Dietary antioxidants for Sexual Health


Nowadays, the health benefits of antioxidants are being trumpeted in t.v. commercials and other marketing materials in radio and in print. From newspapers to television sets, the antioxidant craze is here and its hear to stay. It is believed that antioxidant may help prevent the development of cancer, slow-down the aging process, prevent chronic diseases, and many more.

Recent medical studies suggest that antioxidants may also bring improvements in male sexual health. Dietary antioxidants are the human body's main protection against free radical attacks. These free radicals are compounds that may damage other healthy cells in the body. Environmental factors like pollution, cigarette smoke, and many more may carry free radicals. Fortunately, there are a number of vitamins and minerals that can help a person maintain if not reclaim health and an overall sense of well-being. The essential nutrients that are deemed important for our daily sustenance include the following:

Vitamin C

Vitamins C, also called ascorbic acid, is one of the versatile antioxidants known to man. It may strengthen the tiny vessels that carry oxygen and other nutrients that are sent to all parts of the body. Recent studies suggest that sub-fertility in men which is caused by sperm clumping which impairs sperm motility and preventing them to swim can improved with Vitamin C intake. Supplements of 500 milligrams of this vitamin may reduce sperm clumping by over 23 percent in just one week. Sperm count, motility, and lifespan may also be improved because of Vitamin C supplementation.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin that may penetrate cell membranes and protect them from free radical attacks. It is important for men to obtain adequate amounts of this vitamin because it plays a role in promoting sperm motility. Vitamin E is also beneficial on the flexibility of the sperm walls. Daily supplementation of about 100 milligrams of Vitamin E are beneficial for overall sperm health and motility. This kind of vitamin is non-toxic and might be safe at 1,000 milligrams per day.

Zinc

Zinc is important for cell division and production of healthy sperm. It is probably the most essential mineral for male sexual health. Testosterone metabolism, testicle growth, sperm production, and motility are some of the health benefits of proper zinc supplementation. The body does not naturally produce zinc that is why it is important to take adequate amounts of this mineral. Men need a minimum of 15 milligrams of zinc in their daily diet. 


In addition to taking the right supplements, individuals should avoid alcohol and cigarettes. Alcohol may hamper testosterone production and hasten the conversion of estrogen in the liver. This may lead to lowered sperm count and decreased sex drive. Alcohol may also hamper the absorption of many vitamins and minerals. Recent medical studies suggest that refraining from alcohol may improve sperm quality. Cigarette smoking, on the other hand, generates enormous amounts of free radicals that make smokers vulnerable to sperm damage.

Understanding the health benefits of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals are essential in improving one's sexual function and optimum health. However, it is important to seek the approval of medical specialists before taking supplementation of these antioxidants. Taking these too much or too little of these antioxidants may do more harm than good.
