We frequently recommend various vegetables and juices for fertility and we often incorporate carrots. There are many reasons for this, but in this study they showed that a vitamin A deficiency can prevent your eggs from maturing properly. Now if you plan on eating tons of carrots, keep in mind that carrots don’t directly supply much vitamin A, you have to be able to convert the b-carotene to vitamin A. If you directly take a vitamin A supplement, it’s easy to get poisoned in which case you end up damaging your reproduction among other things. So this is where we not only stress diet, but also improving absorption and metabolism and this is one of the places where acupuncture can be extremely useful.
