Feed Your Fertility! Can diet help overcome "unexplained infertility"?
Posted Oct 20 2009 7:11pm
I'm so happy to let you all know that I've just published my 8th book - The New Fertility Diet Guide! I'd like to think that what sets it apart from others on the topic is that we did a ton of research and found some amazing medical studies backing up the fact that certain foods really can impact fertility.
This is true not just for female fertility, but male fertility too.
Even better news was discovering how many of these foods can also help increase the success rate of IVF . Did you know, for example, that without adequate beta carotine ( yup, the stuff that makes carrots orange!) you will not be able to make healthy eggs - healthy enough for ferilization?
And did you know that the follicular fluid surrounding an egg ( it's what helps it grow and develop ) is also loaded with beta carotine? It's true!
And when it comes to unexplained inferitility , studies show that very often a change in diet is all that's necessary to turn fertility odds around! Adding more berries and melon to your diet can make a huge difference!
I've put together a short, fun quiz to help test your fertility food smarts - I promise you'll discover some amazing fertility food tips you didn't know!
You can find the quiz at:http://www.gettingpregnantnow.org/Articles/Fertility-Diet-Quiz.html. The answers are at the bottom of the page ...but no peeking!
