Fertility Smoothies – A Fun and Delicious Way to Boost Your Fertility

Fertility Smoothies – A Fun and Delicious Way to Boost Your Fertility

fertility smoothiesThe first step I always suggest when clients ask what they should do to boost their fertility is to eat a Natural Fertility Diet. Eating a healthy diet is the foundation of a natural fertility program. To make it even easier for them, I suggest the very first step is to drink a fertility smoothie every day. Starting the day with a smoothie guarantees that you are going to be getting the most important components of the Natural Fertility Diet consistently. Here are those important components…

1. Antioxidants

Antioxidants are extremely important for couples that are trying to conceive. Cells within the body, and more specifically the reproductive system, are constantly being attacked by free radicals. Free radicals are created from toxins, stress, pesticides, illness, over-exercising, too much sun… and the list goes on. The important thing to know is that free radicals can damage cells and the DNA within cells. This can impact fertility on many levels. It may impact the health and integrity of the egg (ova), the sperm, the cells of the uterus, ovaries, thyroid, pituitary, etc. In turn this may cause the reproductive system to not function properly.

Antioxidants on the other hand help to protect the body from free radicals by “deactivating” the free radicals so they can no longer do harm. Now, something important to understand is that there are many different types of antioxidants that protect different areas of the cells. So a wide variety of antioxidants are needed on a daily basis. Through eating a diverse array of whole foods the body is able to receive an abundance of antioxidants. Drinking a smoothie a day makes this easy to do.

In one smoothie you are able to include a huge variety of antioxidants in their most absorbable form.

Join the 10 Day Fertility Smoothie Challenge

One of the most impactful steps you can take on your fertility path is to drink fertility smoothies daily. So to make this fun and help you reach your goal of boosting your fertility and getting pregnant we have created the 10 Day Fertility Smoothie Challenge. This is how it works…

I invite you to join us and participate by drinking a Fertility Smoothie everyday for 10 days. Enter your name and email address in the form above and I will email you a smoothie recipe every day for 10 days plus additional helpful tips on making delicious fertility smoothies.

2. Minerals and Vitamins

There are many minerals and vitamins that are necessary for healthy fertility and a balanced cycle. Zinc, calcium, selenium, vitamin E, A, C and D, folic acid, iron and many more nutrients play a vital role in supporting your monthly menstrual cycle and ovulation. A deficiency of these nutrients can impact your fertility. A diet rich in a wide range of whole foods can help to supply you with all of these vital nutrients. Smoothies make it easy to get a wide range of whole foods in a convenient and tasty form. In addition, since smoothies are liquid, the nutrients are easier to absorb during digestion.

3. Fiber

Fiber is an essential part of every healthy diet and is essential for healthy hormonal balance. Fiber has many actions in the body, but specifically for fertility, fiber helps the body to get rid of excess hormones. It works like a broom helping to clear excess hormones out of the body. Fiber is also important for helping to move foods through the digestive process and keeping blood sugar levels balanced.

Balanced blood sugar levels are important for everyone’s fertility, not just women with PCOS. When the blood sugar levels spike repeatedly on a daily basis the body reacts to this like an emergency and goes into fight or flight. This pattern occurring repeatedly can cause hormonal imbalance due to the stress hormones being released constantly. This in turn can create issues with ovulation, the uterine lining, menstruation and sperm health. The foods that are used in smoothies are naturally rich in fiber.

4. Fertility Superfoods

Fertility superfoods are amazing. They make it easy to get a large amount of nutrients and fertility tonics all-in-one. Superfoods are foods that are nutrient dense, supplying a ton of nutrition in a small package. Some fertility superfoods can also specifically nourish the endocrine system or promote egg health. By adding superfoods to your smoothies you are able to take your nutrition and health to the next level, again in an easy to drink form.

Fertility smoothies provide everyone of these components in the highest quality possible, with the least amount of effort.

