This is one of my favorite fertility smoothies of all that can be used to prime your body prior to ovulation thereby boosting the health of your eggs when planning to conceive. This yummy fertility goodness is made from fertility super foods like Avocados, raspberries, sunflower seeds etc.
Sunflower seeds butter, flax seeds, almond milk and rest of the other ingredients makes this particular smoothie very rich in Vitamin E, an important antioxidant that protects egg and sperm health and immensely useful in improving sperm motility in men. Another important reason why Vitamin E should be incorporated is because the follicular fluid around our eggs is full of this vitamin, hence these foods are like wonder foods when trying to get pregnant. Eating in sync with your cycle, that is eating according to different phases of your cycle (menstrual, follicular, ovulation and luteal phases) is the best way to balance your hormones naturally and optimize the health of your eggs, cervical fluid etc. There are many different fertility friendly foods and fertility smoothies that can be used according to your monthly cycle, but this one being my favorite I will highly recommend this to drink in your follicular phase around cycle days 7-14 (CD7-CD14). Antioxidants from raspberries, essential good fats from avocados and flax seeds makes it a powerful smoothie.
