The 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.
This wonderful super food has the ability to balance your hormones and increase egg quality and sperm count. It is a tonic for the entire endocrine system and it is especially useful to women who do not produce enough progesterone and suffer from luteal phase defect. This also helps prevent miscarriages due to this reason. In men, Maca increases libido, helps have strong erections, regulates testosterone production and increases sperm quality.
Goji has long been used by Asian physicians for the treatment of infertility in both men and women. Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. Goji is a powerful anti-oxidant which can help reverse the effects of over-heating of sperm. It also increases sperm count and viability of the sperm. In women, Goji helps prevent premature ovarian failure. These berries also increase libido in both men and women.
Spirinula and chlorella are blue-green algae that contain chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and proteins. Spirinula is a saltwater, while chlorella is freshwater algae, but both nourish the endocrine and nervous system, giving support to the immune system, regulate the metabolism and aid in tissue repair. These single cell blue-green algae are like green blood and supply the body with all the necessary nutrients for proper functioning.
They are high dense fertility foods which gently detoxify the organism and replenish nutrient deficiency, thus enhancing reproduction. They can be used to reduces pre-menstrual syndrome, increase fertility, stimulates the thyroid gland, and repair damaged DNA/RNA cells. When talking these fertility foods, start with small amounts and increase slowly over time.
Royal jelly is the greatest among all the fertility foods because it is a natural source of steroid hormones which control a wide range of female reproductive functions including ovulation, menstruation, libido, and fertilization. In men, royal jelly helps increase sexual stamina and it is used to treat impotence. It contains enzymes and it is an excellent source of hormones like estrogen and progesterone, and genetic material like DNA and RNA, which are critical for cellular repair as well as for synthesis of new cells. Royal jelly is the food of the queen bee, whose job in life is to produce large quantities of eggs. The queen bee takes royal jelly exclusively and has a life span of about six years compared to the life span of a worker bee which is only of about two months. Sublingual doses of royal gently are very therapeutic because royal jelly, when taken in this way, is immediately utilized by the body through the blood.
Bee pollen is a great natural, healthy, and highly nutritious food that is especially useful to increase sperm production. In men, it also improves the quality of semen and support prostate health. In women, bee pollen is useful in supporting ovarian function by stimulating natural ovulation.
This great product from the bee hive has incredible powers among which to stimulate the immune system and anti-inflammatory properties. It is very useful to both men and women, but especially to women who suffer from endometriosis.
Fertility foods and products from the bee world are great in addressing infertility but some people develop a reaction. So be careful if you choose to add these super fertility foods to your diet. If you have allergies to pollens you might react to these products, so talk to a qualified practitioner before taking them. Also, make sure you choose high grade bee supplements from a clean and pure environment.
Green Superfoods and Sea Vegetables
Green 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.
