Fertility Boosters

Zinc.  Zinc is a great vitamin to supplement with when trying to conceive!  It is actually believed to make your body more welcoming and supportive of sperm — meaning fertilization becomes a bit easier!

Coenzyme Q10.  This supplement is actually great for both you and your partner to take!  Studies show that it can actually drastically improve the quality of both your eggs and his sperm.

Omega 3 Fatty Acid (Fish Oil).  This supplement can give embryos better quality and viability, which is obviously necessary!

Vitamin C.  This is another vitamin that’s for both of you!  Vitamin C has been shown to increase progesterone in women, which is vital when trying to conceive.  It can also produce stronger sperm and in more quantities!

Selenium.  This is a proactive way to take care of your body, Mama!  Selenium can protect your reproductive system from free radicals found everywhere.

L-Arganine.  Supplementing with L-Arganine will improve your chances of implantation because it can thicken your uterine lining!

These supplements are just plain important to be taking whenever you’re trying to conceive — they’re to help maintain your health and a growing baby’s health, even before you know they’re there!

Vitamin D.  This vitamin helps to regulate calcium and phosphate–which is essential for growing a baby’s bones and teeth, and protecting your teeth as well!

Folic Acid.  We can’t stress enough the importance of Folic Acid!  You’ll need to be taking this as soon as you decide you want to try to conceive, and continue taking it throughout the early stages of pregnancy!  It’s necessary in building and protecting Baby’s nervous system–and preventing complications like spina bifida.

Prenatals.  This may be a no-brainer, but this is another pill you should be taking from the moment you decide you’re ready to become a mom!  This will help stimulate baby’s growth and ensure the best health for both of you!

 

So go ahead and grab a pill organizer now, Mama, you’re going to want to remember all of these!  Once you start supplementing your healthy diet with these, your fertility will get a much-needed boost, and hopefully you’ll be pregnant before you know it!  Just make sure you always discuss with your doctor — don’t begin taking any additional medication without consulting them first! Good luck, mama, you’ve got this!
