WHY ARE FLAXSEEDS SO GOOD FOR FERTILITY, GETTING PREGNANT?

When I was trying to conceive, I immediately added ground flaxseeds (or "flax meal") to my diet.  I had read an article written by a dietician who gave all of the benefits of flaxseeds - not only for fertility but for overall health.  I actually just ground them myself in a coffee bean grinder (an old wedding gift I finally found a use for!)  I would just take a couple of tablespoons every day.  Some people add them to their food, but it was just easier for me to take them right from the spoon and wash them down with water.  They actually have a nice nutty taste, so they're great to throw in a salad.  But I would definitely grind them up because they can be hard to digest and they may go through your system whole and you won't get the benefit of the essential fatty acids.  Also, keep them refrigerated.  Be sure to buy them fresh and refrigerated as well because the oils inside can easily spoil.  Here is an article about the benefit of flaxseeds for reproductive hormones:

1) Lignans

Flaxseeds contain a series of chemicals called lignans, which have a phytoestrogenic effect. Phytoestrogens, or “plant-estrogens” are very weak hormone analogues that talk to the body’s hormone receptors and modulate their actions. In other words, it can help lower the estrogenic effect when you have too much or raise it when you have too little.

2) Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

Our bodies produce a protein in our blood called Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, or SHBG. SHBG has an affinity for testosterone and estrogen – two hormones which are commonly elevated in women with hormone conditions such as PCOS or painful periods. When SHBG binds a hormone, it renders the hormone inactive, but hormone imbalance often lowers SHBG levels. A study showed the flaxseed consumption raised SHBG when it needed to be increased, and minimized the detrimental effects of excess estrogen and testosterone.

3) Regularity

The primary route of excretion of excess hormones is through the bowels. Being regular is essential to hormonal health – you need to go to the washroom at least once per day. Flaxseed is a source of fibre that gels up in the digestive tract and helps to move things along the intestines. Not only does this make flax a great option for hormones, but it also helps rid the body of excess cholesterol as well.
