Men are just as likely as women to have reproductive health issues that not only impact a couple’s ability to conceive, but their quality of life. Male sexual dysfunction is often at the top of many a men’s list of concerns and can impact men’s fertility. Low libido, erectile dysfunction (impotence) and premature ejaculation can each make conceiving a child more challenging than it should be. MH5 is an herbal reproductive tonic formulated specifically to support male reproductive health and fertility. MH5 combines the most important herbs for a variety of components of male fertility, including hormonal balance and sexual function.
Popular Herbs for Male Fertility
American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) – A traditional rejuvenation tonic for men, American ginseng nourishes and supports the nervous system, immune function, and proper hormonal balance. It may support healthy sex drive, erectile dysfunction and enhance sexual performance.
Tribulus (Tribulus terrestris) – Traditionally used in both traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, Tribulus supports normal sperm count, motility and morphology, improves erectile function, sexual function and libido. Tribulus is known to help increase luteinizing hormone (LH), DHEA and encourages normal testosterone production- all factors which influence sperm quality and health.
Maca root (Lepidium meyenii)– A tonic for the hormonal system, maca supports and nourishes the hypothalamus and thyroid, encouraging normal sperm health as well as sexual function/libido, increased energy, stamina, and mental clarity.
Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) – Nourishing to the entire endocrine system, saw palmetto supports overall reproductive function in men. Men with low sperm count, low libido, stress, who are irritable or experiencing anxiety, who have poor immune function, poor lifestyle and dietary habits have shown to benefit from this herb.
