1. Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is known to improve sperm count and quality by protecting sperm cells from damaging free radicals that might affect your conception.

2. Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a very useful antioxidant that protects your sperm cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is considered to be a vital vitamin in providing you with more stamina and energy to indulge in your intercourse encounters, vitamin B12 also helps to increase your fertility.

4. L-Arginine: An amino acid, L-Arginine changes into nitric oxide that causes the blood vessels to relax.

5. Zinc: Zinc is the most powerful of all minerals, as far as the sexual health is concerned. Lack of zinc mineral has been found to cause lower levels of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Zinc vitamins also increase semen volume and zinc is one of the vital minerals necessary for the good health of the prostate gland, which releases various nutrients into the semen of men when they reach an orgasm.
