Fertility Supplements

There are a range of men’s & women’s supplements & vitamins for fertility health available on the market today by several companies. To help with the confusion we have narrowed down the multitude of men’s and women’s fertility supplements to a select few that we would recommend taking if you trying to boost your fertility.

Fertility Supplements discussed in more detail below are DHEA, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), Inofolic-Alpha and Impryl.

 

DHEA

DHEA Wild Yam Extract Fertility Supplement

What is it?

DHEA stands for Dihydroepiandosterone, and it is an intermediary hormone in the pathway that leads to oestrogen and testosterone production in the ovaries. Supplementing the diet with DHEA appears to increase egg and embryo numbers as well as improving egg quality.

Women with a diminished ovarian reserve should consider taking 25mgs ‘micronized’ DHEA three times a day for 2 months prior to egg collection. Avoid taking DHEA if you have PCOS.
