Smoothies are an easy and delicious way to jam-pack nutrients that can help support your fertility!
Here's what to look for:
- Leafy greens (spinach, baby kale) are great sources of vitamin K, folate, iron and zinc which can help support fertility. Folate is especially important to protect against birth defects in the brain and spine that can develop in the first few weeks of pregnancy.
- Healthy Fats (avocado, chia seeds, olive oil) omega-3 and DHA are very important for fetal brain and eye development. Research has also shown that omega-3s can help to improve hormones, ovulation, egg and sperm health all of which aid in improving your fertility.
- Antioxidants (berries) these anti-inflammatory phytonutrients help neutralize free radicals which can be damaging to egg and sperm health. Antioxidants also help to improve overall fertility health, for both women and men. Berries are lower in sugar and a great source of fiber – a great option for adding a little sweetness to your smoothie!
- Protein (grass-fed beef protein powder) is the building blocks of everything in our body, and vital to your fertility health. Protein is also important for blood sugar balance which is crucial when trying to conceive.
