Top 5 foods When Trying to Conceive

What do couples trying to conceive need to do to boost their chances of conceiving quickly? Apart from timing intercourse around their most fertile days, is there anything you can do to make pregnancy happen sooner? Absolutely, is the answer to this question. Here are the Top 5 foods that can make you more fertile.

1) Fresh fruit and vegetables. Preferably organic, of course. Many fruits and veg are full of folate, which is the natural variety of folic acid. Oranges, lemons, strawberries and green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and kale are among the best choices. Besides folate, fresh fruits and vegetables are also high in anti-oxidants, which are good for everyone.

2) Dairy products are great for fertility. Calcium is an important nutrient for those who want to get pregnant, and full-fat milk, yoghurt, and butter have been shown to encourage ovulation, too! That’s right – along with using tools like an ovulation calendar , and ovulation tests, even full-fat ice cream could help you have a baby more quickly!

3) Foods that promote insulin function automatically promote fertility too. Choosing complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, whole-grain breads and pasta, and oatmeal is far healthier for you than their more processes, white cousins. Of course that does not mean you have to give them up altogether, but limiting white rice, white bread, and other refined carbohydrates does increase your chances of getting pregnant.

4) High amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids are linked to higher fertility, and have even been shown to have the ability to reduce endometriosis, a reproductive health condition that renders many women infertile. When you cut down on highly processed trans fats, and eat fish, nuts, sesame seeds, avocados, and other foods high in Omega 3 fatty acids, you could be doing wonders for your fertility!

5) Plant protein, meaning protein from sources that could include beans, peas and nuts are linked to better fertility. They are more beneficial for women who are trying to conceive than protein from animal sources.
