CoQ10 dietary supplement. Designed to enhance sperm health.*
Studies show that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 or “CoQ10,” an antioxidant, may improve sperm concentration, motility, and morphology.*Take 2–3 softgels per day as needed or as directed by your physician.
Compared to other supplements, there is a good level of scientific evidence supporting the potential benefit of CoQ10 for male fertility. This antioxidant might improve semen parameters, including sperm quantity and quality.
Understanding sperm quality
Research shows CoQ10 may boost sperm concentration, motility, and morphology when taken as part of a healthy lifestyle.
CoQ10 is an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect the body’s cells against free radicals and oxidative stress.
Free radicals are unstable molecules produced as natural byproducts of daily life, such as toxin exposure, illness, and poor lifestyle.
If left unchecked, free radicals can cause damage to our cells. This damage is known as “oxidative stress,” and can be detrimental to the health of your sperm.
Antioxidants such as CoQ10 neutralize free radicals and prevent damage. That’s why CoQ10 may support the production of healthy sperm.
Additionally, there is evidence that CoQ10 supplementation can enhance your heart health, brain health, and overall wellness.
Balercia et al, 2009: Patients with reduced sperm motility were treated with CoQ10, 200mg per day for 6 months. Supplementation was associated with increased antioxidant levels in semen and improved sperm motility (by about 19%).
Nadjarzadeh et al, 2013: Men with low sperm count and poor motility/morphology received 200mg of CoQ10 daily for 3 months. Compared to the placebo group, the supplement group had a significant improvement in sperm morphology.
Safarinejad et al, 2012: Men with unexplained infertility were treated with 200mg of CoQ10 daily for 26 weeks. Supplementation was associated with a statistically significant improvement in sperm concentration, motility, and morphology.
Safarinejad, 2009: Men with low sperm count and poor motility/morphology received 300mg of CoQ10 daily for 26 weeks. A positive correlation was found between CoQ10 treatment and sperm count, motility, and morphology.
Thakur et al, 2015: Sixty men were treated with 150mg of CoQ10 daily. After 6 months of supplementation, sperm count was increased by 53%, along with significant improvement in sperm motility.
Vishvkarma et al, 2020: Pooling data from three clinical trials on CoQ10, researchers found that supplementation had a profound effect on sperm motility, and that the ideal treatment period was 3–6 months.
