We’re digging into the basic supplements you need to know about if you are TTC.
There's a lot of information about which supplements are right for fertility.
And like most women that I speak with you are probably taking A LOT of supplements.
But are these supplements optimizing or harming your fertility?
And taking supplements for years and not really knowing WHY or if they are helpful... doesn’t make sense either!
As you may know, we take a functional approach to fertility and while supplements are included in our customized protocols (which are based on testing) they are only a part of the equation.
There's no magic pill you can take that will out-supplement the basics - such as diet, sleep, movement and stress.
That’s why we wanted to talk about the BASIC supplements that we DO recommend for both men and women so that you don't waste time and money taking the wrong ones.
Today I'm welcoming Justine Altman back to the podcast.
Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile and a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility... your body is desperately trying to tell you something... focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) How to watch out for dyes, fillers and top allergens in your supplements
2) Our take on generalized fertility supplement recommendations (are they worth your money?) i.e. chaste tree, maca, royal jelly, bee pollen, zinc, iron
3) Our basic supplement recommendations (these are the supplements you need to be taking if you are TTC) - your partner is included too!
4) Our approach with supplements and why they are only part of the equation. We discuss the importance of diet, sleep, exercise and stress so that you can prepare your body in the best way for pregnancy success.

This can feel stressful but is designed to help us get to the root cause of your fertility issues and will help me to give you the best possible action plan at the end of the call. However, to reassure you – on this call we won’t be digging into the trauma associated with infertility/miscarriage/loss – rather we are focused on solutions and an ACTION PLAN as to how our Fab Fertile Method can help you get pregnant naturally.
