The EFSA NDA Panel was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to a combination of pomegranate pomace extract and greater galangal rhizome powder and an increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen. The Panel considers that the food is sufficiently characterised. An increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen is a beneficial physiological effect. One human study showed an increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen when the combination of pomegranate pomace extract and greater galangal rhizome powder was consumed for three months, no other human studies in which these results have been replicated were provided, and no evidence was provided for a mechanism by which the food could exert the claimed effect. The Panel concludes that a cause and effect relationship has not been established between the consumption of the combination of pomegranate pomace extract and greater galangal rhizome powder and an increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen.
