    And do I have to take Omega 3 500 daily as well?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Those look great to me! I do generally recommend a DHA or Omega 3 supplement but if you're eating fish 2x a week and a fair amount of red meat if you don't want to take it you can get by without it, as long as you're not eating a lot of vegetable oil.

    I would add in probiotics for your husband and 500 mg arginine, 1000 mg carnitine if he will take it. He can also take the Omega 3 supplements if you get them.

    Thank you so much Atomic!

    Do I add 500 mg arginine, 1000 mg carnitine for me too? Or just for my husband?

    No just for your husband on those two. Women should avoid them

    Ok, thank you!

    Another question please if you don't mind, the only Omega 3 I found here where I live is a vegetarian brand which I would like to run through you to make sure it is safe for me to take while ttc a boy.

    It says:
    About the product:
    Heart Omega 3 Vegan contains natural omega-3 fatty acids from algae, including EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA contribute to the normal functioning of the heart, DHA also contributes to maintaining normal brain function and vision. The beneficial effect is achieved with a daily intake of at least 250 mg of EPA and DHA. Vegan does not contain iodine and can also be taken by breastfeeding and for pregnant women.

    Table of Contents:
    Algae oil (Schizochytrium sp.), Modified corn starch,
    glycerol, sunflower oil, gelling agent (carrageenan),
    extract rich in vitamin E, ascorbyl palmitate, rosemary extract,
    sodium carbonate.

    Content per 1 capsule
    Algae oil: 500mg
    Of which
    Omega-3: 250mg
    Of which:
    EPA: 83.3mg
    DHA: 166.6mg


    Recommended Dosage:
