Have you been eating your blueberries? Recent studies have shown that foods full of antioxidants may promote overall sexual health; by balancing your oxidative stress and nitric oxide.
With oxidative stress being an underlying factor for infertility, if we can find a way to help balance that out, we may be able to increase our chances for conception.
Below is a list of some foods rich in antioxidants, eat up!
- Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, strawberries
- Red kidney beans, pinto beans.
- Avocados, plums, pineapple, kiwi, cherry
- Green tea
- Artichokes, broccoli, sweet potatoes
- Walnuts, pecans
- Dark chocolate!
Not only may a diet rich in foods full of antioxidants help combat infertility, it also may help against other diseases such as heart disease. But as always, too much of a good thing can be bad, just watch your daily value intake; especially that of beta-carotene and Vitamin E.
Have a great Friday!
