Micronutrient combination may boost male fertility

A combination of eight micronutrients may boost sperm quality and enhance the chance of conception, suggests new
data from Austria.A study with 132 sub-fertile males showed that three months of supplementation with the nutraceutical
combination resulted in improvements in measures of sperm quality by up to 215%.–The micronutrient
combination was also associated with higher rates of conception, with 34 pregnancies reported
during the six months that followed the study, compared with 11 in the control group, according to
findings published in the European e-Journal of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism—The Austria-based
researchers used the branded PROfertil supplement, containing L-carnitine, L-arginine, zinc, vitamin
E, glutathione, selenium, coenzyme Q10 and folic acid, all of which are said to be required for
“optimal sperm cell metabolism, DNA synthesis during spermatogenesis, proliferation and anti-oxidative
protection. –In consideration of their biochemical function, these ingredients are of great significance for male
reproduction wrote researchers led by Martin Imhof from the Fertility Clinic IMI in Vienna. Nutrients and
fertility Sub-fertility in men is reported to account for between 25 and 30% of all infertility causes, and is
listed as one of the many reasons that birth rates are falling in Western countries. [U19]In addition, about
50% of male fertility is the result of unknown causes (idiopathic), said the Austria-based researchers, and
nutrition has been touted as a potential way of boosting the quality of sperm. —[U20]The new study
assessed the potential of a non-prescription nutraceutical containing eight micronutrients on sperm quality
in 132 sub-fertile males with a mean age of 34, while 73 sub-fertile men with a mean age of 38 participated
as controls.–The nutraceutical group received supplements providing total daily doses of 440 mg
L-carnitine, 250 mg L-arginine, 40 mg zinc, 120 mg vitamin E, 80 mg glutathione, 60
micrograms of selenium, 15 mg coenzyme Q10, and 800 micrograms of folic acid. The
supplement was provided by Vienna-based Lenus Pharma GmbH. Results showed that men receiving
the active supplement displayed a 33% improvement in ejaculatory volume, a 215% improvement
in sperm cell density, and a 23% improvement in total sperm motility.[U21]These increments
were significantly higher than those observed among controls, added Imhof and his co-workers. Limitations
and potential We recognize the non randomized placebo controlled design of our study as a limitation said the
researchers. However, a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study is currently on the way to support
these preliminary results. Despite mentioned limitations and in light of the fact that therapies for sub-fertile men
are still missing, the investigated compound is a promising therapeutic approach, improving sperm parameters
and enabling natural conception for couples with idiopathic male infertility they concluded. Source: the European

Fertility and what to do to increase it—If you want to!!

Wheatgerm oil—has been utilized since the 1920’s to increase pregnancies in bot women and animals to increase births—it increase both the fertility of men and women –Apply 1-2 tablespoon daily

Vitamin E from non soy sources—olive –rice-palm-wheat-almond oil—increases fertility in both men and women—400-800mgs a day or 1 tablespoon of the oils mentioned

Acetly L Carnitine —2 grams a day increases Sperm Count

Arginine -2-3 grams a day also increase sperm count as well for both genders increases Nitric oxide to the genital area

Selenium- a must for the males—every load ejaculated releases the selenium to protect the seed as it travels—It protects the sac from cancer 200mcg 2 times a day

Zinc –to sustain insulin and protect prostate 30 mgs 2 times a day

Male Combo for the reproductive is Zinc 30 mgs Selenium 200 mcg and Vitamin E-400IU

Fats are required for both genders to increase hormonal health and a healthy reproductive system

Another Combination For Men and Women is

B5-adrenal support-Choline –Connection support-and Arginine Heart Support—when combined they have a synergy to turn the switch on and can help sustain the the activities as well

Consuming foods such as walnuts- peanuts-almonds-sunflower seeds-pumpkin seed will increase the Male reproductive system—

Things to Avoid—Soy—Peas—Xenoestrogens-Canola-GMO Corn—Chemicals in general



[U1]ABOUT &^%$# TIME!!! Now we need to get them out of Canada and the USA as well and while we are at it out of the planet

