This article at a glance
- Two recent studies have addressed the role of omega-3 LCPUFA in varicocele and asthenozoospermia, two relatively common disorders of male fertility.
- Higher dietary intake of EPA, DHA and total omega-3 LCPUFA was found to be associated with a reduced probability to suffer asthenozoospermia.
- In infertile men with varicocele, the levels of EPA, DHA and total omega-3 in spermatozoa were significantly lower than in control subjects.
