How to Improve Egg Quality, Sperm Quality and Pregnancy Rates
Mar 13, 2023
We’re digging into CoQ10 and how it can help with fertility.
Before discovering the power of nutrition and targeted supplements, the only vitamins I had taken were Flintstone vitamins (yep, the ones filled with dyes and sugar).
I thought I only needed daily vitamins if I was deficient in something.
Turns out, there are vitamins and minerals that we simply can’t get from food.
Nutritional imbalances can cause many symptoms that we don’t recognize as being from a vitamin or mineral deficiency.
Optimizing your health prior to conception is essential.
What if there was something you could do to support egg quality, sperm health and pregnancy rates?
CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant that helps decrease inflammation, which is essential for pregnancy.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- What studies say about this antioxidant and how it can improve embryo quality with diminished ovarian reserve
- Egg and sperm health improvements and fertilization rates
- The difference between ubiquinone and ubiquinol and what the studies tell us for someone who is TTC
- Diet sources for this CoQ10

I recently heard about a Nobel Prize-winning super antioxidant from my friend Jess. She’s the CEO at C60 Purple Power®, and I was intrigued to learn more after she told me C60 helped her get pregnant naturally… this was after her doctor told her she had no chance of getting pregnant. By the way, Jess is over 40, and she gave me permission to share her secret with you.
I love their products, especially the C60 in Organic Avocado Oil. It’s so good for energy, immunity, skin and hair, plus mitochondria health, which is essential for good optimal health and fertility.
That’s why I’m excited to partner with C60 Purple Power®. They are the leading manufacturer of Carbon 60 health and wellness products; they offer both consumable and topical products that may be just what you need to help you get pregnant.
