Daily Wellness Company Fertility Blend for Men was developed based on published scientific literature on nutritional components that benefit fertility and have a safe history of usage. All ingredients have been scientifically studied to determine their individual benefits. The formula has showed excellent results and safety in studies conducted with Stanford University Medical School.
Created by leading researchers, FertilityBlend is the first nutritional product to synergistically combine key natural ingredients into specifically designed men's and women's formulations.
What is Fertility Blend?
FertilityBlend for Men is a scientifically validated herbal/nutritional blend to improve fertility health by improving sperm quality and motility (spontaneous motion). This premium combination of herbs, vitamins and minerals improves overall health and helps address many of the deficiencies known to decrease fertility health. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that has been shown to be critical to the formation of healthy, active sperm. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found in Dong quai, has also been shown to improve sperm quality. The antioxidants vitamin C and E, green tea and selenium improve overall reproductive health. Zinc and B Vitamins (B6, B12, and folate) are critical nutrients in the male reproductive system for proper hormone metabolism, sperm formation and motility.
How is FertilityBlend for Women different from FertilityBlend for Men?
Both FertilityBlend for Men and FertilityBlend for Women provide a natural, nutritional approach to improve fertility and reproductive health. Highly respected medical doctors and a nutritional science Ph.D., formulated these blends to address the fertility issues specific to men and to women. FertilityBlend for Women contains chasteberry, L-arginine and other nutrients unique to the women's formula that help hormone balance and uterine health. FertilityBlend for Men addresses issues specific to male fertility, particularly sperm count, motility and linearity, with L-carnitine and other nutrients unique to the men's formula. Both formulas contain a wide variety of antioxidants for improving overall reproductive health.
Is FertilityBlend a drug?
FertilityBlend for Men is not a drug. It is a daily nutritional supplement. While it is not intended for the treatment of any disease, it may be used as a "soft" approach to optimize fertility in a natural manner, as an option prior to, or instead of, "hard" options such as in vitro fertilization or fertility drugs. Although FertilityBlend for Women should not be combining with IVF or fertility drugs due to possible hormone interactions, men's FertilityBlend should not interfere with these type of fertility treatments.
Why are nutritional supplements preferable to drugs?
Nutritional supplements take a more gradual, gentle, natural approach compared to drugs. The focus with supplements is the optimization of health and wellness, rather than the treatment of disease. Drugs are used for the treatment of specific conditions, often by altering biological pathways, sometimes in a very powerful or unnatural manner, and often with undesirable side effects.
Why is FertilityBlend better than supplementation with the individual ingredient sold separately?
FertilityBlend for Men is formulated to allow the ingredients to work in concert, at optimum levels of each individual ingredient. The combination of these ingredients results in a synergistic effect that exceeds the benefits possible with any single one of these ingredients. The amounts of each ingredient are at the lowest possible effective dose, and are combined for convenience of use. The Daily Wellness Company also ensures the use of only the highest possible quality of standardized ingredients.
How is FertilityBlend different from other natural products on the market that claim they can improve fertility?
FertilityBlend is a major U.S. brand of product in this category. Traditional formulations are not subject to the same scientific scrutiny as FertilityBlend, nor do they undergo the double-blind, placebo-controlled studies that FertilityBlend for Men has undertaken. The Daily Wellness Company, the maker of this product, is committed to supporting scientific research. The company has taken a methodical and clinical approach toward the development of FertilityBlend in order to establish the highest level of credibility and consumer trust.

In general, how does it work?
FertilityBlend for Men was developed on the basis of published scientific literature on individual nutritional components that benefit fertility health. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that has been shown to be critical to the formation of healthy, active sperm. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found in Dong quai, has also been shown to improve sperm quality. The antioxidants vitamin C and E, green tea and selenium improve overall reproductive health by reducing free radical damage. Zinc and B Vitamins (B6, B12, and folate) are critical nutrients in the male reproductive system for proper hormone metabolism, sperm formation and motility.
How much do I take and how long before it starts to work?
