Do I need to take a prenatal supplement?

Preconception and pregnancy is a critical time whereby optimal health and nutrition is fundamental for both the mother and her baby. A comprehensive prenatal supplement can ensure their vital nutritional needs are met.

What is MyGen Health’s Fertility Formula?

Mygen Health’s Fertility Formula is the most complete and comprehensive supplement available to women wishing to conceive and pregnant women. It contains therapeutic levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants necessary for conception and a successful pregnancy.

Why would MyGen Health’s Fertility Formula for Women be recommended above other supplements?

Mygen Health’s Fertility Formula for women is a complete and comprehensive supplement. Taking an integrative medicine and naturopath pregnancy approach, it contains therapeutic levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are necessary for conception and a healthy pregnancy.

The formula provides antioxidants necessary to combat oxidative stress. Antioxidants such as CoQ10, lipoic acid, betacarotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, selenium and zinc are all present in good doses and can support healthy fertility. In addition Mygen Health’s Fertility Formula for women contains:

  • 500mcg of calcium folinate. This is a source of folinic acid, which quickly converts to the most active form of folate, which may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of the brain or spinal chord such as neural tube defects.
  • B vitamins are necessary for normal hormone production. B12, like folic acid is plays a role in healthy cell replication, as is therefore important during pregnancy when foetal cells are quickly replicating and differentiating.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid. A powerful antioxidant that enhances the antioxidant functions of vitamins C & E and other antioxidants and can mediate oxidative damage generated through diet and toxic exposure.
  • Coenzyme Q10 – anitoxidant CoQ10 is found in the mitochondria of the body cells, where it plays an essential role in the production of cellular energy. Recent studies have suggested its antioxidant role supports healthy is necessary for a healthy pregnancy (1). Further studies have confirmed a progressive increase in maternal requirements throughout the 2nd and 3rd trimesters (2).
  • Selenium. Selenium supports healthy pregnancy. It plays a role in thyroid hormone production and supports the function of the immune system.

What should I do to prepare for pregnancy?

A healthy body for both potential parents can increase the chances of a successful pregnancy and help to overcome any potential impediments to fertility.

Our diets should be the cornerstone of our nutritional health and it is important that both potential partners adhere to a diet of healthy nutritional whole foods. This means fresh, unrefined whole foods, high in nutrients, antioxidants and protein. Choose organic sources wherever possible because they provide both higher levels of nutrients and less chemicals and toxins.

Drink adequate levels of purified water and avoid foods that can compromise fertility such as caffeine, alcohol and processed foods.

Lifestyle factors such as exercise, ensuring adequate amounts of sleep and stress management or relaxation techniques should also be considered necessary for couples trying to improve both their chances of conception and optimising healthy pregnancy outcomes.

I’m in my late thirties and want to have a child now. Should I do something special to prepare?

If you are planning to start a family and you are in your late 30s preconception care can support your reproductive health and conception. Our health in the 3-4 months prior to conception is the most paramount and can impact upon our ability to conceive. During the preconception period we would advise women to see their GP and/or naturopath to rule out any potential health issues that could compromise fertility. A thorough hormonal and infection screen is recommended to ensure that there are no specific issues that may need to be treated before a couple starts to try for their baby.

Why do I need supplements before I am pregnant?

Unfortunately lifestyle factors, age, stress, poor diet choices and digestive disorders can easily compromise our nutritional status. Supplementation of vital nutrients during preconception and pregnancy can address some of the gaps that may result. Supplementation of these key nutrients not only increases the chances of a healthy baby but can also benefit the mother throughout her pregnancy, labour, delivery and breastfeeding.

How long should I take pre-conception supplements before trying to conceive?

Ideally a couple should take preconception supplementation for 3-4 months prior to conception which is the length of time it takes for sperm cells to generate and for eggs to mature before ovulation.
