Foods For Fertility

Jun 05, 2021

 There is so much we can do with our diets to support healthy fertility. In both men and women! After all, it takes two to tango! And what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, or in this case what’s good for the egg is good for the sperm! So both partners can benefit from supporting adding in more nutrient dense food to support conception.


(Girls, leave this post open on your boo’s computer so he can see these foods and start getting after them, too! Or just go to the market, make some dinner, and incorporate some of these yummies tonight lol)


A multitude of things impact both the preservation of our fertility, as well as the decline of it. By now y’all know that I’m a huge proponent of high quality, nutrient dense, organic, sexy food that heals, nourishes, brings pleasure, and supports our bodies from a cellular level.


No food is not free, but it sure is less expensive than pricy ART (assisted reproductive technology)!

Why wouldn’t we do everything we possibly can to support our bodies in making a baby?!


If you are someone who:

  • Has been struggling to conceive

  • Has experienced miscarriage

  • Wants to preserve fertility for down the road when you’re ready for a baby

  • Is ready to conceive soon soon


Then you have come to the right place!


Foods For Fertility



Avocados are some of THEE BEST foods for fertility. They are super high in monounsaturated fats which are crucial for optimal egg development. A study was done that showed that women who were undergoing IVF were 3.5 TIMES more likely to conceive when they ate an avocado a day! 3.5 TIMES YOU GUYS. Can you even with that statistic?! Every single IVF clinic needs to have this information disseminated to every single client/customer, IMO. Check out that study here.



Tomatoes are high in an antioxidant called lycopene, which has been found to increase sperm function and therefore improve outcomes for ART like IVF/IUI – all of which leads to more healthy babies being born. Check out this study here.



Royal jelly is a superfood for turbo-boosting your fertility. It contains amino acids, fatty acids, B vitamins and iron, all of which are supportive of fertility. The fatty acids support egg development, while the B vitamins, specifically B6, support progesterone production. Add a small bit of royal jelly to your smoothies for a fertility boosting breakfast!



Sardines are one of the healthiest fish out there. They are a small fish so they don’t accumulate a lot of toxins from water due to their size and short lifespan. They also happen to be high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that are important for stabilizing blood sugar and reducing cellular inflammation.



Salmon is rich in vitamin B6, a vitamin essential for adequate progesterone production in the body. Salmon is also a powerful source of omega-3 fatty acids which lower inflammation in the body, support brain and nerve health, and also help stabilize blood sugar.



Beets are very high in iron, and adequate iron levels from a natural source like beets has been shown to increase fertility. Low levels of iron are linked to unpredictable ovulatory patterns. Check out that study here. Be very careful with synthetic iron supplementation or too much synthetic iron from "fortified foods". 



Egg yolks specifically are insanely high choline, an essential nutrient for getting pregnant and staying pregnant. Egg yolks DO NOT cause high cholesterol, despite the many rumors all these years. Think about it – everything necessary to create new life is found in an egg yolk, because an egg yolk will become a baby chicken if it’s fertilized. Don’t be afraid of egg yolks.



Sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E which is anti-inflammatory. Sunflower seeds also support the body’s production of B6, which is essential for manufacturing adequate levels of progesterone in the body. Progesterone is the “pregnancy hormone”, because without ad3equate amounts of it, you will not be able to get or stay pregnant.


Whether you are actively trying to conceive, wanting to conceive sometime in the future, or struggling to conceive now, these foods will support your endeavors for baby making.
