Antioxidants / Alpha blockers / Mast cell blockers possible treatmentsfor male factor?

Does anyone have any information on Antioxidants / Alpha blockers / Mast cell blockers possible treatmentsfor male factor?

The treatments are specifically for sperm motility / morphology issues and from the reading up I have done :

Anti-oxidant i.e Glutathione - can improve sperm quality (morph and motility)
Alpha blockers i.e Bunazosin - can improve sperm quality (morph and motility)
Mast cell blockers i.e Tranilast can improve sperm quality (morph and motility)

Has anyone had any of the above treatments or been involved in trials / tests or if you have any info on the above please drop it into this thread.

Cheers Dx

Glutathione more info

Interesting article on ROS (Reactive oxygen species) i.e harmful oxidation that has a seriously detrimental effect on semen quality and mobility.

http://ror.reproduction-online.org/cgi/reprint/1/1/6.pdf

Powerful antioxidants such as Glutathione are shown to have beneficial effect and improve quality/motility in infertile/sub fertile test subjects!!

Just a 2 month course has been shown to improve sperm.

Worth mentioning to consultants and seeing what they have to say on matter if you have a morphology or motility issue!!

Vitamin E is also beneficial and easily available - best to ask your specialist recommended dosage.
