Nutrition, lifestyle and fertility: Undeniable links!

Nutrition, lifestyle and fertility


The decline in fertility is global and accelerating.

It is now recognized by many experts that the environment and certain lifestyles have a significant impact on the fertility of men and women. 

A healthy lifestyle is fundamental to ensure good reproductive health and therefore maximize the chances of conception.

Conversely, the negative consequences of an inadequate lifestyle on health in general, and on reproductive functions in particular, are increasingly well known by health professionals and fertility experts.


Complex mechanisms at the origin of this phenomenon

The mechanisms involved are numerous and complex: inflammatory conditions, excessive oxidative stress, hormonal imbalance, etc. 

Due to their diversity and numerous interactions, one of the key limitations lies in the difficulty to objectively and globally evaluate and characterize the different factors involved and their respective contributions.

Only recent methods based on artificial intelligence are able to integrate these factors in a global way, and to take into account their diversity and their interactions thanks to in-depth mathematical analyses.


Enabling a holistic approach in addressing how lifestyle and nutrition impact fertility

The @lifert tests, resulting from our research programs, have been developed to solve this problem and to offer a precise and objective insight into the impact of your nutritional, metabolic and oxidative status on your fertility.

The result obtained allows you to position yourself in relation to the couples of the clinical study, to then modify your lifestyle ( nutrition, physical exercise…) and to remain motivated in your project by clearly measuring the effect of these actions on your reproductive status.


One phenomenon can hide another!

The existence of another factor of infertility does not exempt you from taking into account and preserving or improving your quality of life. 

When a treatment by medically assisted procreation is necessary, lifestyle remains a key element to consider in order to increase the chances of success, regardless of the technique adapted to your situation ( intra-uterine insemination or in-vitro fertilization).

In addition, lifestyle factors have a considerable and proven effect on the intrinsic quality of eggs and sperm, but also on the future health of the child to be born.
