Folic Acid And Fertility – Doing More Harm Than Good?

May 25, 2016

No woman who’s expecting, or expecting to expect, can avoid the advice, from any doctor or health site worth its salt: Take folic acid.

But with levels of infertility, multiple miscarriages and failed IVF attempts on the rise, we need to take a closer look at our genetics – the MTHFR gene could be the key to conception.

The MTHFR gene directly dictates if folic acid, folinic acid or 5-MTHF is the best way to improve your folate levels for successful conception.

The Methylation Pathway Made Easier

November 24, 2015

It seems to be little more than a modern day catch phrase but methylation is a vitally important process that happens inside each of us. Whether this pathway is working optimally or is under or over performing can dramatically impact our health and the possible development of an alarming amount of diseases.

Methylation is responsible for many of the most complex and vital processes in the body. The methylation pathways can be found to occur in each cell as well as the liver and the fluid supplying the brain, impacting every system in the body.

Methylation helps determine who we are, what we look like, and how we behave yet even more importantly, it is central to our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. Without methylation, we could not survive.

Are You a Mutant? Anxiety and MTHFR

March 13, 2015

In a honest and insightful article, journalist Elisa Black chronicled her journey with anxiety.

With a life- long experience of crippling anxiety and poor outcomes with a number of treatments, Black discovered the cause – a genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene.

Ongoing research implicates MTHFR genetic mutations for mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. Supplementing with specific B vitamins could go part of the way in modulating the expression of the MTHFR gene.

October 15, 2014

Around one in six Australian couples have problems with infertility, but you might not be aware that alcohol can affect your chances of successfully conceiving.

Even drinking less than one alcoholic beverage daily can disrupt a woman's menstrual cycle, while exceeding recommended alcohol limits can have a negative impact on sperm count and quality.

While the effects of moderate drinking before trying to conceive is not an issue, certainly if you are female, heavy drinking at an early age can adversely affect your later fertility.

How Healthy Is Your Sperm?

October 1, 2014

The importance of sperm health is often underestimated when trying to conceive.

Statistically 1 in 6 couples have difficulty trying to become pregnant. Problems with male fertility represents about 40% of the reason some couples have difficulty conceiving.

Unlike women, men are constantly producing sex cells. While a woman is born with all the eggs she’ll ever have, men produce sperm continually. What a man does on a daily basis to his body therefore can affect the sperm maturation process.
