Trying to get preggo, but a love connection isn’t happen in the womb? Revamping the diet (for both men and women) may help.
Dr. Zaher Merhi, Director of Research & Development in IVF Technologies at New Hope Fertility Center, says supplements are great and all—but it’s best to receive nutrients from whole food sources.
Here’s a fertility feast:
Sunflower seeds and sunflower seed butter - Sunflower seeds are a great source of Vitamin E, which has been shown to boost sperm count and motility.
Freshly squeezed grapefruit and orange juice - Both grapefruit and orange juice are high in polyamine putrescine, which is thought to improve egg and semen health.
Mature cheeses - These are high in polyamines, which keep the reproductive system healthy by boosting egg quality in women over 35.
Full fat yogurt and ice cream - Women who consumed full fat dairy products were less likely than women who consumed low fat products to have ovulation problems.
Indulge in these foods, then indulge in “dessert” later. Meow…
