Chromosomal abnormalities are one of the major causes of miscarriage during the first trimester. What isn’t really talked about is how much our diet and lifestyle can impact the health of our eggs and sperm. One of the major areas of focus are antioxidants.
Antioxidants protect eggs and sperm from the impact of oxidative stress. We want to make sure that we’re incorporating at least 4-6 cups of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables every single day to optimize our intake of these nutrients. I love berries as a great source of antioxidants (and a great source of fibre as well – if you haven’t seen my last post about the importance of fibre for eliminating excess estrogen, I encourage you to check it out).
Are you eating 4-6 cups of fruits and vegetables each day? What is your favourite way to prepare your vegetables so that you enjoy eating them?
Let me know in the comments.
Hope you enjoyed this quick tip!
Until next time,
