Article Name: Mediterranean Diet Foods Such as Avocados Can Boost Success of Fertility Treatments
In this article, Harvard scientists review the findings of one of the latest IVF studies. This study showed a correlation between improved success with fertility treatments and the consumption of avocados and sunflower oil (foods with low saturated fat levels). By contrast, women who ate an abundance of saturated fat experienced lower levels of success with fertility treatments and produced less good eggs.
One of the lead researchers from the study, Dr. Jorge Chavarro, states that while this research correlates lower saturated fats and better success rates with IVF treatments, more studies need to be compiled in order to make this data applicable to clinics. More research needs to be conducted to further investigate the relationship between unsaturated fat and its connection to more success with fertility treatments.
