Myo-Inositol and Folate – Clinically Proven to Regulate Cycles and Improve Egg Quality
Myo-Folate Drink Mix for Fertility is an exciting, new blend of two well-studied members of the B Vitamin Family in a drinkable powder mix that is gentle on the stomach. Clinical studies have shown that the combination of Myo-Inositol and Folic Acid can improve ovulation frequency and regularity, enhance egg quality, and prepare the body to support the cell growth needed in pregnancy. Regular and frequent cycles are an important factor in getting pregnant. Women who want to get pregnant but have long or irregular cycles have decreased opportunities, and therefore chances, of achieving their dream. Age is another factor in getting pregnant – changes to the ovaries and eggs as we age make it harder for some women to become pregnant. MyoFolate supports hormone balance, ovarian function, and egg quality, and can be taken by women with irregular or regular cycles, women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and those women who are proactively wanting to improve egg health before conception.
Myo-Folate provides 2000 mg of myo-inositol per serving, an amount often used to support fertility and reproductive wellness. Myo-inositol, a naturally occurring member of the B Vitamin Family, is produced from glucose by the human body and acts in the body as an insulin-sensitizing agent. PCOS, a leading cause of irregular cycles, is associated with insulin resistance. Consequently, the use of myo-inositol as an insulin-sensitizing therapy has been clinically shown to regulate cycles.

OBGYNs encourage women to consider a natural approach as a first step in their journey to overcome difficulties conceiving. Studies have shown that the combination of myo-inositol and folic acid has greater impact towards helping women ovulate than folic acid alone. Clinical research also indicates that the combination can improve the number, size, and overall maturity of eggs which can be a significant issue as women tend to wait until later in life to have children. Myo-Folate was formulated based on the science of using two powerful B Family Vitamins to enhance fertility naturally.
Why Choose Folate over Folic Acid for Your Vitamin B9 Needs?
The words folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably to describe the vitamin known as vitamin B9, despite the fact that they are not exactly the same thing. Generally speaking, folate is the term used to describe the form of this vitamin that naturally occurs in foods – dark, green leafy vegetables are good sources of naturally occurring folate. Folic acid is the synthetic form of vitamin B9 that is found in fortified foods and most dietary supplements. And, to add further confusion to this discussion, the term methylfolate is cropping up with increased frequency. Methylfolate, known scientifically as 5-MTHF, is the active form of Vitamin B9 that is used in the body for many processes and reactions. Before your body can utilize the folic acid you ingest, and to some extent the folate you get from eating vegetables, it must be converted to methylfolate. Up to a whopping 60% of the population have a defect in their MTHFR gene which prevents the body from converting folic acid to active methylfolate. Most people have no way of knowing if they are absorbing their B Vitamins or are being blocked by the MTHFR gene defect. Doctors are now testing patients with greater frequency to determine if the MTHFR gene defect is present and blocking this critical conversion. Unlike other drinkable fertility mix supplements, the folic acid in Myo-Folate is active methylfolate, as the patented, highly bioavailable ingredient known as Quatrefolic. For more information on methylfolate, read the article by Dr. Chris Melitis.
The folate in Myo-Folate not only works in conjunction with myo-inositol to regulate cycles and improve egg health, it also helps prevent birth defects that can come from neural tube defects. Vitamin B9 is recommended for the general population but especially for any woman in her child-bearing years, regardless of whether she is trying to conceive at the time.

Can I Take Myo-Folate if I Have PCOS?

What Can I Expect with Myo-Folate if I Have a Regular Cycle Already?
Women with regular cycles typically don’t experience any changes when taking the B Family Vitamins in Myo-Folate, and if they do, these adjustments are minor and temporary.
Can I Use Myo-Folate If I Am Considering IVF or Other ART?
Myo-Folate contains two members of the B Family of Vitamins and no herbs. Many doctors advise their patients who are undergoing IVF or other Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) against using herbal ingredients for fertility enhancement. The reason for this is because doctors often prescribe pharmaceuticals to stimulate and regulate hormones. These pharmaceuticals can overlap with fertility herbs, which function in much the same way, and create unpredictable results. If you are heading down the IVF path, we recommend using one of our herb-free solutions such as Myo-Folate, OvaBoost, or FH PRO for Women, an antioxidant-based fertility pill recommended by fertility specialists.
