There are natural ways to boost female fertility at any age, starting with simple dietary and lifestyle changes.
Different phases of the cycle require a woman’s body to produce different hormones and go through separate processes. So, if a woman wants to maximize her chances of conceiving, it is good for her to eat foods that are advantageous to each phase.
Whether you’re just beginning your quest to add to your family or you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while, here are six female fertility-boosting foods to add to your diet now;
Beans are considered best food for pregnancy. Plant based beans such as lentils, chickpeas, black beans and soya beans are a rich source of fibre, zinc, folate, protein and calcium. Even animals based products like meat is healthy and rich in proteins, but one should substitute them with plant based beans as the latter are easy to digest. Beans can be added to most salads, or in sandwiches or vegetable preparations.
The magic nutrient: Essential fatty acids.
These are essential for a strong reproductive system in women. It also helps boost fertility in men. DHA, one of the fatty acids found in fish oil has a significant impact on sperm health. A fatty acid deficiency leads to an increase in cholesterol in the sperm membrane which prevents sperm from proper maturation.
Spinach, romaine, arugula, broccoli, and other dark leafy greens are high in folate, and B vitamin that a few studies have shown may improve ovulation. Be sure to share the salad with your guy; men who get higher doses of folate make healthier sperm, potentially reducing the chances of miscarriage or genetic problems in the baby.
Eggs are an extremely small power-packed nutrition source that boosts fertility. It contains Vitamin B12 and folate which minimizes birth defects. In addition, it’s rich in antioxidants and cartenoids which boost fertility in women.
The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K are found within fat in foods, so if you eat a very low-fat diet, it can be difficult to get enough of these important vitamins. Higher blood levels of vitamin D also may help improve pregnancy rates in women undergoing fertility treatments. Examples of healthy fats include olive oil or coconut oil, avocados, and nuts and seeds, especially vitamin E-rich sunflower seeds and almonds.
Dairy is a definite do when you’re trying to conceive — it’s chock-full of calcium, which is great for bone and reproductive health. And downing one serving of full-fat dairy a day, like whole milk (or even full-fat ice cream, yum!), can help you overcome ovulation issues and get pregnant.
Staying well nourished boosts your odds of conceiving! Make sure to include enough protein, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D in your diet, because deficiencies in these nutrients have been linked to lengthened menstrual cycles (and therefore less frequent ovulation) and a higher risk of early miscarriage.
