Fertility Supplements: Why Quality Matters

Hands off cheap fertility supplements! Why quality matters for micronutrients.

When it comes to fertility, the quality of what we provide our bodies with is crucial. High-quality micronutrients and vitamins can make a remarkable difference in fertility for both men and women. Not all vitamins are created equal. There's a risk of taking cheap or ineffective dietary supplements.

The impact of effective micronutrients on fertility

Micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, play a key role in reproductive health. They're involved in hormone production, cell division, and many other processes essential for fertilization. Deficiency in certain micronutrients can impair fertility.

Quality over quantity

Not all micronutrients are created equal. Cheap dietary supplements might contain fillers, artificial colors, and allergens that could do more harm than good. High-quality supplements are often better tailored to the body's absorption pathways, leading to higher bioavailability, making it easier for the body to absorb them. This allows the nutrients to unleash their full potential.

Bioavailability and absorption

Bioavailability measures how well a nutrient is absorbed and utilized by the body. High-quality micronutrients come in forms that the body easily recognizes and absorbs. This is particularly crucial for minerals like magnesium, zinc, and selenium, which are often present in forms in cheap supplements that the body can barely use.

Effective combination

High-quality supplements often contain a carefully selected combination of micronutrients that work synergistically. This means that the effect of individual nutrients is enhanced through their interaction, further promoting fertility.

Purity of ingredients

High-quality vitamins and nutrients are produced under strict manufacturing conditions ensuring their purity. Contaminants that may be present in cheaper products are thus avoided. Pure ingredients mean less strain on the body and better support for healthy reproductive processes.

Research and development

It is important that supplements are developed by fertility experts based on the latest scientific studies. These products are usually also tested in clinical trials to verify their effectiveness.

Many standard products from drugstores are manufactured by large consumer goods companies that do not focus on the latest science. Therefore, these products often do not offer the same standard of efficacy and effectiveness.

Effective dosage

An effective dosage is crucial for effectiveness. Many products advertise the fact that they cover the complete nutrient requirements with one capsule. However, scientific studies show that a certain minimum supply of nutrients is essential for improving female and male fertility - and unfortunately, this cannot be encapsulated.

Quality differences in micronutrients using Coenzyme Q10 as an example

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vital antioxidant and a component of mitochondrial energy production that exists in two forms:

As ubiquinone, mostly in cheaper powdered form, and as high-quality ubiquinol in gel form. They significantly differ in absorption and bioavailability, which in turn can affect fertility.

Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10 that can be directly utilized by the body without needing conversion. It's considered up to 70% more bioavailable than the more widespread ubiquinone.

High-quality ubiquinol products are often more expensive but reflect the higher bioavailability and therefore greater efficacy. For individuals facing fertility issues, ubiquinol is the better option due to its efficiency and direct availability for cellular processes.

VILAVIT Female only uses high-quality ubiquinol to ensure the best quality to support fertility.

Which nutrients are really important?

Ovarian function and ovulation

Myo-inositol: Myo-inositol regulates the production of estrogen and progesterone, thus promoting ovulation.

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC): A meta-study from 2023 shows that NAC, as a supplementary treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can significantly reduce total testosterone levels.

Support of follicle maturation

Coenzyme Q10: Coenzyme Q10 in the form of ubiquinol is involved in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main energy source of the cells. During follicle maturation, the ovarian follicles need sufficient energy supply to grow and develop.

During follicle maturation, oxidative stress and inflammation may occur, which can damage the egg cells. In this case, coenzyme Q10 has an antioxidative effect and can neutralize the formation of free radicals.

Zinc: Zinc plays an important role in the regulation of estrogen and progesterone.

Folate, or folic acid: During the maturation of the egg cells, an adequate supply of folic acid, or folate, is important to ensure correct DNA synthesis and cell division. A deficiency in folic acid can lead to problems with cell division, which can affect the formation and development of egg cells.

However, about 50% of all women cannot absorb folic acid. They usually don't even know that. Therefore, we recommend taking the bioavailable form in the form of folate.

 Embryo quality

Omega-3 fatty acids rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): Studies have shown that an adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids reduces inflammatory reactions in the body and thus has a positive effect on fertility and embryo quality.

In addition, omega-3 fatty acids support an increased proportion of natural killer cells, which can negatively affect the implantation of the embryo.

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC): NAC increases the glutathione (GSH) level and thus reduces oxidative stress. Studies have shown that NAC can reduce oxidative damage to sperm and thus improve sperm quality. In women, NAC can support the chromosomal structure of the egg cell.

Alpha-lipoic acid: Alpha-lipoic acid promotes embryo development.

DNA synthesis and cell division

Folic acid, or folate: Folic acid has numerous important functions in the body, including involvement in DNA synthesis and regulation of the gene expression of genes involved in cell division.

Zinc: Zinc is a cofactor for various enzymes involved in the repair of DNA damage and cell division.

Fertility and health

Opting for high-quality micronutrients is a choice for health, well-being, and fertility. It's important for couples trying to conceive to choose carefully selected, bioavailable nutrients that optimally support their bodies.
