ZINC AND MALE HEALTH:
Zinc is very important in relation to fertility in men. Zinc deficiency can lead to lower sperm count. This is because zinc is found in high concentrations in sperm.
Zinc is used in the production of the tail and the outer layer of the sperm.
Without zinc, the sperm will never mature to the stage that they will be able to fertilize an egg. If a man doesn’t get enough zinc, the quality and quantity of his sperm will be affected. Zinc deficiency can also cause chromosomal defects, so even if fertilization and implantation does occur, a miscarriage will usually happen.
A 2009 study published in “Nutrition Research” hypothesized that due to zinc’s important antioxidant role, a deficiency would increase oxidative damage and promote lower quality sperm. The study found that seminal zinc, in both fertile and infertile males, correlated significant with sperm count. The conclusion was that zinc deficiency is, in fact, a risk factor for low sperm quality and male infertility, for which there is no other apparent cause.
