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

Vitamin E is undoubtedly related to reproduction, as it was found to be an essential factor for reproduction in rats.

In addition, vitamin E is a potent antioxidant, so it can reduce the damage caused by oxidative stress in the body. This is why vitamin E supplementation could have a beneficial effect since oxidative stress can affect fertility by damaging eggs and sperm. However, there are no conclusive results in this regard.
