CoQ10
Ingredient:
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)
Dosage:
300 mg
Fertility:
Current research suggests that Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which is a natural byproduct of mitochondrial function, can cause mutations in our mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The propagation of these mutations are what some scientists define as aging. ROS can be overproduced in our cells due to poor lifestyle, drinking alcohol, smoking, stress and aging.
ROS is an important factor in fertility due to the fact that a women's oocytes (eggs) have orders of magnitude more mitochondria than any other cell in the body. This is why many scientists believe that ROS mediation is an important factor in supporting fertility.
Function:
CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that helps scavenge and remove ROS at the mitochondrial level, helping prevent damage to mtDNA.* Oocytes have orders of magnitude more mitochondria than any other cell, so preventing damage to mtDNA is crucial in supporting fertility.*
Science:
Works With:
Vitamins C & E
Added Benefits:
Protects & repairs skin*, improves mood*
Found In:
Spinach, Broccoli and Cauliflower
Vitamin C
Ingredient:
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Dosage:
250 mg

Function:
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps scavenge and remove ROS at the mitochondrial level, helping prevent damage to mtDNA.* Oocytes have orders of magnitude more mitochondria than any other cell, so preventing damage to mtDNA is crucial in supporting fertility.*
Science:
Works With:
CoQ10 & Vitamin E
Added Benefits:
Protects & repairs skin*, supports the immune system*
Found In:
Oranges, Red Peppers, Kale, Grapefruit and Strawberries
Vitamin E
Ingredient:
Vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopheryl Succinate)
Dosage:
250 mg
Fertility:
Current research suggests that Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which is a natural byproduct of mytochondrial function, can cause mutations in our mytochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The propogation of these mutations are what some scientists define as aging. ROS can be overproduced in our cells due to poor lifestlye, drinking alcohol, smoking, stress and aging.
ROS is considered an important factor in fertility due to the fact that a women's oocytes (eggs) have orders of magnitiude more mytochondria than any other cell in the body. This is why many scientists believe that ROS mediation is an important factor in fertility
Function:
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps scavenge and remove ROS at the mitochondrial level, helping prevent damage to mtDNA.* Oocytes have orders of magnitude more mitochondria than any other cell, so preventing damage to mtDNA is crucial in supporting fertility.*
Science:
Works With:
CoQ10 & Vitamin C
Added Benefits:
Supports healthy Hair & nail growth*
Found In:
Pistachios, Walnuts and Flaxseed
Vitamin D3
Ingredient:
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Dosage:
1,000 IU
Fertility:
Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) is one of the most effective ways to measure a woman’s ovarian reserve, and is therefore used as a proxy for fertility. Recent studies show that women with sufficient levels of vitamin D are significantly more likely to achieve clinical pregnancy following IVF. This result implies a very strong connection between maintaining Vitamin D levels and increasing a woman’s fertility.
Function:
Current research suggests that Vitamin D plays a significant role in expressing AMH, a key measure of a woman’s fertility.*
Science:
Added Benefits:
Improves mood*, Healthy bones*
Found In:
Sunlight (through our skin), Fish, Milk and Fortified dairy products
Folic Acid
Ingredient:
Folate (Folic Acid)
Dosage:
500 mcg
Fertility:
Neural tube defects (NTD) are birth defects of the brain, spine, or spinal cord, and are among the most common congenital anomalies in the United States. NTDs can happen in the first month of pregnancy, often before a woman even knows that she is pregnant. Since 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned, women taking folic acid are better prepared to prevent NTDs.
Function:
Folic Acid has been shown to be important in the maintenance of overall good health, and has also been strongly implicated in the development of the fetal central nervous system.*
Science:
Works With:
Vitamin B12
Added Benefits:
Improves mood*
Found In:
Lentils, Avocado and Oranges
Vitamin B12
Ingredient:
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
Dosage:
500 mcg
Fertility:
Vitamin B12 should be taken with Folic Acid, as Folic Acid can inadvertently mask a Vitamin B12 deficiency.
Function:
Vitamin B12 is also known for helping the body turn carbohydrates into energy.*
Science:
Works With:
Folate
Added Benefits:
Improves mood*
Found In:
Nori (Japanese edible seaweed), Red Meat and Milk