  4. Hi
    i am doing the smoothie challenge and am loving it but its a bit annoying that you are now adding ingredients that weren’t on the shopping list like avocado and sprouts, i’m now not prepared each day. also Hemp seeds are not approved for human consumption in Australia what could I replace this with?

    • Dear Laura,

      Thank you for the feedback! I hope you are able to pick these ingredients up next time you visit the store to try the recipe later. In the meantime, you could make a smoothies you’ve already made and loved again. I have not ever heard of hemp seeds not being approved for human consumption before. They can be omitted or replaced with chia seeds or freshly ground flax seeds.

      Best wishes!

  5. Hello,
    I have tried to sign up several times for the 10 day smoothie challenge. I have used a few different email addresses and not received anything. Is this still available?

    • Hello Melissa!

      I’m sorry about that! I see that you received all the emails from the 10-Day Fertility Smoothie Challenge two months ago. Did you want to do it again, or never receive the emails? Let me know please!

  6. Would love to try your smoothie.

  7. Hi There,
    I’m trying the 10 day fertility smoothie challenge, but I absolutely hate bananas! Is there anything I can substitute instead?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Hello Brittney!

      There may be substitutes for bananas to consider that mirror the consistency of a banana – organic plain Greek yogurt, cooked oatmeal, or avocado. I have heard of soaked Chia seeds being used as well (soak them in water for 5-10 minutes before adding to the smoothie). I hope some of these are more appealing to you.

      Enjoy the Fertility Smoothies!

    • Thanks for this! I’m allergic to bananas, so this definitely helps me out!

  9. Dalene,

    I would first like to thank you so very much for your website and all your help!

    I am 30, I will be 31 this year, and I have had an abnormal period my whole life. As of last year, I have been having 4-5 month periods and have skipped a few periods as well in that year. I have asked my doctor why my body would do that and she didn’t know. Do you have any idea what would cause my body to have 4-5 month periods and to skip them also?

    I have been on birth control to regulate my period for the past 7 months and it has done wonders but I also don’t want to be on birth control because of the artificial hormones. I want to try to get pregnant this year also so I’m hoping my body doesn’t naturally revert to my 4-5 month long periods after I stop taking the pills. I fear that I won’t be able to get pregnant because of my abnormality.

    I plan to start the fertility diet, drink the smoothies, and take the vitex and the mutlivitamin. I hope that this will work but is there any other advice or timeline for me to even try to get pregnant after starting this?

    I really appreciate you taking your time to read this. Thank you!

    Angie

  10. I have scarred not blocked fallopian tubes. I had a laprascopy done to show this. The little finger tips like things @ the end of the tubes are completely infused around my ovaries from scarred tissue will your kit help me

  11. Is it ok to drink fertility smithies and take metformin for PCOS?

    • Hi Marie,

      If your doctor says it is okay, then it is fine. If you are going to put fertility superfoods like Maca, you will need to let your doctor know what as well.

      All the best,

      Dalene

  12. Hi
    I will be 44 in March of 2012 and I just went thru an IVF. After 12 follicles matured, 5 eggs were retrieved with only 3 taking to the fertilization. Only 1 was healthy enough to be placed back in me. My IVF result was negative. I did everything I was supposed to do and have to assume it is the quality of my (old) eggs. I am beyond disappointed and have no money left so I will need to get funded for my next and probably last try. I found your site and want to do more than I did last time so I would like to try the diet, massage and all the herbal vitamins you are suggesting. My question is, have you had people my age write to you and do you believe that it can really help me?

    Robin

  13. i just love the fertility smoothies they taste great, i will continue drinking them.thank you.

