Our beginnings: A quest for equality
A group of medical professionals puzzled over the same question: Why do women take prenatal supplements and men don’t? It highlighted a lopsided view of conception held for decades. By focusing almost solely on the women’s egg, the medical establishment had left out half of the equation.
However, new science had taught these experts that healthy sperm matters. They also recognized the way men live their lives contributes not only to their fertility but also the health of their offspring. That vision sparked a quest to give men the power to shape their reproductive destinies.
A company born of the newest science
This latest science—including breakthrough discoveries in areas such as epigenetics—also spawned the AlphaSperm story. The people behind it include Paul Turek M.D., one of the world’s leading experts in male reproductive health and the founder of male reproductive health and fertility clinics in Beverly Hills, Silicon Valley, and San Francisco. Eduardo Dolhun M.D. is a Mayo Clinic educated and trained, board-certified family physician as well as an expert in micronutrients and healthy hydration. Carolyn Givens M.D is a board-certified in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive endocrinology and infertility. She practices in San Francisco and is also on the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco. Natalie Ledesma MS, RDN, CSO, CLT is a board-certified specialist in oncology and nutrition at the University of California, San Francisco.
These professionals put their complementary expertise together in the quest for a way that men can regain power over their reproductive health. After five years of research, they developed the first prenatal vitamin and micronutrition supplement for men.
AlphaSperm forms the core of a philosophy around having a healthy baby. When a couple makes a baby, the man and the woman both contribute an equal amount of genetic material—23 chromosomes in the sperm and 23 chromosomes in the egg. Supporting the production of high-quality sperm—in sufficient quantities and with strong swimming skills—requires a healthy male body. Stopping tobacco, cannabis, hot baths, too much drinking, poor sleep, and poor dietary habits all represent a good place to start on a path to a successful pregnancy.
AlphaSperm — The boost modern men need to supplement a healthy reproductive lifestyle
In addition, the latest science has shown that certain vitamins, micronutrients and antioxidants contribute to healthy sperm production. Taken for a sustained period of time—from one to nine months prior to conception—a male prenatal may offer key advantages such as protecting the sperm’s precious DNA cargo from oxidative stress. AlphaSperm gives you the most essential antioxidants and micronutrients in a formula that uses only the highest-quality natural ingredients.
We hope you will join the men and women around the world who have begun sharing equally in having the most wonderful baby they can.