As a dietary supplement, take 3-4 capsules per day with food for the first month, followed with continued use of at least 2 capsules per day with food. Use for at least 3 months before expecting a significant alteration in sperm quality and fertility. If conception is not achieved within this time, you may want to have your partner take FertilityBlend for Women. Female fertility issues are often due to hormonal imbalances or stress factors that decrease the rate of egg release. You may also want to check with doctor to determine whether there are any physical causes for low fertility that can be corrected by standard medical procedures. Usually doctors recommend at least a year of trying to conceive before undergoing extensive fertility tests.
Has FertilityBlend been clinicaly tested?
Nutritional studies are currently ongoing for Men. Results will be submitted for presentation and publication in major medical forums and journals.
What causes fertility issues?
As many as 15% of couples in the U.S. have difficulty conceiving a child. In about one third of these cases, it is the man that has low fertility; in another third, the female has fertility issues. The remaining third is due to combined male and female infertility issues, or unknown causes. In many of these cases, the causes of low fertility can be addressed.
Most cases of low male fertility display an abnormal sperm count or low sperm motility. Even though it takes only one sperm to fertilize an egg, there are many natural barriers in the female reproductive system that keep sperm from reaching the egg. Out of 200 million sperm in an average ejaculate, only 40 reach the vicinity of the eggs. Low sperm count or motility dramatically reduces the chances of the sperm reaching the egg.
In about 10% of the cases of low sperm count (oligospermia) the cause can be identified and treated by standard medical procedures. In the other 90%, the cause of low sperm count cannot be identified and is called "idiopathic oligospermia". Many of these cases, however, can be treated by changes in lifestyle and nutrition.
Why is nutrition important?
Often a reduction in intake of alcohol, tobacco, prescription or nonprescription drugs, or avoidance of environmental contaminants can enhance sperm production. Usually an improvement in nutrition or supplementation also is necessary to reverse damage to the reproductive system incurred by stress or past abuses. Sperm are highly susceptible to free radical or oxidative damage from environmental toxicants and natural aging. Vitamins C and E, green tea and selenium are all potent antioxidants that help improve sperm counts and quality by reducing free radical damage. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found in Dong quai, has also been shown to improve sperm quality. Zinc and B vitamins (especially B6 and B12) are critical nutrients in male reproductive systems for several reasons, including hormone metabolism, sperm formation and motility. The amino acids, L-arginine and L-carnitine have also been shown to be critical to the formation of healthy sperm. Higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts are important, but supplements are also needed to get sufficient amounts of these nutrients for noticeable effects on sperm quality.
When do I take it?
Take 2-4 capsules daily, any time of day, but preferably split into 2 doses to spread out absorption. If taking vitamins or minerals on an empty stomach bothers you, take after meals.
What if I miss a day or two?
Taking any more than the recommended dose of 2-4 capsules per day will not produce any additional benefits and is not recommended. Missing a day or two will not seriously affect results. Just start taking it again as soon as you remember. If desired, you can take up to 4 capsules a day after missing a dose. Remember that results will not be optimal if you take this product sporadically.
Should I take more than the recommended dose?
Taking any more than the recommended dose of 2-4 capsules per day will not produce any additional benefits and is not recommended. Taking larger amounts than recommended can result in an upset stomach and potentially other medical problems. Please consult with your doctor immediately if you experience adverse symptoms after taking too much of any product.
Is there anyone who should avoid taking FertilityBlend?
As a general rule, anyone with pre-existing medical conditions or on prescription medications should consult with their doctor or pharmacist before starting a new diet or supplement.
Do the ingredients in FertilityBlend interact with any other foods or drugs?
The ingredients in FertilityBlend for Men have a long history of use in humans and are not known to interact in any adverse way with other foods or drugs at the recommended dose.
Is FertilityBlend regulated by the FDA and other government agencies?
The Daily Wellness Company complies with all quality control requirements recommended by the FDA. Advertising and efficacy claims regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA) are also adhered to.
The Daily Wellness Company is committed to supporting scientific research on finished formulas, not just individual ingredients. In a pilot study on FertilityBlend for Men, after 3 months the treatment group demonstrated significantly increased sperm parameters as compared to the placebo group (study being prepared for publication).
