The creation of a healthy baby is truly one of the most magnificent miracles of life. However, some couples (about 1 in 7) experience difficulty conceiving, and what many may not realize, is that male infertility is very common, and on the rise.
About one-third of infertility cases are due to the male partner, one-third are related to the female partner, and one-third are caused by a mix of both or are due to unknown reasons.
The health of the male partner is, therefore, as vital as his partner’s, and equally impacts the ability to conceive.
In order for fertilization of the female egg to occur, the male sperm must be ‘viable’ – present in sufficient numbers and strong enough to travel to the egg and fertilize it. Herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to help maintain a healthy reproductive system and improve fertility.
Fertility Essentials for Men™ is a blend of traditional herbs that have been carefully chosen to help balance male hormonal health and support production of healthy reproductive fluids, including sperm, which may improve fertility.
