FH PRO for Women Supports Female Reproductive Wellness in Three Key Ways*
FH PRO for Women is a comprehensive dietary supplement with more than 30 ingredients, including Myo-inositol, d-chiro inositol, CoQ10, and folate. It is designed to support fertility and reproductive wellness in healthy women in three ways: by providing antioxidant support, by supporting healthy hormone balance, and by providing preconception vitamin and mineral support. FH PRO for Women also offers Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and zinc to support a healthy immune system while you are trying to conceive. Hear what Dr. Mark Sklar says about using FH Pro as part of a plan to support your fertility over age 35.
Benefit #1: FH PRO for Women Provides Antioxidant Support
FH PRO includes more than 10 nutrients that have an antioxidant activity or participate in antioxidant mechanisms, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, Vitamin E, melatonin, alpha-lipoic acid, grape seed extract, resveratrol, zinc, selenium, n-acetyl-cysteine, and CoQ10. FH PRO for Women also includes the combination of melatonin, Myo-inositol, and folate, a trio of ingredients that have been shown to improve egg quality in IVF patients.*
Benefit #2: FH PRO for Women Supports Healthy Hormone Balance*
FH PRO contains Myo-inositol and d-chiro inositol, nutrients that are believed to be supportive of healthy hormone balance and healthy ovulation. These two nutrients appear in FH PRO for Women in a 40:1 ratio (myo to d-chiro), the same ratio as they are found in the body.
Benefit #3: FH PRO for Women Provides Preconception Vitamin and Mineral Support
Over the past several decades, nutritional quality of the typical American diet has declined. Current diets contain more total calories, meat, cheese, added fats, refined grains, and added sugars, which reflects a poorer diet quality. Only about 30% of American women rate their diet quality as very good or excellent (source: How Americans Rate their Diet Quality: An Increasingly Realistic Perspective by Christian Gregory, Travis Smith and Minh Wendt). Taking a good vitamin and mineral supplement can help improve your nutritional status, which is good for your general health, your fertility, pregnancy wellness, and the health of your offspring.
FH PRO was formulated to include all of the B vitamins – not just B12 and folate like some competing products. The B vitamins are often referred to as a “complex” – these vitamins work together to support energy production and cell division, and should be supplemented together.
FH PRO also includes trace minerals, which are essential to the body as cofactors: iodine deficiency is becoming more common, and is needed for production of thyroid hormones; copper participates as an electron donor in biological reactions; manganese is essential for enzymes that protect the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cell) from free radicals; chromium helps regulate sugar metabolism by working insulin; and molybdenum is essential for virtually all life forms and helps convert sulfur into a useable form in the body.
The impact of Vitamin D for fertility is an active area of research. Several observational studies have reported a better in-vitro fertilization outcome in women with sufficient vitamin D levels (>30 ng/ml), which was mainly attributed to vitamin D effects on the endometrium. Research suggests that a minimum daily dose of 2000 IU is necessary to return vitamin D levels to a sufficient state after deficiency. FH PRO provides a daily dose of 2800 IU per day.
FH PRO also provides choline bitartrate. Choline is an essential nutrient that body makes in only small amounts. Choline is converted to betaine in the body, which assists in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, which prevents elevated homocysteine levels.
Quality and Transparency Guaranteed
Fairhaven Health has been a leading provider of dietary supplements to enhance fertility naturally since the early 2000s, and has an established reputation for providing quality and effective products. When formulating FH PRO, we spared no expense in ensuring we included the best forms of ingredients. For example, we provide Vitamin E as d-alpha tocopheryl succinate and mixed tocopherols – the most natural form of supplement Vitamin E. Similarly, we have included active forms of B Vitamins: Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin; Vitamin B5 as d-calcium pantothenate; riboflavin as riboflavin 5 phosphate; and thiamin as thiamin HCl and benfotiamine (a lipid-soluble, source of thiamin).
FH PRO also includes folate as methylfolate. Due to the important role that folic acid plays in reproductive health and pregnancy wellness, further explanation about this crucial vitamin is warranted. The words folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably to describe the vitamin known as vitamin B9. Folate is the form of this vitamin that naturally occurs in foods – dark green leafy vegetables are good sources of naturally occurring folate. Folic acid is the synthetic form of Vitamin B9 that is found in fortified foods and most dietary supplements. Although the research in this area is still emerging, many believe that folic acid is not sufficiently metabolized by some people. To help ensure utilization of the folate in this product, FH PRO features methylfolate, a form of Vitamin B9, that is more bioavailable than synthetic folic acid.
Unlike some competing products, FH PRO has no ingredients hidden in proprietary blends. FH PRO is gluten and dairy free, and is free of artificial colors or preservatives.
