3 Reasons to Swap the Multivitamin for a Men’s Prenatal

If you hear “prenatal vitamins” and think “moms-to-be,” you aren’t alone. But for couples trying to conceive, it’s just as important that men do what they can to optimize their fertility. In addition to exercise, a good diet, and cutting back on alcohol, the specialized nutritional support of a quality prenatal vitamin for men can go a long way. Here are three reasons to swap the multivitamin for a men’s prenatal.

The Precise Balance of Vitamins and Nutrients You Need to Conceive

Let’s say you’ve been hitting the gym hard over the last few months, and you’ve been just as committed to eating a lean, varied diet and getting plenty of quality sleep. Odds are good that your performance in the gym has improved based on all of your efforts. The same idea applies to your body’s ability to produce healthy sperm. The right conditions can optimize your fertility. In this case, that means focusing on the kind of prenatal nutrition that supports your body’s ability to produce superstar sperm.

Proper prenatal nutrition for men, including supplementation with a bioavailable form of folate, is associated with higher-quality sperm and fewer DNA abnormalities. And it’s easy! Switching from a men’s multivitamin to a men’s daily prenatal is a quick, non-invasive way to optimize your sperm. Keep in mind that on average, it takes sperm roughly ten weeks to fully mature. Taking a quality men’s prenatal vitamin today is the best way to begin preparing for conception and fatherhood in the future.

Nutritional Support to Help Overcome Male-Factor Infertility

Not every journey to fatherhood is a straight line. There are all kinds of hurdles that affect sperm quality and get in the way of optimal male fertility, including:

  • Problematic habits like smoking, excessive alcohol use, and poor diet
  • Health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure
  • Interference from medications
  • Normal aging

Fertility challenges can hang like a dark cloud over your plans for parenthood. But if you look closer, you’ll see a massive silver lining. With the right approach to prenatal nutrition, you can take steps to improve your reproductive health.

Whether your goal is to raise your sperm count, boost your sperm motility — their swimming power — or increase successful fusion with the egg, look to a male prenatal vitamin that supplies the key vitamins and nutrients involved in sperm production.

Beli’s proprietary Vitality blendTM men’s vitamin contains all these essentials, plus a powerhouse adaptogen called Shilajit. Shilajit has long been prized in Ayurvedic medicine for its spermatogenic support, and recent studies have confirmed its ability to help improve sperm quality and overall fertility potential of men.

An authoritative review of research about male infertility has revealed that oxidative stress is majorly correlated with poor sperm production in men. The same review of studies found overwhelming evidence in favor of taking a potent combination of antioxidants orally to reduce signs of oxidative stress. That’s exactly why the Beli Men Vitality men’s prenatal vitamin includes antioxidant powerhouses.

Your regular old mens multivitamin cant match the potency of Belis high-quality male prenatal, which is carefully formulated with the precise mix of vitamins and nutrients you need to improve your sperm in every measurable dimension.

Bolster Your Vitality for the Birth of Your Baby (and Beyond)

It’s now settled science that most new dads experience a decline in testosterone during pregnancy and birth. Scientists have hypothesized that this decline paves the way for an increase in oxytocin—the hormone of love and connection. And that’s a beautiful change, because it supports you in being the present partner and father you’ve always dreamed you’d be.

But declines in testosterone can also have a negative impact on your mood and energy levels. Swings in testosterone levels after the birth of a child are associated with reduced sex drive, a lack of emotional resilience in the face of stress, and even paternal postpartum depression. The good news? The same balance of vitamins and nutrients that supported your healthy sperm production will continue to naturally balance your testosterone levels.

The Beli Men Vitality mens prenatal vitamin is a plant-based, vegan supplement made without GMO ingredient. It contains the carefully calibrated blend of vitamins and nutrients you need to support hormonal balance during your biological transition to fatherhood:

  • Vitamins B6, B12, C, D, and E
  • Folate
  • Zinc and selenium as amino acid chelate;
  • Amino acids L-carnitine and L-arginine
  • Glutathione precursor N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine
  • The antioxidant CoQ10
  • The powerhouse adaptogen Shilajit

Nourishing your nutritional needs throughout your partner’s pregnancy and during those whirlwind newborn days can give you the sustaining energy you need to enjoy every (exhausting and exhilarating) moment.

Takeaway

You’re so ready to be a dad — now’s the time to switch your old multivitamin to the specialized nutritional support of a men’s prenatal. Remember, healthy pregnancies start with healthy sperm, and healthy sperm begins with proper nutrition. A quality men’s prenatal is one of the best ways to get started.
