What are antioxidants? How do they affect male fertility? How can they help you improve sperm quality? What can you do to increase their level in your body?

The role of antioxidants in our body is to provide a defense system to inactivate free radicals and prevent them from causing damage. They function by creating strong bonds with free radicals. These strong bonds stabilise free radicals turning them into stable molecules that cannot cause any harm. However, while doing that they are getting used up: they will turn into stable compounds with free radicals. That is why it is so important to keep their constant supply.

What can you do to increase your antioxidants levels?

First and foremost, you need to increase their intake. On one hand, you can achieve this through a balanced nutrition, incorporating different healthy foods. It is important to include fruit and vegetables in your diet, no matter in which form – cooked, roasted, dry, blended, whatever suits you. Still, we know that many antioxidants can be destroyed by heat, so you should try to eat fresh fruit and vegetables as much as possible. Also, it is best to take supplements, and Androferti offers men a well balanced blend of antioxidants that can help improve sperm quality.
