Supplements for Female Infertility Issues
Fertility Supplements for Women: In numerous clinical studies, vitex (chasteberry), a key ingredient in Fertility Blend and FertilAid for Women, has been effective in relieving symptoms or addressing deficiencies associated with hormonal imbalance. Vitex may be helpful for women who do not have regular or normal menstrual cycles and may be very supportive as well for women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). In clinical trials, vitex has been demonstrated to enhance fertility – and women with fertility disorders benefited from vitex agnus castus, with more pregnancies then in various placebo groups.
Because vitex affects key hormones that regulate and balance the menstrual cycle, vitex can help balance the levels and ratios of hormones required for normal menstrual function, ovulation, and fertility. As vitex is safe, it may be used by women seeking to become pregnant to increase chances of conception. More specifically, it can be used by women with ovulatory dysfunction and by women with shorter luteal phases. Vitex may also be used after discontinuing use of birth control pills to restore normal ovulation.
Complete preconceptional vitamin support has also been shown to help enhance fertility as well. Vitamins C and E are important cleansing antioxidants that play a vital role in repairing damage caused by the environment, aging, and in preventing cellular damage due to oxidizing free radicals. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant central to overall reproductive health and wellness. In a preliminary human trial, infertile couples given vitamin E showed a significant increase in fertility. Other studies indicate that preconceptional vitamin supplementation can increase fertility. Folic acid supplementation is also essential to help prevent birth defects.

Supplements for Male Infertility Issues
Fertility Supplements for Men: For men, reproductive wellness is supported by the amino acid l-carnitine and a potent array of antioxidants. L-carnitine plays a key role in the process of sperm formation, sperm maturation, and the maintenance of sperm quality. L-carnitine is particularly vital in both the development and maturation of sperm in the testes, in the development of the sperm membrane, and in the metabolic processes following ejaculation.
L-carnitine plays a crucial role in sperm development and maturation in the male. Equally important, once the sperm is ejaculated, the sperm requires metabolic efficiency in processing fat and sugars into energy. Sperm motility refers in part to efficient sperm metabolism (the processing of fuel to energy). Sperm must exhibit the ability to metabolize energy effectively in order to swim from the vagina through the cervix, into the uterus and fallopian tube and fertilize the egg. L-carnitine plays a vital role in maintaining the sperm membrane and the metabolic processes that ensure sperm motility.
Grapeseed extract – a key ingredient in FertilAid for Men – is a vital antioxidant that scours damaging free-radicals from the body. Free radicals cause oxidative damage – a literal ‘rusting’ of tissues and cells. This damage can impact male reproductive function and disrupt fertility health. FertilAid for Men combats free radicals with a powerful antioxidant formula, including the scientifically-validated Grapeseed Extract, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Additionally, zinc and the B vitamins are critical to efficient hormone metabolism, sperm formation and sperm motility.
Fertility Blend offers L-Carnitine as well, and intergrates an effective herbal blend designed – and shown in studies – to enhance male fertility.
With couples trying to become pregnant at an older age than in past generations – and the stresses of daily life increasing – couples may need more support in their trying-to-conceive efforts. With 1-5 couples facing infertility issues, fertility supplements like FertilAid and Fertility Blend can help even the odds.
