Be it standards of your own or those of the FDA, Makers Nutrition manufactures prenatal vitamins and supplements that surpass them all. We remain aware of all things nutraceutical, but we strive to keep our clients up to date on the latest nutrients of which women, both pregnant and looking to become pregnant, should be knowledgeable.
Manufacturing Fertility Vitamins
There are certain vitamins such as D and B9 (folate), which have been found to aid fertility. If vitamin D intake is inadequate, women may be less likely to conceive. Deficiencies have been associated with conditions that decrease fertility, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, and may affect IVF outcomes. Folate and folic acid, members of the B complex family, are water-soluble nutrients vital to oocyte quality, maturation, fertilization, and implantation. In women undergoing infertility treatment, folic acid supplementation was connected to a 3.3 increased chance of becoming pregnant. Sufficient folic acid can also reduce the chance of neural tube defects during pregnancy.
Are you a general wellness brand? Consider expanding a line of pregnancy supplements. While vitamin D and B9 are important, prenatal multivitamins offer a plethora of benefits as well. You can provide an all-in-one multivitamin which contains micronutrients to positively impact fertility efforts. When dealing with the health of potential mothers, you’ll want to work with a trustworthy vitamin manufacturing company.
Supplement Ingredients to Consider
L-carnitine is an amino-acid like nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. Women supplementing with L-carnitine who had PCOS experienced improved quality of ovulation and significantly successful pregnancies. Other studies have established that both L-carnitine and acetyl L-carnitine can help improve gonadotropins and sex hormone levels, improving oocyte health.
DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is an androgen produced in the adrenal glands and ovaries, converted into estradiol and testosterone. DHEA supplementation has proven itself beneficial in helping to reduce the rate of miscarriage in women of all ages, but especially those 35 and over. CoQ10 is a vitamin-like nutrient that has been shown to considerably increase the number of oocytes retrieved, increase fertilization rates by 67.49%, and produce more high-quality embryos.
Other Necessary Nutrients
It is important for women to be proactive about their health, pregnant or not. For women interested in conceiving in the future, taking care of themselves will only benefit their babies, so make it your brand’s mission to promote women’s health altogether. Carrying or not, let your female customers know they matter!

Remember, each case is different. Depending on the mother’s situation, her health care provider may suggest a supplement containing more folic acid than usual, while another mother may need to take less. Therefore, it is very important that your label advises customers to consult their health care providers before taking any dietary supplement.
