Walnuts-A UCLA study showed that only a handful of walnuts a day was linked with higher sperm quality, which means fast and healthy swimmers. Walnuts are loaded with omega 3, which regulates hormones, supports ovulation and improves endometrial health. Optimal omega 3 is vital to female fertility. Walnuts are also full of B-vitamins, important for the nervous system, as well as protein and vitamin E.
Pomegranate-These round beauties are a symbol of fertility and good luck in many cultures, including Greece, Armenia and Arabia. Their red color promotes blood flow, which is important for reproductive health. Pomegranates are also full of vitamins C, K and folate.
