"I bought two fertility bracelets from you around April-May area. One for me, one for my best friend. After wearing them only one cycle, we both got pregnant! We're both entering into our second trimester soon, and I really just wanted to say thank you for such a marvelous product. I'm definitely keeping mine for when it's time to expand the family once again.
Thank you, Keshia"

Fertility and Avocado

When we were having fertility issues, I went to an acupuncturist. She told me to eat lots of avocado.... at first I wondered why, but I didn't mind at all, I LOVE avocado! I just saw this link from the Fertility Authority, interesting! I remember her telling me that they had all the good fats, and I loved having "permission" to eat such a decadent food. Now this was something I didn't mind doing.

Ode to the Avocado

A recent study has found that good fats — the monounsaturated kind such as those found in avocados — are good for fertility treatment, actually increasing the live birth rate for those undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). This is great news for those of us who love the green fruit! (And yes, it's a fruit, not a vegetable — in Brazil, they add avocados to ice cream!)

The avocado is packed full of nutrients, including vitamin K, folate, potassium, vitamin E, lutein, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin B6. And each serving of avocado has 3 grams of monunsaturated fat, which helps to lower blood cholesterol if used in place of saturated fats.

Here's a healthy guacamole recipe from the California Avocado Commission:

4 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded and peeled
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tomato, finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped onion
⅛ tsp. ground cumin
3 drops hot pepper sauce

Coarsely mash avocado with lemon juice and garlic. Mix in other ingredients. Enjoy! (With baked tortilla chips, of course!)
