Here are the top 4 essential vitamins to increase fertility in women.
The cervical mucus has the role of helping the sperm survive once arrived in the woman’s body. Vitamin C increases the amount of water in the cervical mucus, making it a friendly environment for the sperm. Vitamin C can be found in citrus, sweet peppers, broccoli and other fresh fruits and vegetables.
Folic acid (or vitamin B9) is essential in the period prior to and right after a woman becomes pregnant, to prevent miscarriage or congenital malformations, like neural tube defects. Folic acid can be found in leafy green vegetables, sunflower seeds and liver.
Vitamin B6 helps prevent LPD (Luteal Phase Defect) by increasing the length of the Luteal Phase. It restores the hormonal balance and regulates progesterone levels. Some of the food sources of vitamin B6 are: tuna, turkey, salmon, spinach, garlic, cabbage, broccoli and bananas.
Insufficient levels of vitamin D can lead to infertility. This vitamin helps the body create sex hormones and regulates the menstrual cycle. Vitamin D can be obtained through consumption of dairy products or exposure to sunlight.

Now, let’s see 4 essential vitamins to increase fertility in men:
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that makes sperm more fertile and protects sperm cell membranes. It is usually prescribed when the female partner is undergoing an IVF treatment. Wheat germ oil, almonds, sunflower seeds and oil are important sources of vitamin E.
Very beneficial for female fertility, vitamin C plays a big role in sperm quality as well and prevents the damage of the DNA within it. If you smoke, the antioxidant properties of Vitamin C will counteract the chemicals from the semen. Vitamin C also helps with low sperm motility and abnormal shaped sperm, by reducing sperm agglutination, which occurs when sperm cells clump together.
Folic acid is also good for male fertility, as it aids maintaining the quality and quantity of the sperm. High levels of folic acid lower the frequency of sperm abnormalities.
Vitamin B12 helps men with low sperm counts and improves the quality of the sperm. Combine it with calcium for better absorption. Oysters, fish, crab, lobster, beef, cheese and eggs are rich in vitamin B12.
Combining all of the above-mentioned vitamins as well as other fertility-enhancing minerals and herbs into one easy-to-take tablet per day is the fertility supplement Fertibella Conceiveeasy for Men.
