If you’re a patient of mine, you know I’m always looking for ways to improve egg quality and increase your chances of pregnancy.
Interesting study just published in Human Reproduction suggests that resveratrol protects against age-associated infertility in mice. Scientists found that young mice fed with resveratrol for 12 months were able to reproduce, while mice who were not fed with resveratrol were unable to reproduce after the same amount of time.
We can’t extrapolate these findings to women quite yet because human studies haven’t been done. Resveratrol is available as a supplement for you to buy over the counter. No one really knows what the best dose would be in humans but you can buy it over the counter with the hope that the same improvements seen in mouse ovaries may be seen in human ovaries.
Always remember that blog posts are not a replacement for your personal physician’s recommendations. Before you add any supplements to your medication list, talk to your doctor first.

Hope this helps!
