Gut Health and Fertility – Prebiotics for Fertility
| Fertile Gut
Congratulations on getting empowered! Knowledge is such a crucial step in improving your fertility, and when combined with effective lifestyle change, the science proves that you can greatly increase your chance of pregnancy success.
Ensuring you are well educated and informed about aspects of your fertility and treatment will also help alleviate stress of the 'unknown'. Knowledge is power and understanding the ins and out of your fertility and any assisted reproductive treatments will give you some control over the process, which at times can be unpredictable.
We are scientists, but we are also practitioners. This gives us the best combination of knowing how to source all the scientific evidence on fertility, how to interpret the evidence, and how to use it to boost fertility!
We have spent years researching how exercise impacts every aspect of the body, including our muscles which help regulate energy metabolism, our hormones which are crucial communicators to promote reproductive health, and our immune system which is like the commander in chief enabling fertile ground or calling all-out war on our body.
Gut Health, Prebiotics and Fertility
We also know what our resident microbiota – or gut friends as we like to call them - can do for fertility. Our gut microbiota is CENTRAL to fertility, and we can’t wait to share everything we have learnt in getting clients pregnant by making sure they have a #fertilegut.
Creating a Fertile Gut will help improve egg and sperm quality and create a receptive endometrium. It will also support a healthy pregnancy, so there has never been a better time to increase your microbiota diversity to benefit your reproductive health.
The proven ingredients in our prebiotic for fertility formulation, Fertile Gut, promote a diverse microbiota helping:
✅ Reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. Over 70% of women with unexplained infertility have elevated levels of oxidative stress and inflammation. Also seen in PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), male infertility and endometriosis.
✅ Regulate blood glucose improving insulin sensitivity. Essential for PCOS and part of the reason that inulin and other proven prebiotics in Fertile Gut are so effective for addressing underlying mechanisms of PCOS.
✅ Strengthen the immune system. A gut community that contains lots of beneficial microbes will be effective at fighting off pathogens- keeping you fighting fit for enhancing fertility!
✅ Improve nutrient absorption. A well-balanced ecosystem in your gut will extract more phytonutrients from food.
✅ Reduce toxin absorption and systemic exposure. Your microbiota modulates the absorption of toxic chemicals - a diverse, healthy microbiota will limit this absorption and toxicity.
✅ Modulate estrogen concentrations. There are over 60 species of bacteria in your gut that will regulate the levels of estrogen, influencing circulating concentrations. A disrupted microbiome is seen in endometriosis and PCOS so balancing your microbiota = a Fertile Gut.
✅ Increase testosterone concentrations. Greater diversity in your microbiome (fueled with prebiotics high in resistant starch as those included in Fertile Gut) = higher testosterone concentrations to promote quality sperm development.
✅ Strengthen the gut barrier to enhance functionality. Our proven prebiotics increase the expression of proteins that hold your gut cells together to make a strong barrier against any foreign antigens or pathogens (nasties).
In combination with our proven prebiotics, Fertile Gut is a source of plant-based Omega-3s which are essential for controlling inflammation. Omega-3s are used to make resolvins that quickly resolve inflammation. ➡️ Optimal dietary intake is associated with positive outcomes for women trying to conceive and those undergoing assisted reproductive treatments such as IVF.
What an amazing, all plant-based natural approach to improving your reproductive health that works, is safe for improving male and female preconception health, supports a healthy pregnancy and optimises post-natal wellbeing and breastfeeding.
We are so excited to have created such a ground-breaking prebiotic supplement to boost fertility and can't wait for you to improve your reproductive health!
