You are not the only one ...
If you are finding getting pregnant more difficult than you expected you are not alone. In the UK around 1 in every 7 couples experience difficulty when trying to conceive. There are however a number of things that both you and your partner can do to optimise your chance to conceive successfully. Making even a small number of positive changes such as improving your diet and incorporating a healthy amount of exercise into your daily routine can have a massive impact on improving your fertility - whether you choose to try IVF or to go down the natural route.
Let’s focus on nutrition
When you are trying to conceive, you and your partner should aim to eat as healthily as possible and to incorporate a wide range of balanced, unprocessed foods into your diet. This is because eating well and taking in nutrients from natural fertility supplements will have a positive impact on a number of factors including your overall health, your ability to create healthy sperm and eggs and to create a well nourished lining of the uterus - which is vital to sustain a new life.
By flooding your body with nutrients you can have a positive impact on both the quality and health of your eggs. Your egg takes approximately 90 days to mature before ovulation and egg quality can be enhanced if it’s released into a healthy environment. The quality of your eggs can also be negatively affected if they are released into a body that is marinading in alcohol, smoke and poor diet. So if you are looking to conceive it is vital that you refrain from drinking alcohol or breathing in cigarette smoke. Stress also has a negative impact on the quality of your eggs - it is so important that when trying to conceive that you try techniques such as deep breathing, acupuncture and yoga that all help to lower stress levels.
The importance of well functioning ovaries
Your ovaries have two main functions:
- Your ovaries produce hormones which are essential for conception and also support a healthy pregnancy.
Is it possible to improve the quality of eggs?
Yes! And traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and natural fertility supplements can significantly boost egg quality. Contrary to popular belief women’s eggs do not have an expiration date and their quality responds to their surroundings. By increasing the amount of nutrients that you take in every day you will improve the flow of Blood to your ovaries, the amount of vital energy – or Qi – that circulates around your ovaries and your eggs will increase, and this will lead to the production of better eggs.
How do GinSen’s fertility supplements work?
Every month your body produces an egg and prepares the lining of the uterus – your womb – for implantation. Fertility supplements are very helpful for the optimum in the development of the egg, lining of the uterus and correct functioning of your hormonal system. Sufficient nutrients are also important for the correct development of your baby – Your approach to nutrition in the three months prior to conceiving will have an impact on the long-term health and development of your child. Sometimes it is not possible to take in all of the vital nutrients that we need through diet alone and this is where fertility supplements come in. GinSen’s fertility supplements are safe, natural and have been shown to promote fertility. One large scale study demonstrated that women taking supplements such as these improved their fertility by 200% over a 2 month period.
Our supplements have been specially formulated to gently optimise the correct functioning of the key organs involved with creating a new life – the Kidneys, Liver and Spleen. Infertility can be a symptom of an imbalance between any of these organs. In order to restore fertility it is essential that the correct balance is restored. Our Kidneys are the vital source from where the body’s yin and yang energies flow – the essential spark that creates new life. As we age our Kidney energy diminishes and this leads to a reduction in fertility. It is therefore important that we promote healthy kidney function which in turn will promote your fertility.
The smooth passage of Qi through the Liver is necessary for both ovulation and menstruation to occur. Women with Liver Qi stagnation – which is where the energy gets stuck as it flows through the Liver – often experience symptoms of bloating, irritability, breast tenderness and painful periods. Liver stagnation is associated with higher stress levels. The supplements help to reduce both stress levels and support your Liver’s ability to deal with stress.
The Spleen is responsible for regulating our hormones. When there is a lack of Spleen Qi – or Spleen Qi Deficiency – we may experience short menstrual cycles, premenstrual spotting, irregular periods, and hypothyroidism which make it difficult to conceive and to maintain a pregnancy. Our supplements help to gently nourish the Spleen and enable it to function correctly- our hormone levels will naturally improve and we will notice that our natural menstrual cycles will be restored.

How do fertility supplements work for men
It is well known that it takes two to tango – when we are looking to maximise our fertility it is important that we ensure that male fertility is enhanced as much as possible. Male health and age and nutrition all influence sperm health. After the age of 40 the quality of sperm decreases. There are many ways that we can reverse this decline – through improved nutrition, increased exercise and starting a course of TCM treatment.
Poor sperm health can be the result of many factors including Liver Qi Stagnation, Blood Stasis (where Blood does not circulate effectively) Yang Deficiency and Kidney Weaknesses.
