For those couples who are struggling with fertility issues, sometimes it’s the man who is having the problem. Idiopathic male infertility is a condition where a man is unable to cause pregnancy in a fertile female. The term idiopathic means the cause is not known or arises spontaneously.

Male infertility doesn’t get much attention from the press, but it does account for almost half of all infertility cases, and is typically due to deficiencies in a man’s semen. Couples who are trying to conceive a child can become very downhearted when faced with the prospect that “for some reason, it’s just not happening.”

According to an article on FoodConsumer.org, researcher David Liu, PhD, mentions that there are several things a man can take to deal with idiopathic infertility. Besides garlic, fish oil, and peanuts, Liu recommends arginine.

A pre-cursor to nitric oxide, arginine is an amino acid that serves many important functions in the body including cell division, removing ammonia, healing wounds and releasing hormones. Arginine helps get the blood oxygenated and flowing well throughout the body. It has been used, in conjunction with other treatments, to help men deal with erectile dysfunction, as well as several other problems.

Arginine is mentioned in the July 2014 Seminars in Reproductive Medicine academic journal as something that may help with idiopathic male infertility. While the body naturally makes arginine, sometimes, for various reasons, it may not be making enough.

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a powdered supplement with a berry flavor. Mixed with water, it becomes a refreshing drink that contributes to a person’s overall health, delivering arginine and other beneficial ingredients to the body. If you’re dealing with infertility issues, it may be wise to increase you intake of arginine to your daily diet, to see if it solves infertility problems.
