BEnourished | Fresh & Fruity Fertility Boosting Juice
Posted by: Saschan Fearon
As the seasons change it’s important to ensure our bodies make the most of what nature has to offer, what better way than with juice!
Good nutrition is fundamental in supporting your fertility. Studies have shown that couples who make healthy lifestyle and nutrition changes can increase their chances of successful conception by up to 80%. The health of your body during your pre conception years lays the foundation for the health and success of a potential pregnancy and the long term health of the child you may create.
The 3 months pre conception are believed to be the most crucial. Your nutrient intake influences the quality and efficiency of egg maturation and release during ovulation. Changes to diet and nutrition can revolutionise your reproductive health condition, reducing symptoms such as pain, water retention and hot flashes.
Juicing has become an increasingly popular way of ensuring you get your greens on the go, especially for those who live a hectic lifestyle. We’ve got a great recipe for a fresh and fruity juice made with seasonal greens to get you ready for the autumn!
What You’ll Need
- 1 Avocado
- 175g Raspberries
- 2 Courgettes
- 1/2 Lemon
- 2 table spoons of Maca Powder
- Filtered Water
Using a juicer add the ingredients and filter out the pulp. If you don’t have a juicer you can use a blender and strain the excess pulp using a sieve. This method requires a little more elbow grease a bit of patience. If you like pulp in your juices then leave them in! This will provide you with additional fibre to help your digestive system.
Tip! You can use pulp from your juices as mulch for a flower bed or herb garden!
