Are vitamin E supplements necessary to improve fertility?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 11/08/2021

Vitamin E supplementation could improve fertility due to its antioxidant effect, as it would protect eggs and sperm from damage caused by oxidative stress. However, human studies do not provide conclusive results about the benefits of taking vitamin E supplements for male and female fertility.

Nevertheless, it is important to have adequate levels of vitamin E in the body. To do this, we must provide this vitamin through the diet with the intake of foods such as seeds and nuts, eggs and green leafy vegetables.
