    4. Vitamins to Boost Fertility    

    Following are the vitamins that are helpful in boosting fertility in both men and women:

    • Zinc - The Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health mentions daily intake of 11 mg of zinc by men and 8 mg by women aids in developing ovulation and fertility in women, semen and testosterone production in men.

    • Iron - A healthy woman requires 18 Mg of iron daily and a pregnant woman requires 27 Mg to fulfill the demand of two lives. You can easily get iron from tofu, red meat, and dark leafy green vegetable as it makes hemoglobin, which helps in the smooth functioning of organs nourishing them with red blood cells.

(9)

    5. Exercise For Fertility and Strength to Carry Pregnancy

    People might be thinking that there will be a magical exercise which can turn around your problems automatically after following the regime for a few days, but the fact is that there is 'no' proved research that shows any specific exercise work for boosting fertility in men and women. Yet to make things work even the costly treatment like IVF has a requirement of a fit body for it to work fast and effortlessly. A maintained body adapts to new treatments and changes in the environment rapidly, but it should be kept in mind that vigorous exercises can cause damage to the body. Giving a quick tip for the problem like infertility ‘acupuncture ‘can do wonders as per researchers.
    Acupuncture helps in achieving successes along with treatments like IVF.
