Trying to get pregnant? Avocados may help increase fertility and your chances of a healthier pregnancy!
Fertility and nutrition are a key component when planning to have a baby. It is pretty clear that extremes of weight can be an issue for your hormones and for ovulation. Even in normal weight individuals, healthy eating can help prepare your body and can make a difference in whether you get pregnant or not. Luckily, there are so many different delicious foods that are rich in nutrients and vitamins and can boost fertility.
To the relief of many, studies show avocados, one of southern California’s favorite fruits (yes avocados are fruits), are showing positive results when trying to conceive. So sigh in relief, and have a millennial favorite, avocado toast with a side of baked avocado fries! Just remember to eat in moderation as too much of a good thing can end up with unwanted results.
So what makes avocados so special when it comes to both female and male fertility?
Three reasons avocados may help you get pregnant
1. High in Nutrients
Avocados are nutrient dense with folate (folic acid) which is key for preconception health.
2. Healthy Fat
Avocados contain a lot of fat — but it is the good kind! The unsaturated fats in avocados can help manage sugars and decrease inflammation and risks of heart disease.
3. Rich in phytonutrients
Avocados are also rich in phytonutrients that may help protect cells from damage.
Avocados can be combined with other fertility boosting foods like yogurt and lime juice to make some delicious dips, dressings, salads, sauces and even ice cream.
