Sperm are more vulnerable to unhealthy factors compared to eggs (especially exposure to a toxic environment and nutritional deficiencies). Unlike eggs whose safety is ensured by the female body and become vulnerable only to maturation, sperm are generated during the preconception and completely exposed to the dangers of nature or natural environment. Also their size, much smaller than eggs, and disposed outside the body increases the chances of injury.
Another essential component of preconception health is optimum nutrition that influence each stage of the reproductive process from sperm formation and maturation until ovuelelor, training, etc milk - processes based on vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids taken up by the body from food.
