Wanting to conceive?

If you are a woman wanting to conceive, there is no evidence that taking antioxidant supplements will improve your fertility.

Research was compiled from 28 trials with over 3500 women attending fertility clinics.  Women who took antioxidant supplements were no more likely to become pregnant than those who took an inactive placebo or received standard treatment, including folic acid.  It was difficult for the researchers to assess whether one antioxidant was better than another.