[U2]This really really really really is a disappointment—in plain English Blows—Why Would Raleigh allow BASF a foothold in the USA to further Poison America and Canada??
[U3]Not Sure this is Acceptable—Maybe we should boycott this—Send this to everyone in North America –I don’t want them in Canada—and I am sure a lot like myself are not wanting them here either or in the USA for that Matter–
[U4]I hate to say this the Euorpeans are a lot smarter then we are—they are getting rid of there poison we are going to allow it here —I am so excited—
[U5]What a crock –what this is really saying is Loss Profits to rape developing countries and poison them with noxious foods
[U6]Food Security??? With GE or GMO’s!? now they will at the least see the benefit of there health cost go down—this is why the EU is being hit economically
[U7]123 slaves to develop poisons to kill off people—lets call it what it is—BS
[U8]Makes sense the Soy in the diet over a period of time has increased this type of cancer as well as Canola oil and other processes and not to mention the fact Canada is a leading developer of GMO foods which would contribute to this dilemma we all Face in Canada as well as other parts of the Planet
[U9]None Of these Statistics would give these kind of number –None of them –this is a misdirecting of facts—on something of this scale it would have to be more to a common thread—foods Poisoning –and environmental exposure to solvent or chemicals or emf which would cause this
[U10]Again this could be tied to Soy and Pesticide exposure—Not to mention Vaccinations which would in fact destroy both liver and thyroid
[U11]Smoke and Mirrors–
[U12]Under Regulated –or Over cautious—theDSHEA allows and provides all the regs that are needed—what is transpiring here is a retalitary effect from the FDA to use White Coats to force Peer pressure to change the 2 officials from gov’t
[U13]ALLLLL HS!! This is about the FDA getting there fingers rapped—They had over stepped there power—and were told that they did not need more power –they had enough todo what was needed—this is about White Coats denying access to supplements
[U14]OH OH we are now going to scare you into a lulled sense of security making you think that supplements are dangerious—OOOooOO the boogey man is going to get you Now!!! No ONE has ever Died from a vitamin –No One—Butttt People die from drugs and the number one killer is aspirin—and why are you not hearing this from so called campaigner for health??
[U15]Regulation = Denied Access—and what they –the white coats working for the FDA want to do is Undermine your right to health by making you more dependent on Pharmaceuticals that shut down your brain—your spirit and your soul
[U16]The FDA shut down it’s Labs years ago just like HPB in Canada did allowing the industry to test—this used to be a secondary line of defence—the problem was it was to easily corrupted by the very corporations handing in those samples so they bought out the branches of Gov’t and now conduct there own in house test—any one can fabricate anything—and todays vitamins by mainstream drug companies are the worse ones with the most additives and poisons
[U17]Again this is such Rubbish and BS—the Health fod industry is more regulated then the Pharmaceutical industry HUGELY—and as has been reported No one has ever died from taking supplements—but many have died from pharmaceuticals and in fact a lot of them are poisonous and have all these analysis’s done and still people are getting rooked—-so the answer really is stop buy foreign raw materials and start getting raw materials locally—will never happen due to cost and money lost with hyper inflating things made at home
[U18]Aren’t Pharmaseuticals Consumer Products??? And yet where is the outcry here!!—this is an elaborate art of persuasion to get people afraid of there supplements
[U19]Birth rates are falling due to lack of semen from fluoride-soy-pesticides and xenoestrogens in everyday exposure and including biowarfare being done on the human race—with different waves of infection
[U20]Shutting down the endocrine system and not feeding people what is required to sustain a health reproductive system would be more the case
[U21]Arginine and acetyl L Carnitine is what they give guys who are porn stars to increase flow—it does work when trying to get pregnant add selenium with this —males lose there selenium when having intercourse due to the ejaculation so it is good to supplemet to protect the sac

Environmental Exposure to Organochlorines May Impact Male Reproduction

Pesticide Metabolites Associated With Increased Risk Of Testicular Cancers

The Bitter Truth About Splenda

‘If you were told to ingest a biologically alien synthetic chemical whose presence on this planet did not predate 1976, and whose structure is only a few atoms away from the deadly pesticide DDT, and you knew that not only were there no long term human safety studies performed on it, but that it had been already proven in tests to have following adverse health effects would you still consume it?’

