We know that nutritional needs evolve as we move through different life stages. Young babies thrive when given calcium to support strong bones and teeth, exposure to the probiotics that help their tiny gut to flourish, and healthy fats to fuel their beautiful brain as they grow at lightning speed. Growing kids need plentiful access to fruits, veggies, and whole grains for the energy required to put on several inches of height each year while also climbing every tree in sight. Pregnant women need quality protein to support their new baby’s organ growth and sufficient folate to guard against neural tube defects.
You’re so ready to be a dad. It’s time to switch your old multivitamin for the specialized nutritional support of a quality prenatal vitamin for men.
The Precise Balance of Vitamins and Nutrients You Need to Conceive
You know how the amount of weight you’re able to squat changes based on your training and nutrition over the past few months? The same basic idea applies to your body’s ability to produce healthy sperm. Once you’ve decided to become a dad, it’s time to think about nutrition that optimizes your fertility. Male prenatal nutrition is all about supporting your body’s ability to produce superstar sperm.
Proper prenatal nutrition for men, including supplementation with a bioavailable form of folate, has been shown to be associated with higher-quality sperm with fewer DNA abnormalities. It takes two-and-a-half months, on average, for your sperm to mature. Start taking a high-quality men’s prenatal vitamin today to prepare for the best possible experience of conception and fatherhood.
Nutritional Support to Help Overcome Male-Factor Infertility
Not every journey to fatherhood follows a straightforward path. Lots of things can get in the way of optimal male fertility: health problems like poor diet, diabetes and high blood pressure, interference from medications you take, and even normal aging can affect your sperm quality.
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 the reason the Beli Men Vitality men’s prenatal vitamin includes antioxidant powerhouses to get you closer to your goal of successful conception.
Your regular old men’s multivitamin can’t match the potency of Beli’s high-quality male prenatal containing 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)
Your loving involvement in your partner’s pregnancy and in caring for your newborn is bound to be a life-changing experience, and it’s one that registers biologically for dads as a measurable hormonal shift.
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 men’s prenatal vitamin contains the carefully calibrated blend of vitamins and nutrients you need to support hormonal balance during your biological transition to fatherhood—Vitamins B6, B12, Folate, C, D, and E; Zinc and Selenium as amino acid chelate; amino acids L-carnitine and L-arginine; glutathione precursor N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine; the antioxidant CoQ10; and the powerhouse adaptogen Shilajit. Vitality is a plant-based vegan supplement with no GMO ingredients.
By continuing to nourish your nutritional needs throughout your partner’s pregnancy and during those sweet, exhausting newborn days, you make sure you have extra sustaining energy to play peekaboo. And maybe change a dirty diaper or two (hundred)!
