Fertility Vitamins Guide

Do I need Fertility vitamins?

You may be thinking can’t I just take a multivitamin and eat a balanced diet, and for many people that will be enough, but fertility specific vitamins – designed for women and men – contain other ingredients especially for healthy sperm and egg production and hormone balance.

[su_quote cite=”DR PHIL BOYLE, NEO FERTILITY”]Even for those who eat a healthy and balanced diet, I recommend that couples give themselves additional nutritional support in the form of a special fertility supplement. I recommend a comprehensive fertility supplement with relevant dose levels of multi vitamins and minerals when trying to conceive.[/su_quote]

When should I start taking fertility supplements?

If you are preparing to try and conceive, start taking fertility vitamins 3 months prior to trying. This will build up your levels to their optimum. If you’ve been trying for over a year with no joy you may want to see your GP to get referred for some initial tests.

What do Fertility Vitamins contain?

It’s not just a one size fits all. Women and men have different fertility needs. Fertility vitamins for women contain the following key benefits:

For a full list of ingredients and more information on Proceive’s fertility supplements, click here. With any vitamin supplement when you are trying to conceive or are pregnant, you need to make sure that the Vitamin A content is not too high, the recommended daily allowance when pregnant or trying to conceive is 770mcg (or 2565 IU). Vitamin A is high in certain foods like liver. The levels in different brands of supplements are not always the same, so you need to compare the ingredients list, don’t just go by price or packaging. According to this UK study, there are some herbal food supplements that make claims to aid fertility which vary in quality. Fertility supplements that come under the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) or Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) are best as these are regulated and contain what they claim on the label. If your herbal supplement is registered under the Food Standards Agency (FSA), their manufacture is not regulated and therefore may not have the quantities of nutrients that the label claims (though they shouldn’t do you any harm).
