ConceptionXR Motility Support Supplement
Take 2 tablets and 2 capsules per day, with food. Tablets and capsules may be taken together or at separate times of the day.
Men should take either Conception XR Reproductive Health Formula or Conception XR Motility Support Formula, not both.
Artificial Dye-Free. Gluten-Free. Gelatin capsules are made from certified BSE-free bovine (cow) gelatin.
ConceptionXR Reproductive Health Formula provides a base formula of high-dose antioxidants (vitamins C, E, and selenium) and other nutrients designed to promote sperm structure and function in 2 tablets a day.*
In total men will take 2 tablets a day. ConceptionXR Motility Support Formulas provides the same base formula as Reproductive Health in 2 tablets, and provides additional vitamin D and L-carnitine in two capsules a day to support healthy sperm motility.* In total men will take 2 tablets and 2 capsules every day. Sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to swim) is important for men trying to father a pregnancy through natural conception or IUI. Sperm motility is not as critical for IVF, so the L-carnitine found in Motility Support Formula would not provide added benefit. By skipping the L-carnitine, which is an expensive ingredient, the cost of the Reproductive Health Formula is significantly less than Motility Support Formula.
Do not take both ConceptionXR products. Take ONE ConceptionXR product or the other. Taking both products together would provide a higher dose of nutrients than is recommended.
Q. Who is likely to benefit from ConceptionXR Motility Support Formula?
Men trying to father a pregnancy through natural conception or IUI may benefit from Conception XR Motility Support Formula because of the L-carnitine's added benefit to sperm motility.*
Couples considering or undergoing fertility treatments such as IVF, or men with normal sperm motility, may want to consider Conception XR Reproductive Health Formula.

ConceptionXR Motility Support Formula should be taken for at least three months because it takes that long for sperm to be produced. It should be continued until pregnancy is achieved, or as recommended by your healthcare provider.
