The nutrient that fights prostate cancer also increases sperm count by 70%

Volume 6    |    Issue 32

Did you know that prostate cancer and some cases of infertility have a common link? Your anatomy professor may have told you that the prostate gland is what produces seminal fluid. So that’s the easy link. But there’s a nutrient that can help both conditions.

We’ve known for some time that the nutrient lycopene can help fight prostate cancer. But can it really help couples overcome infertility and have babies?

Fertility experts estimate that one in six couples is unable to conceive. And in about half of those cases, the problem is the result of poor sperm quality. Conventional medicine uses intracytoplasmic sperm injection, which can help with male infertility. But it’s an invasive and expensive treatment. So researchers have been looking to see if lycopene can help.

The direction of the research makes sense. Since lycopene can slow the progression of prostate cancer and seems to greatly help the health of the prostate, it’s reasonable to think it can help fertility. What the researchers are finding is impressive.

In one study, researchers found that lycopene supplementation could raise sperm count by up to 70%! But that wasn’t all the lycopene did. According to the authors of the study, the lycopene supplementation also provided conclusively “a decrease in lipid peroxidation and DNA damage, an increase in antioxidants and therefore general immunity, and improved sperm count and viability.”

What’s interesting in their statement was that the lycopene helped reduce “lipid peroxidation,” which is the oxidized cholesterol I’ve warned you about in the past. While the medical world continually tries to demonize LDL cholesterol, your body actually uses LDL to transport the lycopene to your reproductive organs. So when you take statins to forcibly lower your cholesterol, your reproductive organs won’t get the nutrition they need to stay viable. Recent studies have shown how statins can cause erectile dysfunction and low testosterone. But now we’re seeing that they can damage your sex organs and cause infertility.

Lycopene, on the other hand, can prevent LDL from oxidizing. This ability by itself is good for your prostate, as oxidized LDL can cause BPH and prostate cancer. Furthermore, the lycopene helps your prostate produce more sperm that’s viable.

So if you know of anyone with prostate problems or fertility issues, have them take a prostate formula like Advanced Prostate Formula. The nutrients in this formula are great for the health of the gland. And it has 20 mg of a proprietary lycopene complex that can bring all the benefits of lycopene directly to your prostate.
