Could Vitamin D be the Missing Link to your Fertility Puzzle?

AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) is a marker of Ovarian Reserve (or how many eggs you have). Today, let’s take it a step further. What if I told you that Vitamin D was actually the one running the show? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Current research shows that a Vitamin D (Vit D) deficiency has been linked to reduced female fertility. Well now we know why—Vitamin D actually regulates AMH production in our bodies. Because Vit D influences ovarian AMH production, monitoring and adjusting your Vit D levels have been shown to increase circulating AMH levels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Research shows that a single large oral dose of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) taken at the start of the menstrual cycle leads to an acute increase in women’s circulating levels of AMH during the following 7 days. ⠀

So the next time you go to see your OB/GYN or Fertility Specialist, see if this critical piece to the puzzle could be affecting your chances at conceiving.
