StaminoGro for Sperm Production


Healthy sperm is required for achieving a pregnancy. However, in nearly half of all couples who have difficulty achieving conception, a male infertility problem can be identified. In addition, in almost all causes of male infertility are usually related to sperm disorders – either too few in number or of inadequate quality. In fact, for more than half of men who experience fertility challenges, the challenge relates to damage to their sperm production.

Usually, there are no obvious signs or symptoms of a problem with the sperm, other than the fact that a couple is not pregnant. In fact, erections, intercourse and ejaculation will usually happen normally and the quantity and appearance of ejaculated semen will appear normal.

Possible signs of male infertility include chronic pain in the genital area or erectile dysfunction. Other indicators include previous sexually transmitted diseases, testicular surgery or trauma, and a history of mumps during teenage years. Men who have had or are planning to have cancer treatment are also at risk of sperm-related infertility.

When to seek assistance

There is a long list of possible medical causes of problems with sperm production and male infertility, as well as a wide range of specialised medications and treatments for these conditions.

If you are concerned about your sperm production, you should immediately contact a fertility specialist who will be able to identify the exact cause of the sperm problem and provide expert information regarding available treatment options.


Certain lifestyle choices and stress also feature increasingly strongly as causal factors for sperm problems, because poor lifestyle choices and stress negatively affect your overall health, and, therefore, your fertility as well. These lifestyle choices include, for example, the use of anabolic steroids or gym supplements, a BMI of more than 30, and excessive smoking, alcohol use and illicit drug abuse.

It also includes the common habits of modern life – a fast-paced lifestyle, excessive stress management and poor eating habits. An on-the-go lifestyle often forces us to opt for food that is fast and convenient, but tends to be low in vitamins, minerals and fibre yet high in calories, fat, sweeteners and sodium.

In addition, countless factors influence the ability of our body to fully utilise nutrients from food or maintain optimal nutrient levels. These factors, according to StaminoGro, include reduced soil quality, food processing, food preparation methods, as well as eating irregular meals and snacking.

As a result, few of us are able to maintain an optimal nutritional status (the balance between nutrient intake and nutrient requirement), to promote growth and development, maintain general health, support daily living and protect against disease and illness, and – of course – produce healthy sperm.

Fortunately, there are also supplements available over-the-counter that are recommended by fertility experts for their role in boosting overall health, fertility and sperm production, as they contain certain vitamins, minerals, herbs or other amino acids.

Medfem recommends StaminoGro and that both partners should continue to take four tablets just before sleeping until they have achieved a 12-week pregnancy. Below we explain in more detail why we recommend these supplements.

Why we recommend StaminoGro

StaminoGro is a combination supplement that is a human growth hormone releaser, and vitamin and mineral complex in a slow release matrix. It contains amino acids, antioxidants, B-complex vitamins, calcium and other vitamins and minerals, all of which work in synergy to promote health, well-being and vitality.

StaminoGro provides additional nutrition, while the amino acid L-Arginine it contains helps the body to secrete more of its own natural growth hormone. It is also specifically formulated to act as a potent enhancer for mitochondria – the structures in each cell that produce energy for cell functions.

As the body gets older, the less natural growth hormone it secretes. StaminoGro promotes natural growth hormone release and enhances rejuvenation of mitochondria throughout the body. This can lead to a reversal of cellular ageing and could prevent the production of damaging free radicals, with cellular rejuvenation being the possible outcome.

Furthermore, StaminoGro contains selenium that supports your body’s ability to produce normal immune response, and Vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant by protecting your body from free radical damage; slows down the aging process; and also reduces the duration and severity of colds and flu.

The amino acids in StaminoGro also assist with overcoming prolonged stress; reducing body fat when combined with exercise; improving wound healing and reducing post-operative infections. These amino acids also positively influence the immune system and strengthen and enhance lean body mass.

StaminoGro also contains vitamin B1, which is essential to help breakdown and release energy from fat, protein and carbohydrates; vitamin B12 and folic acid that boost energy levels; and magnesium that acts as a muscle relaxant to help prevent cramps.

As such, StaminoGro may be of benefit to persons suffering from immune problems, depression, insomnia and fatigue – and sub-fertility.

In clinical applications at Medfem Fertility Clinic, supplementing with StaminoGro has led to improved sperm morphology and sperm DNA maturity. This is because StaminoGro contains Vitamin E and selenium, which assist with the production of normal spermatozoa by protecting cells from free radical damage.

StaminoGro also contains Arginine (also known as L’arginine), an amino acid which may improve sperm development to produce better sperm and increase sperm count, as well as enhance motility.

In women, L-arginine may enhance endometrial receptivity and improve ovarian responses. There is evidence that it also increases pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF treatments. This is why both partners should take the supplements.

StaminoGro is lactose, sucrose, gluten and tartrazine free, suitable for use by vegetarians and SANHA approved. It is available in a pack size of 30, 60 and 120 tablets at Dis-Chem, Clicks, independent pharmacies and selected retail stores.
