A study on macroscopic examnination of semen quality from infertile patients after being fed with supplement from marine clam, Anadara granosa L.was conducted. The objective of this study was to analyze the difference of sperm quality from the treated patients before and after they consumed nutrients from A. granosa L. Semen samples were taken from infertile patients and analyzed at the Prodia Laboratory, Makassar, Indonesia. The clam samples were collected from Pannaikiang Island, District of Barru, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Data analysis applied T-test in order to know the difference of sperm quality before and after administration of supplement from A. granosa L. Placebo administration of 1 capsule per day did not affect the macroscopic characteristics (volume, pH, odor, and color) of collected sperm. Administration of one capsule per day and two capsules per day significantly improved the macroscopic characteristics of the sperm.
