When couples decide to try for a family, it is not only women who should look after their diet and lifestyle in order to maintain their health and support conception.
Wellman Conception forms part of the Vitabiotics Wellman range, the UK's number 1 men's supplement brand. Many men now recognise the importance of getting themselves in shape and adopting a healthier lifestyle when trying for a baby and Wellman Conception recognises that men have reproductive health needs of their own.
Wellman Conception has been developed to provide a comprehensive combination of vitamins and minerals and bio-active nutrients to help support all round health and vitality, as well as specific nutrients which have been chosen for their role in fertility and reproduction. One tablet should be taken daily as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle, ideally three months before trying to conceive, while, at the same time, Pregnacare Conception has been specially designed for your partner, including vitamin B12, vitamin D and 400mcg folic acid (Vit. B9).
Fertility and Reproduction
Wellman Conception is a comprehensive formulation with specific nutrients, including zinc which contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. Zinc and vitamin C also contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, an important consideration for healthy sperm production as sperm can be damaged by free radicals. These nutrients also help contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
Zinc is arguably one of the most important minerals for the male reproductive system as semen contains 100 times more zinc than is found in the blood. In fact each ejaculate contains around 5mg of zinc; one half of the whole recommended daily nutrient intake, therefore 15mg of zinc has been included within the formulation.
Testosterone and Spermatogenesis
Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, while zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood and selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis. Folate, iron, magnesium and vitamin B12 have a role in cell division, plus vitamin A, which has a role in the process of cell specialisation.
