Suitable for men & women 2 capsules each a day. Should be commenced a minimum of 3 months before trying to conceive. Contains several vital supplements and vitamins including the following:

  • Folinic and Folic Acid: Helps to prevent neural tube defects (ie spinabifida, cleft palate and cleft lip) in babies. Folic acid is essential for efficient cell division and growth (including sperm and eggs)

In males it is associated with reduced sperm motility and normal shape. Deficiency (<50nmol/L and excess (>125nmol/L) of Vitamin D in males is also associated with poor sperm count. Vitamin D is essential for inducing the acrosome reaction (enables the sperm to penetrate the egg) during sperm and egg fusion
  • Iodine: Deficiency increases the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth
  • Zinc: Deficiency is associated with reduced sperm fertilisation capacity with supplementation increasing semen volume, progressive motility, and total normal sperm count
