How MotilityBoost for Men Works

Sperm Health and the Oxygen Paradox

For much of the 20th Century and into the 21st Century, conversations about anti-aging and disease prevention have been centered on the so-called “Oxygen Paradox.” These conversations almost always include the words “free radical”, “antioxidant:, and “reactive oxygen species”. The Oxygen Paradox is described in this way: Oxygen is essential to life. The metabolic breakdown of oxygen, however, produces reactive oxygen species (commonly referred to as free radicals) that disrupt normal cell function. These unstable oxygen molecules move around the body seeking to participate in biochemical reactions that make them more stable, which result in damage to fats and proteins that are found in the cells of our body. It is important to note that reactive oxygen species are not all bad. In fact, these breakdown products play a vital role in many normal physiological functions. For example, our immune system uses reactive oxygen species to destroy the bacteria and viruses that cause illness and disease.

The body recognizes the dangers and benefits of these free radicals (hence, the Oxygen Paradox) and is constantly performing a balancing act using a variety of “antioxidant” strategies to allow these unstable compounds to do their work without causing damage to cells. When there is an imbalance between the amount of free radicals produced and the amount of antioxidants present to counter the dangerous effects of these compounds, a condition known as oxidative stress occurs. Such an imbalance can result from either an excessive free radical load or a deficiency in antioxidants, or both. Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and chronic exposure to environmental pollutants cause an increase in the production of free radicals. On the other hand, the diets of many people lack sufficient amounts of the antioxidant nutrients that the body uses to battle free radicals. Consequently, oxidative stress is very common in the modern age, and has been implicated as the cause of a many human diseases and medical conditions, including cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Free Radicals and Anti Oxidants

In recent years, fertility experts have pointed to oxidative stress as a leading cause of male infertility. Like all other cells in the body, sperm cells constantly face the Oxygen Paradox. But, as it turns out, sperm cells have less effective antioxidant mechanisms to keep free radicals at bay, and are especially vulnerable to damage from free radicals due to the high amounts of fats contained in their cell membrane. As a result, sperm cells are often subjected to oxidative stress, leading to reduced sperm count, poor sperm motility, and even DNA damage. Researchers now believe that up to 80% of all cases of male infertility can be attributed to oxidative stress.

Sperm motility, defined as the forward, swimming motion of sperm, is a key factor in male fertility. In order for a sperm to fertilize the egg, it must travel quickly through the female reproductive system, which requires strong swimming action. Even a man with an above normal sperm count may have trouble conceiving if he has low sperm motility. Unfortunately, sperm motility is especially impacted by free radical damage. Remember: free radicals are constantly seeking stability by reacting with other types of compounds, and it is easy for them to react with fats. The membrane of a sperm cell contains large amounts of fats. When free radicals react with the fats in the cell membrane, the tail of the sperm becomes less flexible, which hampers the swimming motion of the sperm. Free radical damage to the cell membrane can also decrease the ability of the sperm to fuse with the egg at the time of fertilization. In addition, free radicals can directly damage the energy powerhouse of the sperm cell (called the mitochondria), which decreases the energy available to the cell for forward motion. The bottom line is that oxidative stress decreases the ability of the sperm to swim quickly through the reproductive tract to meet the egg for fertilization.

Combat oxidative stress with MotilityBoost for Men!

A growing body of scientific research suggests that taking antioxidant supplements can increase the antioxidant levels of seminal fluids, thereby increasing the amount of antioxidants available to neutralize free radicals and prevent devastating damage to sperm cells.

Doctor-designed MotilityBoost for Men was formulated specifically for men with low sperm motility. MotilityBoost contains an array of antioxidants that can combat oxidative stress in your body and improve sperm health. MotilityBoost also includes other herbs and nutrients known to improve sperm health. To view the MotilityBoost Supplement Facts panel, click here...

Motility Boost for Men contains:

Coenzyme Q10: CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, is a powerful antioxidant, which acts specifically to protect against free radical damage to fats. Because fats are key components of sperm cell membranes, the antioxidant activity of CoQ10 helps preserve the flexibility and strong tail motion of the sperm cell. The results of several clinical studies indicate that supplemental CoQ10 increases ClQ10 levels in seminal fluids and in sperm cells, and increases sperm motility.

N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC): N- acetyl-cysteine is a sulfur-based amino acid that is needed in the production of glutathione. Glutathione is a small protein found inside cells that plays an important role in the body’s antioxidant defense system. N-Acetyl Cysteine is quickly metabolized into glutathione once it enters the body. Glutathione then functions as a powerful antioxidant, scavenging free radicals and neutralizing their harmful effects upon cells. Research indicates that supplementation with NAC decreases oxidative stress in infertile men.

Quercetin: Quercetin is a type of flavonoid (a plant pigment) that naturally occurs in the skin of red apples and red onions. Research indicates that supplemental quercetin increases sperm motility and sperm count.

Arginine: Arginine is an amino acid that is found in dairy products, meat, poultry, fish and nuts. Arginine is a precursor of several compounds thought to play a role in sperm motility, including putrescine, spermidine, and spermine. Additionally, oxidation of arginine generates nitric oxide, which is also believed to play a role in fertility. L-arginine supplementation has been shown to increase sperm motility and sperm count in infertile men with both low sperm count and the complete absence of sperm.

L-Carnitine: Carnitine is a vitamin-like compound that help to transport fatty acids into the energy powerhouse of the cell (called the mitochondria) where they can be “burned” for energy. Carnitine supplementation is useful for men with low sperm motility because it helps the sperm cells produce energy, increasing the ability of sperm to move quickly through the female reproductive tract.

Vitamin B12 as Methylcobalamin: Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin involved in cellular replication. Various studies have demonstrated that treatment with methylcobalamin results in increased sperm motility and sperm count.

Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 is essential for the production of testosterone, and is therefore important in the production of sperm cells.

Mucuna pruriens: Mucuna pruriens is a tropical plant, commonly known as velvet bean and cowitch. The plant has many traditional uses, and is still considered to be an effective aphrodisiac. Research indicates that Mucuna pruriens increases sperm count and sperm motility.
