Tips for Fertility

Mental and physical health are important prerequisites for fertility, but so is your micronutrient status. Healthy micronutrient levels help mothers provide for themselves and for their children.

Kick Your Vices

Give your bad habits the boost and especially give up smoking (even passive smoke) as well as the consumption of alcohol, coffee and black tea. Phthalates or plasticizers that are found in plastic containers, cosmetics and some drugs, should be avoided as much as possible.

Get Enough Exercise

Movement and moderate exercise improves endurance, strengthens the immune system and promotes fertility. Don’t over do it though, too much exercise creates stress in your body, which can have a negative effect on well-being and fertility.

Take Time to Relax

Take time for relaxation exercises, massage or yoga lessons. Sleep enough and avoid physical and mental stress.

Balance Your Nutrition

Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as high-quality wholemeal and protein-rich dairy products. A varied, nutritious diet is important for physical health and can have a positive effect on fertility.

Micronutrient Deficiencies

The adequate supply of nutrients is necessary for good fertility, therefore it is necessary to replenish the body's nutrient storage before a planned pregnancy. According to the latest report on nutrition, it is particularly important to ensure a supply of folic acid, iron, zinc and vitamin D3.
