5 things to add to your diet for uterine health
The Human body is generally good at maintaining itself. However, there are certain foods that help nourish and better equip our bodies, known as superfoods. Just like all of our other internal organs, our uterus also plays a very important role in our overall health. In this blog post, we have compiled a list of our top 5 picks for superfoods to add to your diet in order to improve your uterine health. Read on to find out more!
1. Berries and fresh fruits
Fresh fruits are rich in fibre and essential micronutrients such as Vitamin C and bioflavonoids which help in the prevention of uterine fibroids and ovarian cancer. Fresh berries in specific, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries are power-packed with antioxidants and supply the body with cancer-repelling nutrients known as anthocyanin which are believed to aid in cell repair.
2. Healthy fats
Don’t run at the sight of the word ‘fats’, because they are actually crucial to your overall health! Adding a healthy source of fats to your diet such as almonds, cashews, walnuts and seeds such as flax seeds, pumpkin seeds etc. greatly reduces the risk of developing fibroids and uterine cancer as they are a great source of good cholesterol and Omega-3 fatty acids. For an animal-based source of omega 3, try consuming more cold-water fish such as salmon and mackerel, or egg yolks, which contain Choline, a nutrient that protects your uterus and keeps it healthy.
3. Imbue Natural Rosa Period Potion
The Rosa Period Potion is a great way to add the goodness of ayurvedic herbs in your daily life. It contains ingredients such as Ashoka, Nagkeshar, Dashmool, Sukumaram Kashayam, Lodhra and Pradarantak Lauh which all have their own benefits such as maintaining uterine health and regularizing menstrual cycles, reducing excessive blood loss during periods, reducing bloating and discomfort during menses, enhancing immunity and reducing inflammation and body pain during menstrual cramps. The potion has a pleasant mixed-fruit flavour and should be taken twice every day for the best results.
4. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential in helping the body with the absorption of calcium. Unfortunately, due to our desk-tied jobs and indoorsy lifestyles, most of us lack naturally absorbed and synthesized Vitamin D from the sun. This retards calcium absorption as well, which is essential to prevent uterine tumours and ovarian tumours. Vitamin D can be synthesized by spending more time in natural sunlight, or consuming the vitamin in supplement form, or choosing foods that are fortified with Vitamin D, such as Vitamin D fortified milk or fruit juices.
5. Dairy products
Consumption of dairy products such as yoghurt, cheese, milk, butter and cream can help the body absorb more calcium, which in turn strengthens your bones and pelvic floor. Calcium can be absorbed both through the consumption of dairy products and also by consuming calcium supplements. But, eating the real deal has a lot more added benefits, such as the gut-healing, probiotic properties of yoghurt, which also helps in preventing uterine infections and decreasing any inflammatory disorders.
These are the best superfoods that can be included in your diets to improve not only your overall health but to strengthen and support your uterine health as well.
