3 Easy to add foods that will increase your fertility naturally
Posted By: Jodie Peacock on: Mon Jun 2017
Spirulina is commonly referred to as blue-green algae. It is an exceptionally nutrient dense plant food source, and it has been shown to be excellent for supporting healthy fertility and pregnancy.
The protein in spirulina is a high-quality protein, superior to most other plant proteins. It contains 60-70 percent protein, which is around three times higher than beef, and is in a highly digestible form.
It is available in tablet or powder form. The powder can be added to soups or smoothies.
Berries including strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries are an important part of the fertility diet because they provide considerable amounts of antioxidants. Antioxidants are used in the body to protect cells from damage. Antioxidants help to protect your fertility by defending the eggs and sperm from DNA damage and helping to keep tissues of the reproductive system healthy. Berries are great in smoothies, by themselves, on top of salads and as a quick snack. It is important to buy berries organic, as they are heavily sprayed with pesticides when grown conventionally.
3. Raw Pumpkin seeds
Raw pumpkin seeds are a high source of zinc, a mineral that is essential for fertility particularly male fertility. In North America zinc deficiency is a very common mineral deficiency and can result in infertility. Zinc is important for sperm health, testosterone levels, the immune system, and healthy DNA.
Pumpkin seeds are a source of phytosterols that help support the immune system and healthy cholesterol levels. Pumpkin seeds are also a source of protein, magnesium, manganese and copper which all play an important role in optimizing your health. Pumpkin seeds help to protect sperm and eggs from chromosomal damage which will increase fertility naturally. To help increase natural fertility, eating 1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds daily will play a significant role. The seeds can be eaten on their own or added to salads, pastas and many other dishes.
