Vitamin E and sperms

Vitamin E is a well-known fat soluble vitamin for its antioxidant actions. Few food products rich in vitamin E are: sunflower oil, safflower oil, almonds, mangoes,avocados etc. Studies have shown that vitamin E if taken along with certain antiestrogenic drugs (like clomiphene ) can increase sperm count and sperm motility.

Low sperm count is called oligospermia (generally less than 15 million sperms per ml) and decreased sperm motility is called asthenospermia. Oligospermia isn’t an uncommon cause of oligospermia.

Clomiphene is an anti-estrogenic drug used for treatment of infertility. Clomiphene is used in women to induce ovulation as a part of infertility treatment in women. Although people are concerned about risk of various infertility drugs a recent study showed no association between infertility drugs and ovarian cancer.
