Supplement to help binding to an egg?

Does anyone know of a supplement that a man can take to improve the ability of his sperm to bind to the egg? Martina :)

Binding is when the sperm attaches itself to the egg so that it can release the enzymes that create the gap in the egg through which the sperm will swim. I have been told that if the membrane on the sperm has a protein deficiency then the sperm will not bind to the egg.
