Fertility Foods To Get Pregnant
These Foods for Fertility Will Boost Your FertilityThe following list of fertility foods includes all the important key foods that boost fertility and that nourish the reproductive organs assisting in healthy production of eggs and sperm. It is best to start eating these foods at least four months before conception is attempted. It takes about that time to mature healthy sperm and to for the female follicles to develop within the ovary. Every month, as these follicles growth, only one reaches maturity and releases the egg that will be fertilized.
It takes 150 days for an egg to grow from a follicle into a ready-to-be-released egg. The healthier your ovarian tissue is, the higher your chances of having high quality eggs. The role of fertility foods for men and for women is to assist the body during gametogenesis (the formation of eggs and sperm) and facilitate conception.

Green Superfoods and Sea VegetablesGreen Superfoods are rich in phytonutrients coming from cereal grasses (alfalfa, barley, rye, wheat grass, etc.) and algae or sea vegetables. They are foods that contain high amounts of enzymes, chlorophyll, vitamins, amino acids, fiber, antioxidants, minerals and other important nutrients.
Sea vegetables are notorious for giving longevity and vitality to those cultures that include them into their daily diet. They prevent mineral deficiencies related to infertility, increasing ovarian function in women, sperm count in men and providing hormonal regulation in both.
There are many important sea vegetables which are source of vitamins and minerals in a very natural and easily available form. Kombu (Laminaria) is rich in iron, Rockweed in calcium, Bladderwrack in potassium, Dulse and Kelp (Ecklonia) in iodine, and Sea Lettuce (Ulva) in magnesium.
Other nutrient rich sea vegetables are Alaria (Ribbon Kelp), Sea Whistle, and Macrocystis. All sea vegetables contain high amounts of minerals and trace elements like iodine, zinc, boron, iron, selenium, magnesium, calcium, and chromium. They also contain high amounts of Vitamin K, B Vitamins (B12, folate), Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Vitamin A. These sea vegetables have a number of different common names that honestly it is quite hard to keep track of all of them.
Each location has a different common name depending where they are grown and harvested. Their health benefits are huge that's why they are considered superfoods for many health conditions like immune dysfunctions, chronic diseases, hormonal imbalances. Sea vegetables contain lignans, which are phytonutrients that lower circulating estrogens and play a very important role in inhibiting tumor growth.
Wheat grass restores hormonal function, nourishes the blood, enhances immunity and works as a great reproductive tonic. It is also an excellent detoxifier that removes heavy metals from the body and may be involved in decreasing infertility and miscarriages caused by heavy metal toxicity. The most important component of wheatgrass is chlorophyll, which plays a role in making the body more alkaline, thus helping restore pH balance. An acidic vaginal environment is extremely hostile to sperm, while an alkaline uterine environment is necessary for implantation and may possibly prevent miscarriage. Chlorophyll improves problems with blood sugar metabolism which seems to be related to anovulatory problems like polycystic ovarian syndrome causing infertility.
Shiitake mushrooms play an important role in immune regulation, thus contributing to support the function of the immune system. Add these to your selection of fertility foods if you need to strengthen your immune system.
Brewer's yeast is one of the best sources of B vitamin complex and it is rich in protein content and particularly high in DNA and RNA sources. It also contains minerals like selenium, zinc, iron and chromium, all very important to increase fertility and regulate hormones and blood sugar.
Fertility foods are a healthy and easy way to increase fertility and should be consumed daily by both partners and for a period of 4-6 months before conception.
