Hello good afternoon Aozora ..


Folavit is a supplement that contains folic acid. Folic acid (another name for vitamin B9) is a vitamin that has many benefits, one of which is to improve sperm quality. Healthy sperm is known by:

the amount (at least 1 ml of semen contains 15 million sperm cells)
motility / movement of sperm (at least 40% of the sperm count must be mobile and 25% must be able to move forward quickly)
sperm form (at least 30% of sperm have normal sperm form)


Apart from being in supplement form, actually folic acid can also be found in foods, such as vegetables (spinach, broccoli, bean sprouts), nuts, potatoes and oranges. There is no time limit until how long folic acid can be consumed, because basically folic acid is what the body needs every day, as long as the consumption is not excessive (if you take supplements the dose is not excessive).


Several other vitamins and minerals are also known to help improve sperm quality, including:

zinc, which is found in meat, shellfish, milk and other processed products
selenium, found in meat, fish, nuts, eggs
vitamin D, found in fish, red meat, egg yolks
antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, vegetables, and fruits


In addition to paying attention to vitamin and mineral intake, other things that can also play a big role in improving sperm quality include:

consumption of healthy foods
exercise regularly
if you are overweight, then try to reach the ideal body weight
do not smoke
do not consume alcoholic beverages
get enough rest
avoid stress
don't wear pants too tight
avoid frequent soaking in warm water
avoid sitting too long


That's all, hope this helps :)
