Menevit is a male fertility supplement that is specifically formulated to help promote sperm health.
Planning to start or extend your family is an exciting time.
Women are well aware of the importance of lifestyle changes, pre-conception and pregnancy supplements. Men can also take positive steps to support conception by adopting a healthier lifestyle, and in particular being aware of sperm health. Menevit is a unique combination of antioxidants specifically formulated to maintain sperm health for couples planning pregnancy.
Factors influencing sperm health
Many things can affect sperm defenses, DNA integrity and reduce the ability to swim.
Sperm health may be affected by an unhealthy lifestyle (eg. poor diet, drinking too much alcohol, smoking, stress). Other contributing causes can include environmental factors (eg. pollution, pesticides), diseases and ill health.
Why men choose Menevit during pre-conception, to promote sperm health?
- Menevit is from the makers of Elevit, Australia’s No.1 pregnancy multivitamin*.
- Menevit supports sperm health for men, who are an equal partner in the baby making equation
- Sperm health is important as it has a very demanding role to play in fertilisation. The journey sperm undertake on their way to fertilise an egg has been likened to a human trying to swim a journey of several thousand kilometres.
