OUR STORY

AlphaSperm — Fertility is a Team Sport

AlphaSperm was born when two long-time colleagues became fascinated with a single question. Why for almost 40 years had the medical profession emphasized the egg almost to exclusion of the sperm? They realized that fertility is a team sport—not only in terms of genetics but also at the pre-childbearing level and all the way to the birthing room and beyond. The result is a company passionately dedicated to bringing physicians and hopeful parents the latest in reproductive science. Their work in the fast-evolving field of male reproductive health focuses on the critical role sperm plays in couples conceiving and having a healthy baby. In addition to shedding light on the complex interplay of the factors involved—such overall health and lifestyle—they have worked to identify specific micronutrients, vitamins, herbals and natural antioxidants that promote healthy sperm.
