Only about 400 to 500 of the 200,000 egg cells present at birth leave the ovaries in the course of a woman’s child-bearing years. In and of itself, the transport of the egg during each monthly cycle is a super-achievement. The term peristalsis refers to muscle activity in hollow organs. Most women don’t think of peristalsis in relation to the fallopian tubes, nevertheless it’s only by means of the hormones and neurotransmitters involved in peristalsis that these tubes’ circular muscle strands turn into a functioning delivery system for ripe egg cells. Compromised fertility in women can have several causes, all of which should be taken into consideration by a responsibly-conceived dietary supplement for promoting female fertility.
There is a better chance that the maternal and paternal gene pools are successfully combined when more components for a successful fertilization and subsequent implantation are stimulated by natural means.
Selected vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes which are administered at the correct time of day can support female fertility by using activating substances in the morning and regenerative substances in the evening. These active substances function to stabilize the nervous system and ensure the improved function of reproductive organs. An optimal chronobiological supplement supports the female body prior to fertilization in order to create optimal conditions. With success, three out of four healthy women at the age of 30 achieve pregnancy within one year, without artificial insemination or the use of drugs. Substances which affect blood flow positively are used in the morning, whereas evening substances ensure needed cell protection.
Myo-inositol, a vitamin in the extensive B-complex group, is a main component of the cell membrane, thus an important component of cell growth. Myo-inositol also helps maintain healthy insulin levels. This B-vitamin also affects the brain metabolism of the future mother and facilitates the body’s own production of the “happy” hormone serotonin – a gift for any anxious woman during this time of high stress. Studies have shown that in the three months before fertilization, higher levels of myo-inositol in the follicle liquid is one of the factors that indicates improved egg quality. Many women might already know of inositol as a particularly skin-friendly vitamin; but in addition to this, you can see it is also of great importance to the rest of the body.
The amino acid L-arginine supports healthy blood flow to the reproductive organs and helps to create optimal conditions for embryo implantation. In particular, the formation of protein-similar mucus in the uterus can be attributed to this amino acid.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin whose important task consists of protecting tissue structure, cell membranes and cell components like proteins and enzymes against oxidative damage by free radicals. The danger of these damages occurring increases with increased metabolism, as occurs with physical effort, acute diseases, and during pregnancy.
Likewise, Vitamin E (tocopherol) protects against oxidative stress, and promotes the healing of existing oxidative damage. As a fat-soluble vitamin, it is present especially in cell membranes, where it exerts its antioxidant effects in addition to supporting and strengthening the effects of vitamin C.
The different substances that are part of the vitamin B-complex serve around the clock as important components of the various enzymes that direct key processes involved in metabolism. From this group, B6 is best taken in the morning, while all others are most effective in the evening.
Vitamin K is necessary for the formation of several clotting factors in the liver.
If a vitamin K deficiency is present, it may lead to life-threatening bleeding. A vitamin K deficiency seems to accompany an increased risk of abortion, especially in the first days after conception.
Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium and phosphate from food in the intestine, and promotes the activation and mineralization of these two minerals in the bones. Therefore, the necessary calcium levels are maintained in the blood by increasing the absorption of calcium from ingested food, and decreasing its loss through the kidneys.
Carotenoids supply a preliminary form of vitamin A to a woman’s body. There’s a reason the first letter in the alphabet is dedicated to vitamin A; it fulfills important reproduction-related tasks during cell division and growth. The preliminary form of vitamin A, also known as beta-carotene, is first among those nutrients that protect the body against harmful substances and pathogens and support the immune system. Carotenoids are generally classified as very effective protective substances because of their strong antioxidant properties, helping the body fight and neutralize aggressive free radicals. The body manufactures exactly the required amount of organic-active vitamin A from beta-carotene, making overdosing is improbable.
Special molecules found in tomatoes have been recognized by the European Food Safety Authority EFSA as the very first botanical substances to produce a desired health effect. These substances, found in the patented formula Fruitflow®, produced convincing results relating to the optimization of healthy blood flow in seven scientific studies – addressing a timely concern in this day and age.
Important trace elements such as selenium, chromium, molybdenum, iodine, calcium, and other bone-friendly nutrients must be stored in the body in sufficient quantities at the time of fertilization and before the formation of the woman’s placenta. Iodine deficiency ranks among the most common causes of developmental disturbances during pregnancy world-wide. Elements and minerals like molybdenum support the effectiveness of amino acids and enzymes, especially if they are supplied chronobiologically, in the correct combination with them. A balanced supply of calcium is also necessary for the fertilized egg to implant properly and develop into a full-blown pregnancy.
Water-soluble members of the B vitamin complex vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B12 (cobalamin), folic acid (B9), pantothenic acid (B5), biotin (B7), and niacin (B3) – work during the night as co-enzymes in their recovery functions relating to cognitive ability, the nervous system, the production of energy, and the process of detoxification. Interesting fact: folic acid helps maintain healthy blood cell counts and cell growth in the reproductive system.
The polyphenol Resveratrol is a natural, highly-effective antioxidant derived primarily from the peel and core of grapes, with proven antioxidant effects as a free-radical inhibitor – as are quercetin, catechins and OPC, also part of “red wine medicine.” Resveratrol doesn’t only neutralize reactive oxygen molecules; it’s also important for protecting the blood vessel health of the future mother, as it helps maintain healthy levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood, and as direct consequence works to discourage its storage in the vessel wall.
CO Q10, a CO-enzyme involved in a variety of biological processes, plays a key role in successful fertilization and implantation. Today’s high-quality raw materials and new scientific developments make high bio-availability, and thus increased efficacy, possible. Like folic acid, biotin is involved in numerous metabolic processes as a co-enzyme. The need for this co-factor is great in the days before a pregnancy as well as during the entire pregnancy and lactation period.
Important minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, copper, zinc, iron, as well as omega 3-fatty acids round off this formula. They are important because, for example, a lack of magnesium is involved in many pregnancy complications.
Omega-3 fatty acids are used by the body for many different vital functions. As a component of the cell walls, they are indispensable for optimal development of the brain in the womb, and for the formation of nerve cells. Beyond that, omega-3 fatty acids support healthy circulation and blood pressure within normal ranges, as well as supporting healthy cholesterol levels already within normal ranges – extremely important for a healthy cardiovascular system. Two of the most important essential fatty acids are DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). The body cannot produce these, so they must therefore be supplied. If they are present in sufficient quantity before a pregnancy occurs, the probability of a successful pregnancy rises significantly.
The Peruvian root maca was used by Inca queens to increase sexual energy, stamina and desire. Even thousands of years ago, healers were preoccupied with treating sexual concerns. Back then, they looked for solutions in the “treasure chest” of nature.
Macaplex® is an extremely potent maca root extract enhanced with a variety of mineral, essential amino acids and trace elements, which not only boosts libido, but also helps maintain healthy hormonal balance in general. The stabilization of hormonal cycles is the first condition that must be met for the healthy functioning of the female reproduction organs. Macaplex® also promotes physical and mental energy, and supports immune-system health.
The patented MCHC® (micro-crystalline hydroxyl apatite), a formula containing an unusually hard substance found in all vertebrate animals and humans, makes an optimal source of minerals in a special micro-crystalline form for easy absorption.
A sufficient amount of essential fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) should be present before pregnancy, to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
®Coral Calcium and ®Bioperine increase the bioabailability of nearly all active substances and are effective around the clock. A healthy calcium balance is also needed to assure that the fertilized egg implants into the lining of the uterus and the desired pregnancy is achieved.
