Eat Your Greens Daily for Fertility and Health

Eat Your Greens Daily for Fertility and Health

A Salad a Day!If you are familiar with the Natural Fertility Diet , you will know that we emphasize the importance of greens in the diet, making sure to eat one salad a day as well as one dark leafy green vegetable such as kale, spinach, or chard. Leafy greens and vegetables supply the body with important minerals and nutrients. The body needs to have a healthy acid/alkaline balance to function at its best. Most diets today are very acidic (full of meat, sugar and white, processed foods) and need to have more fruits and vegetables incorporated into them.

Having a healthy alkaline environment is important for allowing the sperm to survive and make it to the egg. A mineral in the vaginal fluids activates the whipping of the sperm’s tail so it can begin to travel and make its long journey. If this mineral is not present, the snapping action may be weak or not activated. Creating a healthy body begins with eating mineral-rich foods, green vegetables being at the top of the list.

While this is ideal, I wanted to make sure that you are getting your greens no matter what comes up in your day, so we created a concentrate of sprouts, green vegetables, seaweeds, and nourishing herbs to help fill in the gaps. FertiliGreens was created to help make getting greens into your diet as easy as possible. This green superfood blend contains a ton of green grasses, seaweeds, sprouts, and medicinal herbs.

Two Teaspoons per day supply the body with an abundance of minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Tastes great in fertility smoothies or apple juice.

Fertilica FertiliGreens Formula Contains:

spinachSpinach Leaf – Spinach has to be one of my favorite greens; they are mild tasting and super rich in nutrients. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium, and vitamin B6. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc and vitamin E. In addition, it is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, niacin and selenium. Spinach is a super-food that provides the body with an enormous number of healthy vitamins and nutrients that are important for fertility and pregnancy. Spinach is rich in iron and folic acid, two nutrients which are important to reproduction and fetal health. Folic acid is important in preventing neural tube defects in the fetus, and iron helps to promote oxygen levels in cells, organs, and the fetus.

Organic Alfalfa leaf – As a food, alfalfa provides beta-carotene and vitamins C, E, and K. Alfalfa is viewed by many as a super-food that is used to help a number of health conditions including fertility. As a supplement, alfalfa works by providing the body with a rich source of essential minerals that are necessary for proper health. For use in fertility health, alfalfa provides the body with minerals that are important for healthy reproductive organs, including magnesium, phosphorus, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and more.

Organic Wheat Grass – Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available. Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment. Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.) Wheat grass is beneficial to fertility for the number of positive effects it has on the body. Consumption of wheat grass helps to balance pH levels in the body to make a more suitable environment for ova and sperm. It increases oxygen levels in the body to improve cell and organ structure and acts as an overall fertility enhancer.

Barley GrassOrganic Barley Grass – A nutritious, alkaline green superfood. Barley Grass is considered to be one of the most balanced nutrient profiles of all green plants because of its abundance in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids proteins, active enzymes, and chlorophyll. The nutrients contained in barley grass may help to increase fertility by improving the condition of both sperm and eggs. Barley grass is very high in folic acid which is an essential nutrient women need to prevent birth defects from occurring. Barley grass is high in protein, amino acids, and enzymes that promote sexual vitality and healthy reproductive organs.

Spirulina – Spirulina is a tiny aquatic plant that has been eaten by humans since prehistoric times and is grown worldwide as a healthy food. Imagine a vegetable with more protein than soy, more Vitamin A than carrots, more iron than beef, profound source of protective phytochemicals, naturally low in fat, source of the essential fatty acid GLA, and is easy to digest. Learn more about the unique blue Bilin protein of Spirulina.

Chlorella – This amazing natural green alga, chlorella, is an excellent food for detoxification. It supports the body in cleansing toxins.

Organic Flaxseeds – Flaxseeds are rich in alpha linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fat that is a precursor flax1to the form of omega-3 found in fish oils called eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA. Flaxseeds are also rich in fibers which are important for cleansing the colon. Flax has proven to be one of the most beneficial supplements for women with fertility issues. It is high in Omega-3 fatty acids and helps to regulate hormones in the body which can contribute to fertility health. It can be used to help a number of different female issues including menstrual irregularity and infertility.

Kamut Grass – Kamut grass is multi-functional in helping to improve fertility by improving the health of your body. It regulates pH levels in the body, and cleanses and detoxifies the body of harmful toxins. It is high in chlorophyll, which promotes oxygen levels in organs and cells and is loaded with eight essential amino acids and free-form proteins that help to enhance your reproductive function.

Astragalus – Astragalus is a plant that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. This herb is very beneficial in helping with male infertility, as it may help to increase sperm count and improve sperm motility. It also helps to decrease stress and tension, which can affect fertility and regulates normal cell growth, which is important for both men and women.

Green TeaGreen Tea – Research has shown that green tea is very beneficial to the body, and fertility is no exception. Green tea is very high in antioxidants which can help to repair damage that has occurred to our reproductive organs. Two of the compounds found in green tea, hypoxanthine and polyphenols, may also help to produce healthier sperm and eggs, which increase the number of embryos that are viable for conception.

Bee Pollen – Bee pollen is one of the only foods that contains every nutrient needed for optimal health. It is rich in B Vitamins, Vitamins C and E. It is also known to increase energy, mental function and endurance.

Kelp – Kelp is a seaweed that is especially high in iodine, which is a must for proper glandular function and metabolism. It also contains iron, sodium, phosphorus, and calcium, as well as magnesium and potassium. Kelp is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus amino acids.

Royal Jelly – Royal Jelly is rich in amino acids, lipids, sugars, vitamins, and most importantly, proteins. It contains high levels of vitamins D and E, and also has ample levels of iron and calcium. As all of these are essential to proper health and organ function; it is very easy to see how Royal Jelly can help with in assisting with fertility.

    I thought Vitamin A was not good when trying to get pregnant and spinach is a good source of Vitamin A so surely its better not to eat a lot of spinach?! I don’t eat sweet potatoes for this reason.
    Any advice?

    • Dear Sasha,

      Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is one of many nutrients that plays a critical role in the body by:
      – helping the body maintain homeostasis
      – prevention of anemia
      – supporting metabolism during pregnancy
      – tissue maintenance and development (cell growth) in pregnancy
      – fetal development, especially of the bones, teeth, skin, and vision
      Some studies have shown that consuming too much vitamin A in pregnancy may cause congenital birth defects, but these studies were performed using very high amounts of synthetic, water-soluble forms of vitamin A which is vitamin A from non-food sources.

      The vitamin A one ingests from consuming moderate amounts of whole foods like spinach (carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, broccoli, apricots, spinach, pumpkin and liver (animal and fish) like Cod Liver Oil, milk and eggs), or through a quality whole food multivitamin is not known to increase the risk of birth defects.

      Enjoy spinach and sweet potatoes once in while. They provide many other nutrients as well!
