What you eat affects every aspect of your health and that includes fertility too. What you eat and drink affect the way your body works for better or worse, so it becomes important to take care of what food we consume and what we don’t.
Based on research, plant based diets that include foods with high water content and high nutrition density has been shown to increase reproductive health.
Here are 5 foods that boost your fertility:
- Whole grains
Refined carbs that include white flour or grains with husk removed cause an increase in blood sugar and insulin in the body that can disrupt hormones and your ovulation cycle.
Whole grains don’t have this effect.
- Omega-3 Fish
Omega-3 fatty acids increase blood flow to reproductive organs, but they also regulate reproductive hormones.
For those who don’t eat non-vegetarian foods, this Omega-3 can be got from various seeds and nuts.
- Organic dairy products
Since ancient times, milk has been used as a form of dietary therapy,to get ovulation on track in women who have fertility issues.
- Lean Meats
Research has shown that women who increase their iron intake during the preconception period have a higher fertility rate than women who are iron-deficient.
- Raspberries and blueberries
All fruits are good for health but blueberries and raspberries are packed with antioxidants that help in cell repair and prevent cell aging that include your reproductive system.
