of product in this category. Traditional
formulations are not subject to the same scientific scrutiny as FertilityBlend,
nor do they undergo the double-blind, placebo-controlled studies that FertilityBlend
for Men has undertaken. The Daily Wellness Company, the maker of this product,
is committed to supporting scientific research. The company has taken a methodical
and clinical approach toward the development of FertilityBlend in order to establish
the highest level of credibility and consumer trust. Click here to see consumer
In general, how does FertilityBlend for Men work?
FertilityBlend for Men was developed on the basis of published
scientific literature on individual nutritional components that benefit fertility
health. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that has been shown to be critical to the
formation of healthy, active sperm (see eferences). Ferulic acid, an antioxidant
found in Dong quai, has also been shown to improve sperm quality. The antioxidants
vitamin C and E, green tea and selenium improve overall reproductive health
by reducing free radical damage. Zinc and B Vitamins (B6, B12, and folate) are
critical nutrients in the male reproductive system for proper hormone metabolism,
sperm formation and motility. (See the section on "How it Works").
How much do I take and how long before it starts to work?
As a dietary supplement, take 3-4 capsules per day for the first
month, followed with continued use of at least 2 capsules per day. Use for at
least 3 months before expecting a significant alteration in sperm quality and
fertility. If conception is not achieved within this time, you may want to have
your partner take FertilityBlend for Women. Female fertility issues are often
due to hormonal imbalances or stress factors that decrease the rate of egg release.
You may also want to check with doctor to determine whether there are any physical
causes for low fertility that can be corrected by standard medical procedures.
Usually doctors recommend at least a year of trying to conceive before undergoing
extensive fertility tests.
Has FertilityBlend been clinically tested in men?
Nutritional studies are currently ongoing for Men. Results will
be submitted for presentation and publication in major medical forums and journals.
As results become available, they will also be posted on this web site. See
section on "Clinical Results" for the latest updates.
What causes fertility issues in men?
As many as 15% of couples in the U.S. have difficulty conceiving
a child. In about one third of these cases, it is the man that has low fertility;
in another third, the female has fertility issues. The remaining third is due
to combined male and female ifertility issues, or unknown causes. In many of
these cases, the causes of low fertility can be addressed.
Most cases of low male fertility display an abnormal sperm count
or low sperm motility. Even though it takes only one sperm to fertilize an egg,
there are many natural barriers in the female reproductive system that keep
sperm from reaching the egg. Out of 200 million sperm in an average ejaculate,
only 40 reach the vicinity of the eggs. Low sperm count or motility dramatically
reduces the chances of the sperm reaching the egg.
In about 10% of the cases of low sperm count (oligospermia) the
cause can be identified and treated by standard medical procedures. In the other
90%, the cause of low sperm count cannot be identified and is called "idiopathic
oligospermia". Many of these cases, however, can be treated by changes
in lifestyle and nutrition.
Why is nutrition important in male fertility?
Often a reduction in intake of alcohol, tobacco, prescription
or nonprescription drugs, or avoidance of environmental contaminants can enhance
sperm production. Usually an improvement in nutrition or supplementation also
is necessary to reverse damage to the reproductive system incurred by stress
or past abuses. Sperm are highly susceptible to free radical or oxidative damage
from environmental toxicants and natural aging. Vitamins C and E, green tea
and selenium are all potent antioxidants that help improve sperm counts and
quality by reducing free radical damage. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found
in Dong quai, has also been shown to improve sperm quality. Zinc and B vitamins
(especially B6 and B12) are critical nutrients in male reproductive systems
for several reasons, including hormone metabolism, sperm formation and motility.
The amino acids, L-arginine and L-carnitine have also been shown to be critical
to the formation of healthy sperm. Higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole
grains and nuts are important, but supplements are also needed to get sufficient
amounts of these nutrients for noticeable effects on sperm quality.
When do I take it (FertilityBlend for Men)?
Take 2-4 capsules daily, any time of day, but preferably split
into 2 doses to spread out absorption. If taking vitamins or minerals on an
empty stomach bothers you, take after meals.
What if I miss a day or two (FertilityBlend for Men)?
Missing a day or two will not seriously affect results. Just start
taking it again as soon as you remember. If desired, you can take up to 4 capsules
a day after missing a dose. Remember that results will not be optimal if you
take this product sporadically.
Should I take more than the recommended dose (FertilityBlend
Taking any more than the recommended dose of 2-4 capsules per
day will not produce any additional benefits and is not recommended. Taking
larger amounts than recommended can result in an upset stomach and potentially
other medical problems. Please consult with your doctor immediately if you experience
adverse symptoms after taking too much of any product.
Is there anyone who should avoid taking FertilityBlend for Men?
As a general rule, anyone with pre-existing medical conditions
or on prescription medications should consult with their doctor or pharmacist
before starting a new diet or supplement.
Do the ingredients in FertilityBlend for Men interact with any
other foods or drugs?
The ingredients in FertilityBlend for Men have a long history
of use in humans and are not known to interact in any adverse way with other
foods or drugs at the recommended dose.
Is FertilityBlend regulated by the FDA and other government agencies?
The Daily Wellness Company complies with all quality
control requirements recommended by the FDA. Advertising and efficacy
claims regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Dietary
Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA) are also adhered to.
