Did you know that as we age so do our eggs? Improving egg quality is important since women are having baby in their mid-30s and into their 40s. Don’t get too alarmed because even though your eggs may be older there are so many things you can do to improve egg quality. Let’s talk about one of my favorite supplements for improving egg quality – Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.
CoQ10 is involved in the production of energy. CoQ10 helps fuel the mitochondria in our cells which are the power house of the cell that produce ATP or energy. As we age, our cells produce less energy and this negatively affects cell division and growth of the egg. So gets your eggs pumped up with extra energy and help egg quality by taking CoQ10.
Studies show CoQ10 helps not just women but men too. Along with helping women’s egg quality and growth, Co10 also helps with sperm production. In addition, women who went through IVF and were poor responders were able to increase pregnancy rates with their own eggs with supplementation of CoQ10.
Not all CoQ10 supplements are alike. In fact, CqoQ10 is hard to absorb so the right form is vital to your fertility success. May sure you are taking adequate amounts of CoQ10 for fertility and a highly absorbable source.
