The Chemistry Between Us

When it comes to love, people frequently refer to “chemistry” as the unexplained intangible that brought them together. When it comes to conception, the right chemistry is critical for both genders. According to Statistics Canada, infertility for couples trying to conceive spanning 1984 to 2014 rose from 5.4% to 15.7%.[1]

Infertility is clinically referred to as a year of sexual activity without contraception not resulting in pregnancy. The cause can be attributed to either gender in one third of cases respectively, with the remaining third of situations open to debate. The science of prenatal nutrition has traditionally focused more on females; however, there are plenty of lifestyle adjustments and nutrients critical for male fertility.

Let’s start the discussion with a few lifestyle suggestions: If you smoke, try quitting; cut back on caffeine and alcohol intake; trade in the bikini briefs for looser-fitting boxer shorts; and keep your cell phone out of your front pocket.

There are also vitamins, minerals, and nutraceuticals that elevate sperm count, protect their delicate DNA, and improve their motility (ability to reach their destination).

New Roots Herbal’s Generation is formulated with ten specific nutrients that maximize male fertility from multiple perspectives.

Six robust compounds comprise the backbone of our robust formula. ʟ‑Carnitine serves a dual role, as it increases energy and sexual stamina along with being an antioxidant to protect sperm cells from free radicals. N‑Acetylcysteine (NAC) is a potent antioxidant clinically proven to improve sperm production and motility. Coenzyme Q10 serves a similar role to NAC, as it delivers antioxidant protection for sperm cells while energizing mitochondria for increased motility. Astaxanthin, a potent carotenoid naturally sourced from freshwater algae, further protects sperm from free-radical exposure for better motility and the energy necessary for fertilization. Generation also includes ashwagandha root extract (5% withanolides), proven in clinical trials to elevate sperm production up to 167%. Naturally sourced lycopene amplifies resistance of sperm cells to oxidative stress for increased numbers and protection of their delicate DNA.

Vitamins C and E broaden the spectrum of Generation in two ways. Vitamin C deficiency is associated with low sperm counts and poor motility; adequate levels of this antioxidant are essential. Vitamin E is a micronutrient recognized for its role in spermatogenesis which directly impacts the quantity and quality of sperm cells.

We’ve included a tandem of motility minerals in our formula: zinc and selenium collectively impact the ability of sperm to reach its destination. Zinc is also critical for sperm development.

Considering the process of spermatogenesis takes three months, the time is now to trust New Roots Herbal to prepare you for the next generation.
