5 Best Healthy Fertility Smoothies For PCOS

Regular consumption of fertility smoothies for PCOS can go a long way towards improving your PCOS symptoms.

And this is true whether you are trying to get pregnant or not.

If you suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), you likely know that diet is the most important factor for improving symptoms, regulating your menstrual cycle, and helping you feel good again.

Since PCOS is linked to insulin resistance, it is important for women with PCOS to avoid all foods that contain sugar or that turn into sugar in the body, both of which disrupt blood sugar and exacerbate insulin resistance. This includes cereals, breads, bagels, desserts, pastas, candy, soda, crackers, tortillas-all white, processed, refined stuff. 

Many women struggle with keeping their sweet tooth in check, but for women with PCOS, it is important to be EXTRA diligent about keeping sugar out of your diet because your risk of developing diabetes type 2 is much higher. Smoothies can be a great way to feel like you are getting a treat but without all that excess refined sugar. Including a lot of fresh vegetables & fruits in your meals also improves your insulin response.

To make sure our smoothie is PCOS and fertility friendly, we choose low sugar fruit and balance our carbs, fats, and proteins.

With the right blend, and with daily consumption, smoothies can help you address all aspects of fertility.

Before making theses smoothies a part of your daily routine, let us take note a few things:

Consistency is the key. To make sure it is all creamy and delicious, add a healthy fat like half an avocado, BPA-free canned full-fat coconut milk or ¼ cup of almonds or cashews.

Balance proteins/fats/carbohydrates. Most smoothies are just sugar bombs-filled with heaps of fruit and milk. These smoothies keep the sugar content low so you are just spiking your sugar.

Use natural sweeteners to curb your sugar cravings. Small amounts of ingredients like fruit, raw honey, and maple syrup will satisfy your sweet tooth.

1.Keeps you regular

Toxin build-up from food, water, cosmetics and other external sources plays a huge role in PCOS symptoms. Once toxins are in the body, the only way to get rid of them safely is through regular bowel movement.

A minimum of 2 bowel movements a day is necessary.

If you are only having bowel movements every few days or less, then toxins end up recirculating into your bloodstream.

With the right fertility smoothie, you can keep yourself regular and get rid of toxins before they accumulate to unhealthy levels.

2.Provides Essential Nutrients

Whether it is boosting fertility, regulating hormones, detoxing or digesting food, everything in the body needs nutrients.

Nutrients are the raw material for everything that the body has to do. Manh times, fertility problems and other hormonal imbalance symptoms come from the fact the body is undernourished.

3.Improves Digestion

In order to absorb nutrients from foods, you need a healthy digestive system. Poor digestion tends to go hand-in-hand with hormonal imbalance like PCOS.

If your digestive system is sluggish, then you end up constipated. Constipation means toxins don’t leave your body fast enough, which contributes to infertility, acne, weight gain and other symptoms.

Do you know that your body is easier to absorb food in liquid form? That is the beauty of a smoothie.

4.Supports Your Liver

Before toxins get eliminated, they have to be filtered from your blood and processed. The liver does the heavy lifting. Fertility smoothies use ingredients like healthy fats, greens, fruits and herbs that support the liver so that it can work for you.

5.Lowers Inflammation

One of the 3 underlying causes of PCOS symptoms is inflammation. Inflammation occurs as a response to various types of stress, including:

  • Emotional stress
  • Chemical stress which comes from a diet and other environmental factors

Since fertility smoothies contain foods that are rich in antioxidants, they are great for lowering inflammation. And less inflammation means your cortisol levels go down. When cortisol goes down, this also improves insulin sensitivity, blood sugar levels, thyroid function and ovarian function.

6. Nourishes Your Gut

As mentioned above, fertility smoothies can lower inflammation. This is good news for the gut because inflammation contributes to leak gut syndrome and also disrupts your gut microbiome. Since the gut plays a role in hormone production and detoxification, that means gut health also affects fertility. Also, fertility smoothies contain fiber, which acts as “food” for your gut bacteria. The more fiber you have in your diet, the happier your gut bacteria will be.


Fertility smoothies are a great addition to any PCOS diet.
