Superfood Fertility Oatmeal

Banana-oatmeal-almonds-540x298Start off your day right with this high protein/fibre breakfast designed with your fertility in mind.  Some of the fantastic superfoods ideal for conception include maca, and bee pollen.  This oatmeal recipe is:

  1. High in Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 deficiency is linked to irregular menstruation, and poor egg/sperm development
  2. High in Vitamin E. Vitamin E is essential for sperm development and is a potent antioxidant.
  3. Contains Bee Pollen.  A fertility superfood rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
  4. Contains Maca. Another superfood shown to balance hormones, improve egg health and sperm count.
