Top 5 Fertility Foods For Women

It is an established fact that nutrition and foods plays an important role in fertility. When it comes to conception and planning for pregnancy, a proper diet plan is required. It is important to know about the foods that you should be consuming to boost up your fertility. Here are five foods you should make an effort to consume more of so that you can enjoy the joy of parenthood later.

Top 5 Fertility Foods For Women

According to studies, the fresh foods, high in nutritional value, and preferably grown in organic or supported environment are the best foods that help you conceive. Fertility super-foods contain higher nutritional values, includes almonds, asparagus, bananas, citrus fruits, eggs, peas, mackerel, shell fish & mollusks, tofu, and salmon.

1. High-Quality Proteins

High quality proteins in your diet are important for fertility. Higher-protein, lower carb diet help to increase pregnant rates, various studies have claimed. Eating a diet of 25% or more protein and 40% or less carbs improved egg quality and doubled pregnancy rate in IVF patients as opposed to those following a higher carb, lower protein diet. “Whole eggs and egg whites are excellent sources, as are white meat poultry, and fish, especially those rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon. Protein from plant sources like beans, peas, and peanuts have also been associated with increased fertility.”

2. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Where to begin with how healthy and important for fertility fresh produce is? First of all, it’s full of antioxidants, which promote general-and reproductive-health. Plus many fruits and vegetables-oranges and citrus fruits, strawberries, green leafy vegetables-are high in folate, an important nutrient to load up on before pregnancy to prevent birth defects.

3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Say “no” to trans fats and saturated fats…and yes to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These fats reduce inflammation and increase insulin sensitivity. Where to get them? In avocados, nuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds, sardines, and salmon.

4. Whole Grain

You don’t have to give up carbs, just choose wisely. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain breads, brown rice, stone-ground cornmeal, and oatmeal don’t affect blood sugar and insulin as dramatically as refined carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, bleached flour, etc). And anything that’s good for insulin function is good for fertility.

5. Low-Fat or Full-Fat Dairy

Dairy products are essentials for preparing your body for pregnancy because you’re getting calcium and protein. To increase your chances of getting pregnant, you might want to swap one skim milk serving for a full-fat one, as one study found that women consuming a serving of full-fat milk each day decreased their chances of a certain kind of infertility, according to a New York Times article.
