  • One in eight couples struggles with infertility.
  • Our bodies are extremely sensitive to our environments, especially when it comes to food.
  • Omega-3 helps support hormone levels.
  • Vitamin D is essential for supporting healthy ovulation.
  • Folate plays a crucial role during pregnancy.
  • Leafy greens provide you with a ton of vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium, all of which help to promote a healthy menstrual cycle.
  • Detoxification is essential to fertility because it helps aid the liver in metabolizing hormones better and ridding the body of excess toxicity.


Action Steps:

  • Rethink what you’re eating and change your diet to boost your fertility.
  • Keep your diet as clean and nutrient-dense as possible to really increase your chances of conceiving and increase your chances of supporting your health, your body, and your hormones long-term. What you do now with your hormones, your health, and your diet is going to be a reflection of what shows up in the next couple of years.
  • Consistently eat foods rich in omega-3, and increase your fat intake.
  • Consider supplementing with folic acid during pregnancy. Look for folate, or specifically the 5-methyltetrahydrofolate or the L-methylfolate or metafolin.
  • Include many detoxifying herbs and foods in your diet to ensure you’re eliminating toxic build-up, which could and may have an effect on your chances of conceiving.
