Want to Get Pregnant? Soybean meal

Many sites recommend the types of foods to help women get pregnant fast. But generally not supported by scientific evidence. Health scientists from Harvard found one type of food that can increase the chances of pregnancy, namely soybean.

The study, published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism explore the 239 women who were undergoing pregnancy program. Researchers then compared the levels of Bisphenol A (BPA) in their urine and how much soy is consumed.

"We found that women undergoing pregnancy with the consumption of soy are less likely to 50 percent less likely to become pregnant than those who often eat soy," says Professor at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, Jorge E Chavarro, reported from Fit Pregnancy Thursday (18/2).

These findings suggest that soy reduces the negative effects of BPA. BPA levels were higher in women affects fertility by interfering with the endocrine system. BPA also mimic estrogen which can disrupt hormone function.

Although the mechanism is not yet known details, soybeans could somehow block the effects of BPA in the body. In other studies using samples of rodents, namely rats, researchers found that soy may offset exposure to BPA in the bodies of mice.

Literature that said eating soy can harm fertility, according to Chavarro is wrong. Most of the scientific evidence, including randomized clinical trials would indicate otherwise. Women are more likely to get pregnant while diligently eating soy.

The exact number of recommended servings of soy researchers still confusing. But Chavarro study menyontohkan same portion with a plate out for one meal. The servings are consumed two to three times a week.

Women who want to become pregnant were asked to reduce exposure to BPA. In addition to soy meal, the other way is not to consume canned foods and frozen foods, reduce the use of polycarbonate plastic to wrap food and replace it with a food box made of glass or metal.
