Greetings,

I've led an extremely unhealthy life and I'm now at 32 and striving to reach optimum health. I feel that my (future) children are my greatest hope and therefore want to give them all that I can. I was reading through the protocols and couldn't find one to ensure optimal sperm quality.

Is ensuring the genetic quality of future humans not important to the foundation? I would think it would be... We might get extremely lucky and have a chance at living to two hundred, but I think our greatest hope is the generation of children being born today. If I can teach and discipline my children to practice healthy habits then they'll start off better than I did (my mother wrote she fed me a Taco Bell Burrito Supreme for my 2 years old birthday in my baby book).

I've read being under 36, not smoking or drinking cola, taking folic acid and B vitamins, climaxing for a week, and so on is helpful to increase the probability of high quality semen. However, an in depth guide by a source I can trust (LEF) would be ideal.

If my future children start out with inferior or damaged DNA compared to my own then I'm not doing the world any favors no matter how well I teach or raise them. (I plan on making it my lifes main focus)

Thank you.

Thank you for the suggestion.  Life Extension does have a DNA Protection Formula.  See http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Item01570/DNA-Protection-Formula.html

You might look into IP6...  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11030616

Binding of inositol phosphate to DNA-PK and stimulation of double-strand break repair



Abstract

In mammalian cells, double-strand breaks in DNA can be repaired by nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ), a process dependent upon Ku70/80, DNA-PKcs, XRCC4, and DNA ligase IV. Starting with HeLa cell-free extracts, which promote NHEJ in a reaction dependent upon all of these proteins, we have purified a novel factor that stimulates DNA end-joining in vitro. Using a combination of phosphorus NMR, mass spectroscopy, and strong anion exchange chromatography, we identify this factor as inositol hexakisphosphate (IP6). Purified IP6 is bound by DNA-PK and specifically stimulates DNA-PK-dependent end-joining in vitro. The involvement of inositol phosphate in DNA-PK-dependent NHEJ is of particular interest since the catalytic domain of DNA-PKcs is similar to that found in the phosphatidylinositol 3 (PI 3)-kinase family.

Research any journal articles behind the ingredients in this supplement which is specifically made to increase male fertility. I can't comment on whether it works or not.
