Superfoods should be a part of every couple’s fertility diet to help bridge the gap for proper nutrition, nourish the egg and the sperm, and help to balance hormones. An easy way to get fertility superfoods into your diet daily is to drink them in your smoothies.
Maca is a wonderful superfood from Peru that helps to balance the hormones, increase egg health, increase sperm count and sperm health while also being a tonic for the endocrine system. Maca also helps increase progesterone if the body is low in this important hormone. Maca comes in capsules, powder and tincture. It can be taken every day. Maca also keeps you energised be careful not to take it close to bed time.
Vitex also known as Chaste Berry or Vitex Agnus Cactus is an herb that has used to correct hormonal imbalances in women for centuries. Vitex is a fantastic herb for fertility, helping with a range of issues such as PMS, low progesterone, lack of ovulation, irregular menstrual cycles, lack of a menstrual cycle, acne and so much more. Vitex offers many benefits but requires patience and consistency of use. I find that it works best when used all month long and taken as one dose in the morning on an empty stomach.
If you have any hormonal issues and want to get pregnant, Vitex may be beneficial to you. (I would be looking at speaking more on this fertility herb in weeks to come is a new one to me as well but the reviews have been fabulous)
Royal jelly is another fertility specific superfood which may help increase egg health and general fertility. Royal jelly is the food that is fed to the queen bee that makes her the queen bee. She goes on to live 6 years and lays up to 2000 eggs per day. Most bees live less than two months.
Royal Jelly is rich in vitamins, A, B, C, D, and E. It is also contains minerals including calcium and iron, all of the essential amino acids, plus antibacterial and immune stimulating properties. It comes in capsules or in a base of honey. It can be taken every day.
Bee Propolis and Bee Pollen
Bee propolis and bee pollen are two additional fertility super foods from our friend the bee. These foods are rich in nutrients. Bee pollen contains 50% more protein than beef and is rich in every vitamin and mineral. Bee Propolis is a powerful immune system stimulant and inflammation aid. It also helps women who have endometriosis.
Bee propolis and Bee Pollen are available in capsules or in a base of honey. They can be taken everyday.
Spirulina, Wheat Grass, and Leafy Green Vegetables (Broccoli, Kale, Spinach)
These are superfoods that I can’t seem to stop raving about and why everyone should be using them every day in their smoothies, they are brilliant and if you are trying to conceive you should please consider taking these superfoods. If it helps we have Kale and Broccoli in powder form (they are so important for women trying to conceive) you can add them in your smoothies, trust me you can hardly notice the taste. It’s also important to please eat your green vegetables everyday Ugwu (pumpkin leaves), Waterleaf, Spinach the local greens we have around I don’t know the English names.
Goji berry goes by the other common names Wolfberry, Chinese Wolfberry and Matrimony vine. Goji has been used as a traditional male fertility herb for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. These studies have shown that Goji truly is healthy for male fertility! The powerful antioxidants within the Goji fruit may also be protective for female egg health as well. Some studies have suggested its use for Premature Ovarian Failure patients as well as patients with autoimmune related fertility issues.
Please ladies this is so important we should not ignore the men as a very important factor in our quest to get pregnant, the quality of the sperm can be a very strong determining factor in our bid to get pregnant. Do sneak in a tablespoon of goji berries into their smoothies on the regular.
Have a lovely week everyone!!!!!!!
