FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Why should men & women take preconceptuals / prenatals?
Accumulating evidence from several large, published clinical studies shows a rapid decline in human fertility in recent decades. The reasons for the decline are poorly understood but much scientific evidence points to a multitude of environmental and modern lifestyle factors, as well as the poor nutritional content of food. The collective impact is believed to cause significant deficiencies of a number of antioxidants in the male and female reproductive system required for optimum development of the gametes. Long-term deficiency of these antioxidants in men may result in poor semen quality including sperm motility, concentration and morphology, and in women, it can result in degenerate or poor quality eggs. Of greater consequence is the adverse impact on sperm and egg DNA quality, potentially compromising the health of the future generations. It is important for women to continue to take prenatal and postnatal multivitamins to ensure optimum nutritional status throughout the pregnancy and lactation periods.
2. Why are Fertilix products personalized?
We are all individuals with our unique nutritional needs defined by many factors such as age. Over-supplementation is a real problem with the majority of fertility supplements as they treat everyone the same way. This raises much concern as over-supplementation can also adversely affect general health or even lead to impaired fertility. Fertilix formulations are personalized according to your age and fertility potential to provide correct dosing and minimize the risk of over-supplementation. In addition to ensuring appropriate dosing for optimal fertility, this also ensures couples only pay for what they need.
3. How do I know which formula is right for me?
We've developed a simple online algorithmic tool that takes into account your age, lifestyle factors and your fertility potential to determine the correct formula for you. Try it out at; www.fertilix.com/fit. You can also find out which formulation is right for you by reading the information displayed on our product boxes.
4. When should I start Fertilix?
For best results, start Fertilix Preconceptuals and Prenatals approximately 90 days before attempting to conceive to support the full spermatogenic cycle in men (~74 days) and follicular maturation process in women (~90 days). Women should continue Fertilix Prenatals throughout pregnancy and switch to Fertilix Postnatal after childbirth and throughout lactation.
5. Is there scientific or clinical evidence for Fertilix?
Fertilix® is the only product in the world’s market that has resulted from over a decade of rigorous scientific and clinical research. All Fertilix® formulations contain ingredients with strong scientific and clinical evidence in improving human fertility. Fertilix scientific design rationale and preclinical results are published by the Oxford University Press journal, Human Reproduction; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26732620. Fertilix® is the only dietary supplement to be published in this prestigious journal.
6. Why do Fertilix servings contain both capsules and softgels?
Fertilix® formulations were developed as capsules and softgels to avoid mixing the oil and water-soluble ingredients. This practice minimizes cross-chemical reactions between ingredients and ensures the highest product integrity.
7. Why are Fertilix products in blister cards and pouches?
The products are blister packed under oxygen-free nitrogen to protect the chemical integrity of all the ingredients from damage by air and moisture. Our manufacturing and packaging processes ensure long shelf-life for all our products.
8. Are the taste and odor of Fertilix dietary supplements normal?
Yes, absolutely. You may experience a mild, unpleasant or vinegar-like odor, upon opening the packaging, or taste when taking the products. The vinegar-like odor and taste is natural, and an inherent characteristic of the carnitine ingredients used in the formulations. The sealed packaging is designed to exclude air and light to ensure high product integrity and long shelf-life. Overtime, the airtight packaging traps odor from the carnitines. This may cause minor inconvenience or discomfort to some of our customers but allows us to avoid the use of synthetic odor eliminators or taste masking agents and thus providing safer and environmentally friendly products at reduced costs. We recommend taking our products with either fruit juice or milk if you wish to avoid the natural taste of our products.
9. Can I take Fertilix with other supplements?
