Pre-Conception Supplements for Women

What are the benefits of a pre-conception supplement?

The pre-conception supplement for women which is available from Midland Fertility is a patented food supplement that contains both L-Carnitine and Acetyl-l-Carnitine, two highly researched and important compounds that are clinically proven to improve egg quality. Both L-Carntine and Acetyl-l-Carnitine are considered to be of major importance when choosing antioxidant therapy to aid fertility (Cochrane, 2014).

Carnitines also help to restore and protect the function of the mitochondria which are the ‘power houses’ of the human body. Food is eaten and broken down in the body and turned into energy in the mitochondria, ready for the body to use for various processes. The ability of the mitochondria to function properly increases the amount of available energy for good follicular growth, cell division and embryonic development.
