Supplements for fertility

(With prenatal or multi vitamins, please make sure you purchase one with folate or methyl folate, NOT folic acid. Not every site I’ve listed here follows those guidelines, but they are listed because of other items they provide.)

Natural Fertility Shop – Herbal remedies and supplements for healthy fertility.

Seeking Health – Vitamins and prenatals containing methyl B vitamins (specifically methyl folate)

Thorne Research Basic Prenatal – prenatal with folate instead of folic acid)

Beeyoutiful – Boost your health by checking out the herbal supplements and nutritional supplements as well as an all-natural progesterone cream. I’ve also used their liquid prenatal (which has folate!) as well as their liquid folate.

Trilight Health – Offering liquid herbal formulas.

FairHaven Health – supplements, basal thermometers, and test strips among other items.

iHerb – Herbs, vitamins, and skin care  – they carry a lot of different products! I tend to stick to the loose herbs versus the capsules when I buy herbs.  (new customers can save $10 off a $40 order by using this link –> http://www.iherb.com/?rcode=REJ007)

 

Books for fertility (and dealing with infertility/loss)
