Data from an independent, placebo-controlled, “gold standard” clinical study indicates that the use of the supplement, FertilAid for Men, resulted in marked improvements in male fertility and sperm health. Specifically, the results of this important study reveal that taking FertilAid for Men significantly increases “total normal sperm motility” – with a tendency toward an “increase in total mobile sperm count”.
Conducted by reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. J.E. Ellington, and pharmacologist, Dr. G.D. Clifton, the randomized, double-blind FertilAid for Men study was conducted through 2006 over a three month period to determine the effects of FertilAid on men with ‘”abnormal sperm parameters”, as defined by the World Health Organization.

The results of the FertilAid study revealed a “significant improvement” in the number of motile sperm, or “total normal sperm motility”.
According to Dr. J.E. Ellington, “men with higher levels of motile, normally shaped sperm have shown better pregnancy outcomes in several [independent] studies.”
A defining characteristic of sperm health is sperm motility – or the ability of sperm to move in a progressive, unidirectional manner. Motile sperm display the capacity to swim in a sustained, forward-moving fashion. Importantly, motile sperm also exhibit an increased ability to fertilize an egg. Non-motile or abnormally-motile sperm, on the other hand, show a decreased capacity to cause fertilization (or pregnancy).
In determining healthy sperm function, the “total normal sperm motility” is a fundamental aspect or “parameter” for defining fertility health in human males. The FertilAid for Men Study results indicate statistically-significant improvements in sperm motility for subjects using the dietary supplement.
Study designer, Dr. Ellington, also suggests that the use of FertilAid for Men may improve sperm count. The FertilAid study showed a tendency toward an increase in total mobile sperm count, which corroborates previous independent studies focusing on specific ingredients contained in the FertilAid for Men formula – particularly various antioxidants and the amino acid, L-Carnitine.
