What is in OvaBoost?
The cornerstone of the OvaBoost formulation is a combination of three ingredients: melatonin, folate, and myo-inositol. These three ingredients, when given in combination, have been shown to be effective for supporting egg quality in women undergoing IVF. OvaBoost also contains a blend of antioxidant nutrients, including Vitamin E, grapeseed extract, and alpha lipoic acid to protect egg cells from free radical damage. Finally, OvaBoost contains CoQ10 to help ensure that energy production within the egg cell is optimal.
How much myo-inositol does OvaBoost contain?
OvaBoost provides 2 grams of myo-inositol in each daily dose, along with a handful of other ingredients that are important for supporting egg quality.
I notice that OvaBoost contains folate (as Quatrefolic™). What is the difference between folate and folic acid?
Although the words folate and folic acid are often used interchangeably to refer to Vitamin B9, they are not the exact same thing. Folate is the form of Vitamin B9 that naturally occurs in foods, while folic acid is the synthetic form of this vitamin that is used in fortified foods and many dietary supplements. Unfortunately, it is now believed that some women are not able to fully metabolize synthetic folic acid, and many experts are recommending that women supplement with the more bioavailable “methylfolate” forms of Vitamin B9. In keeping with these recommendations, OvaBoost features Quatrefolic™, which is a methylfolate form of Vitamin B9.
What is the daily dosage of OvaBoost?
Each bottle of OvaBoost contains 120 capsules, a one-month supply. We recommend taking four (4) capsules each day in divided dosages. We also recommend taking OvaBoost with food.
How long can I take OvaBoost?
We recommend that healthy women who are trying to conceive take OvaBoost for a minimum of 3 months as a way to support reproductive health and fertility.
If I am pregnant or breastfeeding, can I take OvaBoost?
Because the ingredients in OvaBoost are intended to support fertility and are not required during pregnancy or lactation, we do not recommend that you take OvaBoost during pregnancy or while you are breastfeeding. Please discontinue taking OvaBoost once pregnancy is confirmed with a urine or blood test.
Can I Take OvaBoost with other Fairhaven Health supplements?
Yes, OvaBoost can be taken with the following Fairhaven Health supplements: FertilAid for Women, FertileDetox, Fertile CM, PregnancyPlus Prenatal, PregnancyPlus Omega 3, PregnancyPlus Cal-Mag, and Evening Primrose Oil.
Does OvaBoost cause any side effects?
OvaBoost has no known side effects. However, as with any dietary supplement, if you have a pre-existing medical condition, we recommend that you discuss taking OvaBoost with your doctor.
Can I take OvaBoost with medications prescribed for depression and anxiety?
Please consult your physician before taking OvaBoost if you have been prescribed a medication for depression or anxiety, or if you are taking the herb St. John’s Wort, as large amounts of myo-inositol may have additive effects when taken along with drugs and herbs classified as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and selective serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI).
Can OvaBoost be taken with Metformin?
We do not expect any adverse interactions between OvaBoost and Metformin. But, we do recommend that you consult with your physician before adding any new dietary supplement if you are taking a prescription medication.
Can OvaBoost be taken with Clomid or Femara?
We do not expect any adverse interactions between OvaBoost and either Clomid or Femara. But, we do recommend that consult with your physician before adding any new dietary supplement if you are taking a prescription medication.
Is OvaBoost a prenatal vitamin?
OvaBoost is not a prenatal vitamin. It is designed to be taken by women who are actively trying-to-conceive for the purpose of improving egg quality and ovarian function, and includes select ingredients known to be helpful for this purpose. It DOES NOT contain a full prenatal vitamin. If you are taking OvaBoost, we recommend that you also take a dietary supplement that contains prenatal vitamin support, such as FertilAid for Women or PeaPod Prenatal.
Will OvaBoost alter my sleep patterns due the presence of melatonin in the product?
Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant compound that has been shown to be helpful for improving egg quality, especially when given in combination with folic acid and myo-inositol. In addition, melatonin is a frequently recommended natural ingredient for helping to restore normal sleep cycles in people with insomnia. OvaBoost contains a small amount of melatonin, similar to the amount given to trying-to-conceive women in clinical trials looking at the benefits of this natural ingredient for improving egg quality. When taken in the recommended manner (4 capsules per day in divided doses), we do not expect OvaBoost to impact your sleep cycle, or your day time energy levels or alertness. However, if you notice a change in your alertness or energy level, we recommend taking the all four capsules just before bed time.
How can I be assured that OvaBoost is a quality product?
OvaBoost is manufactured by Fairhaven Health, a trusted leader in the field of reproductive health, in the United States in a GMP-certified facility.
Should I keep OvaBoost out of the reach of children?
Yes. All dietary supplements and vitamins should be kept out of the reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
