There is a big difference between quality of different multivitamins and the body’s ability to breakdown, assimilate and utilize the nutrients.
The best type of prenatal multivitamin is one that is made from whole foods.
Nutrition plays a big roll in having healthy fertility and experiencing a healthy pregnancy.
Nutritional deficiencies have been linked to ovulation issues, hormonal imbalances, poor egg health, low sperm count and so much more. Every cell in our bodies that make up our organs, create hormones and enzymes that make us function and these are created by the nutrients we take in through the food we eat.
Taking a whole food multivitamin daily can help to fill the gaps where diets may be falling short.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is needed to help the body create sex hormones which in turn affects ovulation and hormonal balance.
Some studies have found that a deficiency of B may increase the chances of irregular ovulation, and in severe cases stop ovulation altogether.
Folic Acid: Perhaps one of the best known vitamins necessary for pregnancy is folic acid.
Women who took their multivitamin six times a week were 40% less likely to fail to ovulate than women who took none.
Studies have also shown a diet deficient in Vitamin E to be a cause of infertility in rats.
The meaning of the name for vitamin E, ‘Tocopherol’, literally means to bear young.
Zinc: In women, zinc works with more than 300 different enzymes in the body to keep things working well.
Without it, your cells can not divide properly; your estrogen and progesterone levels can get out of balance and your reproductive system may not be fully functioning.
