There is a variety of thing you could be doing, cooking and taking at home to increase your fertility. At the following article, Tamara Roe, natural fertility specialist and part of the team of Reproductive Wellness practitioners, would explain “Must Take” supplements and superfoods that would help you increase your fertility and getting pregnant faster. Remember that your ultimate goal should be having a healthy full term pregnancy. Once you are pregnant, your nutrition and supplements must change to adapt to your body new needs.
Take a Multivitamin
A major key to supporting egg health and preparing the uterine lining is to take a prenatal multivitamin. Making sure your body has all of the nutrients necessary is a lot easier when you are taking a multivitamin. My favorite is the 100% whole food Baby and Me from Mega Food, synthetic multivitamins won’t have the same effect. It is also a great idea to begin taking a prenatal multivitamin in preparation for pregnancy since there are specific nutrients needed by the embryo/fetus before pregnancy can even be detected.
Antioxidants are one of the most important components to having healthy fertility that every man and woman needs to focus on, especially if you are wanting to support your egg health.Antioxidants help to protect the egg and sperm from free radical damage. Free radicals are able to damage both cell health and the cell’s DNA, this could have an effect on the ability to get pregnant, sustain a healthy pregnancy and the chances of possible birth defects. The ovum (egg) are one of the longest living cells in your body, as the years pass they become exposed and vulnerable to free radicals on daily basis. This adds up. Network Antioxidants was created by Dr. Lester Packer, the leading antioxidant expert in the United States. It contains all of the most important antioxidant nutrients in a capsule form which you can take one capsule, twice a day. This blend is great for both men and women and should be a part of everyone’s health program, especially for egg health.
L-arginine is an amino acid that has been shown in studies to increase ovarian response, endometrial receptivity, and pregnancy rates in IVF patients who supplemented in large doses of L-arginine. (Published in Human Reproduction 1999).
Fertility superfoods are nutrient dense foods that help to nourish the body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. One of my favorite ways to take fertility superfoods is to put them infertility smoothies.
Maca is an incredible fertility super food. It helps to balance the hormones, but does not contain any hormones itself. It is able to do this by nourishing and balancing the endocrine system. This is essential in preparing for pregnancy and IVF because healthy hormonal balance greatly contributes to healthier eggs.
Royal Jelly is a fertility superfood which may help to increase the egg quality and quantities. Royal Jelly is the food that only the queen bee eats. What makes a queen bee the queen is eating royal jelly exclusively. She was an ordinary bee and then she was chosen and fed royal jelly and became the queen bee who lays up to 2000 eggs a day. It should be taken for at least three months before natural conception or IVF procedures begin.
Royal jelly is the Queen bee’s equivalent of hormonal stimulation. Take daily for best results. Caution:: If you are allergic or think you are allergic to bee’s or bee products, do not take royal jelly.
FertiliGreens is a nutrient rich green powder. It contains antioxidants, minerals, and proteins that help to alkalize the body and nourish your eggs. Take two teaspoons of the powder daily.
