L-Glutathione has an important role when it comes to ovaries. Female egg cells develop slowly and gradually several months before ovulation, in a process known as folliculogenesis. During the process, cells surrounding the egg, known as follicles, replicate. Each one of these cells needs glutathione, which has a protective function. The very quality of egg cells is contingent on glutathione – one of the main protectors of ovaries. Research has shown that oocytes with higher intracellular glutathione levels produce healthier and stronger embryos. Further research has shown higher levels of intracellular glutathione in younger women. Increasing glutathione intake may potentially move “ovarian clock”. Researchers also suggest a possible link between glutathione deficiency and premature ovarian ageing or even with ovarian cancer. According to another study, higher glutathione levels in women undergoing IVF increased the chances of successful fertilization.
Tribulus Terrestris (90% saponins) promotes oocyte maturation, helps treat climacteric symptoms, menstrual pain and infertility. This herb positively affects female hormonal activity and reproductive organs by increasing the levels of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and estradiol. Using ground anchor increases the chances of proper egg cell maturation, which is essential when trying to conceive.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine helps treat inflammatory responses in the body. Inflammation can go undetected and adversely affect fertility. For example, endometritis (inflammation of endometrium) often cause a woman not being able to carry a pregnancy to term. A study conducted in 2007 confirmed the positive effects of NAC in the polycystic ovarian syndrome patients. Unfortunately, we cannot obtain NAC directly from our diet. However, the human body is able to produce it from proteins and you can also use dietary supplements to refill your body’s reserves.
Rhodiola 4:1 is generally considered an adaptogen, a substance used for its ability to improve one’s adaptation to ever-changing living conditions and for stress reduction. Its extract, called Rhodiolin, has sedative effects on the nervous system. It reduces the effect stress has on the reproductive functions and on the way hormones are released. Studies have shown that Rhodiola has a beneficial effect on the function of the thyroid gland and suprarenal glands, as well as oogenesis.
Coenzyme Q10 has a significant effect on female egg cells quality. Its production decreases with age, which has a negative impact on the protection of eggs against oxidative stress. Q10 supplementation can, therefore, reduce the risk and improve the quality of eggs. It can also increase the chances of conception in women resistant to Clostilbegyt. Sufficient amounts of coenzyme Q10 in the human body provide for fast hair and nail growth, skin renewal, muscular strength and less fatigue.
Muira puama 20:1 – clinical studies have shown that it helps treat sexual dysfunctions and infertility, and acts as a powerful aphrodisiac (boosts libido). Muira puama improves the quality of female orgasm, reduces menstrual pain and uncomfortable climacteric symptoms, and helps treat rheumatism. It can also help treat central nervous system diseases, reduce stress, improve attention span and short-term memory functions. It is effective against depression as well.
Green Tea (95% Catechins) has both antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
Carnitine increases fat burning and helps with weight reduction. It supports the neutralization of free radicals and the immune response of the body. Carnitine can also improve sperm production and heart condition.
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant involved in defence against free radicals. It boosts the immune system, enhances iron absorption and helps reduce fatigue.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) plays a key role in carbohydrate metabolism, boosts energy levels and beats fatigue.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is vital for metabolism. Riboflavin has anti-inflammatory properties and supports skin health.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) supports the function of the digestive system, skin and nerves. Niacin plays an important role in converting food into energy.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) is recommended as an additional treatment for infertility and leg cramps. It improves memory and focus, supports healing and hair growth.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) has a beneficial effect on protein metabolism. It is involved in cell replication and haematopoiesis, and supports normal function of the nervous and the immune system.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin) helps regulate the activity of more than 200 genes that are responsible for various biological processes in the human body. Besides that, it boosts the immune system.
Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) is important for germ layer development during pregnancy. It helps beat fatigue and exhaustion and supports mental well-being. B9 deficiency may cause birth defects, such as spina bifida, heart or urethral defects.
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is necessary for red blood cell production and cell replication. Cobalamin and folic acid help decrease homocysteine levels. B12 also improves memory, focus and mood.
Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) is too involved in the protection of cells against free radicals. It supports cell replication, muscle development and overall tissue formation.
CLA (Linoleic Acid) – research have shown that people with higher CLA intake improved their metabolism and reduced the risk of many diseases at the same time.
Rosehips support the body’s natural defence (boost the immune system) and help reduce free radicals.
Calcium is important for the nervous system. It helps prevent depression and beats fatigue and stress.
Magnesium is yet another mineral that helps beat fatigue and exhaustion. It is also important for the proper function of the muscular system and metabolism.
Phosphorus boosts hormone secretion and plays a significant role in nucleic acids synthesis.
Potassium increases nutrient absorption (e. g. glucose or amino acids).
Copper increases iron absorption, haemoglobin synthesis and red blood cell formation, and strengthens immunity.
Iron deficiency may cause insufficient oxygen supply at the tissue level and thus the lack of energy. Fatigue is often associated with overall weakness and irritability. Iron is especially important during period, during pregnancy and after giving birth.
Manganese is often used for the prevention of sterility and for balancing thyroid hormones.
L-Lysine has an important role in tissue regeneration, hormone production and enzyme production.
L-Methionine has detoxification and antioxidant properties.
L-Cysteine is a conditionally essential amino acid that boosts the liver’s cleansing ability and increases the production of L-Glutathione and L-Taurine.
L-Leucine (BCAA) is important for overall health.
L-Isoleucine (BCAA) balances and regulates blood sugar levels and energy levels. It is necessary for haemoglobin synthesis.
L-Valine (BCAA) maintains nitrogen balance and supports tissue regeneration.
