Kirkman Introduces P2i Baby™ Preconception Vitamins & Minerals for Men - Hypoallergenic

PORTLAND, OR --(Marketwired - April 19, 2016) - Oregon based nutraceutical company Kirkman® formulated their new P2i Baby™ line to offer prospective parents optimal nutritional care during the preconception and prenatal periods. While the importance of nutrition for prospective mothers is well know, less attention has historically been paid to the role of nutrition of fathers.

However, research is making it clear that the environmental exposures and nutritional choices of a father-to-be can have profound effects on reproductive outcomes, from a failure to conceive to birth defects.

Among other finding, studies indicate:

  • vitamin E and selenium supplementation both increased motility and reduced the concentration of malformed sperm;
  • high doses of vitamin C significantly improve sperm count and motility;
  • high doses of vitamin B-12 increase sperm counts.

Smoking and excessive drinking are likely the most common (and most commonly recognized) reproductive hazards, and both can lead to reduced sperm counts. But there are other common exposures, including pesticides and heavy metals, that can also have detrimental effects on fertility.

Kirkman's new P2i Baby™ Preconception Vitamins & Minerals for Men - Hypoallergenic -- part of Kirkman'sP2i Baby™ line -- was formulated with these findings in mind.

These supplements include 142% of the recommended daily allowance of selenium and 100% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E. High levels of Vitamin C and Vitamin B-12 are also included (416% and 1,666% of recommended daily allowance, respectively), as well as 19 other vitamins and minerals.

To avoid exposure to any fertility damaging toxins, these supplements are Ultra Pure™, meaning they are tested for, and verified free of, more than 950 environmental contaminants.

P2i Baby™ Preconception Vitamins & Minerals for Men - Hypoallergenic is now available from Kirkman®.
