7 fruits and vegetables increasing fertility

As we all know, autumn is a season offering many fruits and vegetables and we will talk about seven of them here, which, if regularly consumed, increase fertility.

When preparing for conception (be it natural, insemination or in vitro fertilization) the attention we give to our diet is motivated by the fact that there are specific nutrients necessary in the pre conceptional phase, to insure a healthy pregnancy. Also, a healthy diet helps balance your endocrine system, so that subsequent treatments have an increased effect. Last but not least, a correct diet associated with anti-oxidant products, increases the chances for conception.

The most important pro-fertility foods:

  1. Vegetables and vegetable juices are recommended because they are rich in iron, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, antioxidants (especially cabbage and spinach). All coloured vegetables are recommended.
  2. Fruit and fruit juices – rich in vitamin C, flavonoids, anti-oxidants (especially plums, pomegranates, raisins and blueberries).
  3. Nuts and seeds – very rich in Omega 3, zinc, vitamin E and protein. Walnuts, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds are highly recommended. Pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds are especially recommended for men.
  4. Rice, buckwheat, millet – very rich in vitamins, but they are recommended only after checking the tolerability for these foods.
  5. Lentils and beans are rich in iron and folic acid, so they should be added to your diet.
  6. Broccoli – very rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
  7. Cauliflower – a good source of vitamins and Q10 coenzyme.

In addition to the list of fruit and vegetables, to increase the chances for conception and the quality of oocytes and sperm, the body must undergo a detox period. To this end you should consume filtered water or water from glass bottles – approximately 2.5 litres per day, drink 5 to 7 100 ml glasses of fresh vegetable juices and 2-3 glasses of natural fruit juices.

At the same time it is elementary to eliminate sugar, alcohol and caffeine and quit smoking, in order to support the effects of a healthy diet which would contribute significantly to your chances of conception.
