Zusammenfassung

Der potenzielle Nutzen von Mikronährstoffen im Zusammenhang mit Kinderwunsch ist hinsichtlich seiner Relevanz bemerkenswert unerforscht. Während für Tiere zahlreiche Studien existieren – mit dem ökonomischen Nutzen als Motivator –, wird das Thema beim Menschen auffällig randständig beobachtet. Dabei gibt es durchaus einige Studien und auch veritable Hinweise, die bestimmten Mikronährstoffen eine bessere Schwangerschaftsrate zuschreiben. Der vorliegende Beitrag bringt hierzu eine aktuelle Übersicht.

Nutrition and dietary supplements in the improvement of female fertility

Abstract

There are reports that micronutrients have an effect on fertility, pregnancy, and lactation. The potential benefits of micronutrients regarding relevancy in pregnancy has not been studied for many years. Beginning from the experiences with folic acid and its protective effect on the neural tube as well as heart defects, the topic is again receiving attention. There are several studies and indications that certain micronutrients can improve pregnancy rates. This paper gives an overview of the potential effects of the most common micronutrients on fertility.
