MAKE YOUR OWN FERTILITY TEA




MAKE YOUR OWN FERTILITY TEA: RECIPE


Drinking tea is a good way to add herbs to your diet. There are many fertility teas on the market, but why not blend your own? Here are some of the common ingredients in fertility tea:


Chasteberry (also called vitex)

Chasteberry is supposed to have a positive affect on your FSH by increasing LH (and thereby decreasing FSH). High FSH (over 10) is considered to be an indication of ovarian failure. Chasteberry can also help if a woman has high prolactin levels. High prolactin can have a negative affect on fertility.

Green Tea

There are differing opinions about whether or not green tea can either help or harm fertility. Green tea has polyphenols and hypoxanthine which may be responsible for more viable embryos and possibly a greater chance of fertilization. Although green tea has caffeine, it is found in lesser amounts than other caffeinated beverages. On the downside, tannic acids in green tea may have a negative affect on a developing embryo and constrict blood vessel formation.

Red Raspberry Leaf

Red Raspberry Leaf can promote fertility because it has a positive affect on uterine and pelvic muscle tone. Red Raspberry is also thought to lengthen your menstrual cycle by increasing the second half after ovulation. Because it helps with pelvic and uterine muscles, it is also beneficial in preparation of labor.

Red Clover

Red Clover Tea may help clear out fallopian tubes, and may help regulate your cycles. It has phytoestrogens and can help with your body's pH which can make cervical mucus more sperm friendly.

Nettle Leaf

This tea is thought to strengthen the adrenal glands, uterus and hormones. It has chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals. It can help rid the body of toxins and it is thought to be especially good in women over 40.

Ladies Mantle

Ladies Mantle is thought to help tone the cervix and can also help regulate the menstrual cycle.

When you are ready to brew your tea, you can do it a couple of ways:




1. If you are using tea bags (pre-packaged tea), you can get a large tea brewing container and add all the teabags and brew together. If the teas have different brewing times on the package, use the one with the shortest brewing time. Once the tea is brewed, store it in the refrigerator and heat one cup at a time (or you can drink it iced). If it is too concentrated, you can dilute it down a bit with water.

2. If you are using loose tea, combine equal parts of the loose teas together in a bowl (then store in a glass container. When you are ready to have a cup of tea, get a tea ball and use about 1-2 teaspoons of the mixture per cup (6-8 oz). Use fresh water in a teapot (if you are concerned about your water quality, use bottled spring water) and boil to about 170-180 degrees. Close the tea ball and place in the cup and put your heated water in the cup with the tea ball. If you would like to make a pitcher of tea, you can use a “tea sock” which will hold much more tea. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator after it is brewed to have later. It is usually recommended to drink within 72 hours for maximum freshness.