  14. I am beginning IVF for the first time. I have been on birth control pills for a little over a week. I will begin injections 2/23. Where do I begin? Can I do the cleanse starting with my next period (which will be after I start injections?) Can I drink the smoothies starting now and continue throughout my IVF process? And if successful, do I stop drinking the smoothies?
    I read I should not use maca, UltraGreens, Vitex, royal jelly or bee pollen – so use just a banana and whey in smoothies? Can you please provide a step-by-step approach with ingredients before I order anything? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    • Hi Beth,

      We do not suggest using any of our products once you begin your IVF meds. FertiliWhey, Fertilica Cod Liver Oil, spirulina and a whole food prenatal vitamin are the only supplements we suggest continuing on with through this process and into pregnancy. You can continue smoothies, but only with the FertiliWhey. Pure Spirulina is another good option. Raspberry Leaf tea may a good option beginning in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, learn more about that here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/red-raspberry-leaf.html

      In the future, if you need to speak with us in a timely manner, please contact customer service.

      Best Wishes for your IVF.

  17. Hi! Is it safe to drink the fertility smoothies while taking Letrazole/Famera? If not, can I drink after I stop taking them?

    • Hi Sarah,

      It is fine to drink the Fertility Smoothies with Fertilica Whey protein powder and the fresh fruits, veggies and juice, ect. We do not advise making the smoothies with maca, royal jelly or other herbs for fertility while also taking medications for fertility. It is fine to continue them on cycles you are not using fertility medications.

      All the best,

      Dalene

  18. Hi,
    I had a neonatal loss in 2008 and have not been able to conceive since. I went to a fertility specialist in 2009 who told me that I had POF and that I would never get my period nor get pregnant again. I started seeing my family chiropractor and started getting my periods- not every month though- but it became to much to keep up with and stopped in 2010. I have since then changed my prenatal vitamins and have started taking omega 3. I thought things were looking up for me when I had 2 cycles in a row at 35 days and I tried to plan intercourse when I thought I was ovulating, but now its been 97 days since my last period, (i have gone longer) and I am not pregnant (I have taken 2 tests- both negative). I came across your website when I was searching for natural ways to get pregnant and I find it to be very informative. I am thinking of trying Vitex and the 21 day fertility diet challenge along with changing my prenatal vitamins to the whole foods ones you display. I guess I just want to know if this is what you would suggest as well?

    • Hi Amy,

      I am sorry to hear of your loss and continued struggles. POF can be a devastating diagnosis, and it is often wrong. There are many causes of POF. You can learn more about POF and what you can do about it here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/premature-ovarian-failure.html

      Supporting Egg Health through cleansing, super foods and diet changes is essential! One of the bodies miracles is that every cell in our body renews over time and is replaced by healthy new cells. This gives us the opportunity to work toward changing our fertility issues by nourishing and taking care of our bodies now, so that those new cells have the best chance possible to be vibrant and healthy! Believe in your capacity to change your circumstances and heal your body.

      If you are feeling totally lost and confused, we do have great consultations!

      All the best!

  19. Hi
    I took the Depo Provera shot on 9/23/11 after having a miscarriage (the doctors stated that I would put myself at risk if I get pregnant within 3 months). I started spotting on 10/8/11 and then menstruation began on 10/13 and has continued since. What can I do to remove the De Provera out of my blood stream ?

    Thank You

    • Hi Wendy,

      Unfortunately once you use Depo Provera you need to let it run it course. There is no way to remove it from your body. You can learn how it affects your body and ways to nourish your body until it is out of your system at this link: http://natural-fertility-info.com/birth-control-fertility.html

      Because you are bleeding constantly, you may want to consider eating foods that are rich in iron, or consider taking a whole food iron supplement like Blood Builder by MegaFood.

      Best Wishes,

  20. Hethir,
    I am 40 and my husband and I are trying to concieve our 2nd child through IVF. We’re in the beginning stages of the process (just did my blood work). I’m not on birth controll and haven’t started the drug protocol yet. Is it safe for me to do the fertilitty smoothies and use the other herbs (purchased the bee jelly and natural greens) prior to starting the injections?

    Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Carla,

      If you have not started your injection medications yet, then yes, it is fine to continue on with supplements.

      Best Wishes for your upcoming IVF!

