    I know, but since the Glyco-flex III benefits in other areas, and I had such good results, I'm not changing a thing. There has been some anecdotal evidence that the Glyco-Flex III improves sterility, like you I also believe the Omega Gold capsules work, so I don't want to experiment by eliminating one or the other to see what happens. It also could be that neither was responsible for the dramatic improvement, maybe Gus was just going through a phase, but my bet is that the suppliments did the trick.

    Rebel had the same problem, low sperm count with some missing heads or tails. Repro vet stated cause was stress. We took him out of training for several months, put him on Omega 3-6-9 and when he went back for another sperm count, they were all normal, complete with heads and tails, swimming all in the right direction and about 90 - 95% motility.

    This is an interesting thread...helpful to me for my older boy. He does get hip/joint supplement plus oils, however not the same makers so may try switching.

    http://www.midwoof.com/store/reprodu.../prod_222.html I think Myra Savant Harris also talks about this in her repro seminars.
