The food we eat is the key to everything that happens in our body, we have always heard that the quality of the food looks on the outside and feel on the inside and is very true. For this reason, foods can help or hurt us at times reaching as the time of becoming pregnant.
Think of the fish: If the reports of high mercury levels have kept you away from the seafood, it’s time to reconsider. Your body needs fatty acids, Omega 3 for an optimal fertility and its best source is fish.
But if you’re vegetarian or just do not like fish, try to eat linseed oil. Linseed oil is the source of omega 3 richest not coming from the fish and is easy to find in health food stores. You just have to buy these seeds, grind them and sprinkle them on cereal or toast or put them in a smoothie.
Get plenty of iron: Fill the iron stores of your body before getting pregnant, especially if your periods are particularly strong, because the bleeding of each month is the constant cause of loss of this element for many women, say the reproduction experts.
It is best to take iron before pregnancy, because at the moment you conceive, your body will have many difficulties to keep their reserves of this mineral because babies are absorbed in large quantities. To make matters worse, very little iron in the beginning of a pregnancy can put at risk for postpartum anemia, which is a condition that affects 27 percent of new mothers.
