The Panel considers that the food is sufficiently characterised. An increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen is a beneficial physiological effect. In weighing the evidence, the Panel took into account that 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, that no other human studies in which these results have been replicated were provided, and that 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 (standardised by its content of punicalagins) and greater galangal rhizome powder (standardised by its content of acetoxychavicol acetate) and an increase in the number of motile spermatozoa in semen.",
