The role of oxidative stress in male fertility has received a great deal of attention recently, and rightly so - oxidative stress leads to decreased sperm count and motility, and causes damage to sperm DNA. The comprehensive antioxidant formula in FH PRO™ for Men reflects the latest research in this area, and is designed to reduce the deleterious effects of oxidative stress on male reproductive health.
Consisting of a proven array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, FH PRO™ for Men is the most complete male fertility supplement on the market. FH PRO™ is designed to improve all major sperm parameters - count, concentration, motility, morphology, and DNA integrity.
FH PRO™ for Men is intended to complement Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), including IVF, IUI, and other fertility treatments. However, it can be used by all men who are actively trying-to-conceive. Let your fertility specialist know that you want to improve your chances of conception with FH PRO™ for Men!
Oxidative stress is a leading cause of male infertility. Oxidative stress occurs when there is a physiological imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS), also known as free radicals, and the body's ability to neutralize these damaging compounds. Sperm cells are uniquely sensitive to ROS damage. The cell membrane contains high amounts of fats that are easily damaged, and sperm have less effective antioxidant mechanisms to keep free radicals at bay. Oxidative stress causes sperm damage that impacts the ability of the sperm to reach and fertilize the egg, and the health of the genetic material they bring to the egg.
The good news is that oral antioxidant supplementation is an effective, clinically supported way to promote sperm health. FH PRO™ was designed to provide broad-spectrum antioxidant support. It contains effective dosages of more than 10 different nutrients that participate in antioxidant systems, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, QuatrefolicTM, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, l-carnitine, grape seed extract, coQ10, lycopene, and n-acetyl-cysteine.
Research indicates that a man's diet impacts his overall fertility, as well as the health of his offspring. Over the past several decades, the nutritional quality of the typical American diet has declined. Current diets contain more total calories, meat, cheese, added fats, refined grains, and added sugars, which reflects a poorer diet quality. Taking a good vitamin and mineral supplement can help improve your nutritional status, which is good for your general health, your fertility, and the health of your offspring. FH PRO™ for Men includes more than 25 ingredients, which is more than double the number of ingredients as other available male fertility supplements.
FH PRO™ was formulated to include all of the B vitamins - not just B12 and folate like some competing products. The B vitamins are often referred to as a "complex" - these vitamins work together to support energy production and cell division, and should be supplemented together.
FH PRO™ also includes appropriate amounts of trace minerals, which are essential to the body as cofactors: iodine deficiency is becoming more common, and is needed for the production of thyroid hormones; copper participates as an electron donor in biological reactions; manganese is essential for enzymes that protect the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cell) from free radicals; chromium helps regulate sugar metabolism by working insulin; and molybdenum is essential for virtually all life forms and helps convert sulfur into a useable form in the body.
Fairhaven Health has been a leading provider of dietary supplements to enhance fertility naturally since the early 2000s, and has an established reputation for providing quality and effective products. When formulating FH PRO™, we spared no expense in ensuring we included the best forms of ingredients. For example, we provide Vitamin E as d-alpha-tocopheryl succinate and mixed tocopherols - the most natural form of supplement Vitamin E. Similarly, we have included active forms of B Vitamins: Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin; Vitamin B5 as d-calcium pantothenate; riboflavin as riboflavin 5 phosphate; and thiamin as thiamin HCl and benfotiamine (a lipid-soluble, source of thiamin).
FH PRO™ also includes folate as QuatrefolicTM, a patented form of vitamin B9. Due to the important role that folic acid plays in male reproductive health, further explanation about this crucial vitamin is warranted. The words folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably to describe the vitamin known as vitamin B9. Folate is the form of this vitamin that naturally occurs in foods - dark green leafy vegetables are good sources of naturally occurring folate. Folic acid is the synthetic form of Vitamin B9 that is found in fortified foods and most dietary supplements. Although the research in this area is still emerging, many experts believe that folic acid is not sufficiently metabolized by some people. To help ensure optimal utilization of the folate in this product, FH PRO features QuatrefolicTM, a form of folate that is more bioavailable than synthetic folic acid.
Unlike some of the other male fertility supplements, FH PRO™ has no ingredients hidden in proprietary blends. We offer full transparency, so both you and your doctor know exactly what you are taking. FH PRO™ is gluten and dairy-free, and contains no artificial colours or preservatives.
FH PRO™ for Men has been clinically tested with exciting, groundbreaking results. In a prospective clinical trial, 148 infertile men were treated with FH PRO™ for Men for three months, which resulted in a significant reduction in sperm DNA fragmentation and seminal oxidative stress, and significant improvement in sperm count, progressive motility and morphology in infertile men.

