fructose is produced in seminal vesicle through polyol pathway which means reduction of glucose to sorbitol by aldose reductase with NADPH cofactor then the conversion of sorbitol to fructose by sorbitol dehydrogenase with NAD as cofactor and in this pathway there is no need of input energy (ATP).

Yes. It contains a form of fructose that acts as a source of energy for the sperm. - Source: various googles and Manswers!

Fructose is the energy source for sperm, which helps propel the flagella to create movement.

it is a source of energy

There is a rather large amount of fructose and a small amount of galactose in semen. The fructose is there because it is the food source for the sperm so they can swim. The fructose comes from the seminal vesicles, while the galactose is from the bulbourethral gland.

Semen provides fructose for sperm.

The liver breaks down fructose in food to yield energy. Fructose is considered the ideal energy source, excess is converted by the liver and stored as fat.

The epididymis is the are where sperm fully mature as they receive fructose. This is a narrow tube that is tightly coiled.

Yes the fructose in the apple is always good for the body. We must remember that an apple is a very good fruit to eat.

The delivery of sperm to the female endocrine is enhanced due to the secretion of fructose. This will increase the energy level and makes the sperm more motile.

The seminal vesicles, which are accessory glands of the male reproductive system, produces fructose. This sugar is essential for the survival of sperm cells.

The thick secretions from the seminal vesicles contain proteins, enzymes, fructose, mucus, vitamin C, flavins, phosphorylcholine and prostaglandins. The high fructose concentrations provide nutrient energy for the spermatozoa.

Fructose is also called fruit sugar because it is the type of sugars made from fruit. Its full function depends up what it is located in but it is a carbohydrate which means that it functions as a source of energy.

Yes, you do. Glucose, it is called. It come in the form of lactose, sucrose, and fructose. You need it to live. It is a big source of energy.

Sperm learn to swim once it reaches the seminal vesicles. The vesicles provide fluid loaded with fructose that provides motility for the sperm

I need to know as well!!! Glucose or dextrose are sugars that are used in the production of lite beers as a source of energy for fermentation.

Yes, but it is not available as easily as fructose. Glucose is present in all living cells as the source of energy to produce ATP for metabolism.

A type of sugar, fructose, is one of the components of semen. But table sugar, which is a molecule of fructose plus a molecule of glucose, is not found in the semen.

After sperm is produced, it travels through the testes through sperm ducts that circle the bladder, a gland called the seminal vesicle provides sperm with a fluid. This fluid supplies the sperm with an energy source and helps them move.

No. Most organisms can use various compounds for energy. First of all there are many sugars that can be used for energy such as glucose, galactose, fructose etc... Proteins are another source of energy although less efficient at storing energy than sugars. Of course when the body has an excess of glucose, the energy reserves are stored as lipids (fat) which can later be used to harvest energy.

It gives supply of quick energy
