Fertility Food for Women

Top 10 Fertility Food for Women

The nutrition of both women and men should be adequate and balanced. All people, regardless of their sex, should eat a sufficient amount of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins. I want to highlight the product families from my list of the most useful and essential for women's reproductive health and fertility. Of course, everyone can have personal preferences. However, I have been consulting fertility for years, these products are in my diet, and their usefulness is proven by medical research.

1. Cabbage

cabbage for fertility

I'm talking not only about broccoli, as the most often related to healthy nutrition. Cauliflower, white cabbage, Brussels sprouts are also very useful. Why is this product the number one fertility food for women? Cabbage contains a massive amount of vitamins and trace elements - iron, magnesium, potassium, and other components necessary for cell construction. 

It also contains substances that help the female body, so to say, translate the wrong estrogen hormones into the right ones. Moreover, they help block the transition of the right hormones to the wrong ones. Most drugs and biologically active supplements that prevent breast and uterine cancer pathologies contain cabbage extracts.

2. Berries

Berries for female fertility

Everyone knows that fruit and berries are healthy. However, if we are talking about fertility food for women, I would note cranberries, sea buckthorn, blueberries, raspberries, and currants. They have substances that are very similar to some antibiotics. That is, they have an excellent antimicrobial effect. For example, most drugs for treating kidney and bladder diseases contain cranberry extracts. 

Consumption of black and red berries helps to maintain the normal state of the genitourinary system.

3. Fish

fish and female fertility

Fish has omega acids, fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin D, and E, which are necessary for the absorption of calcium in the blood, healthy skin, blood vessels, youth, and excellent bowel functioning. 

It is advisable to eat fish sufficiently fatty and the one that did not eat antibiotics and hormones. That's why trying to buy fish caught in clean waters instead of the farm-grown is not a whim, but the rule of maintaining healthy nutrition. Ideal fish has small in size, which means it has not yet managed to accumulate metal salts.

4. Eggs

eggs food

A yolk is generally an oocyte. And, as you know, they contain the most balanced composition of vitamins and minerals to develop new life successfully. Be sure to include eggs in your diet. It is essential not hard-boil eggs, but leave some moisture in the yolk.

5. Cottage Cheese and Dairy Products

cottage cheese and dairy products

Cottage cheese, natural yogurts, and kefir contain live bacteria that have a beneficial effect on digestion, intestinal function and contribute to the normalization of microflora. Besides, they are healthy fats. I am not a supporter of excluding fats from food, especially in young and old age. Healthy fats in eggs, homemade cottage cheese, avocados are the building material from which your organism synthesize sex hormones. Therefore, remember that eating fat-free food is extremely harmful.

6. Vegetable Oils

vegetable oils

Vegetable fats are rich in so-called beauty vitamins, which are incredibly beneficial for the ovaries, skin condition, mucous membranes, and hair quality. Oils must be unrefined, that is, natural when used as fertility food for women. 

Olive oil is my favorite one because it doesn't lose vitamins for a long time. It ideally helps your body to clean blood vessels and synthesize the right good cholesterol. Linseed and sunflower oil have a similar effect. If you ask the Spanish people why their nation is famous for its longevity, you will hear the answer - olives, olive oil, oranges, and the sun. This formula is genuine and worthy of including in your daily routine.

7. All Kinds of Nuts

nuts healthy product

Any nuts are the healthiest products you can eat. They saturate the body with the necessary ingredients containing healthy fats, proteins, and vitamins.

8. Leafy Greens

leafy greens and herbs

Spinach, dill, parsley, celery, and all the herbs we grow are incredibly useful for female fertility. These are stimulants for the production of enzymes that are rich with folic acid, iron, and all the necessary trace elements. The most useful greens are the ones you picked from the garden, washed and immediately ate. Do not freeze, cook, and store herbs for a long time, because they are losing vitamins and minerals.  

9. Dark Chocolate

dark chocolate

A piece of dark chocolate is allowed by almost all diets; it also stimulates the production of serotonin - the hormone of happiness. By the way, hard cheese also has such properties. However, chocolate is also an excellent choleretic product, which also stimulates the intestines. But do not forget, when starting a plate of chocolate, you need to know when to stop.

10. Dried Fruit

dried fruit for fertility

They can replace any jar of vitamins, be an excellent alternative to sweets, and become a source of valuable trace elements. It is enough to eat 50 grams of dried fruit daily. 

Dried apricots contain carotene, vitamins of the PP, B1, B2, B5, C groups, iron, magnesium, phosphorus. Thanks to this, dried apricots contribute to the treatment of vitamin deficiency, anemia, edema, diabetes mellitus, heart, and thyroid gland diseases.

Prunes contain organic acids, pectin, vitamins, and minerals. Therefore, they are the best for anemia and vitamin deficiency treatment. But most of all, people appreciate them for helping to establish a healthy digestion and cope with constipation.
