Support healthy sperm production with male fertility supplements

Improve your sperm health at home.

Male fertility supplements support healthy sperm production and optimal male hormone health. Legacy’s male fertility supplements use high-quality, evidence-based ingredients — no pseudoscience.

Do you need a male fertility supplement?

Evidence-based male fertility supplements include nutrients that may help:

  • Boost poor parameters, such as low sperm count or motility.
  • Maintain healthy parameters in the face of damaging forces, like illness, lifestyle habits, and environmental exposure.

TOTAL NUMBER OF SPERM
A healthy sperm count means you’re producing and ejaculating enough sperm. A higher number improves your chances of conception, naturally or via fertility treatments.
How many of your sperm are able to move or “swim”
Motility is the percentage of your sperm that are moving properly; in order to fertilize an egg, your sperm must be “swimming.” Many at-home sperm count tests don’t include this essential metric, one of the most important factors in your fertility.
How many of your sperm are the right size and shape
A sperm’s structure affects its ability to reach and fertilize an egg. Morphology is the percentage of sperm that are normally shaped; abnormalities may indicate poor sperm development or genetic issues. Fun fact: most sperm are abnormally shaped. Morphology as low as 4–14% is totally normal.
The genetic health of your sperm
The integrity of the DNA in sperm is an important factor in your ability to create a healthy pregnancy. Age, illness, and lifestyle can cause damage to your sperm's DNA, called DNA fragementation. Unfortunately, DNA fragmentation is not tested as part of a typical semen analysis. Our kit is the only at-home test that includes DNA fragmentation anlaysis.

How fertility supplements work

The testes are producing sperm constantly — and they need a lot of different resources from your body to do so. Male fertility vitamins work to supplement the specific nutrients that your body needs to make healthy sperm.

01

Antioxidants

02

Vitamin D

03

Zinc

04

Folate or folic acid

Antioxidants
Antioxidants such as CoQ10, vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene, and selenium. Antioxidants work to protect sperm by fighting “free radicals” — unstable molecules that can damage cells.
Vitamin D
Studies show vitamin D may improve male fertility, improving sperm motility and the ability of a sperm to fertilize an egg (known as “capacitation”).
Zinc
Zinc is essential for male fertility. This mineral is involved in spermatogenesis (sperm production) and testosterone release.
Folate or folic acid
Folate, a type of B-vitamin, is used in the creation, maturation, and development of sperm, and in the production of healthy DNA — the genetic material carried by sperm.
Can you get these nutrients from food?
In some cases, yes. But it’s difficult for most people to get enough from their diet and lifestyle. Male fertility supplements help fill in the gaps and address deficiencies, to ensure your body can support optimal sperm production.

CoQ10 for male fertility

Add a powerful sperm health antioxidant to your daily routine.

Studies show that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 or “CoQ10,” an antioxidant, may improve sperm concentration, motility, and morphology by protecting sperm from damage.

CoQ10 is the male fertility supplement with the most extensive evidence supporting its use. Clinical trials and meta-analyses have found that CoQ10 may have a “profound” effect on sperm quality after 3–6 months of use.

  • Contains ubiquinone, a form of CoQ10 backed by thousands of studies that support its safety and efficacy
  • Three-month supply – recommended based on the sperm production cycle (2–3 months)
  • Small, easy-to-swallow capsules

Frequently asked questions

Male fertility supplements, also known as male fertility multivitamins or male prenatal vitamins, are specific nutrients, or a blend of nutrients, that support healthy sperm production and male hormone health. Natural male fertility supplements may include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.

A number of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other supplements have been studied for their effects on male fertility and sperm health. Here is an overview of the top male fertility supplements that are best supported by evidence:

  • CoQ10. CoQ10 is a strong antioxidant. CoQ10 has a long history of use as a male fertility supplement, with extensive research documenting an increase in sperm concentration. Motility, morphology, and fertilization rates have all been shown to improve after CoQ10 supplementation.
  • Vitamin C. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C may protect sperm from oxidative stress damage. Studies show that vitamin C supplementation is associated with a significant increase — up to 200% — in sperm count, motility, and morphology.
  • Vitamin D. Vitamin D male fertility supplementation is associated with improved sperm motility and capacitation (the changes a sperm undergoes before fertilizing an egg), higher testosterone, improved sexual function, and increased pregnancy rates.
  • Vitamin E. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that can decrease oxidative stress and may have a protective effect on sperm, especially in combination with vitamin C, selenium, and CoQ10. Research shows these antioxidants are associated with improved sperm genetic health and quality.
  • Folate/folic acid. Folate, a B vitamin, is used in the production and development of sperm. There is strong scientific evidence that suggests boosting folate levels increases sperm concentration and may improve semen quality overall, especially in combination with selenium, zinc, and vitamin E.
  • Zinc. One of the most essential elements for male fertility, zinc is involved in a number of critical reproductive processes, such as spermatogenesis (sperm production) and testosterone release. Zinc male fertility supplementation has been associated with a significant increase in semen volume, sperm motility, and normal sperm morphology, as well as improved hormone health and sexual function.
  • Selenium. Selenium is an important trace mineral with antioxidant properties. There’s strong evidence that selenium — alone or in combination with vitamins C and E or folate — improves sperm count, motility, morphology, and genetic health. Selenium supplementation is also associated with increased testosterone levels and decreased levels of MDA, a marker of oxidative stress.
  • L-carnitine. L-carnitine is derived from an amino acid and is involved in the production of energy in the body. Supplementation has been shown to improve sperm motility (possibly by supporting mitochondrial function), sperm capacitation, and fertilization rates.
  • D-aspartic acid. D-AA is an amino acid that regulates testosterone release. Studies suggest that supplementation with D-AA can increase sperm concentration and motility, as well as pregnancy rates. There’s also some evidence that taking D-AA may boost testosterone and sex drive.
  • Lycopene. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant. There’s evidence that adding lycopene to your diet may improve many aspects of male fertility — including sperm count, viability, quality, and genetic health — as well as pregnancy rates. It may also protect against oxidative stress.

