Role of antioxidants in fertility
Most ovarian cancers appear in the surface epithelium, and repetitive ovulation has been thought to be a causative factor. Ovulation-induced oxidative base damage and damage to DNA of the ovarian epithelium can be prevented by antioxidants.
OS plays a role in the pathophysiology of infertility and assisted fertility,
endometriosis, tubal and peritoneal factor infertility and unexplained infertility.
Deficiency of antioxidants enhance conditions like abortions, preeclampsia, preterm labour and preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.
Antioxidants are critical for follicular growth, corpus luteum formation endometrial differentiation and embryonic growth.
