Bud was inspired by our personal experience of unexplained secondary infertility. A journey that lasted four long years, but very happily – and with the help of IVF (and some very clever people at
Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital), culminated in the arrival of twins!
However, this experience gave us an insight into the reality of fertility problems that many of us unexpectedly have to face.
Many factors including changes in diet, lifestyle, stress and the tendency to start a family later in life, are considered the main contributing factors to our weakening natural fertility.
It is Bud’s mission to support all couples when they first decide to try for a baby, helping them to become Baby Body Ready – and to continue supporting them during the 18 months to two-year average period it takes
to achieve natural conception.
So, whether you’re just starting out or have been trying to conceive for a while, Bud’s innovative formulas contain adaptogens, minerals and vitamins, proven to support vital aspects of reproductive health and function.
Developed by clinical nutritionists, Bud’s approach in developing these formulas has been holistic – we have included all the nutritional essentials, and have added powerful adaptogens to uniquely target male and female hormone balance, reduce stress and increase well-being – all vital, but often overlooked factors that affect our natural fertility.
Our preconception supplement includes zinc, which contributes to normal fertility and reproduction and the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood, and Selenium that contributes to normal spermatogenesis. Along with additional vitamins C, E, D and B12 the formula also includes maca, carnitine, cordyceps sinensis, ashwaganda and pine bark extract.
Our supplement for women concentrates on key nutrients to support healthy conception and preparation for pregnancy. An essential mix of vitamins & minerals, including zinc, selenium and vitamins C, E, D, B6, B12 is combined with adaptogens maca, muira puama and cordyceps sinensis. The formula includes 400µg of Folic Acid (in naturally occurring folate) as recommended by the UK Department of Health for women planning to conceive.
