How it Works Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold prepares the body for conception. Some of the key nutrients include: Antioxidants – are important for women attempting conception. Chances of conception increase in women with higher levels of antioxidants in the fluid surrounding their reproductive organs. CoQ10 – Levels of CoQ10 decrease with age. Adequate levels of CoQ10 in the expectant mother are associated with healthy early stages of pregnancy. Low levels of CoQ10 in newly pregnant women are associated with unhealthy contractions of the womb. Iodine – is important for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland as it is an essential nutrient required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones affect almost every cell in the body and regulate oxygen use, metabolic rate and cellular metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important for the normal development of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems of children. Iodine plays an important role in normal brain development, eyesight and hearing. Tuna oil – is a source of omega-3 long chain fatty acids. DHA is particularly important for the normal function of the brain and nerves, and for development of normal eyesight. Folic acid – plays a role in DNA and RNA synthesis, and is therefore critical in cellular division. In order to divide properly cells need adequate folate. The development and growth of a foetus involve constant cell division, which can lead to an increase in the mother’s demand for folate. Vitamin C – is needed for hormone production and may help to stimulate normal ovulation. The developing egg needs adequate vitamin C to mature. The ovary contains one of the largest ascorbic acid stores in the body. Vitamin D3 – is best known for its ability to stimulate the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the small intestine. Vitamin D is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones and muscles. Low vitamin D levels are common in women during pregnancy. Iron – a component of haemoglobin, an essential component of red blood cells. Haemoglobin transports oxygen in the body. Having optimal haemoglobin levels helps the cells of the body receive sufficient oxygen. Early foetal brain development requires adequate iron. As many as one quarter of Australian women have below recommended intakes of iron prior to conception. Zinc – essential to good health as it is involved in many enzyme reactions in every cell of the body. Adequate levels of zinc support normal conception and are essential for a healthy baby’s normal growth and development. B group vitamins – play an essential role in the production of energy and support normal conception.
