Nourishing Egg and Sperm Quality with Ayla Barmmer MS, RD, LDN
Advanced antioxidant support for optimal egg and sperm quality*
Oxidative stress is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells. Eggs and sperm are susceptible to damage from oxidative stress, so upping your intake of antioxidants via food and supplements can help combat this. It’s also essential to fully address sources of oxidative stress in every aspect of your life. You can do this by quitting tobacco, pulling back on drinking, improving the air quality in your home, filtering tap water, moving regularly, eating a colorful, well-varied, antioxidant-rich diet, and choosing supplements that provide a hefty dose of antioxidants.
Antioxidants hold a special place in supporting male and female fertility by strengthening the body's defenses against harmful free radicals. Consider the development of eggs – a process called folliculogenesis – that occurs many months before ovulation. During this phase, an essential antioxidant called glutathione shields eggs from oxidative harm. For men, semen and sperm rely on glutathione to create a key part of sperm mitochondria (aka the energy-producing powerhouse of the cell). Low glutathione levels can compromise egg quality and sperm motility. Antioxidants promoting glutathione production, like NAC, CoQ10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid, can support cell membrane structure and function.*
