New: It Looks Like A Mediterranean Diet Boosts IVF.

According to the findings of the analysis, eating a Mediterranean diet may boost the chances of successful IVF.

For more than two decades, millions of women have used in vitro fertilization (IVF) as a reproductive treatment with success. Doctors recommend that women consider IVF if all previous reproductive treatments have failed, if they have endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, blocked or nonexistent fallopian tubes, or if they have any other disorder that impacts fertility. Doctors inject hormones that induce the production of several eggs rather than just one to begin the IVF procedure. When more than one egg is discovered, it is collected and combined with sperm in a laboratory dish. When an embryo reaches the mature blastocyst stage, it is transferred to a woman’s uterus, and a typical pregnancy is expected to begin.

Which nutrients may aid in the effectiveness of IVF?

This study looked at 27 studies that were published between January 2015 and May 2023. The study was a comprehensive analysis of several nutritional supplements and their impact on IVF outcomes. The review also looked into the advantages of food restrictions and the Mediterranean diet.

The studies were excluded based on certain criteria. The majority of the research analysis centered on females rather than guys.
The study’s findings revealed that certain supplements improve IVF outcomes, while the utility of other supplements is unknown.

IVF outcomes and antioxidants:

Antioxidants are substances that inhibit the oxidation and destruction of other molecules. These compounds are abundant in the Mediterranean diet. Because molecules are the building blocks of cells, eating antioxidant-rich foods protects the body’s cells from free radicals, which are other molecules that harm good molecules and cells. An excess of free radicals can destroy the cells that make up a woman’s eggs, reproductive hormone glands, and reproductive organs. While a woman is undergoing IVF, consuming items from the Mediterranean diet can help keep glands and organs functioning properly and significantly reduce the damage caused by free radicals.

The use of healthy vegetable oils is an important part of a Mediterranean diet:

Vegetable oils rich in omega-6 fatty acids provide the body with the precursors it requires to generate prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are a type of hormone that is produced by the body rather than emitted by glands. Prostaglandins have a role in the regulation of a woman’s reproductive system; they also regulate ovulation and commence labor by triggering uterine muscle contractions.

“Further research is required to confirm the findings, determine the actual treatment effect, and, in several instances, determine the appropriate dose of the supplement to take and the particular sub-group of patients who would benefit from the treatment.”
