Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Help with Male Infertility

A new study from U.S. researchers shows omega-3 fatty acids may be able to help treat male infertility.

Researchers at the University of Illinois looked at how omega-3 affected mice who were infertile due to a missing gene. The mice were missing an enzyme called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and researchers found when DHA was given to the mice through their diet, fertility was completely restored.

Where before the sperm were round instead of elongated and were unable to move well, after DHA was made part of the diet, those abnormalities were fixed.

DHA is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid and is considered critical for the best development of the central nervous system, heart and eyes. DHA is found in seafood, especially oily, cold-water fish such as salmon, herring, sardines and anchovies. It can also be found in enriched eggs, milk and yogurt.
