In a study that was conducted, they were giving men who were exposed to lead in their every day lives a thousand milligrams of vitamin C. What was found is the fact that those who were given the vitamin C also had higher sperm counts, they also had fewer incidents of abnormal sperm counts. We also tested men who were married to someone who wasn’t infertile and the vitamin C all helped them to have children after about two months of that same dosage of vitamin C.
- Twenty-seven men with fertile wives had been trying to have kids for years to no avail. Twenty of them were given 1,000 mg of vitamin C a day for two months.
- An earlier study showed vitamin C supplementation apparently cut lead levels by a third within six months, but that was with a whopping dose of 2 g with added zinc.
- We may have evolved for millions of years getting closer to 600 mg a day—ten times the current RDA—because we were eating so many fruits and greens.
“By then, every single one of the wives of each of the 20 men who had gotten the vitamin C had became pregnant—20 out of 20!”
