DHEA and Q10
Women who’ve been diagnosed with Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) now have a silver lining in the form of DHEA and Q10 treatments. These anti-aging supplements arrest the affects of premature ovarian aging in women under the age of 38 and give more mature patients a better chance of falling pregnant.
What is DHEA?
DHEA is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body and is useful in assistive fertility treatments. Simply put, it raises the levels of testosterone, which is essential in early stages of follicle development. Studies have shown that a three to four month course of DHEA supplement improves the ovarian environment, and can help by:
• Increasing the number of eggs produced
• Improving egg and embryo quality
• Reducing chromosomal abnormalities
• Decreasing the risk of miscarriage
At Vitalab, we now offer this anti-aging treatment in conjunction with a coenzyme Q10 supplement.
Q10 is a powerful anti-oxidant that further enhances the quality of eggs, by supplying them with energy and protecting their DNA and mitochondrial structure.
