Fertility above 35

COQ10: The most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10, known as Ubiquinol, has been shown through several studies to improve both egg and sperm health, while playing a key role in protecting DNA at a cellular level.

CoQ10 is considered by many to be the miracle nutrient because almost every living cell relies on it for energy production. An important fact that you may not know is that the body requires certain levels of CoQ10 to function properly. If these blood levels drop, the body becomes more susceptible to disease and premature aging.

IRON: Iron is the oxygen carrying component in red blood cells. It is also used to make haemoglobin. And decreased amount of haemoglobin is directly tied up with your immune system. Iron deficiency is also linked with miscarriage.

LIPOIC ACID FOR FERTILITY

It is also an antioxidant but its unique property is what we need to look at. It regenerates all of the other antioxidants Vitamins E, C, CoQ10 and Glutathione for the body.

Of the 250 supplements that Ray Kurzweil takes daily, which are the most important and have the most significant evidence to support their usa... Has Ray Kurzweil noticed any changes, positive or negative, from taking hundreds of pills daily? What does Ray Kurzweil's diet and lifestyle look like? Why does Ray Kurzweil wear so many rings? Phil Tompson Phil Tompson 3.7k Views Hi

My advice is to take a look at this first: Cobra Labs The Ripper Weight Loss Supplement, Razor Lime, 30 Servings, 0.33 Pound: Health & Personal Care

read bellow why?!

Immortality seeking Google exec Ray Kurzweil swallows 150 vitamins a day as part of his health regimen.

The futurist, author, and inventor is currently the search engine giant’s director of engineering and is working on an artificial intelligence initiative.

He has also predicted that nanotechnology will allow us to treat diseases from within our bodies thanks to tiny robots.

In an interview with MacLeans, Kurzweil asserted that “outdated software” is running our bodies, and needs to be reprogrammed to increase life expectancy. “Life expectancy was 20 a thousand years ago; 37, 200 years ago. We’re now able to reprogram health and medicine as software, and that [pace is] going to continue to accelerate.”

As far as his daily intake of supplements, Kurzweil explained that he takes “About 150 a day. I test myself on a regular basis, and it’s working. All my measurements are in ideal ranges. I scan my arteries to see if I have plaque buildup, and I have no atherosclerosis. I come out younger on biological aging tests. So far, so good. But this program is not designed to last a very long time. This program is what we call bridge one. The goal is to get to bridge two: the biotechnology revolution, where we can reprogram biology away from disease. And that is not the end-all either.”

This regimen is designed to get to what he termed bridge three, where nanobots will boost the immune system and fend off disease.

According to London’s Daily Mail, bridge one is “Stay as healthy as possible with diet and exercise and current medicine.”

In a 2012 interview with PBS, Kurzweil insisted that “We will get to a point 15 years from now where, according to my models, we will be adding more than a year every year to your remaining life expectancy, where the sands of time are running in rather than running out, where your remaining life expectancy actually stretches out as time goes by.” PBS reported that Kurzweil’s “cholesterol, for example, has dropped from 280 to 100, thanks to a strict regimen of diet, exercise, statin drugs and nutritional supplements. He takes about 150 pills a day. And then there are injections and I.V. drips for the more exotic substances.”

Do you think Ray Kurzweil’s anti-aging, life expansion predictions have validity or are overly optimistic?

My understanding is alot are to help with his medical condition. His father died at a young age and he was slated for the same. He's managed to beat the odds with some Kurweil-ian proactive research. He's attached to an online supplements site "Ray & Terry's" that provides customized supplement regimens based on age, health, habits etc. Not sure if the site is curated by him or one of many staff projects. Read his "Transcend" book to get more info. It has some good health advice.

Iron and fertility

pumping up your iron levels while trying to conceive (TTC). As you’ve heard, there does seem to be a link between iron and fertility — in fact, research shows that low iron levels could play a role in infertility. Researchers have found that women who take iron supplements have, on average, 40 percent less risk of ovulatory infertility (an inability to produce healthy baby-making eggs) than those who don’t take iron supplements. And the higher the dose, the lower their risk. Women who take the highest doses — more than 41 mg a day — decrease their risk by more than 62 percent!