· Shrunken thymus glands (up to 40% shrinkage)

· Enlarged liver and kidneys.

· Abnormal histopathological changes in spleen and thymus

· Increased cecal weight

· Reduced growth rate

· DNA Damage

· Adverse changes to gastrointestinal bacteria

· Abnormal Pelvic Mineralization

· Decreased red blood cell count

· Hyperplasia of the pelvis

· Aborted pregnancy (Maternal & Fetal Toxicity)

· Decreased fetal body weights and placental weights

· Bowel inflammation

· Triggering migraine

· Increase glycosylation of hemoglobin (HbA1c) for diabetics

….would you still consume it? Of course not! And yet, millions of Americans (including our precious children!) are doing exactly that by consuming Splenda. So, what is sucralose, chemically speaking?

Like “Splenda,” the term “sucralose” is a cute little marketing ploy. The true name of this ugly little chemical is actually too long for the human tongue to comfortably pronounce (which is usually an excellent indication that it is not safe to ingest!) Go ahead and see if you can wrap your vocal chords around this phonetic monstrosity:

Despite the intended insinuation, sucralose is not a form of sucrose (cane sugar). Sucralose/Splenda is produced through artificially substituting three hydroxyl groups (hydrogen + oxygen) with three chlorine atoms in the sugar (sucrose) molecule. Natural sugar is a hydrocarbon built around 12 carbon atoms.

When transformed into Splenda it becomes a chlorocarbon, in the same family as deadly pesticides like DDT, insecticides, biocides, disinfectants like Chlorox Bleach, and WWI poison gas like dichlorourea.

The makers of sucralose/Splenda argue that this “remarkably stable” chemical passes unchanged into the urine and feces, when in fact, up to 11% to 27% is absorbed into the body (FDA, 1999). In fact, the varying degrees to which sucralose is absorbed is used as a marker for gut and intestinal permeability to determine certain disease states. Once absorbed, some portion of this chlorocarbon accumulates in the body (between 1.6% to 12.2%). What effects will these accumulated chemicals have?

According to James Bowen, M.D:

“Any chlorocarbons not directly excreted from the body intact can cause immense damage to the processes of human metabolism and, eventually, our internal organs. The liver is a detoxification organ which deals with ingested poisons. Chlorocarbons damage the hepatocytes, the liver’s metabolic cells, and destroy them. In test animals Splenda produced swollen livers, as do all chlorocarbon poisons, and also calcified the kidneys of test animals in toxicity studies.”

How can this be true for an FDA approved sweetener?

FDA approval does not in any way guarantee safety…..sadly enough, in many cases, it guarantees the exact opposite. Take aspartame for instance. Aspartame (Equal/NutraSweet) contains 10% methanol, which is broken down in our body into two extremely toxic substances: formaldehyde and formic acid. There are over 30 known adverse health effects associated with its consumption! This sweetener gained FDA approval in 1981, despite appalling evidence linking it to cancer, particularly, brain cancer.

So, if Splenda is not a viable alternative to sugar, what can we use instead?

When one uncouples the experience of “sweetness” from caloric content, the body becomes confused because it does not receive nourishment and therefore will not attain satiety – this, in turn, leads to overindulgence. Indeed, new studies have shown exactly this: those who consume synthetic sweeteners are more prone to obesity. What this means is that when we ingest something sweet, it should also have caloric and nutritional content. Anything less than this equation is a recipe for failure and ill health.

Thankfully Nature provides us with a veritable cornucopia of healthy sweeteners: honey, stevia, xylitol, erythritol , maple syrup or sugar, coconut nectar or sweetner , malitol, and birch tree syrup all of which are available at a local health food store or ethnic market. Next time that sweet tooth calls, remember not to succumb to advertising hype which would convert poisonous chemicals into “magical” no-calorie sweeteners. Use both common sense and a sense of moderation, and your body will thank you.


