Conceive Naturally : Fertility diet

Consuming the right fertility diet is essential to remain healthy throughout the pregnancy period. Garbba Rakshambigai Fertility Centre, Chennai’s best fertility clinic has researched well on fertility diet and advises the patient to take the right diet.

Researchers from Harvard have found out certain interesting facts about fertility diet. Their suggestions include that a majority of infertility problems arise due to ovulation disorders. This can be prevented through a proper diet and exercise. Find few of our tips based on scientific data:

• Decrease saturated fat intake

Fats consumed by us can be divided into categories namely, saturated fat and unsaturated fat. Generally, saturated fats are solid at room temperature while unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature. Consuming a diet which is rich in saturated fats means increasing the risk of ovulatory infertility. Foods like processed palm oil, coconut oil have a high content of saturated fats. Processed western foods such as doughnuts, pastries and cookies are also rich in saturated fats. All these foods should be avoided.

• Increase plant proteins

Vegetable proteins are better than animal proteins is what revealed through several studies. Lentils, soybeans, paneer, nuts and seeds are good source of vegetable proteins which will reduce the risk of ovulatory infertility.

• Increase complex carbohydrates

Simple carbohydrates get digested quickly and have a high glycemic index that quickly raises blood sugar level. Sugar is an example of simple carbohydrate. Complex carbohydrates like those found in fruits get digested slowly and do not increase sugar levels as much. Fertility can also be improved by the intake of complex carbohydrates that have a high fibre content.

• Increase whole milk products

Researchers from the renowned Harvard University have found out that using whole milk rather than reduced fat milk products decreases the risk of infertility.

• Nutritional supplements

Start taking folic acid supplements for a few months before you plan to conceive, as emphasized in the section. The standard daily dose of folic acid recommended is 400mcg for most women. The doctor may vary the dose for each depending on the individual’s needs. Iron supplementation is also recommended.
