Fish Oil and Fertility

By now, you probably know that fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids are super popular as supplements for all around physical and mental health. Fish oil can help boost energy and assist in improving brain functions and even help in weight loss. But, did you know that fish oil can actually help with fertility as well?

I have been trying to conceive again for the last seven years and upon learning this, I immediately got interested in fish oil.

I bought some Fish Oil this morning :) 

DHA and EPA are two of the essential fatty acids that come from fish oil.  These omega 3's help with blood pressure, inflammation, and much, much more. Your body can use fish oil to help with the production of hormones, and can reduce inflammation, which can be related to infertility. Fish oil has a ton of benefits for both men and women, whether you are trying to conceive or not.

Sounds good, right?!

Fish oil can help with improving circulation to the reproductive hormones, and the great thing is that fish oil can also be used during pregnancy as well. It is one supplement that is safe for women who are trying to conceive and great for women during pregnancy as well. Some women are concenrned with getting too much mercury from fish oil, but taking a purified and processed supplement has been proven safe by the American Pregnancy Association. Make sure to speak with your doctor to make sure that fish oil is a safe and healthy choice for you while trying to conceive and beyond.

Good luck!
