Healthy diet improves fertility outcomes

CAPTION: November 2020

Diet is a major modifiable factor that can have a significant impact on fertility for both men and women. Studies consistently show that unhealthy diets are linked to higher rates of infertility, while healthy diets are associated with improved fertility. The main dietary factors that impact fertility include:

-A diet high in fish and seafood, fruits, vegetables and whole grains improves fertility in both men and women
-Trans fats have a negative impact on fertility for men and women
-High intake of folate is beneficial for male and female fertility
-High intake of antioxidants is beneficial for male fertility

A qualified natural health practitioner can provide individualised guidance on eating well for fertility.