Fertility information Vitamin D

Women about to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) can provide valuable insight into the role of vitamin D, since it is possible to examine each aspect of reproduction, from egg development to implantation of the embryo. A recent study found that women with higher vitamin D levels were significantly more likely to achieve pregnancy from IVF compared to women with lower levels of vitamin D.# This study was repeated in another IVF center, which confirmed a four-fold difference in pregnancy rates between vitamin D replete and deficient women.# In another study looking at the recipients of donor eggs, vitamin D levels in the recipients were associated with clinical pregnancy, emphasizing that the critical role of vitamin D in pregnancy may be within the uterus.# Though more research is needed, it appears that vitamin D levels are associated with IVF success, and that its most important role in reproduction may be at the uterine lining. No studies have yet evaluted whether giving vitamin D improves IVF outcomes. But the data that does exist at this point suggests that a role for vitamin D supplementation may exist as a means of improving one’s natural fertility both among the fertile and the infertile.

Does heating (boiling, baking) foods like vegetables destroy vitamins?

The best way to get the most out of your vegetables is to enjoy them in a variety of ways -- raw, steamed, boiled, baked and grilled. If you eat a variety of fruits and vegetables on a regular basis, you don't have to worry about the cooking method.

It’s true that cooking methods alter the nutritional composition of fruits and vegetables, but that’s not always a bad thing.

Depending on the method used, loss of vitamin C during home cooking typically can range from 15 percent to 55 percent, according to a review by researchers at the University of California, Davis. Interestingly, vitamin C levels often are higher in frozen produce compared with fresh produce, likely because vitamin C levels can degrade during the storage and transport of fresh produce.

Fat-soluble compounds like vitamins A, D, E and K and the antioxidant compounds called carotenoids fare better during cooking and processing.

A report in The Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry concluded that over all, boiling was better for carrots, zucchini and broccoli than steaming, frying or serving them raw. Frying vegetables was by far the worst method for preserving nutrients.

Cooking removes about two-thirds of the vitamin C in fresh spinach.

Several studies have shown that while cooking can degrade some nutrients, it can enhance the availability of others. As a result, no single cooking or preparation method is best, and that includes eating vegetables raw.

Many people believe that raw vegetables are packed with more nutrition than cooked vegetables, but, again, it depends on the type of nutrient.

Germany TOMATO: One study of 200 people in Germany who ate a raw food diet found that they had higher levels of beta carotene, but their plasma lycopene levels were well below average.

That’s likely because fresh, uncooked tomatoes actually have lower lycopene content than cooked or processed tomatoes. Cooking breaks down the thick cell walls of many plants, releasing the nutrients stored in them.

Water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and vitamin B and a group of nutrients called polyphenolics seem to be the most vulnerable to degradation in processing and cooking.

Canned peas and carrots lose 85 to 95 percent of their natural Vitamin C. After six months, another study showed that frozen cherries lost as much as 50 percent of anthocyanins, the nutrients found in the dark pigments of fruits and vegetables.

But when it comes to cooking vegetables, there are always tradeoffs. A method may enhance the availability of one nutrient while degrading another. Boiling carrots, for instance, significantly increases measurable carotenoid levels compared with raw carrots. However, raw carrots have far more polyphenols, which disappear once you start cooking them.

And while many people think microwaving is bad for food, vegetables cooked in a microwave may have a higher concentration of certain vitamins. A March 2007 study looked at the effects of boiling, steaming, microwaving and pressure cooking on the nutrients in broccoli. Steaming and boiling caused a 22 percent to 34 percent loss of vitamin C. Microwaved and pressure-cooked vegetables retained 90 percent of their vitamin C.

The bottom line is that no one cooking or preparation method is superior for preserving 100 percent of the nutrients in a vegetable. And since the best vegetables are the ones you will actually eat, taste should also be factored in when deciding on a cooking method.

FSH Levels

There is no single “normal” value for a basal FSH level. The value varies from clinic to clinic and varies based on the assay used. GOOD when the FSH level to be < 10 mIU/mL. A value between 10 and 15 mIU/mL signifies diminished ovarian reserve. A value > 15 mIU/mL (and definitely > 20 mIU/mL) signifies severely diminished ovarian reserve and a pregnancy rate with IVF of < 1%. An elevated FSH level does not rule out the possibility of a spontaneous pregnancy. InVia Fertility Specialists has had several patients with an elevated FSH levels who have conceived on their own! We do NOT use an elevated FSH level as the sole criteria to deny treatment to a patient.

