Why you should opt for the whole-grain option

Whole-Grains

I know- whole grains take some getting used to. New IVF data, however, suggests that you should hear me out and give that whole grain bagel and pasta a try.

 

In a recent study, investigators took a very close look at the dietary habits of people undergoing fertility treatments. Women who ate more whole grains (>52.4 g/day) had higher pregnancy rates than women who ate less whole grains. We have mentioned this whole grain study in our blog before: at least one serving of whole grains per day boosts the odds of success by 33%! It may even benefit women who have problems developing the lining in their uterus (endometrial lining): increasing whole grain intake by 1 serving a day was associated with an increase in endometrial thickness!

 

What you can do:

  • Make the healthier choice: substitute one meal a day for something with more whole grains
