WORTH A SHOT

Book­end your day with healthy habits that can put the odds of con­ceiv­ing a child in your favour

7AM: SKIP­PING

Obe­sity is as­so­ci­ated with in­fer­til­ity. If you want to lose weight quickly, skip­ping is the car­dio op­tion with the most im­pres­sive calo­rie burn.

7.45AM: SALMON

Re­fuel ev­ery day with foods rich in vi­ta­min D, such as oily fish, and you can in­crease your testos­terone lev­els, a good in­di­ca­tor of fer­til­ity, by around 25%*.

8PM: ASHWAGANDHA

Ac­cord­ing to an In­dian study, this un­caf­feinated hip­ster drink can in­crease sperm counts by 167%, se­men volume by 53% and sperm motil­ity by 57%.

10PM: BED­TIME

Forgo the evening news for an early night. Chi­nese re­searchers linked sleep de­fi­ciency and late bed­times to poor se­men qual­ity, and there­fore a lower chance of con­cep­tion.