  21. I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 8 years. I found out that both of my fallopian tubes are blocked. I was told by my fertility specialist that I have PCOS however it doesn’t seem that I am having the symptoms of PCOS because I don’t have irregular periods and I ovulate regularly. Do you think I may have been misdiagnosed concerning the PCOS? What do you recommend I try?

  22. When is the best time during the month to start drinking the fertility smoothies? My AF just started today.

  23. Hi,
    I have been trying to conceive for the past 11yrs without result. I was diagnosed to have PCOS. I used to have irregular periods but now they are regular but do not ovulate.
    How can you help or what herbs can i take to enhance my chances of getting pregnant.
    Helen

    • Hi Helen,

      The most important place to begin when working to reduce PCOS is reviewing your eating habits. Diet changes are the foundation for healing PCOS, and getting your body to ovulate. A big part of the problem with PCOS is the high insulin resistance. Resistance to insulin increases the bodies insulin levels which effects normal ovulation by preventing the body from ovulating or limiting the maturation process of the released egg. This directly has an affect on your fertility and ability to conceive.

      Women who are insulin resistant are also 4-5 times more likely to have a miscarriage. Imbalanced insulin levels due to PCOS make it difficult for the embryo to attach properly to the uterus.

      You can learn how to eat a PCOS specific diet, along with the best natural remedies for that condition at this link: http://natural-fertility-info.com/pcos-fertility-diet

      All the best!

  24. I’m so excited about the smoothie challenge, my first smoothis was “Peaches & Cream” its so good and delicious. Thanks guys!!!

  25. Sounds so exciting . I would like a few recipes for smoothies. Thank you

  26. Hi I had ordered the fertility cleanse and also blocked Fallopian tubes.. however I forgot that over 1yr and a half I was diagnosed with pcos but supposedly the reason why I would never be able to get pregnant is because of the blocked Fallopian tubes should I get a pcos treatment or just keep on taking the blocked Fallopian?

    • Hi ana,

      Because you have blocked fallopian tubes it may be best to focus your first 4 months improving your fallopian tube health. You could then, as time goes on research and work toward healing your PCOS. You will definitely want to begin eating a PCOS specific diet to help reduce insulin resistance. You can learn more here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/pcos-fertility-diet

  27. This website doesn’t navigate very well. I’ve signed up for the 21 Day Challenge and simply want Fertility Smoothie recipes to browse. I click on the Smoothie link from the 21 Day Challenge page and it brings me here, where there are still no recipes, but it says you have “great recipes at the 21 Day Fertility Challenge Website”. Haven’t found them yet. It just bounces me back and forth.

    • Hi Megan Danforth,

      Thank you for the tips. I am not sure where on the 21 Day Fertility Diet Challenge you are clicking on a Smoothie link that takes you to this page, but this page is a great one to access our 10 Day Fertility Smoothie Challenge. When you sign up for that you are emailed a new smoothie recipe for 10 days. To find recipes at the 21 day FDC go to the top menu bar. Put your cursor over Forums Tab. A drop down menu bar will appear, click on Fertility Recipes. This will take you to our menu of recipe categories. Click on Fertility Smoothies & Juices, this will take you to a list of recipes on that topic.

      I hope this helps you, have a wonderful day!

  29. Hi Hethir,
    I am having surgery to remove a uterine polyp. I have ordered the fertility cleanse kit, and all of the herbs and supplements to make the fertility smoothies . How soon could I start drinking the smoothies after my surgery?
    Also, after my next menstrual cycle, I will do the fertility cleanse. Can I drink the smoothies while doing the cleanse?
    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Leslie,

      You may begin the smoothies right after surgery when you get home, as long as you are feeling up to them. They may help heal and nourish your body which may aid in your recovery. Just see how you feel, you know your body best!

      We encourage the smoothies during the Fertility Cleanse. May you have a safe and successful sugery!

