Iron-Rich Foods Boost Your Fertility

 

Iron is one of the most important microelements that affect blood cell formation and oxygen transport in the blood.

Recent studies have shown that iron plays an important role not only for pregnant women, but also for those who are planning to have a baby. An insufficient amount of iron in the blood may contribute to anovulatory cycles and, therefore, to infertility. Women who take iron supplements reduce the risk of anovulation by 40%.

However, not everyone needs more of this microelement. You may be getting enough from the food you eat, especially if you regularly eat liver, red meat and fish (they should be combined with vegetables for better absorption of iron.) Consult your doctor to determine whether you need to start taking supplements.
