The quantity of eggs that a female is born with diminishes with age, and unlike with male sperm, the female body cannot increase the egg count. In addition to quantity reducing with age, the quality of a woman's eggs also diminishes with age, which can be more detrimental to overall fertility than diminishing ovarian reserve. OvaBoost is an all-natural dietary supplement that contains a combination of vitamins and antioxidants including myo-inositol, folate, melatonin, coenzyme Q10, vitamin E, grapeseed extract and alpha-lipoic acid, which have been scientifically demonstrated to help improve egg health and optimize ovarian function. Ladies, the good news is that you can increase your egg quality!
What Can Be Hurting Your Eggs?
Age isnít the only factor that impacts egg quality, and even young women can have suboptimal egg health. Chronic exposure to environmental toxins, stress, poor diet, hormonal imbalances, and ovarian surgeries all take a toll on egg quality, making it difficult to conceive. Poor egg quality can lead to fertility issues in a few different ways. As egg quality decreases it is more difficult for sperm to fertilize the egg, implantation following fertilization is less likely to be successful, and miscarriages are more frequent due to chromosomal abnormalities.
Research indicates that egg cells are highly susceptible to harm from free radicals, the unstable oxygen molecules that are produced as the body breaks down toxins. And, to function in a healthy way, egg cells need to produce a tremendous amount of energy. OvaBoost was formulated by a team of medical experts to include key ingredients to protect egg cells from the damaging effects of free radicals and to help egg cells produce the energy they need for successful conception and implantation.*
How OvaBoost Works
OvaBoost has a unique formulation highlighted by a trio of ingredients - myo-inositol, folic acid, and melatonin - that has been scientifically proven to improve egg quality. Folic acid is already well-known for its ability to prevent neural tube defects, and it is recommended that all women of child-bearing age take in a sufficient amount of folic acid. But, recent research indicates that when folic acid is given in combination with two powerful antioxidants, myo-inositol and melatonin, egg quality is significantly improved in women undergoing IVF treatments. Recent research also confirms that myo-inositol works to improve insulin sensitivity, thereby helping to promote optimal ovarian function and cycle regularity in women with PCOS.
In addition, OvaBoost includes Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is also a powerful antioxidant. But, CoQ10 also plays an important role in energy production within egg cells. Once conception occurs, the amount of cell division that occurs to allow the egg to grown into an embryo and successfully implant into the wall of the uterus requires a tremendous amount of energy. CoQ10 works within the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cell) of the egg cell to help ensure that energy production is optimal.
Finally, OvaBoost contains three additional antioxidant ingredients, Vitamin E, grapeseed extract and alpha lipoic acid, to help ensure your egg cells are adequately protected from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Folate vs Synthetic Folic Acid
Due to the fundamental role that folic acid plays in reproductive health and pregnancy wellness, further explanation about this crucial vitamin is warranted. The words folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably to describe the vitamin known as vitamin B9. Folate is 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. While the research in this area is still emerging, many experts believe that folic acid is not sufficiently metabolized by some people. To help ensure optimal utilization of the folate in OvaBoost, OvaBoost features Quatrefolic, a form of folate that is more bioavailable than synthetic folic acid.

Who Should Take OvaBoost?
OvaBoost was designed specifically for trying-to-conceive women who are over the age of 30, and for women who have PCOS. However, OvaBoost is also intended to optimize egg quality and ovarian function in trying to conceive women of all ages. Even women with clock-work cycles can benefit from improving egg quality before conception. Grow your baby starting with the healthiest egg you can provide!
The formulation for OvaBoost was developed on the basis of a large, and ever-growing, body of scientific literature that explains the underlying causes of poor egg quality and ovarian dysfunction, and points to effective and promising natural ingredients for improving egg quality and ovarian function.
