Vitamin C

30 November 2007 at 10:33 pm 3 comments

Vitamin C, a water soluble antioxidant, (ascorbic acid) has been shown to improve fertility in women with a luteal phase defect (diagnosed based on luteal phase <10 days and low serum progesterone). Women randomized to the treatment group took 750 mg of vitamin C per day. Not only did serum progesterone increase in 53% of the women, but 25% of them became pregnant during the study, as compared to only 10% who were not taking vitamin C.

Many prenatal vitamins, including Nature Made and Twinlab only have 100-120 mg of vitamin C. While this exceeds the RDA, supplementing with additional vitamin C (for example, with 750 mg as in the study) is considered very safe, since this is a water-soluble vitamin that will simply be eliminated in urine. In addition, quality vitamin C is inexpensive and readily available as a chewable
or as tablets.

    He believes that is a prime example of the type of behavior that only intensifies
    tinnitus. How it work is by naturally produces the enzyme that helps
    to rebalancing the fluids in your ear to gain a better hearing.

    These Melatonin health supplements could possibly
    hold back tinnitus or the ringing in the ears, quite possibly
    by means of making improvements to one’s sleeping pattern.

    Similar to apple cidar vinegar, red pepper cayenne is another herbal fix for hemorrhoids.
    Also, you must take care to have pleasure in an adequate amount of physical work.
    This is similar drug utilized as a decongestant in a few nasal sprays and oral cold medicines.
