  • Start taking your nutritional supplements at least 3 to 4 months before your IVF treatment or natural fertility cycle commences.  
  •  Drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Water is vitally important for every cell in the body and helps to remove and eliminate toxins. 
  • Vitamin C: 500 mg a day will help collagen production and is vital for wound healing following egg retrieval. There is some evidence to suggest that it may help to prevent miscarriage.  Reduce Vitamin C intake to 250mg before transfer.  
  • Folic Acid: helps prevents spina bifida and produce DNA and RNA. 
  • CoQ10: May improve blood flow, enrich endometrium, and improve fertilization rates, “mitochondrial nutrients” may improve egg quality and response to ovarian stimulation. Can improve sperm quality. 
  • Bromalein: Using Pineapple & pineapple core can help to assist implantation: Pineapple contains bromelain. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks up proteins that inhibit embryo implantation. Consuming a whole pineapple (focusing on the core as it has the highest concentration of Bromelain) during a fertility cycle can be beneficial.