Apr 12, 2016 00:15

Hormone Levels and Fertility

FSH levels during the follicular and luteal phase should range between 5 and 20 IU/L (international units per liter). Right before ovulation during the mid-cycle peak, FSH levels should be between 30 and 50 IU/L. If a woman is post-menopausal, her FSH levels will be naturally higher, at 60 IU/L or more.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), TEST: Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS: 3-20 mIU/ml -Values under 6 is considered excellent, 6-9 is good, 9-10 fair, 10-13 diminished reserve, 13+ very hard to stimulate. FSH is mostly used as a way to determine the level of ovarian reserve. When testing for PCOS, the LH: FSH ratio can be used in the diagnosis. The ratio is usually close to 1:1, but if the LH is higher, it is one possible indication of PCOS.

Estradiol (E2), TEST: Day 3,NORMAL LEVELS: 25-75 pg/ml. Abnormally high levels on day 3 may indicate the presence of a functional cyst or diminished ovarian reserve.

Estradiol (E2) Day 4-5 of meds NORMAL LEVELS 100+ pg/ml or 2x Day 3 The number of follicles in a woman can determine her E2 levels of ovarian stimulations. There are no charts showing E2 levels during stimulation since there is a wide variation depending on how many follicles are being produced and their size. Most doctors will consider any increase in E2 as an indication that ovulation is occurring, but others use a formula of either 100 pg/ml after 4 days of stimulations, or a doubling in E2 from the level taken on cycle day 3. Estradiol (E2) Surge/hCG day NORMAL LEVELS 200 + pg/ml The levels should be 200-600 per mature (18 mm) follicle. These levels are sometimes lower in overweight women.

Luteinizing Hormone (LH) TEST: Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS < 7 mIU/ml A normal LH level is similar to FSH. A higher level of LH higher than FSH is one indication of PCOS.

Luteinizing Hormone (LH) TEST Surge Day, NORMAL LEVELS > 20Miu/ml A surge in LH indicates that ovulation will take place in the next 48hrs.

Prolactin TEST: Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS < 24 ng/ml An Increase in prolactin levels can interfere with ovulation. Some women with PCOS also have hyperprolactinemia.

Progesterone (P4) TEST:Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS < 1.5 ng/ml; It is often called the follicular phase level. An increased level may prevent pregnancy . If you are experiencing low progesterone levels, consider taking a natural fertility supplement like FertilAid for Women.

Progesterone (P4) TEST:Day 7 dpo, NORMAL LEVELS > 15 ng/ml A progesterone is carried out to confirm ovulation. When the egg is releases from a follicle, it becomes what is called a corpus luteum and produces progesterone. A level over 5 probably indicates some form of ovulation, but most doctors want to see a level over 10 on a natural cycle to confirm normal ovulation cycles, and a level over 15 on a medicated cycle. It is said that the test may show more accuracy if done first thing in the morning after fasting.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), TEST: Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS 4-4 uIU/ml, Mid-range normal in most labs is about 1.7. A high level of TSH combined with a low or normal T4 level generally indicates hypothyroidism, which may have an effect on fertility.

Free Triiodothyronine (T3), TEST:Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS 1.4-4.4 pg/ml Thyroid glands may still be producing normal levels of T4, a T3 test can be carried out to determine the ineffective thyroid gland and accurate evaluation of thyroid function. Therefore measurement of both hormones provides an even more Free Thyroxine (T4) TEST Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS 8-2 ng/dl A low level of T4 may indicate a diseased thyroid gland or may indicate a non- functioning pituitary gland which is not stimulating the thyroid to produce T4. If the T4 is low and the TSH is normal, that is more likely to indicate a problem with the pituitary.

Total Testosterone, TEST:Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS 6-86 ng/dl. Testosterone is secreted from the adrenal gland and the ovaries. Most would consider a level above 50 to abnormal.

Free Testosterone, TEST: Day 3, NORMAL LEVELS .7-3.6 ng/dl

A few things I learned about virtual reality after spending way too much time in it

You need a dedicated place for your VR headset to sit when not in use, and make sure its cables are out of the way and/or tucked behind your desk. Both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive have long, thick cables attached to them — cables that are easily tripped over or caught on your foot while you sit at your desk.

