OvaBoost FAQ

How can I tell if my egg quality is low?

Diminishing egg quality is a natural consequence of aging, so if you are over 30 years old, your egg quality is probably not as great as it used to be. Additionally, recent research has validated the fact that chronic exposure to everyday environmental toxins decreases sperm health in men and causes poor egg quality and menstrual cycle abnormalities in women. If you have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), your egg quality is more likely to be sub-optimal. One way to assess the quality of your eggs is to test your FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels. FSH is the hormone responsible for encouraging the ovaries to produce a mature egg. Higher than normal levels of FSH can suggest a fertility issue, such as diminished ovarian reserve or low egg quality.

Why is it important for me to be concerned about the quality of my eggs?

When evaluating your overall fertility, the quality of your eggs is as important, if not more important, than the quantity of eggs (known as your ovarian reserve) you possess. Your egg quality naturally declines as you age, but this decline can be hastened by everyday environmental toxins, stress, poor diet, hormonal imbalances and/other reproductive health issues. Poor egg quality results in decreased fertility in a number of ways: sperm have difficulty penetrating the egg for fertilization, implantation is less likely to be successful, and the chance of miscarriage increases due to genetic abnormalities.

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 improving egg quality. 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 promoting 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.

What is the price of OvaBoost?

OvaBoost costs $29.95 per bottle, which is a one-month supply. We offer discounts on this product when multiple bottles are purchased at the same time.

How quickly will OvaBoost work to increase my egg quality?

The ingredients in OvaBoost will begin to work immediately to improve egg quality and ovarian function. And, while results may vary from one woman to the next, we expect to see improvements in egg quality, ovarian function, and cycle regularity within 3 months.

How long can I take OvaBoost?

We recommend taking OvaBoost for a minimum of 3 months, or as long as you are actively trying to conceive. OvaBoost can be discontinued once pregnancy has been confirmed.

If I am pregnant or breastfeeding, can I take OvaBoost?

Because the ingredients in OvaBoost are intended to increase fertility and to aid conception 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.

Is it safe to take OvaBoost with other Fairhaven Health supplements?

Yes, OvaBoost can be taken safely 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.

Should I take OvaBoost or FertilAid for Women or both to help restore cycle regularity?

We recommend that all trying-to-conceive women who suffer from irregular cycles take FertilAid for Women. We suggest taking OvaBoost along with FertilAid for Women to women who are over 30 years old, have PCOS, have elevated FSH levels, or have a history of ovarian surgery.

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.

I have PCOS. Will OvaBoost help me?

If you have been diagnosed with PCOS, you have likely been told that the cells in your body are not very sensitive to insulin, a condition known as “insulin resistance”. When your cells are resistant to insulin, you tend to have higher than normal levels of insulin circulating in your bloodstream. And, for some unknown reason, these high levels of insulin lead to the production of higher than normal amounts of male hormones, such as testosterone, which can interfere with ovulation and menstruation. OvaBoost contains myo-inositol, which has been scientifically proven to improve insulin sensitivity in women with PCOS. Many fertility experts believe that by supplementing with myo-inositol, insulin sensitivity is improved, hormone balance is restored, and fertility is increased in women with PCOS.

I don’t have PCOS, but I have been told my egg quality is poor. Will OvaBoost help me?

Yes, OvaBoost is intended to help improve egg quality in all women who are actively trying to conceive, whether or not they have been diagnosed with PCOS.

How can I be assured that OvaBoost is a quality product?

OvaBoost was formulated by a team of medical experts to include only those natural ingredients that have been best demonstrated in the scientific literature to improve egg quality and ovarian function. This product 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.
