fertilsan M Capsules & Powder
What is fertilsan M?
fertilsan M by amitamin is a complimentary dietary supplement for the dietetic treatment of men with compromised fertility (Food for Special Medicinal Purposes). With its highly concentrated, balanced combination of particular nutrients fertilsan M can contribute to improving male sperm quality in cases of:
- Oligospermia (low sperm count)
- Asthenospermia (low motility)
- Teratospermia (sub optimal morphology)
Available as capsules or as drink powder
Fertilsan M is available as capsules or as drink powder. The active ingredients are completely equal in composition and dosage, so this is just a choice of your own preference and taste. The package with the capsules contains 90 capsules for one month, 3 capsules per day to be taken. If you prefer the fertilsan M drink powder, a package contains 30 sachets with a powder that makes a drink in black cassis flavour with 0,2l of water. One drink should be taken a day, so the package is also for one month.Both variants are equally economic and effective. The choice is up to you.
Further information to promote male fertility
A healthy lifestyle is the starting point for a healthy, fully-functioning sperm production process.
Please also note:
- Avoid nicotine and alcohol as much as you can.
- Check your medication. Only take medication, which is essential to your wellbeing and has been prescribed by your doctor or recommended by your pharmacist.
- Try to avoid all toxins and hormones in your diet and your environment.
- Reduce stress as much as you can. Stress is thought to affect fertility negatively in both men and women. Enjoy a few more breaks and find new ways to relax.
- Avoid all kinds of heat. The growth of sperm cells is a highly temperature-sensitive process. Tight trousers, jeans or notebooks lead to a higher temperature as much as extensive sauna visits or hot baths. Car seat heating should also be kept to a minimum.
Possible causes of involuntary childlessness
Fertility disorders in women and men can have a wide variety of causes; age plays a role, as does lifestyle, nutrition as well as alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking.
Organic causes of fertility disorders in women:
- Hormonal disorders
- Inflammations of the genital organs
- Obstruction of the fallopian tubes
- Changes to the inner lining of the uterus
- Changes to hereditary factors
- Severe excess weight or weight deficiency
Organic causes of fertility disorders in men:
- Varicose veins in the testicles
- Impaired testicle function following an infection
- Changes to hereditary factors
- Hormonal disorders
- Undescended testes
Lifestyle and environmental factors which may have a negative effect on male and female fertility:
- Environmental pollutants
Sperm cells - crucial for fertility
Many men are oblivious to the fact that they themselves may be the cause of their involuntary childlessness. And yet statistics show how drastically sperm quality in men from industrialized countries has decreased over the last few decades. Fifty years ago the average number of sperm cells per milliliter of ejaculate was 100 million - nowadays this number has dropped to between 20 and 64 million. The age of men also plays an important role. Studies demonstrate that the ejaculate of a 45-year old man contains fewer agile and normally shaped sperm cells, compared with that of an 18-year old man.
Spermatogenesis - the miracle of life
Sperm cell formation (spermatogenesis) occurs in the seminiferous tubules of the testicles. It takes approx. 60-64 days in total. About 1,000 sperm cells are produced every second or 3-4 million every hour. During this process, the growing cells are very sensitive to harmful influences.
Only the best will make it
Given that the journey to the egg cell is very long and exhausting; the quality of the sperm cells is of crucial importance for successful fertilization. Only persevering and active lone fighters will make it to the egg cell, penetrate the surrounding cell layer and get into the egg cell.
Sperm quality - visible under the microscope
Sperm quality can be examined under the microscope to know the number, motility and shape (the spermiogram) of your sperm:
|WHO* reference values of normal sperm quality|
|Semen volume||2-5 ml|
|Number of sperm cells||20 million/ml or more|
|Motility||more than 50%|
|Rapid progressive motility||more than 25%|
|Normal shape||more than 30%|
|In many cases both the number and motility of sperm cells is reduced and there are often too many sperm cells of abnormal shape|
There is currently no bona fide way to improve deficient sperm quality, by means of drugs. However, it could be shown that certain micronutrients can have a favorable influence on the sperm quality parameters mentioned above.

How does it work?
The micronutrients contained in fertilsan M are a natural part of our diet. As a result of their nutritional features they can have a favorable effect on sperm cell quality, especially on sperm cell density and motility:
Nutritional features and characteristics of selected ingredients
|Vitamin E||Important antioxidant vitamin (radical scavenger), protects the cell membrane against free radicals; has a favorable effect on sperm cell motility|
|Vitamin C||Protects the genetic information (DNA) against attacks by free radicals. Damage to the sperm DNA results in an impairment of sperm function|
|B vitamins||Vitamins B 6 and B 12 and folic acid are important for the degradation of the metabolite homocysteine. High homocysteine levels can have a negative effect on the reproductive function|
|Zinc||Important component of antioxidant enzymes which are also present in semen; a lack of zinc is connected with a reduced testosterone production; has a favorable effect on sperm cell motility and number, as well as on the number of normally shaped sperm cells|
|Selenium||Important component of antioxidant enzymes which are also present in semen; this enzyme activity influences the viability, normal shape and motility of sperm cells|
The right combination matters
Certain micronutrients are important for sperm cell formation and maturation. Since the effects of these micronutrients complement each other, it is sensible to provide a balanced combination
|Mixed carotenoids||Antioxidants which work together with vitamin E to protect the sperm membrane against attacks by free radicals|
|Omega-3 fatty acids||Improve the fluidity of the sperm membrane - an essential prerequisite for successful fertilization|
|N-acetylcysteine||Component of an important antioxidant enzyme|
|L-carnitine||Vitamin-like substance; plays a key role in energy generation for sperm cells and in the penetration of the egg cell by the sperm; has a favorable effect on sperm motility|
|Coenzyme Q10||Vitamin-like substance; potent antioxidant and radical scavenger; has a favorable effect on sperm cell motility|
What can I do personally?
A natural therapeutic approach based on the improvement of sperm quality as a result of nutritional support has given men new hope. fertilsan is a dietary supplement (food for special medical purposes) that is available for the dietary management of male fertility disorders. It contains a well-balanced combination of specific micronutrients which are needed by the body for sperm cell formation, such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and vitamin-like substances. Boost your metabolism! This increases your enjoyment of life, virility and desire. A light endurance training of half an hour three times a week is sufficient to stimulate your metabolism.
