Parents Trying to Conceive

If you are having trouble trying to conceive, fluoride may be the issue. In animal studies, fluoride has been shown to have harmful effects on both the male and female reproductive system. In men, fluoride can be associated with testicular disorders, oxidative stress (which is linked to cancer), lower testosterone level, damaged sperm, reduced sperm count, low sperm motility, and even at low levels it can be associated with a reduction in sperm count and viability, as well as a reduction in testicular enzyme activity. When a dose as low as 1ppm was combined with aluminum in one study, the effects were even worse. These symptoms correlate with human statistics that most cases of male infertility are caused by abnormal sperm count or low sperm motility.

Overall, research shows that that fluoride toxicity decreased fertility in most animal species studied. Many of these studies were conducted using high concentrations of fluoride, however interestingly enough, rats and mice are about 5 times more tolerant to fluoride than humans. 1 to 10 ppm represents a notably low level of fluoride for these animals. 10 ppm to a rat is more like 2 ppm for a human. Keeping this in mind, all studies performed on rats & mice could be very applicable and close to our current daily exposure to fluoride.

There haven’t been many studies on humans; however studies do show a possible link to fluoride and menstrual irregularities, genital irritations and spontaneous abortion. It has also been shown that infertility in women was found to increase with water fluoridation. There is also a correlation between water fluoride levels exceeding 3 ppm and decreased birth rates in the US. Exposure to fluoride can also cause difficulty to orgasm in both men and women.

Fluoride can also interfere with your thyroid gland and lead to hypothyroidism, which has been linked to infertility, polycystic ovaries, irregular menstruation, and other fertility problems in women. In men, it can cause low sperm count or the reduction of the sperm's lifespan.

To counteract the oxidative stress that fluoride can cause on your reproductive system, I recommend strong antioxidants like Now Foods C-1000 With Rose Hips, Sustained Release, 500 tab Now Foods Dry E, D-Alpha succinate, 400 IU- 250 caps and HerbaSway Blueberry Magic - 2 oz  Dynamic Health Concentrate - Blueberry Juice, 16 oz Studies have shown that antioxidant supplements may improve sperm quality and pregnancy rates. Blueberries can benefit nearly every step involved in getting pregnant including ovulation, helping sperm and egg meet so conception can occur, keeping your fallopian tubes clear for the easy transport of your embryo to your uterus, and keeping the lining of your uterus healthy so that your implantation and your pregnancy can be healthy and strong. Men, Blueberries can increase your sperm count, and make your sperm clearer and thinner and have less of a bitter taste.

Guys, you may want to cut down on the beer while you’re trying to have a baby. Or, at least don’t drink your beer out of aluminum cans – shoot for bottles. You could also try imported beers from Germany such as Heineken; they don’t fluoridate their water. Source Naturals Magnesium Malate 1250 mg, 360 tab can help to rid your body of aluminum, even from the brain.

To help heat things up in the bedroom, I recommend Enzymatic Therapy Hot Plants for Her - 60 caps and Enzymatic Therapy Hot Plants for Him - 60 caps

And finally, the best way to avoid fluoride is to block it from your drinking water with a reverse osmosis system. This can help prevent and reverse the damage fluoride can do to your reproductive system, and protect the health of your future baby.
