fertilsan M by amitamin® is a complimentary dietary supplement for the dietetic treatment of men with compromised fertility (Food for Special Medicinal Purposes). With its highly concentrated, balanced combination of particular nutrients fertilsan M can contribute to improving male sperm quality in cases of:
Oligospermia (low sperm count)
Asthenospermia (low motility)
Teratospermia (sub optimal morphology)
fertilsan M contains highly concentrated Vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and antioxidative vitaminoids, all essential for the generation of healthy sperm.l
Ingredients in detail
L-arginin is a semi-essential amino acid, which has several very important functions. It supports the immune system and regulates vascular tone to control the rate of blood flow. The body produces spermine and spermidine from Arginine, which is highly concentrated in the seminal fluid. Spermine has antioxidative properties, a stabilising effect on the DNA inside the sperm and plays an important role in cell division and growth.
L-carnitine is a nutrient directly derived from several amino acids and is sometimes called a Vitaminoid. L-carnitine is absolutely essential for the energy metabolism in cells. Only L-carnitine can transport fatty acids from the blood into the cells’ mitochondria, where the fats are “burned” to produce energy. Sperm in particular needs lots of energy in order to continue to swim. L-carnitine therefore plays an important role in the generation, growth and life of healthy, motile sperm cells.
Pine Bark Extract
fertilsan M by amitamin® contains 100 mg of pine bark extract per daily dose. This extract from the rind of the french maritime bark (Pinus pinaster) contains more than 95% proanthocyanidins (phytochemicals) and is known for its extraordinary anti-oxidative properties. It has been shown in dedicated studies to benefit male fertility in several ways, both directly and indirectly. No other male fertility supplements contains such a high amount of pine bark extract.
Coenzym Q10 (Ubiquinone) is a central component of the metabolic processes related to energy supply in the body. It is of critical importance in the provision of energy for sperm cell mobility.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine is strong antioxidant. The amino acid is necessary in many metabolic processes, including spermatogenesis.
Vitamin E is soluble in lipids and has pronounced anti-oxidative properties. It is effective in the cell membrane protecting the inside cell of oxidative stress.
The trace element zinc is well known for its importance in various immunological and more than 200 enzymatic processes. Sperm production can be reduced if the body does not have sufficient quantities available. Zinc can therefore contribute to improving a sperm analysis.
Selenium is also a trace element and has anti-oxidative effects. Selenium contributes to the generation of healthy spermatozoa.
Beta-Carotene is a reactant (chemical ingredient) for vitamin A and can directly neutralise free radicals. It therefore helps to reduce oxidative stress in various metabolic processes and is converted by the body to vitamin A if required.
Folic acid is important during generation of DNA, which carries the genes. Healthy levels of folic acid are critical for the production of fully-functioning sperm containing healthy DNA.
Vitamin C is and important water-soluble antioxidant and is highly concentrated in the seminal fluid.
Vitamin D is known as the "sun vitamin", because the body is able to produce it itself when exposed to sun light. In practice however most people in Western Europe lack sufficient exposure to sun light. Men with fertility problems frequently lack vitamin D
