Nourishing Your Womb: Vital Vitamins for Every Woman

I wish to take a moment to discuss the care of our cherished wombs. Each Monday, I delve into the study of herbal medicines and holistic care. Today, I encountered an intriguing article that highlighted the significance of vitamins. The key takeaway was the vital role of certain vitamins in maintaining the health and vitality of our sacred spaces. Whether you’re nurturing dreams of future motherhood or simply aiming to honor and nourish your body, these essential nutrients play a crucial role.


Vitamin E

  • Lengthens luteal phase

  • Balances hormones

  • Promotes cellular growth

You can load up on vitamin E with hearty helpings of almonds, sunflower seeds, and leafy greens.


Vitamin B6

  • Regulates hormones

  • Promotes a regular menstrual cycle

  • Improves egg quality

Sweet potatoes, avocados, and bananas are all awesome sources of B6. Plus, they're delicious and versatile. Work them into your meals to reap the benefits.


Vitamin C

  • Protects against free radicals

  • Increases blood flow to the uterus

Citrus fruits, berries, bell peppers and kiwis are all packed with vitamin C. Bonus: they're refreshing and energizing too.


Vitamin D

  • Regulates hormones and menstrual cycle

While sunlight is always my first choice of Vitamin D, you can also find vitamin D in mushrooms, fortified plant milks, and certain supplements. Click HERE to see my favorite D3 supplement.



Omega-3s

  • Improves egg health

  • Reduces inflammation

Seeds like flax, chia and hemp are rich plant-based sources. You can sprinkle them on oatmeal, blend them into smoothies, or even make a chia pudding parfait.


Vitamin B9 (Folate)

  • Supports healthy eggs

  • Crucial for fetal development

You can find it in abundance in dark leafy greens like spinach, kale and collard greens. Legumes like lentils and beans are also great plant-based sources.


Vitamin B12

  • Promotes ovulation

Organic Chlorella is always my first choice, also fortified cereals**, and plant milks can help you get B12 on a vegan diet. You may also want to consider a supplement to ensure you're meeting your needs.


The bottom line is, eating a colorful array of whole plant foods gives your body the tools it needs to keep your womb healthy and happy. This earth provides everything we need - we just have to tap into the wisdom. Focus on fresh fruits, veggies, legumes, nuts and seeds as the pillars of your nourishing diet. This holistic approach will support your reproductive health physically and spiritually. Wishing you abundant blessings and a healthy, thriving womb.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
