Inflammation is an essential process in tissue repair and immune protection. Inflammation, and the resolution of inflammation, is usually a tightly regulated process but higher than normal levels are related to infertility. Check out our infographic below on inflammation and sperm health.
What Causes Inflammation?
The cause of higher than normal levels of inflammation are multifactorial. These include a diet missing key micronutrients, carrying excess body fat, hormone imbalances, infections, stress and being sedentary. There is also a link between your gut health and inflammation.

Proven strategies to improve sperm health include eating a healthy diet and getting the right amount of exercise. Do you know your intake of key antioxidants for healthy sperm production?
