Trying to get pregnant? Ayurveda can go a long way in balancing your hormonal levels, relieving stress and beating fertility related conditions. So, try these Ayurvedic herbs to get two pink lines in your pregnancy test kit.
Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha can help in the overall endocrine and hormonal balance. Plus, the herb will help regulate the thyroid and adrenal gland function which in turn can help boost fertility .
Shatavari: One of the main constituents of Shatavari is steroidal saponins, which is known to be an estrogen regulator; the estrogen modulating, in turn, may contribute to menstrual cycle regulation and better ovulation .
Milk thistle is high in antioxidants, and also contains silymarin, which has been shown to possess hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and cardioprotective properties. This makes it a good food option for your liver. You can add milk thistle leaves to your salad or prepare a fresh herbal tea. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a hormone-specific cancer or taking prescription medications.
Motherwort: Stress affects fertility. It leads to late ovulation, inflammation of the tissues of the reproductive system that can lead to blocked fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids and much more. This herb improves the production of white blood cells that help to reduce the inflammation and eliminate the effects induced by stress .
Red clover: Red clover is rich in calcium and magnesium both of which can improve fertility. The herb also helps balance hormone levels and is known to repair scarring and damage done to the fallopian tubes .
