Combined Conventional/antioxidant "Astaxanthin" Treatment For Male Infertility: A Double Blind, Randomized Trial
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In infertile men given 16mg of astaxanthin daily for three months noted reductions in serum Inhibin B (29%) and improvements in seminal reactive oxygen species content (to 25% of baseline) although no other sperm parameter such as count of morphology was affected. Pregnancy rates increased with supplementation relative to placebo, possibly related to significant improvements in sperm adherence to oocytes.
