Because fertility outcomes rely on both egg *and* sperm, Natalist is proud to offer products for both men and women trying to conceive.
By Natalist CEO Vernita Brown
If you’re trying to conceive, you’ve probably already purchased prenatal vitamins, ovulation and pregnancy tests, maybe a DHA or Iron supplement, as well. But is there more that you can be doing to optimize TTC? Why, yes! You see, female fertility is only half of the equation, so we’ve put together a collection of products that support male fertility.
Prenatal for him
A high-quality, extensively researched multivitamin for men that has been shown to improve semen quantity and sperm quality in men who are TTC. This prenatal vitamin comes in a monthly subscription, with daily packs to make your vitamin routine even easier.
Formulated with 7 high-quality ingredients, the Prenatal for him contains antioxidants shown to increase sperm DNA fragmentation and live birth, as well as other vitamins and minerals to help with erectile dysfunction (ED) and increase sperm motility.
Natalist’s FDA-cleared, fertility-friendly personal lubricant is formulated to simulate the natural environment where human sperm thrive—fertile cervical mucus. This clean, water-based, pH balanced lubricant keeps the little guys swimming so you can increase your chances of TTC. The Lube is also paraben-free, meaning it contains no harmful buildup of chemicals that will reduce your fertility.
The Lube comes in single-use packets for home or travel, and without the need for a clunky applicator.
Guide to Male Fertility e-book
Containing nutrition and lifestyle guidance for men who are TTC, the Guide to Male Fertility e-book was written by a urologist and a nutritionist with expertise in male fertility.
- Provides an understanding of the father's role in reproduction and how his lifestyle can impact fertility
- Offers evidence to support potential enhancement of male fertility through diet and lifestyle
- Covers what potential endocrine disruptors could be affecting your fertility. A properly-functioning endocrine system is critical for healthy sperm production and sexual function
At-home Sperm Analysis
We’ve partnered with Legacy to provide a clinical-grade, at-home sperm analysis. The analysis uses key metrics to determine the health and quality of sperm, including volume, count, concentration, motility, and morphology. You will also receive personalized recommendations based on your results.
Legacy is as accurate as a clinical analysis, and follows the World Health Organization’s guidelines for sperm examination. You’ll also receive a free copy of the Guide to Male Fertility e-book, and if you act quickly, you can get a special discount on your purchase.
Vitamin D3 Gummies
Our tasty “sunshine” vitamin gummies boost immune function, healthy bones, and healthy teeth. Not only that, but vitamin D supports IVF outcomes, reduces symptoms of PCOS and endometriosis, and is beneficial for men’s fertility as well. This systematic review found that vitamin D supplementation can aid in spermatogenesis (sperm production) as well as sperm quality. It may even help with erectile dysfunction— research shows that vitamin D supplementation may help delay the onset of ED—and may even restore normal sexual function to some men when coupled with positive lifestyle changes.
An antioxidant fertility supplement for both of you- CoQ10 supports both egg quality and sperm health. Antioxidants help the body combat reactive oxygen species, which are unstable molecules that easily react and damage other molecules in the cell. If you have too many reactive oxygen species in your body, and not enough antioxidants to neutralize them, it can lead to damage to various tissues, including sperm. Damaged sperm means slower moving sperm that won’t be able to get to the egg and fertilize it properly. Research shows that CoQ10 supplementation resulted in improved sperm motility, quality, and quantity.
Fiber might not do much for reproductive health, but our fiber supplement is great for improving gut health, constipation, hemorrhoids, and even heart health. Research shows that psyllium (found in our fiber supplement) can help lower cholesterol when paired with a heart-healthy diet.
These plant-based fiber capsules are great for overall digestive relief, and can be taken with water or added to a smoothie for a healthy start to the day.
