Improve Egg Quality for Women Undergoing IVF

Natural Products that improve egg quality for fertility.

A study published last year showed that in women undergoing IVF, the number of high quality embryos was higher in the group given myo-inositol, folic acid and melatonin. This group was compared to a group given myo-insolitol and folic acid without melatonin.

Myo-inositol belongs to the vitamin B group of nutrients. Melatonin is an antioxidant secreted by the pineal gland. The group given melatonin + myo-inositol + folic acid had a significantly greater mean number of mature oocytes and higher mean number of quality embryos. Fertilization rates did not differ between the two groups but the clinical pregnancy rate and implantation rate tended to be higher in the group given the melatonin additionally.

Melatonin boosts the activity of myo-inositol and folic acid by improving oocyte quality and pregnancy outcome in women with a history of low oocyte quality.
