LYCOPENE Boosts Men's Fertility


Lycopene, a key ingredient in tomatoes, can improve a man’s fertility, according to a review of clinical trials published in the Asian Journal of Andrology. Researcher­s believe that by reducing oxidative stress, lycopene protects sperm against damage, increasing the odds of conception. In one study, 8 mg daily of lycopene improved sperm count by 70 percent. In the studies overall, the effective dose ranged from 4– 8 grams daily, taken for 3– 12 months.
