We have worked with fertility doctors to develop vitamins to support fertility. Through our well researched formulas, we have favoured nutrients that ensure maximum absorption.
+fertimen contains optimal doses of 11 high quality essential nutrients, including folic acid, Coenzyme 10, selenium, Arginine, Carnitine and Taurine.
No milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, soy, peanuts, wheat yeast, gluten, corn, sodium, sugar, starch, artificial colours, preservatives or flavours.
Our +ferti range uses 5-MTHF folate (not synthetic folic acid) which is the most bioavailable folate available for food supplements. This formula ensures maximum absorption Read our article to find out more.
Folic acid is relevant for both women and men. Results from two independent studies* suggest that high doses of supplemental folate may help the body reduce the negative effects of environmental pollutants on fertility. It is also described as the vitamin of life.
Higher intakes of 5-MTHF have been correlated with a reduced risk of infertility, shorter time to pregnancy, lower risk of miscarriage and better outcomes from fertility treatments.

Selenium is important for male fertility as it is a powerful antioxidant known to stabilise the integrity of sperm flagella. Scientists have found that selenium deficiency can lead to reduced sperm quality, which is why it is important for men to optimise their selenium intake if they wish to conceive.
While most prenatal vitamin supplements use vitamin D from an animal source (lamb's wool), our +ferti range has been designed with vitamin D carefully extracted from seaweed to provide an easily absorbable vegan form of vitamin D3. Made with Vita-algae D, a sustainable, vegan form of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
Male infertility is the cause of conception failure in up to 80% of cases, mainly due to oxidative stress and low sperm quality. An Italian study has shown that the vitamin E content in the blood of infertile men is much lower than that of fertile men. Low concentrations of vitamin E are correlated here with morphologically abnormal and less mobile spermatozoa.
Oxidative stress and insufficient vitamin E intake should therefore be avoided, especially in cases of existing fertility decline or to optimise fertility when trying to have children.
An increased intake of vitamin E can significantly increase fertility in both men and women.
Vitamin E helps to protect cells from oxidative stress.

Arginine is one of the 20 amino acids that make up our proteins.
Taking L-Arginine is beneficial for both male and female fertility. It is often recommended for couples who are trying to conceive. L-Arginine assists the body in producing nitric oxide, which promotes blood flow to the genitals and ovaries.
It is an amino acid that can improve sperm development, produce better sperm and increase sperm count and motility.
Carnitine is present in very high concentrations in the epididymides, which is used to store and transport sperm. Carnitine could protect spermatozoa from oxidative damage and thus improve sperm quality. The results of a study including 52 men with idiopathic infertility confirm this hypothesis: the subjects were divided into two groups and received either clomiphene (an anti-estrogenic drug) or 2 g of L-carnitine per day for three months. Both substances increased the number and mobility of spermatozoa.

Taurine, an amino acid, is believed to play an essential role in sperm production.
The results of a study by the University of Tsukuba and Cornell University show that it is this amino acid, produced naturally in the male genital tract, that is believed to play an essential role in the ability of sperm to "swim" in the female reproductive tract.
Scientific studies now confirm that coenzyme Q10 supplementation can significantly improve sperm parameters.
Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant that is essential for protecting the body from free radical damage. It is present in the mitochondria (energy centres of cells), in the blood and in cell membranes, among other things.

Vitamin B12 ensures balanced, quality sex hormones. A sufficient level of this vitamin may help to maintain a large number of functional sperm cells.
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant for men and women who want to become parents. Studies have shown that taking vitamin C is effective in stimulating fertility.
According to a study published in the Journal of Fertility and Sterility, vitamin C is believed to improve sperm quality and prevent DNA damage in sperm.
According to several comparative studies, zinc has been found to have an effect on male reproductive health. This trace element is very present in the male reproductive system, as it has a key role in the synthesis of sperm (spermatogenesis) and testosterone. Studies have shown a significant increase in testosterone production and sperm motility in men who have received zinc supplementation.
