Here is a Study to prove that Vitamin C Increases Fertility.

“A moderate amount of supplemental vitamin C improves hormone levels and increases fertility in women with luteal phase defect” according to a study published in Fertility and Sterility.

150 women with luteal phase defect were enrolled in the current study. The participants were given 750mg of vitamin C per day or no treatment at all.

The group receiving vitamin C had an increase in progesterone levels. While the women receiving no treatment had no change in progesterone.

Also the pregnancy rate was significantly higher in the vitamin C group: 25% within six months, while only 11% of the untreated women became pregnant in the same time period.

Another study done by The University of Texas has shown that increasing the daily amount of Vitamin C in men, helps them produce more sperm, stronger sperm, and more mobile sperm. Sometimes the sperm count rose over ten times when men started ingesting the healthy amount of vitamin C.

Basically, because vitamin C is an antioxidant, it helps to protect the sperm and it’s DNA from damage thereby increasing the sperms quality. Sperm with damaged DNA can fail to thrive or fail to allow conception. And in some circumstances, it’s the damaged DNA that causes birth defects or a failure for the baby to thrive. It also helps to neutralize any chemicals or toxins found in the semen from things like environmental pollution, or smoking. (Another reason to quit before you try to conceive!) Along with it’s antioxidant properties, vitamin C seems to help sperm be less sticky, or clumped together, so that they are more mobile.

Foods high in Vitamin C:

  • red peppers (1/2 cup has 142 mg)
  • orange (70mg)
  • broccoli (1/2 cup has 62 mg)
  • kiwi (74 mg)
  • papaya (62 mg)
  • strawberries (5 of them have 51 mg)
