These days, exotic “superfoods” are popping up all over the wellness world, claiming to change your life and revolutionize your health. These foods often are discovered in places like the Amazonian rain forest or have been used in Eastern medicine for centuries and are just now making their way to the Western world. But how do we sort through these often expensive supplements and powders to decide whether or not they should be vital aspects of our diets?
Before purchasing any kind of superfood supplement or powder, make sure to take a look at the scientific research related to it. As more of these products are endorsed by celebrities and wellness experts, there is at least some research done on many of these items. Sites like Examine.com are a great place to start, as they show clinical trials done on these exotic ingredients and explain whether or not these health claims can be justified.
When it comes to fertility, there are dozens of products out there, such as maca and chasteberry, making big claims. So far, there is not enough medical evidence to prove most of these exotic powders and pills out there are worth their often high price tags. We suggest focusing on cheaper, proven superfoods: ones that may already be in your pantry! Look for nutrient-dense foods that provide good sources of folic acid, calcium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids. Fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, whole grains, and lean proteins are all excellent
superfoods that will help prepare your body for a baby without blowing your budget. Lots of research has been done on how much of these nutrients you need and point to both improving fertility and in making your womb a safe place for a developing child. Don’t let yourself get confused into thinking that superfoods have to be expensive and can only be purchased at Whole Foods!
If you do want the extra reassurance that you are getting all the fertility-boosting nutrients you need, a prenatal vitamin is an easy way to help get your recommended daily allowance of these essential vitamins and minerals. Babykixx is a unique option, in that it provides all of these vital nutrients you need for the day in a delicious fruit smoothie pouch instead of an often hard-to-swallow pill. We encourage you to do your research and discover the benefits of nutrition in this exciting journey to motherhood.