Producing healthy sperm in the right amounts requires that the body have all the ‘raw materials’ it needs and as little as possible of the oxidative stress it doesn’t need. FH PRO™ for Men is a premium, patented and clinically proven fertility supplement designed to promote male fertility by increasing overall nutritional status, decreasing oxidative stress, and improving sperm function. With over 25 ingredients and broad-spectrum antioxidant support, along with a full multivitamin, FH PRO™ for Men offers the most comprehensive nutritional support for male fertility available, with immune-supporting ingredients such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Zinc to help you stay healthy while you are trying to conceive.
Sperm cells, and the DNA they carry, are uniquely sensitive to free radical damage. The cell membrane contains high amounts of fats that are easily damaged, and sperm do not have antioxidant mechanisms to keep free radicals at bay. Oxidative stress affects the health and integrity of the DNA that sperm brings to the egg. FH PRO™ provides the best antioxidants to fight free radicals including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium, Grape Seed Extract, CoQ10, Lycopene, & N-Acetyl-Cysteine and more.
The malefactor has been shown to be the underlying cause of infertility in 45% of couples who have difficulty getting pregnant. When you know the whole story of sperm, it becomes fairly easy to spot the ways that the malefactor can become an issue. Unlike a woman who is born with all the eggs she will ever have, a man must constantly produce new sperm. In a healthy male, sperm are produced continually at a rate of roughly 100 million sperm per day and each sperm takes about 42 to 76 days of temps 2 degrees cooler than the body (hence the testicles hanging outside) to mature into a streamlined profile of sperm cells. Sperm production numbers are big because they have to be – a single ejaculation may contain up to 150 million sperm but only roughly 15% of those will be perfectly normal sperm that can penetrate an egg. We can see how male fertility is, in part, a numbers game – the more sperm, the better the chances. FH PRO™ for Men has been clinically demonstrated to increase sperm count by 38%.
How do you know if your sperm count is sufficient? A comprehensive semen analysis will give you a good indication of your overall sperm health, including sperm count and motility.
But there is more to the sperm story. Motility and morphology are also key factors besides count – that is, sperm have to swim straight and fast and be of the right shape in order to reach and penetrate the egg. From the time the sperm is ejaculated to when the egg is fertilized, sperm will first have to swim through the cervical mucus and cervix, and then swim up the fallopian tubes. Considering that the size of a sperm is roughly 0.002 inches long (not visible by the naked eye), this would be about the same as going from Hawaii to L.A. (or at least it feels that way to the sperm!). The fastest of the sperm will take about 45 minutes and the slowest need around 12 hours to reach the egg. Most sperm never make it. They either run out of energy, go in the wrong direction, or chase their tails in circles. Some sperm have been killed off by natural antibodies or hostile cervical fluids. In the end, it’s just a few, fine-figured sperm that find their way to the egg and hope to become the lucky one. FH PRO™ for Men has been clinically shown to increase progressive motility by 102% and morphology by 39%.
The final piece of the sperm story is sometimes overlooked but perhaps the most important. The head of each sperm contains 23 chromosomes to merge with an egg’s 23 chromosomes and begin a new life. This set of chromosomes becomes the basis for your child’s health. Chromosomes participate in an array of essential tasks all throughout life starting with growth, development, and function of the body’s systems. Structural changes to chromosomes can occur during the formation of sperm cells. Pieces of DNA can be rearranged within one chromosome or transferred between two or more chromosomes. Some changes can cause medical problems for your baby and/or can impact brain development and IQ. Any trying-to-conceive couple should set their goal to not only achieve pregnancy but do so with the highest level of DNA integrity in the chromosomes as possible. FH PRO for Men reduced DNA fragmentation by 17% in a recent clinical study.
All men – regardless of their count or motility – can derive benefit from supplementing with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants that have been demonstrated to improve sperm parameters. Your sperm parameters may already be categorized in the normal health range, but with depleted soils and environmental factors, it’s safe to say that your sperm health can always be further optimized, and that may increase your chances of conceiving plus result in a healthier baby.
The nutritional benefits of FH PRO™ for Men may be experienced immediately as a result of comprehensive multivitamin, mineral, and antioxidant intake. Take daily as per instructions (benefits may be mitigated by sporadic use). Remember to take into account the amount of time needed for the development and maturation of sperm: it can take over two months for sperm to mature and to become capable of fertilizing an egg.
No, while FH PRO™ for Men is a clinical grade dietary supplement and sold in fertility specialists’ clinics as part of a specific fertility protocol, any trying to conceive couple can use the supplement to optimize their reproductive health.
For best results, begin taking FH PRO™ 3-6 months before trying to conceive naturally or via assisted reproductive technologies (ART). FH PRO is designed to be taken the entire time you are actively trying-to-conceive. Sperm can take over two months to develop and mature before it is ready to be ejaculated so it is important to start supplementation well ahead of desired pregnancy.
