October News & Views

Our suppliers have upgraded  their equipment so we are now back in stock with the Women's Essentials but not the Pregnancy Supplements. For those who are used to taking the capsules, both the Women's and Men's Essentials are currently in tablet form, so don't worry if they look different. The dosage is 1 tablet per day which should make them easier for you to take.  For women looking for pregnancy support, it's a great idea to keep taking the Women's Essential until our Pregnancy Essentials are back in stock.

For those who are concerned about levels of Follic Acid in the Women's Essentials, our nutritionist Dr Jane Jamieson says:

The usual NHS guidelines for folic acid is 400ug for fertility, this would be for synthetic supplements produced in a laboratory. For food state supplements which have a higher uptake, higher utilisation and slower excretion rate in the body, the amount needed for fertility would be more likely to be around 100ug. We have included 200ug to be on the safe side. Fortunately the body is able to get rid of any excess folic acid it doesn’t need, so the body can regulate its requirements on a day by day basis.

NFC Essentials are recommended by the GCRM in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee as the supplement of choice for their patients.

New research carried out in London shows that acupuncture increases IVF success rates - reported here in the Times

 You can't out-wit ageing but we can try to improve on what we've got.  If you're worried about the quality of your sperm, get in touch with us about DNA Fragmentation Testing - now available at the Natural Fertility Centre in Edinburgh.  There has been quite a bit of interest in this test so book ahead for a consultation - at Albany Street Clinic, one Sunday per month.

  • For Glasgow patients: Our Conception Coach Dee Armstrong is available via Skype for consultations and our fertility nutritionist, Jane Jamieson, is regularly at the clinic in Glasgow. Please get in touch with us if you want to pre-book an appointment.  

New patients are always telling us how much benefit they get from hearing other peoples' stories. If you are willing and able to share your story, whether on-line via a testimonial or case history on our website/blog, on Facebook or in the press, please do contact us.
