Where do environmental harms hit fertility?

Inevitable, but true – environmental damage is playing a huge role in an increasing number of men’s fertility problems.

Unfortunately, the trend is becoming more pronounced, and the number of harmful substances is not declining, but more and more are being identified year after year. But what are these substances, since the term “environmental damage” is very general, and what do they do to male fertility?

Phthalates, pesticides

We would not even believe how often we encounter the substances mentioned above. Plastic tubes, flasks, bottles, glasses and many other objects already contain phthalates, which are also present in plastics as plasticizers.

Pesticides are a popular ingredient in herbicides. And how could we encounter herbicides? They are essential in mass production and although in theory their decomposition time must be waited for before harvest, they are also present in the soil and water, ie encountering them is unavoidable.

Both chemicals have a bad effect on testosterone production. And it does more than that. On the one hand, a decrease in testosterone production impairs sperm production and, on the other hand, leads to the development of estrogen dominance. This is accompanied by abdominal obesity, possible breast enlargement, a series of unpleasant and, last but not least, dangerous symptoms, in addition to further deteriorating sperm production.

Air pollution

Air quality affects pregnancy, the health of the unborn baby, his intellectual abilities, but also his sperm production. Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and many other toxic gases, which are inherent in air pollution and which do not cause symptoms of poisoning below the limit value, also destroy it, have a drastic effect on the quality of sperm.

The deterioration in quality results in a significant increase in the chances of developing a miscarriage, preterm birth and genetic abnormalities, even if the baby conceives.

Laptops, phones and heavy metals

“Yes, we have long suspected, and we now know, that our electronic devices in our pockets and on our laps also affect fertility, their radiation precisely impairs the movement of sperm, causing an abnormal movement that makes it impossible to reach the ovum. The same detail is destroyed by heavy metals, including lead, cadmium or arsenic, which are present in surprisingly many cosmetics and foods.”Says Tünde Ratkó, a midwife and fertility specialist.


Smoking affects fertility from several angles, as it can be a hotbed of erectile dysfunction in the long run due to its astringent effect, but it also has no good effect on sperm production. We now also know that women smoke is a serious problem in early, undiscovered pregnancies, as it destroys germ cells. They also later provide fertility conditions, healthy eggs and sperm. Unfortunately, smoking in the early stages of pregnancy can also cause a 50% deterioration in sperm production in boys, which will persist throughout their lives.

Unfortunately, environmental damage cannot be avoided, and we also see that nutrient replenishment – which can be the only shield against destruction – is not well addressed by nutrition, as we still import a lot of toxins. In addition to a balanced diet and regular exercise, it is also worth supporting fertility with a male vitamin. Adequate nutrient replenishment in many cases protects against environmental damage and improves fertility.

But what does it mean to have a proper replacement? It is not enough just to bring in the substances, they also need to be taken care of. To do this, we are looking for a composition that is, on the one hand, complex, since the individual substances help the utilization of others, and, on the other hand, the substances contained in it should preferably be organically bound. This practically means citrate and gluconate binding forms, with which the absorption rate is improved by up to 80%!
