Infertility is a global problem that affects many couples who wish to conceive naturally. There are several couples who have resorted to trying out the latest infertility treatments available in a top infertility clinic in Pune, such as the one in Ruby Hall. But did you know that what you eat can also have a direct impact on conception?
While it is a known fact that you should stay away from the caffeine and cola, and avoid food with MSG in it, when pregnant or while trying to conceive, including a few items in your diet and adopting better nutrition has been found to help anyone who is on the path to pregnancy. Here are a few fertility superfoods that have been found to help with conception.
Bone broth has recently been in the news for its immense health benefits. Health freaks all around the world swear by a bowlful of bone broth every day. According to experts, bone broth contains a fair amount of amino acids as well as a term called ‘jing’ in Chinese medicine. Jing, which is stored in the kidneys, is said to support reproductive function and subsequently aid fertility.
Not everyone can enjoy a plate of liver or a liver paté, but when you realise its health benefits related to fertility, you may want to change your mind. Organ meat like liver is said to have a high CoQ10, folate and inositol content, all of which is said to aid high quality egg production. It is also known to have a Vitamin A content, which has hormone balancing powers. According to experts, women who are looking to conceive should eat eating grass-fed liver to reap its optimal benefits. If the flavour of the meat puts you off, you could also opt to take it in pill form. Most health experts suggest an equivalent of three ounces a week, but be sure to check with your doctor before you take any supplements, pills or medication.
Usually, around six to 10 three-ounce servings of seafood a week should find its way into every fertility diet. It is important to note that certain types of seafood offer more fertility benefits than others. For instance, eat fish like sardines and salmon, which are known to have high levels of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids. Avoid fish like swordfish, King mackerel and tilefish, which are known to have higher levels of mercury.
Egg yolks are particularly beneficial for fertility diets and are a key ingredient in certain fertility treatments such as intralipid infusion therapy. Try to include pastured eggs into your fertility diet as they have a higher content of nutrients such as Vitamin D and choline, which boos fertility. Some experts believe that women trying to conceive should consume two eggs a day.
Ditch the low-fat or fat-free dairy for full-fat version, especially when you are trying to conceive. Organic, full-fat dairy plays a vital role in any fertility diet. You may have opted for skimmed milk while you were on a weight loss regime, but that version has no place in a fertility-friendly diet. Your body needs a certain amount of fat for optimal hormonal function, which skimmed milk, low-fat cheese, or fat-free butter does not contain. As a woman ages, her eggs tend to get more and more brittle. Consuming full-fat dairy can help to make the outer layer of a woman’s eggs softer, thereby allowing the sperm to penetrate more easily.
