Preconceptual Antioxidant Supplements
Men trying to conceive may significantly benefit from antioxidant supplementation. However, only a handful of antioxidant ingredients have been scientifically validated to reducing oxidative stress in the male reproductive tract. After a decade of rigorous scientific research, CellOxess scientists have identified seven natural antioxidant ingredients that are essential in maintaining male reproductive health. These ingredients were combined and formulated for optimum efficacy and long-term safety. The patented Fertilix® formulas are therefore the first range of preconceptual antioxidant supplements specifically designed to optimize sperm health and male fertility. Our core philosophy is to provide our customers with quality products to provide optimum support for a healthy reproductive system and conception
How do we know which antioxidants are the right antioxidants for male reproductive health?
A wide variety of antioxidants occur naturally in foods, and many are made in our bodies. It took our team of the world’s premier sperm biologists and medicinal chemists some 10 years to critically examine the scientific literature, even as far back as the early 1920’s, for an in-depth understanding of the role of these antioxidants in male fertility. But this was only the first step. We then had to pay meticulous attention to the differences between supplemental versus dietary antioxidants to ensure maximum benefit with minimum long-term side effect. For example, supplemental antioxidants such as Glutathione or CoQ10 have no or very low oral bioavailability. This simply means they are not absorbed easily by our bodies. To get around this, many manufacturing companies provide high doses thus inviting potential harm and side-effects.
Our scientists also thoroughly reviewed the scientific literature for the beneficial effects of herbal, plant or animal extracts but found no credible evidence to support their safe use in promoting sperm quality or improving male fertility. Fertilix® does NOT contain any natural product extracts.
How did we determine optimal dosing?
Delivering balanced doses of the right antioxidants is essential, not only to ensure that you experience the benefits of supplementation, but also to minimize the risk of over-supplementation. Antioxidants are critical to our health, protecting our cells from the damaging effects of oxidative stress (excess levels of free radicals and other metabolites). However, in physiological (or normal) quantities, these same metabolites are critical for cell function. Without them cells cannot survive. Over-supplementation is commonplace in the US, and may even be dangerous to our reproductive health. Specifically, over-supplementation may cause a condition called “Reductive Stress.” For example, high doses of many common antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and L-Carnitine, have even been shown to have adverse effects, even though they are critical to human health at low doses.
In many cases, different antioxidants have synergistic effects, working together to protect against oxidative stress. For example, taking Vitamin E and Vitamin C together is important, since Vitamin C naturally replenishes Vitamin E. The Fertilix® formulations were specifically designed with synergistic effects in mind, ensuring that you experience maximum benefit from the minimum levels of supplementation.
As the degree of oxidative stress varies from low to high amongst men, Fertilix® was designed in three strengths, taking into consideration age, lifestyle, and method of conception to ensure optimum dosing for each individual. Fertilix® is the first and only antioxidant supplement with such personalization.
