A new research has revealed that antioxidants plays an important role in solving infertility issues both in men and women,including erectile dysfunction.
The lead author of the study Tory Hagen, in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University and Francesco Visioli, said that Infertility problem are the early indicators of other major diseases like high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and atherosclerosis.
Hagen said “If oxidation stress is an underlying factor causing infertility, which we think the evidence points to, we should be able to do something about it.”
He added “This might help prevent other critical health problem as well, at early stage when nutritional therapies often work best.”
There were many researches that were made earlier about this problem but they were small and didn’t focus on antioxidants.
The researchers said that if new approaches developed successfully may help treat erectile dysfunction in men, egg implantation and endometriosis in women and can also reduce the fatal conditions of per eclampsia in pregnancy.
The study has been published in the journal Pharmacological research.
