Nutritional therapies including antioxidants may have significant potential to deal with infertility issues in both women and men, including erectile dysfunction, suggested a recent study.
During the study course, the lead study author, Francesco Visioli, at the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies in Spain and Tory Hagen, in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University observed that infertility problems are an early indicator of other degenerative diseases, including atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.
"If oxidative stress is an underlying factor causing infertility, which we think the evidence points to, we should be able to do something about it”, notified Tory Hagen. "This might help prevent other critical health problems as well, at an early stage when nutritional therapies often work best”.
While explaining the findings, Hagen said that previous work on same issue was too small or failed to focus on antioxidants. Tory Hagen claimed that successful development of new approach will play a crucial role to treat erectile dysfunction in men, egg implantation and endometriosis in women, and reduce the often serious and sometimes fatal condition of pre eclampsia during pregnancy. In addition, the technique is expected to be used for improving the quality of semen and eggs.
