Dear Esme

To some extent magnesium and folic acid is important as adjuncts to other fertility treatments. However, as has been mentioned in previous postings, the use of vitamins and mineral supplements are only helpful in patients who have poor nutritional status. In those individuals with a healthy balanced diet, there is no need for additonal supplementation.
