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.
