These Fall Foods Are Sure to Increase Fertility
Approximately one-third of infertility is attributed to the female partner, one-third attributed to the male partner and one-third is caused by a combination of problems in both partners or, is unexplained. If you're trying to conceive, you should know that there are plenty of medical options available. But first, you should understand that your diet also plays a role in your hormone balances. With fall quickly approaching, there's no better time to seek out some delicious and fertility-boosting foods for the season. Here are just a few tasty and seasonal foods that can help boost your fertility levels this fall.
If you've never heard of burdock root, you've probably seen it in the produce section of your local grocery store. It looks like a long stick, and though it may not appear appetizing, it's proven to boost fertility. Just wash the burdock root and chop it up similar to the way you would with a carrot. You can add burdock root to countless soups and stews, or you can simply sautee it with some more of your favorite vegetables. Give it a try the next time you're feeling adventurous in the kitchen.
Beets have long been known to be beneficial to womens health care, but they're particularly advantageous for fertility. Not only do they cleanse the body and help to thin bile, but they help to detoxify the liver.
"Thin bile that flows freely helps to cleanse the body and remove toxins. It also cleans out the liver, another critical organ for fertility. The liver carries the burden of ridding the body of old, used-up hormones and synthesizing fresh, new ones. Again, this correlates directly to PCOS and other hormonal imbalances in the body," writes September Baumgartner on MindBodyGreen.
Finally, cranberries are full of antioxidants that keep your kidneys clean and prevent bacteria buildup on the kidneys and bladder. Fresh cranberries are best, but you can also make a homemade cranberry sauce.
While these foods can help boost fall fertility, it's also worth exploring your medical options: in fact, approximately 44% of women with infertility have sought medical assistance, and of those who seek medical intervention, approximately 65% give birth.
