|Nutrition and Fertility Health|
When you think of nutrition, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Weight loss and overall health, right? That’s quite simplistic!
Nutrition has a more significant impact on your body than you may know. It plays an essential role in your fertility health, conception and pregnancy.
Follow me here as I explore several fundamental ways a healthy diet can enhance your fertility and set your body for a healthy pregnancy, birth and your child’s future health.
1. Nutrition Boosts Healthy Hormone Production
Yes, hormones impact your entire body function, but they also have a particularly powerful impact on your fertility health. They control your menstrual cycle, impact your uterine lining and ovulation, and many more. That’s huge!
To generate more hormone production, eat healthy fats such as fish oil, flax oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, grass-feed butter and avocado. Also, eat lots of fiber, for example, fruits, veggies, beans and whole grains.
2. Antioxidants Protects the Ovum
What can antioxidants do and what foods provide it? Well, anitoxidants act as a protector of your cells and the ovum is the largest of those cells in a woman. To get antioxidants, eat vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables and healthy meats, raw nuts and seeds.
3. Hormone Metabolism
A good diet helps to flush out excess hormones and hormone-mimicking chemicals we eat in contemporary foods.
Your diet plan should prioritize:
· Hydration, because water also detoxifies your body, promotes hormonal balance and cervical mucus production.
· Eating enough fiber as it removes excess hormones.
· Eating organic foods, including grass-fed meat and dairy.
If you can’t access organic foods, always wash your inorganic fruits and vegetables to get rid of herbicides and pesticides.
4. Nutrition Supports Healthy Uterine Lining
Every woman should have a healthy uterine lining for implantation. Ultrasound helps women know whether they have a thick or thin uterine lining, but heavy or light cycles also matter.
Are you asking yourself why you have a nutritional deficiency despite taking a “rich diet”? Modern diets have processed foods that are not very great for your uterine lining.
· To treat your thin lining issue, eat healthy while incorporating enough protein and iron.
· To solve your excessively thick lining, eat enough fiber, hydrate well and enough organic foods.
5. A Good Diet Reduces Inflammation
To enhance your body’s anti-inflammatory response, consume foods containing essential fatty acids and antioxidants such as colorful fruits and veggies. Eat Omega-3sfoods as they also boost your reproductive health. They include fish, chia seeds, walnuts, flaxseed and healthy plant oils.
Stay away from these foods to avoid aggravating inflammation
· processed meat
· or refined carbohydrates
However, these foods can affect people differently.
6. A good diet Protects Egg and Sperm Health Integrity
Have you ever thought of what you must do to protect the health of your eggs in your fertility journey?
Whatever you do, prioritize nutrition and increase foods rich in antioxidants. Their impact is fundamental to fertility health.
Don’t set your mind on crash diets or disregarding certain food groups. Instead, focus on consuming wide-ranging whole, unprocessed foods. This protects the health of the egg, sperm, fertility and your coming child.
The Bottom Line
The food your body receives has a big connection to your reproductive health. So, if you want to improve your fertility health naturally, turn to the type of nutrition above alongside other essentials.