High Levels of MRSA Bacteria in U.S. Retail Meat Products, Study Suggests

ScienceDaily (Jan. 20, 2012) — Retail pork products in the U.S. have a [U1]higher prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (MRSA) than previously identified, according to new research by the University of Iowa College of Public Health and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.–MRSA can occur in the environment and in raw meat products, and is estimated to cause around 185,000 cases of food poisoning each year. The bacteria can also cause serious, life-threatening infections of the bloodstream, skin, lungs and other organs. MRSA is resistant to a number of antibiotics.—The study, published Jan. 19 in the online science journal PLoS ONE, represents the largest sampling of raw meat products for MRSA contamination to date in the U.S. The researchers collected 395 raw pork samples from 36 stores in Iowa, Minnesota and New Jersey. Of these samples, 26 — or about 7 percent — carried MRSA.—“This study shows that the meat we buy in our grocery stores has a higher prevalence of staph than we originally thought,” says lead study author Tara Smith, Ph.D., interim director of the UI Center for Emerging and Infectious Diseases and assistant professor of epidemiology. “With this knowledge, we can start to recommend safer ways to handle raw meat products to make it safer for the consumer.”

The study also found no significant difference in MRSA contamination between conventional pork products and those raised without antibiotics or antibiotic growth promotants.

“We were surprised to see no significant difference in antibiotic-free and conventionally produced pork,[U2]” Smith says. “Though it’s possible that this finding has more to do with the handling of the raw meat at the plant than the way the animals were raised, it’s certainly worth exploring further.”–Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by University of Iowa, via Newswise. –Journal Reference-Ashley M.

Environmental Exposure to Organochlorines May Impact Male Reproduction

ScienceDaily (Jan. 9, 2012) — Melissa Perry, Sc.D., M.H.S., professor and chair of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the GW School of Public Health and Health Services and adjunct associate professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, led an observational study indicating that environmental exposure to organochlorine chemicals, including Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and p,p’-DDE (the main metabolite of the insecticide DDT) can affect male reproduction.–The research was published online on Dec. 21, 2011 in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. —The researchers studied 192 men who were part of couples that were sub-fertile, to see if the men with higher levels of organochlorines in their blood showed evidence of increased rates of sperm abnormalities. They looked for sperm disomy, which occurs when sperm cells have an abnormal number of chromosomes. While all men have a certain number of sperm with such abnormalities, researchers found that men with higher levels of DDE and PCBs had significantly higher rates of sperm abnormalities.–“This research adds to the already existing body of evidence suggesting that environmental exposure to certain chemicals can affect male fertility and reproduction. We need to further understand the mechanisms through which these chemicals impact sperm,” said Dr. Perry. “While we cannot avoid chemicals that already persist in the environment, it is imperative that decisions about putting biologically active chemicals into the environment need to be made very carefully, because there can be unanticipated consequences down the road.”-The researchers used a new sperm imaging methodology developed by Dr. Perry and colleagues to detect the chromosomal abnormalities, which allowed them to study a larger sampling of individuals than previous studies.–Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by George Washington University Medical Center.


Pesticide Metabolites Associated With Increased Risk Of Testicular Cancers

ScienceDaily (Apr. 29, 2008) — Men exposed to organochlorine pesticide metabolites, such as DDE, had an increased risk of testicular germ cell tumors. Previous research suggested that persistent exposure to organochlorine pesticides may increase the risk for some types of testicular cancer, but that observation had not been replicated in an independent data set.—In the current case-control study, Katherine McGlynn, Ph.D., of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., and colleagues measured the amount of pesticides or their metabolic breakdown products in blood samples from men who were later diagnosed with testicular germ cell tumors and in blood samples from healthy controls. The men were all part of the U.S. Servicemen’s Testicular Tumor Environmental and Endocrine Determinants study. The 915 control subjects and 739 case subjects had donated blood samples an average of 14.2 years prior to the current analysis.–When the researchers divided the participants into quartiles based on the concentration of a particular pesticide in their blood, the team saw a trend for an increased risk of testicular cancer in men with higher concentrations. The trend reached statistical significance for some of the pesticides and metabolites tested. For example, men in the highest quartile for DDE (p,p’-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene)–which is a persistent metabolite of DDT (p,p’-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane)–were 1.7 times more likely to develop testicular germ cell tumors than those with the lowest concentration.—“If the relative risks calculated in this study are accurate, the population-attributable risk of DDE (i.e., the propor¬tion of disease in the study population that is attributable to DDE exposure) would be approximately 15 percent for all [testicular germ cell tumors],” the authors write.–This research was reported April 29 in the Journal of the National Cancer –Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Journal of the National Cancer Institute, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.


