Clinical Study Title:
Sperm oxidative stress and the effect of an oral vitamin E and selenium supplement on semen quality in infertile men.
|Plain English Summary:|
|In this study, the use of vitamin E and selenium were examined to determine if it has an effect on sperm. A total of 54 men who were infertile participated in this study. They voluntarily gave a sperm sample to be analyzed in this study. Half of the participants were given a daily supplement of vitamin E and selenium, while the other participants were given daily supplements of vitamin B. The study lasted for a total of 3 months. Those participants who were using the vitamin E and selenium supplement had sperm that showed an improvement in motility, while those taking vitamin B did not have this effect. This suggests that the use of vitamin E and selenium can help to improve sperm quality, especially for men who are infertile.|
