For those of you who are TTC/Fertility boosting foods.

I was reading a weekly newsletter I receive in my email and it mentioned that Zinc is a key natural aid in boosting fertility. For women Zinc helps cell divsion which is critical to the earliest stages of conception and fetal development. For men it helps with adequate levels of testosterone and sperm counts. Research has shown with 15 mgs a day in men it can increase semen and testosterone production, in women it can help ovulation and fertility. Natural resources of Zinc are fish, oysters, crab, turkey, chicken and beef. In the newsletter it was mentioned that there have been conflicting opinions about fertility boosting foods. I'm the ultimate optomist. It's seems to be a more wholistic approach. I would check with your dr and see what she or he has to say. Good luck and best wishes to you. Lots of baby dust!
