Whether battling a fertility health issue or wanting to prepare for conception to ensure your healthiest DNA are being passed on to your children, both women and men can have a huge impact on their fertility health through their diet, by using herbs, promoting healthy circulation with natural therapies and by avoiding exposure to harmful toxins.
Male fertility and sperm health are 50% of any couple’s fertility equation. Sperm production is about a 2 ½ – 3 month cycle, so what a man eats and exposes (or doesn’t expose) himself to will impact the health of sperm being produced within this timeframe. This includes herbs.
Herbs support the healthy function of the body systems and as a result help the body maintain the production of hormones, healthy weight, energy and stress levels, libido, its ability to fight off pathogens, and so much more. What needs to be stressed is this: in order for herbs to work to the best of their ability for the body, there needs to a healthy foundation in place. One can build that foundation by eating a clean whole food diet, actively managing stress, supporting gentle detoxification and liver health, and by being physically active each day.
Three Main Male Fertility Herbs
1. Maca (Lepidium meyenii) – Maca is a nourishing fertility superfood known for its ability to support the health of the hypothalamus, which then regulates the pituitary gland for healthy hormonal balance, all without containing hormones itself. It’s used by men and women to boost energy levels and support a healthy libido, to enhance immune function, thyroid health and to support a healthy stress response.
We explain these uses/benefits in detail in our guide 10 Ways Maca Can Improve Your Fertility.
2. Tribulus (Tribulus terrestris) – Tribulus is a tonic herb known to revitalize the reproductive system to benefit sperm health (including count, motility and morphology,) and to help increase circulation to the male reproductive system. Tribulus also works as a sexual tonic/aphrodisiac and plays a role in reducing anti-sperm antibodies.
Our guide, Tribulus Terrestris: Fertility Herb for Both Men and Women…, shares much more.
3. American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) – The perfect male tonic! American Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb that can be used long term for healthy nervous, reproductive and immune system function, hormonal balance and to reduce stress (in turn boosting energy levels and libido).

So, where to start?
Again, we’d like to stress that it’s important to know that you do not have to have a fertility health issue to prepare for conception. Many men (women too) desire to be as healthy as possible prior to conception, or may not want to conceive at all, simply want to be maintain sexual energy and fertility health in order to feel strong and well. No matter the goal, an example natural fertility program for men could look like this:
Month 1: Male Fertility Cleanse – a foundational step for hormonal balance and healthy liver function
Month 2 & 3 (and beyond): Male Factor Formula Kit – herbs and nutritional supplements to support sperm health and quality, hormonal balance, energy and libido
Remember: Include dietary changes, stress management and daily exercise in your program and you’ll be on your way to optimal fertility health!
