PROfertil® female can optimize the maturation of the egg cell.

Each month, in between menstrual periods, an egg cell matures within a follicle in one of the two ovaries. If there is a disruption of this process, the egg maturation is delayed or it does not occur.

Among others, the following may cause disruption to the egg cell maturation process:

  • Hormonal balance disorders
  • Thyroid function disorders
  • Undernourishment or malnutrition
  • Overweight or obesity
  • Stress


Insufficient maturation of the egg cell

Potential problems: Oxidative stress and suboptimal supply of energy to the egg cell

Vitamin E protects the granulosa cells in the ovary thanks to its antioxidant effect. During cell maturation, the female body needs various essential nutrients such as selenium and coenzyme Q10, and this requirement increases above all for women with PCOS. It is similar with the supply of folic acid, which is important for regulating the homocysteine level. Excessively high homocysteine levels may interfere with follicle and egg cell maturation – a risk to which women with PCOS are particularly exposed.

Solution to the problem:

  • Oxidative balance
  • Optimized energy supply to the egg cell
  • Reduction of the homocysteine level

PROfertil® female provides support with:

  • Vitamin E
  • Selenium
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Folic acid
