Why Drink Herbal Tea For Fertility?
While many people enjoy a cup of coffee, recent research has shown that herbal tea is better for fertility because caffeine can negatively impact reproductive health. A Kaiser Permanente study found that ingesting the equivalent of two cups of caffeine boosts your chance of miscarriage.
An important cornerstone of building your fertility is replenishing your baseline energies. One of the most important things you can do is hydrate with plenty of room temperature water and herbal teas.
Switching From Coffee
The habit of drinking coffee can feel difficult to give up and some find it helpful to begin by transitioning to black tea and then herbal tea for increasing fertility. While green tea has many antioxidant benefits, it is also known to deplete folic acid stores so is best avoided for fertility and pregnancy.
Removing caffeine from your diet can give you a more realistic picture of your energy levels. You may realize that while caffeine offers a temporary energy lift, it is ultimately dehydrating and drains your energy stores.