 

Male fertility vitamins are ideal for anyone who wants to improve their sperm health. This includes those who are trying to conceive right now, either naturally or through fertility treatments. It also includes anyone who is trying to improve their fertility health before freezing and storing their sperm.

Sperm takes about 72 days to produce. That means your current sperm quality is a reflection of your overall health and environment for the past 2–3 months.

Therefore, we recommend starting male fertility multivitamins in advance, keeping in mind that you should see the effects of these vitamins for male fertility after about 3 months.
CoQ10, as well as the 10 active ingredients in the Male Fertility Supplement, have all been studied in clinical trials. Supplementation with these ingredients has been associated with improved semen parameters, such as sperm concentration, motility, morphology, and sperm DNA fragmentation.

However, fertility supplements are not a one-size-fits-all solution. If you’re experiencing difficulty conceiving or infertility, the best treatment for you depends on what’s causing the issue.

Testing your sperm is the best way to understand where you are now, and what path you might take to improve your fertility. We offer at-home semen analysis so you can start your fertility journey with clear, comprehensive data.

Fertility supplements work best in tandem with other lifestyle changes to support optimal fertility. Legacy’s semen analysis report comes with personalized lifestyle recommendations. Learn more about improving your sperm health.
All studies point to yes — CoQ10 supplementation is associated with improved markers of male fertility.

CoQ10 is the male fertility supplement with the most extensive evidence supporting its use. Clinical trials and meta-analyses have found that CoQ10 may have a “profound” effect on sperm quality after 3–6 months of use.

CoQ10 may also help improve female fertility. Studies have found that CoQ10 supplementation is associated with increased pregnancy rates for infertile women undergoing fertility treatment.
Many male fertility multivitamins have been clinically tested and shown to be associated with improved semen parameters, like sperm concentration, motility, morphology, and sperm DNA fragmentation.

However, this does not necessarily directly translate to improved conception or pregnancy rates. There’s limited data about the relationship between male fertility vitamins and pregnancy rates. We do know, however, that better semen parameters have been correlated with a higher chance of natural conception and conception via fertility treatments.

Increasing your chances of conceiving will depend on your personal fertility and sexual health as well as your partner’s. Learn more about trying to conceive.
It’s a great sign that your sperm is healthy right now.

There are many influences — some of which aren’t even in your control — that can affect your fertility health. These influences include age, illness (especially infections and illnesses that include fever), lifestyle habits (such as smoking), and environmental exposure.

CoQ10 and the Male Fertility Supplement contain antioxidants that protect sperm from stress. Therefore, taking these supplements may help maintain your sperm health, even in the face of potentially damaging forces.
Legacy’s CoQ10 supplement is best for you if you already take a daily multivitamin, or have a vitamin “stack,” that contains the ingredients in the Male Fertility Supplement.

The Male Fertility Supplement is best for you if you’re looking for a comprehensive male multivitamin for fertility.
We don’t recommend taking the Legacy Male Fertility Supplement and CoQ10 together, as the Male Fertility Supplement already contains the recommended daily dosage of CoQ10.
That depends on the ingredients in the other supplement, and whether taking both would exceed the recommended daily dose of specific nutrients. Remember, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen.
The recommended dosage for the Male Fertility Supplement is two capsules per day. The two capsules can be taken together, or at separate times throughout the day.
One CoQ10 softgel contains 100mg of CoQ10. We recommend taking 200–300mg, or 2–3 softgels, per day (or as directed by your doctor). The 2–3 softgels can be taken together, or at separate times throughout the day.
When taken at the recommended dosage, side effects from CoQ10 and the ingredients in the Male Fertility Supplement are rare and mild. We recommend talking to your doctor before starting any new regimen.
Sperm takes about 72 days to produce. That means your current sperm quality is a reflection of your overall health and environment for the past 2–3 months. Therefore, you should see the effects of these vitamins for male fertility after about 3 months.

We recommend taking male fertility vitamins for 3–6 months if you’re trying to conceive or looking to improve your sperm health before freezing.
By retesting! We recommend retesting 2–3 months after implementing any lifestyle changes or new supplements. Order an at-home sperm test.
