3 Benefits of Flaxseed for Women’s Fertility
If you’re not already using flaxseeds, my hope is that you will soon after reading this blog.
Flaxseeds are tiny little oil filled seeds with a nutty flavor and a bit of a crunch. They are brown tiny seeds that produce purple flowers and have been used since forever.
In this blog I’m going to share three dietary and nutritional benefits of flaxseed for fertility for women. But first I want to give you a quick back story about flaxseeds and how I’ve been using it lately as a fertility food.
Wearing natural fibers made of organic flax, can be beneficial for fertility if you’re trying to conceive and want to avoid pesticides and chemicals often sprayed on other fibers like cotton.
So if you’re wanting a more natural fiber to avoid synthetic materials from clothing rubbing into your pores, flax linens and garments should be on your shopping list.
How I Am Using Flaxseed for Fertility
As you can tell, you can get really creative with how you use flaxseed. If nutty, crunchy goodness isn’t your thing, don’t let this stop you from improving your fertility naturally with flax.
Types of Flaxseeds
Normally I use whole, dark brown flax because that is what I’m used to. But I got the ground flax meal this time. I am still very sceptical about the lighter brown version because I’ve only started noticing a few years ago. I also prefer the whole flax since it lasts longer, so I get the most nutritional benefits.

Some other Benefits of flaxseed

Flaxseed is also used to help women regulate their cycle and promote ovulation through a process called seed cycling.
However, avoid the oil itself after conception. “flaxseed oil” (the liquid sold in bottles) has been linked to miscarriages.
