Background: Fertil Aid for Men is a non-prescription dietary supplement, it’s a mixture of multiple antioxidants,
vitamins, a blend of herbal ingredients, and amino acid, as L-Carnitine. This research aims to appraise the
effectiveness of a mixture of vitamins and antioxidants on seminal fluid parameters in males with idiopathic
Method: Thirty-three men with idiopathic infertility were involved inthis prospective clinical study. The baseline
semen specimens were taken from the subjects following three to seven days’ abstinence. Semen parameters
including (volume, pH, concentration, and motility) were measured. Abnormal sperm sample subjects were given
a FertilAid capsule three times daily for 90 days then final semen analysis was estimated.
The outcomes of this study demonstrated consumption of fertilAid has significantly improved sperm count/ml (p
< 0.05), also significant amelioration in the sperm motility including progressive and non-progressive motility (p
< 0.05). The rate of total sperm motility was significantly improved (p < 0.05).The concentration of immotile sperm
has considerablyreduced (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: The administration of a combination of L-Carnitine, Zinc, Maca Root, Asian Ginseng, Vitamin C, E,