      Best Wishes,

      Dalene

  30. Hello, I just signed up for the 10 day Fertility Smoothie Challenge, and am looking forward to my smoothie recipes! I will be starting birth control pills in a few days for my next IVF cycle, and know I should not be taking any herbs during this time, but I am unsure what is considered an herb. I received the initial shopping list for the fertility recipes in my email and was hoping you could point out which items are herbs or if there are any substitutions I can make?
    Thank you, Sherry

    • Hi Sherry,

      Do not use Maca, FertiliGreens (contains some herbs not for pregnancy), Vitex, Royal Jelly or Alive Bee Power. You can still use the FertiliWhey and you can substitute dark leafy greens like spinach, kale or chard instead of using the FertiliGreens.

      Best Wishes on your upcoming IVF!

      Dalene

  31. Can i still use the Maca Powder? Is that considered an herb? I am not on shots yet, just birth control pills. I won’t start the shots until March in an effort to cleanse my body 2 months before.

    thank you so much

    • Hi Jessica,

      Maca is considered both a superfood/food/herb. Birth controls manipulate our hormones, they are in themselves made up of synthetic hormones or hormones from mainly mare’s urine. The excess hormones override our naturally released hormones and suppress ovulation. Maca nourishes the endocrine system which controls release and production of our hormones. We feel that because there has not been enough research as to how maca and birth control may react to one another it would be best not to use it while on birth control or any other fertility medications. Maca may be useful for when you come off of the birth control to help your body readjust to regulating your hormones on its own.

      Best Wishes,

      Dalene

  32. I want to try the smoothies. I will be undergoing IVF due to a blockage that my husband has, we are unable to conceive naturally. His sperm is good. This will be my 2nd attempt, as the 1st try ended in miscarriage. I am on birth control right now to regulate my period and it also helps me to produce more eggs. My question is, will the smoothies help even though I am on birth control?

    thank you

    Jessica

    • Hi Jessica,

      Fertility Smoothies help to boost overall nutrition which is very important for fertility. Because you are on fertility medications we do not recommend using any herbs for fertility in your fertility smoothies, but you can still add protein powder like our FertiliWhey or spirulina. It is never too late to boost your nutritional intake, it will only have positive impacts, not negative!

      Best Wishes on your upcoming IVF!

      Dalene

  33. Can my husband drink the fertility smoothie with me? I don’t want to make two separate batches in the morning and was hoping we could share. Just want to make sure it wouldn’t affect him in an adverse manner.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Vanessa,

      Yes you can and that would be wonderful. There are some herbs that in general are not for men’s fertility, unless directed by an herbal practitioner: Vitex, Dong Quai.

      Supplements that are fine for both of you: Maca, Whey, FertiliGreens, Royal Jelly.

      Happy drinking!

  36. i want get natural pregnant i have tubes blocked and endmetrosis

  37. Appreciate your research and prompt response Dalene! Thanks for being so helpful!

  38. Questions about Whey protein?

    I stay in the middle east and cannot get overseas shipping. I am trying to find a good whey protein powder here and found the Blue Bonnet Whey protein Isolate. Is that a clean protein source?
    I mean I have already bought it and I don’t have other options. This one has stevia which I believe is ok vs. the other ones. Would Gold Standard Whey protein or Blue bonnet protein whey isolate be better? How much protein can I consume from whey protein in a day, is there a max?

    Thanks for your tips!

    • Hi D,

      The Blue Bonnet site states this about its Whey: “Bluebonnet’s 100% Natural Whey Protein Isolate is sourced from grass-fed cows in New Zealand that are not treated with antibiotics or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), also known as bovine somatotropin (BST).”

      If you cannot afford our FertiliWhey because of shipping I understand. Gold Standard’s whey does not say it was from cows that are free range or not treated with antibiotics or hormones, so the Blue Bonnet sounds cleaner, but I cannot say for sure.

      Please follow the recommended daily dosage on the product you purchased.

      All the best,

      Dalene
