Pre-conception preparation is critical in order to address any potential fertility issues, as well as formulate the best environment for a strong and healthy baby. Even in otherwise healthy couples, it is always best to start this process at least three months before conception.
A woman’s fertility ties in closely to her digestive and hormone health. Healthy eating is essential, but so too is gut health in order to ensure the body is absorbing and utilising the nutrition it receives. Optimum hormones are paramount to reproduction – without balanced, healthy hormones, the female body does not function at its best.
Male health is also hugely important in the fertility equation. Healthy sperm require optimum nutrient levels, from good nutrition plus supplementation to address any micronutrient inadequacies.
