Struggling to conceive is hard and frustrating but we have to do what we got to do in order to realize our dream of motherhood. I know because I am struggling too.
One of the things we pay attention to when trying to conceive is what to eat to increase ovulation, increase fertility, improve sexual function and etc.
We all need a little help. And if it doesn’t hurt us to try, why not try?
Ovulation is the key to pregnancy. So I rounded up what food to eat to increase ovulation, and I hope that you will find it helpful.
Foods that Improve Ovulation:
Switching to vegetable protein was found to have a positive effect on fertility especially with ovulation. Although it is good to have lean protein, it was found that veggie protein has more benefits.
Studies show that high-fat dairy intake can reduce the risk for anovulation. Thus, drinking whole milk can help with ovulation.
I used to drink 2% reduced fat milk, but after reading the study, I switch to drinking whole milk. For me, it tastes better.
Whole grain is pretty much healthy in general, but it also plays a role in increasing fertility. It also contains folic acid which is essential for fetal development.
Examples of whole grains include quinoa, buckwheat, brown rice, whole oats, whole rye and whole couscous.
Green Leafy Vegetable
While we eat vegetables to be healthy, it also helps improve our fertility. Vegetable contains a lot of nutrients that are essential to our body.
As with the vegetables, fruits also contain vitamins and minerals which are essential to ovulation. Also, men who incorporate fruits in their diet can increase fertility.
Nuts and Seeds
I am not a fan of nuts and seed, but I want to start because of its benefits. Adding nuts and seeds to your daily diet also has its fertility benefits.
Eggs are found to influence fertility, but studies show that it has more benefits with pregnant women.
Royal Jelly has been around for a while and has been known to have a lot of health benefits. Although there have been no human studies on how effective royal jelly is, studies show that it has been effective on animals.
Royal Jelly originated from the substance that a working bee produces to feed the eggs and Queen Bee. This element helps with the procreation ability of the queen.
Maca Root was found to have a lot of benefits and one of them is boosting fertility.
This root is a vegetable which originated in Peru and is known to help with hormonal imbalance, improves sexual function, increases energy and more.
