According to Alisa Vitti, "every meal and habit, every day, to optimize endocrine function is vital for your reproductive wellness". Most of today's health programs is all based on diet because it's essential whether your goal is to become physically active, build muscle, stay lean and toned or simply be healthy for your reproductive wellness. We know its very easy to alter our diets that don't last because it's  impossible to adhere to. Therefore, be reasonable and responsible to your own needs.

First, you must become familiar with your own body to establish a  healthy diet relationship with your own needs. According to Rosemary Gladstar, The female system by its very nature is yin (inward, sweet, moist, expansive) and generally  needs balancing with a diet that is more yang (outward, solid, dry, contractive.). Concentrate on whole natural food: whole grains, dark green leafy vegetables, root vegetables, high quality protein and natural oils from seeds, nuts and grains.

Today I will focus on why some dark leafy greens are important for your fertility and health. Dark leafy greens 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 processed foods, full of meat and sugar!) That is why we need to have more fruits and vegetables incorporated into our diets.

Creating a healthy body truly begins with eating mineral-rich foods, green vegetable being at the top of the list. If you are  a mujer (women) trying to conceive it is important to create an environment that will allow the sperm to survive to make it to the egg. Also, there is a mineral in the vaginal fluids that 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.

I wanted to share 7 items that you can try to incorporate into your day that can help with your wellbeing and increase fertility health.

Spinach leaf is one of my favorite greens; they are mild tasting and super rich in nutrients. It has an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, folate, magnesium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B2, calcium, potasium, and vitamin B6. It's a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, niacin, and selenium. It's known as a great super food that provides the body with an enormous number of healthy vitamins and nutrients that are important for fertility and pregnancy.

Organic Wheat Grass- Wheat grass juice is on the best sources of living chorophyll available.
It's high in oxygen, the brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenate 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 to restore sex hormones). Wheat grass has a benefit towards fertility and helps balance pH levels in the body to make a more suitable environment for ova and sperm.

Organic Barley Grass is a alkaline green superfood. Barley Grass is considered to be one of the most balanced nutrients 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 may help increase fertility by improving the condition of both sperm and eggs. It's high in folic acid which is an essential nutrient women need to prevent birth defects from occurring. Since it contains protein, amino acids and enzymes it can help promote sexual vitality and healthy reproductive organs.

Organic Flaxseed are rich in alpha linolenic acid, and omega 3 fat, it's rich in fibers which are important for cleansing the colon. It helps regulate hormones in the body which can contribute to fertility health as well as help with a number of different female issues including menstrual irregularity and infertility.

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

Green Tea is very high in antioxidants which can help to repair damage that has occurred to our reproductive organs. Two o 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.

Royal Jelly is another item  rich in amino acids.  It contains high levels of vitamin D and E and ample levels of iron and calcium which are essential for proper health and organ function. Studies have shown that regular consumption of high-quality has been shown to help balance hormones.

Remember while you are trying to implement healthy habits with food to keep in mind to stay away from processed foods high in sugar, chemicals and fats. One of the best ways to add recommended items is with  salads, pressed juices, smoothies and oatmeal.
