Irregular Ovulation and Insulin Resistance Don’t Have to Keep You from Your Dream of Baby
Too much insulin in the bloodstream can confuse the hormones that control ovulation and consequently affect a woman’s ability to ovulate normally. It’s not possible to get pregnant unless your body ovulates and sends an egg down the tube. Ovulating on a regular schedule is also important so that you and your partner know when to baby dance. Myo-Folate provides 2 grams of myo-inositol, an amount often used to support fertility and reproductive wellness.
- Myo-Inositol – a B-vitamin-like nutrient that is a needed by the body for insulin signaling. Myo-inositol also increases the insulin sensitivity of cells.
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. 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 folic acid, 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.
- Unlike other drinkable fertility mix supplements, Myo-Folate contains active methylfolate.
Common Infertility Cause #1 – Irregular Cycles and Ovulation
It’s a fact – women who know when they ovulate are much more likely to get pregnant. For many women, knowing when, or even if, they are ovulating can be very challenging. Hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance are determining factors in whether a woman can ovulate consistently and on a predictable schedule. The common thread between hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance, and ovarian cysts is insulin. So what does insulin have to do with fertility? Insulin can be thought of as the super traffic cop hormone. The health and function of the body depends on whether it and many other hormones stay organized, efficient, and balanced. Excess insulin has a cascading effect on other hormones. It can cause an increase in testosterone levels which can completely halt ovulation in a woman. Follicle Stimulating Hormones (FSH), Luteinizing Hormones (LH), Estrogen, and Progesterone all fall out of optimal levels when there is too much insulin. If a woman can ovulate in spite of all these hormonal imbalances, the quality of the egg released is frequently low which makes conception much more difficult.
Myo-Inositol has been studied extensively and found to play an important role in improving ovulation and overall fertility in women who are having issues related to insulin. Myo-Inositol is made naturally in the body and one of its important functions is to ensure that signals from the brain concerning insulin levels reach their respective receptors and bind to them. Additionally, a lack of myo-inositol can impact the ability of the cells to be sensitive to insulin. Supplying extra myo-inositol to women with hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance, or ovarian cysts helps correct the malfunctioning insulin pathways and reduce the signs and symptoms of insulin resistance, thereby improving fertility.
Common Infertility Cause #2 – Poor Egg Quality
When we talk about egg quality, we are referring to the percentage of total number of eggs that are considered normal. Given that a woman’s supply of eggs is finite and cannot be increased, the percentage of eggs that stay healthy and normal is critical. Each cycle, a woman’s available eggs enter the “egg lottery” to see which egg will be the chosen one that cycle. If an abnormal quality egg gets selected, the chances for a successful pregnancy that month go to near zero. Even if the egg manages to get fertilized, the chances of miscarriage are very high. Once an egg in the reserve becomes abnormal, it can never become normal again. There are lots of things that happen to our fragile eggs as we age. Most are unavoidable – fevers, stress, toxins, free radicals, and infections to name a few. The impact of a woman’s age on her egg quality is, unfortunately, quite predictable. By the time a woman is in her mid to late 30s, she will have more abnormal eggs in her reserve than normal eggs. Myo-inositol and folate are well-studied antioxidants that mitigate the effects of free radicals on eggs being stored in the ovarian reserve.
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 folate has greater impact towards helping women ovulate than folate 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.
