Supportive micronutrient care for female fertility patients
of fertility treatment
A healthy, wholesome, and varied diet usually provides you with all important micronutrients. Fortunately, with a few exceptions, a real undersupply is very rare.
In order to support fertility treatment from the inside out, however, it has proven useful not only to ensure that there are no deficits but to rely on an optimal supply.
Folic acid exerts a protective effect particularly during early pregnancy when a low folate level is a risk factor for the development of neural tube defects in the growing fetus.
To increase folate levels, supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400 μg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception is necessary.
Fertility patients and mature women who wish to conceive benefit from mitochondrial nutrients like coenzyme Q10.
This vital substance is involved in the metabolic processes in the mitochondria, the places where energy is generated within the body’s cells.
No other cell in our body contains as many mitochondria as the oocyte, and especially during oocyte maturation and pregnancy, a lot of energy is required!
Other vital substances such as iron, iodine, and antioxidants play an important role in supporting the body during preconception as well.
While iron is essential for the transport of oxygen in blood and iodine contributes to healthy thyroid function, antioxidants like vitamin E and C protect DNA, proteins, and lipids of cells from oxidative stress.
