Proxeed

Just wondering if anyone has had any success with the male supplement Proxeed. I have seen it on the internet, it is rather expensive so I was wondering if anyone has had any success with this product.

There are a few threads, this may help

Low motility can be improved by medication?

Originally posted by Eeyore


There have been European studies that have suggested that supplementation with Proxeed for a period of three to four months may improve motility and sperm counts. It is too early to say whether these early clinical findings are valid but the claims are boosted as placebo-controlled clinical trials in the United States also confirm these findings.

Before ejaculation, sperm generate the energy they need for motion primarily by burning fat. After ejaculation, sperm rely on the sugar fructose that is found in the seminal fluid. This energy production occurs just below the sperm head, in the sperm mid-piece. This portion of the sperm is filled with mitochondria, tiny furnaces that burn sugar and fat to generate energy for the "big swim." Just as with the old coal-burning steam locomotives, the mitochondria require someone to stoke the fire. In the case of sperm, that help comes from two proteins, called L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine, which facilitate transfer of fatty acids into the mitochondrial furnaces.

Rarely is a person's diet deficient in carnitine. However, studies have suggested that carnitine levels may be lower in the semen of men with low motility. Proxeed, a combination of these two proteins, may improve sperm motility in a large percentage of males with motility problems. A three- to six-month trial may result in significant improvement, making it possible to conceive either naturally or with insemination, rather than IVF

Thanks Eeyore,

I will have a look, got DH on Wellman and Zinc at the moment so will see what happens with that. Proxeed does seem expensive if its not guaranteed to improve things.
