Fertility Smoothie

Try this fertility boosting green smoothie.

It’s important in the preconception phase to cleanse the body.  It’s often that I recommend going organic, a gentle cleanse and minimising toxins to improve fertility outcomes in my patients.  Ensuring your body is healthy and nourished prepares you for a healthy pregnancy and healthy babies.  Green smoothies are a great way of adding more healthy foods in, don’t focus too much on restricting yourself on a diet, just try making healthier choices with each meal.  Antioxidants in a green smoothie are a great way of improving fertility by increasing egg quality. This has been shown to be influenced by the antioxidant level of the follicular fluid which feeds the growth of a healthy egg in the ovaries. Antioxidant levels can be affected by age, chemical exposure, stress, inflammation, systemic acidity, liver health and radiation.

Smoothie recipe:
Ingredients
  • Frozen mixed organic berries. (You can buy fresh berries and freeze them.)
  • Almond, rice milk, or coconut water (I prefer these—not big on dairy.)

  • 1 teaspoon of Bee pollen (*don’t use is you have a bee allergy)
