Summer Fruits = Antioxidants!

From the archives: Summer fruits have lots of antioxidants which can help aid infertility.

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!
