Hello UNIQUE body with individual needs! Wondering about supplements for fertility? You don't need to take errrrrrrything. Anything below sound familiar?
Could you have low progesterone?
Symptoms: Irregular cycles, weight gain, cheek and jawline acne, hormonal migraines, a tendency to feel the cold
ADD: Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is a fundamental vitamin for the development of the corpus luteam – a dynamic and temporary gland which produces progesterone in the second half of your cycle.
IT’LL ALSO HELP: Brain function
Could you have high estrogen?
Symptoms: PMS, swollen breasts or fibrocystic breasts, heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding, tendency to feel warm or have hot flashes
ADD: Calcium D-glucarate. It will help your liver process estrogen to reverse estrogen dominance.
IT’LL ALSO HELP: Decrease the LDL cholesterol (yip, that’s the bad one)
Could you have diminished egg quality?
Signs: Any woman around or older than 35, or women with a history of recurrent first trimester miscarriage
ADD: Co-enzyme Q10. I love this antioxidant and I think everyone trying to conceive should be on it! A 2015 study showed age associated changes in egg quality are minimised when CoQ10 is at optimal levels. Women of 4o or older, consider taking your Co-Q10 in ubiquinol form.
IT’LL ALSO HELP: Slow the aging process of your skin
Could you need more sunshine?
Symptoms: Weight gain, low moods, PMS symptoms
ADD: Vitamin D. Our major source is sunshine, but even here in sunny Australia, more than 30 per cent of adults are deficient. Vitamin D is involved in development of sex hormones crucial for a healthy reproductive system. In the IVF world, adequate vitamin D has been been strongly linked to successful IVF outcomes.
IT'LL ALSO HELP: Your bones and teeth - now and well into old age.
Or do you have PMS with gastro intestinal issues?
Symptoms: Bloating, cramping, constipation
ADD: Magnesium. Can I have more than one favourite? This mineral is essential for over 300 reactions in our bodies – and we’re getting less than ever. Typically found in green leafy vegetables, our soils are depleted and a result, so are we.
IT’LL ALSO HELP: SO MUCH MORE - Sleep, energy production, healthy mood stability, act as an anti-inflammatory within the body.
