Natural Fertility Boosters

For centuries, people have been using a variety of natural herbs and other natural products to boost fertility. In some cases, this amounted to little more than folklore. In other cases, however, we’re discovering that some of those herbal remedies may actually be natural fertility boosters. In fact, there are a number of natural ways that both men and women can increase their chances of conceiving a child through natural fertility aids.

For men, there are some specific natural remedies that are worth trying. One recent study suggests that both sperm quality and motility – the ability of the sperm to swim forward – can be helped significantly with some natural products. The most important ingredients in this study were zinc and folic acid, as well as an antioxidant and l-carnitine. Another recent study shows that increasing zinc and folic acid can increase sperm count an average of 74 percent when a man takes the supplement for six months.

For women, there are several natural fertility boosters, as well. In one study, which looked at a particular fertility supplement, the results were impressive. This study showed a measurable increase in progesterone, which is used to be able to assess ovulation. This supplement contained folic acide, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Iron magnesium, selenium, and more. Chasteberry is another important supplement for women that may naturally help with fertility. One study suggested that women who took this kind of supplement were almost twice as successful in becoming pregnant over a six month period.

There are a variety of ways you can get these natural fertility boosters. Some of the ingredients are available in fertility supplements. Ideally, you’ll take in these nutrients in a natural format, through the foods you eat. That’s not always realistic, of course, and so supplements are often the answer.

Maca root is another natural fertility booster. Maca has been shown to help with conception for men and women. This “superfood” contains many of the ingredients we’ve talked about here, and has been used for centuries to help couples get pregnant.
