Here are 5 basic facts regarding vitamin B12 and its importance in solving fertility problems:

Vitamin B12 rich foods

B12 is one of those vitamins that can be easily found in a lot of animal foods, such as beef liver, salmon, trout, tuna or clams, but also in plain yogurt and milk. This vitamin is also widely encountered in cereals, so you should not have any problems adapting your diet to ensure your daily intake.

Balances your hormones

If you take your daily dose of vitamin B12, fertility is just a matter of time, as this vitamin helps you balance your hormones. Of course, this means that you have to give up bad habits, such as drinking caffeine and alcohol beverages, as well as pumping too much sugar or proteins into your body. But getting pregnant is worth this sacrifice.

Vitamin B12 and male fertility

If your husband or partner is suffering from a vitamin B12 deficiency, that means his sperm count is affected, so he is likely to have fertility problems. So, vitamin B12 is not essential only for women, but also for men.

Lowers miscarriage

The deficiency of vitamin B12 is one of the most common causes of infertility, but it does not necessarily prevent the installation of pregnancy. However, studies show that, if your body does not get enough vitamin B12, even if you get pregnant, the risks for miscarriage to occur are higher than in the case of women who started taking vitamin B12 before getting pregnant.

Vitamin B12 and pregnancy

Vitamin B12 should be taken by any couple trying to conceive, as it prevents and treats infertility, but it is equally efficient during pregnancy, as it help the baby develop normally, reducing the risks for fetal development problems, abnormalities, autism or mental retardation.

Basically, vitamin B12 is a solution in hand for many problems, despite the fact that people do not usually grant it the deserved attention. It can be found in many common foods and also in natural and medical supplements, it helps both men and women, and it is useful both before and during pregnancy, increasing fertility levels and ensuring a healthy pregnancy.
