From Fertility Benidorm, an assisted reproduction clinic in Alicante, we want to inform you about all the advances, benefits, advantages … that are emerging in the world of fertility and that can help you achieve your dream of starting a family.
It is commonly known that as we age, our chance of getting a pregnancy falls progressively. However, there are certain foods, routines … that can help, to some extent, fertility.
One of these elements that must be taken into account is vitamin D. Before it was only associated with skeletal health, but studies have shown that it has a great impact on the function of the female reproductive system, and its deficiency can be a cause of infertility, spontaneous abortions or failures of assisted reproduction treatments.
Did you know that more than half of Spanish women of reproductive age have low reserves of vitamin D? It is very important, to avoid this, be clear about the sources where this vitamin is found.
90% of the vitamin is produced in our body by solar radiation and, therefore, only 10% can be obtained from food. Fatty fish like salmon or tuna are the best sources, followed by cheese, egg yolk, and mushrooms.
WHAT EFFECTS DOES IT HAVE ON FERTILITY?
The main focus of vitamin D is the endometrium (the inner lining of the uterine cavity where embryos implant). So the function of vitamin D is to promote this implantation.
Its benefits do not stop there, it also includes the activation of some genes necessary for implantation, and the stimulation of progesterone production.
WHAT OTHER NEGATIVE EFFECTS DOES VITAMIN D LOW?
It has other effects associated with the female reproductive system such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, uterine fibroids and premature ovarian failure.
Several studies suggest that it can also cause problems in pregnancy and delivery.
Consuming an adequate amount of vitamin D, along with the latest treatments that we offer at Fertility Benidorm, will help you fulfill your dream of starting a family.
