Hey ladies! Hope everyone's doing fantastic! Who here knows of some foods that are supposed to help you when TTC? For someone like me, has no idea when they're Oing, etc. Is there anything that you can eat to help? What about natural teas or anything along those lines.
Hmmm... baby carrotts are meant to help with CM and pineapple core for implantation but both I guess are most useful if you know when you O'd. Not sure about general good for ttc foods. I know my DF goggled about good foods for sperm and he found a few lists - perhaps you could get your DH in on the deal to?
Here is a list of fertility "superfoods" I have been compiling from different sources. I no longer remember the reason for a lot of them and I am obviously not a doctor but I just thought I would share what I put together
*Beans (as well as Lentils, tofu, edamame, and nuts )
*Whole milk or whole milk products (not too much though)
*Leafy Greens (Spinach, romaine, arugula, broccoli) - high in folate
*Pumpkin Seeds - high in non-heme iron
*Whole wheat (bread, rice, pasta) - helps keep blood sugar and insulin stable
*Olive Oil - increase insulin sensitivity and decrease inflammation
*Wild Salmon - rich in omega-3 fatty acids
there are some teas that will help, you have to be careful with them depending on your specific concerns.
Fertilitea = vitex + many other teas
Spearmit leaf tea = helps balance androgen's (testosterone) in women.
Red Raspberry Leaf tea = I can't remember but I will try and remember to look it up and come back.
