Is there a magic diet / nutrition plan for guaranteeing conception? The truthful answer is that there is no such magical nutrient that will ‘ensure’ your pregnancy. But, it is also a fact that a healthy nutritious diet will impact the fertility of both you and your partner. Such a diet will increase the chances of pregnancy, if all other factors have already been addressed or is being addressed. Diet alone cannot ensure pregnancy. Diet can assist in the “trying to conceive” process. There are some nutrients that directly affect fertility in women. For instance,
• ZINC : Scientific research has proven that deficiency in zinc impacts fertility in both women and men. Both men and women are supposed to keep their dietary allowance of 15 mg of zinc daily as a part of their regular food intake. Zinc is available for use in vegetables, eggs, sunflower seeds, watermelon, dry fruits, wholesome grains, nuts, meat, legumes, seafood, seeds and dairy.
• VITAMIN B6 : Vitamin B6 affects women’s fertility by contributing to the production of female sex hormones and regulates both estrogen and progesterone. Vitamin B6 increases your chances of conception and decreases the chances of miscarriage. VitaminB6 is found naturally in foods like eggs, peanuts, bananas, salmon, sunflower seeds and soybeans. Prenatal vitamins also contain B6 as part of the supplement and are a great way to ensure that you have this essential fertility nutrient.
• VITAMIN C : Vitamin C is a fertility nutrient and helps in triggering ovulation. It plays a vital role in men too, as it helps in sperm count. Vitamin C rich foods are vegetables like tomatoes and fruits like strawberries, oranges, kiwi, mangoes, and blueberries.
• VITAMIN E : Vitamin E is another fertility nutrient required by both men and women. It enhances hormone function in women and affects sperm function in men. Vitamin E sources are through fish oil, Vegetable oils (such as wheat germ, sunflower, safflower, corn, and soybean oils) Nuts (such as almonds, peanuts, and hazelnuts/filberts Seeds (such as sunflower seeds) Green leafy vegetables (such as spinach and broccoli) A human body needs different essential nutrients for it to function systematically. Any deficiency in nutrients will lead to the malfunctioning or compromised functioning of the body organs.
