How to increase fertility with natural methods?
15% of couples have infertility problems. But fortunately, natural solutions to improve fertility and allow you to get pregnant faster exist. Simple dietary changes and a healthy lifestyle can boost your fertility by 69%. Here’s how.
A more hearty breakfast and foods rich in antioxidants
The vital role of nutrition on your health and your body is no secret.
Thus, it can also have an influence on your fertility. Several studies have shown that eating a hearty breakfast improves the effects of Stein-Leventhal syndrome on hormones, a well-known cause of infertility. If you want to get pregnant quickly, your eating habits are very important : eating well, with balanced meals and without deprivation. As for antioxidants, such as zinc and folic acid, they help to increase fertility in both men and women. They deactivate free radicals, which are responsible for the degradation of egg cells and sperm, and increase the chances of successful conception by 23%. Similarly, minerals such as calcium and potassium can influence the sex of your unborn baby. Their consumption influences the vaginal pH and will facilitate or complicate the passage of sperm, depending on the chromosome they carry. Based on this observation, MyBuBelly has developed a method based on nutrition, with the support of nutritionists and gynecologists to allow you to increase your fertility, but also to choose the sex of your future baby naturally.
A reduction in carbohydrates, especially if they are refined
In your eating habits, you shoud also monitor your carbohydrate intake, some of which can be very bad. To increase your fertility, you must therefore also take into account the type of carbohydrates you consume. It should be noted that refined carbohydrates are absorbed very quickly by the body, which causes peaks in blood sugar levels and consequently in insulin levels. If those levels are too high, they can be responsible of infertility and sterility. But, more importantly, refined carbohydrates have a high glycemic index, which increases the risk of ovulatory sterility and therefore prevents pregnancy. So, you should pay close attention about the carbohydrates you ingest to make sure you have all the odds in your favour.
More fibre and no trans fatty acids
Eating good fats (especially omega-3) is very important to increase fertility naturally. But more importantly, it is essential to avoid trans fatty acids, which have a negative effect on insulin sensitivity and fertility. They are found in hydrogenated vegetable oils, margarine, processed industrial products, fried foods and pastries. Virgin olive oil is excellent for fertility, because it is a healthy fat that you can use both in cooking and in seasoning.
As for fibre, it allows the body to get rid of excess hormones and maintain a correct level of sugar in the blood. You can find them in whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. Be careful not to have too much of it, to avoid disrupting your ovulation cycle.
Good sources of protein and dairy products
It is recommended to limit your consumption of animal protein to fatty fish such as salmon and trout, which are very rich in omega 3 to reduce the risk of infertility.
It is also recommended to choose dairy products that are not low in fat or skimmed, and you should eat them at least twice a day, in addition to milk, especially to increase your chances of having a baby girl. Similarly, drinking a large glass of whole milk is ideally known to make you more fertile and improve your chances of getting pregnant by a girl. Follow the dietary advice of the MyBuBelly method to make your dream of having a baby girl or boy come true, in a healthy way and increase your fertility.
More physical activity and vitamin supplements
Physical exercise has always been good for your health and is also good for improving your fertility, provided it is practiced in moderation. Doing too much sport could harm your reproductive system.
In addition to sport, it is recommended to avoid taking multivitamin food supplements for athletes. Instead, it is recommended to take various dietary supplements specially designed for pregnancy, such as prenatal vitamins, which contain folic acid in particular.
