How herbicides/pesticides/weed killers impact fertility

Did you know environmental toxins have a huge impact on fertility? These are toxins like heavy metals, chemicals in the air, health and beauty aids, radioactive elements and chemicals in our food and water.

Products that contain glyphosate (herbicides/weed killers) are most detrimental to our reproductive system with long term side effects. Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor that impairs mitochondrial function. In men, glyphosate causes a decrease in sperm count along with their mobility and viability. In women, glyphosate impairs ovulation, implantation and fetal viability. This damage decreases fertility and makes in vitro fertilization less likely to succeed.

Glyphosate can damage the fetus during pregnancy and cause long-term damage to the cells and organs of the mother and child post-delivery.

If you're struggling to conceive, switching to organic is a must. And consider a binder like CellCore's HMET that can remove glyphosate from your tissues & cells.