Nettle has protective activity of beta-cells of langerhans in hyperglycemic rats.The protective activity of Urtica dioica leaves on blood glucose concentration and beta-cells in streptozotocin-diabetic rats.

Pak J Biol Sci. 2007 Apr 15;10(8):1200-4

Authors: Golalipour MJ, Khori V

This study was done to determine the protective activity of the hydroalcholic extract of Urtica dioica leaves on Hyperglycemia and beta-cells in hyperglycemic rats. Thirty Wistar rats were allocated in groups of normal, Diabetic and treatment. Hyperglycemia in Rats induced by 80 mg kg(-1) streptozotocin. In treatment group, animals received hydroalcholic extract of Urtica dioica 100 mg kg(-1) day(-1) for five days, intraperitoneally and then hyperglycemia induced by streptozotocin. The blood glucose concentration was measured by using a Glucometer in 1st, 3rd and 5th weeks. In the end of 5th weeks the animals in each group were sacrificed by anesthesia and whole pancreas in three groups extracted and fixed in bouin’s fluid and stained by chromealum hematoxiline-phloxine and beta cells were counted in three groups by Olympus microscope. Mean +/- SE of blood glucose concentrations in the end of fifth weeks were 99.4 +/-5.0, 454.7 +/- 34.5 and 303.6 +/- 100.6 in control, diabetic and treatment groups, respectively (p < 0.05). The percentages of beta-cells in control, diabetic and treatment groups were 73.6, 1.9 and 22.9%, respectively. The percentage of beta-cells in treatment group comparing with diabetic group was significant (p < 0.05). This study showed that the protective administration of hydroalcholic extract of Urtica dioica has hypoglycemic effect and protective activity of beta-cells of langerhans in hyperglycemic rats.—PMID: 19069917 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

Recipe –add Nettle to a blender and distilled water to it and alcohol—measure this so that the water will be 50/50 with the alcohol—and add to blender and then add the nettle 1/3 rd the amount to the water/alcohol mix—blend this at high speed for about 10 minutes and strain —you will have made an extract—use a half a tsp as needed

Another means to do this is to add nettle with cinnamon bark and juniper berry—place all 3 components in a coffee percolator and then seal the containment area—and add distilled water to the pot—fill it to the mark and then allow it to perk on the stove for about 10 minutes or allow it to get about 1-2 inches from the bottom—pour out to a bottle and when it cools add alcohol to it 2:1 to the extract—use ½ tsp several times a day

These recipes have other uses as well not just for diabetic conditions but for a host of others as well ranging from anti bacterial-antifungal-antiviral-male issues-anti cancer issues-anti microbial issues-blood-organ –immune –antioxidant-and many more –something that can be gotten from the woods or from any open field –if gotten from out doors make sure you clean these with some kind of cleaning method to remove potential chemtrail and GMO fall out


[U1]This whole report should have everyone alarmed and cautious about where and what meat they buy—this would include kosher and Hal el as well –if the meat can get contaminated with MRSA which is something coming out of the medical field or clinical or pharmaceutical setting thennnnn we have a problem with somebody doing this purposely—they are trying to get us all to be livestock grazing on veges—the largest consumers of this tpe of foods are –Asians—are we in Biowarfare?

Something to think about
[U2]In other words the so called natural meats in a health food store may not have any significance