Fertility information

Improve Diet

Eat a diet of 25% or more protein and 40% or less carbs (improves egg quality and doubles pregnancy rate in IVF)

Consume dairy fat (reduces risk of unexplained and anovulatory infertility by 27% and 50%, respectively)

Avoid low fat dairy (increases risk of unexplained infertility by 85%)

Don't drink alcohol before conception (reduces live birth rate by 21% in IVF patients) Increase monounsaturated fats

Increase saturated fats (lowers risk of infertility by 17%)

Decrease trans fats

Reduce polyunsaturated fats (higher consumption increases risk of infertility by 23%) Reduce intake of refined carbohydrates

Reduce dietary fiber (each 5 grams per day increases risk of anovulatory cycle by 78%)

Reduce intake of animal protein Replace animal protein with vegetable protein

Avoid soy (causes infertility in mice)

MORE INFORMATION

Which foods contain monounsaturated fats?

Most foods contain a combination of different fats. Examples of foods high in monounsaturated fats include plant-based liquid oils such as: olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, safflower oil and sesame oil. Other sources include avocados, peanut butter, and many nuts and seeds.

Which foods are high in polyunsaturated fats?

Most foods contain a combination of fats. Foods high in polyunsaturated fat include a number of plant-based oils, including: soybean oil, corn oil and sunflower oil, as well as fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and trout.

What foods contain saturated fats?

Saturated fats occur naturally in many foods. The majority come mainly from animal sources, including meat and dairy products. Examples are: fatty beef, lamb, pork, poultry with skin, beef fat (tallow), lard and cream, butter, cheese and other dairy products made from whole or reduced-fat (2 percent) milk.

High fiber: . Artichokes Fiber: 10.3 grams per medium vegetable, cooked. Go-To Recipe: Roasted Artichokes for Two Packing more fiber per serving than any other vegetable, artichokes are curiously underused in most people’s kitchens (perhaps because they look a bit… prickly). Get creative and try this simple recipe with lime, garlic, and black pepper.

  1. Peas Fiber: 8.8 grams per cup, cooked. Go-To Recipe: Scallops on Minted Pea Purée with Prosciutto Puréeing veggies is a great way to squeeze extra nutrients into any meal — this recipe comes together lightning-fast and is filled with protein, omega-3s, and, of course, fiber.

  2. Broccoli Fiber: 5.1 grams per cup, boiled. Go-To Recipe: Paleo Broccoli Fritters This caveman-friendly dish is pretty simple. To make these fritters, just combine onion, garlic, broccoli, eggs, and almond meal. Once they hit the table, you’ll be surprised how much broccoli gets finished in one sitting.

  3. Brussels Sprouts Fiber: 4.1 grams per cup, boiled. Go-To Recipe: Hoisin Glazed Brussels Sprouts Try this Asian twist on the old standard — this meal carries tones of ginger, sesame, and peanut that will keep you coming back for seconds (and maybe thirds).

  4. Raspberries Fiber: 8 grams per cup, raw. Go-To Recipe: Raspberry, Coconut, and Oat Macaroons Raspberries aren’t a hard sell — they’re basically nature’s candy. With the help of coconut, oatmeal, and vanilla, they make a relatively healthy dessert that pleases any palate.

  5. Blackberries Fiber: 7.6 grams per cup, raw. Go-To Recipe: Blackberry Lemon Salad Successfully mixing sweet and savory isn’t for the faint of heart, but this salad makes use of blackberries, lemon, scallions, and dill to great effect.

  6. Avocados Fiber: 6.7 grams per half, raw. Go-To Recipe: Chicken, Black Bean, Avocado and Radish Salad Few foods deserve the title of “superfood” more than the avocado, which is jam-packed with vitamins, fiber, and healthy fats. Pile it on top of this low-carb, Mexican-inspired salad to add some creamy goodness.

  7. Pears Fiber: 5.5 grams per medium fruit, raw. Go-To Recipe: Herb-Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Pears This recipe is a simple and inexpensive way to experiment with an unusual flavor combination. Pork works well with sweeter flavors, and the high sugar content of pears makes them easy to caramelize.
