CoQ10 and Fertility
Do you know if CoQ10 really help with infertility? I have secondary unexplained infertility. My husband and myself have been checked with no problems found. I have had 3 iui's and one result (first procedure) was a bfp but ended in a chemical pregnancy. One prior to the IUI's ended in a chemical as well. It has been a year now. I've started this CoQ10 and Chinese herbs and just looking for some kind of result. My husband and I both are 38.
CoQ10 is known to boost male and female infertility by helping the body make healthy eggs and sperm. Specifically CoQ10 helps prevent the damaging effects of free-radicles on sperm cell thus boosting sperm count and sperm motility. CoQ10 is also known to restore normal energy to the mitochondria (energy production organelles in the cells). CoQ10 is thought to help improve egg quality by supporting energy production which improves chromosomal separation during cell division.
CoQ10 may also improve male infertility. A study published in The Journal of Urology looked at 212 infertile men who took the 300 mg of CoQ10 for 30 weeks. The results were improved sperm count and motility.
CoQ10 levels naturally decline with age, that’s why it is important to supplement with CoQ10 as sperm and egg quality also declines with age. CoQ10 should be part of a good antioxidant supplementation protocol for all trying-to-conceive couples, especially if over 35.
If both you and your husband are 38 and trying to conceive, I would definitely recommend CoQ10 to help you make healthy eggs and sperm. The best way to have all the necessary natural super foods that improve egg and sperm is to drink daily fertility smoothie.
Rest assure that by adding this simple and easy daily habit alone you will make a huge difference in the quality of your eggs and sperm, thus facilitating the conception of a healthy baby soon.
