Gut Health and Fertility

Ever heard of Root Cause Analysis? It means using a collective approach, tools and techniques to find the true causes of problem. Many infertile couples go through failed IVF, Embryo implantation failure, Low AMH, PCOD, Endometriosis and weight issues but do you know why are you facing these problems? Have you ever done your root cause analysis? Not many people know that, gut health plays a crucial role in boosting your fertility health.


Did you know the fact that, unless you have a good Gut health you might not get pregnant?

–  Yes, you heard it right!


Gut health is very important for couples trying to conceive because a poor gut health causes hormonal imbalance. And, hormonal imbalance is one of the leading causes of infertility in both men and women. Gut not only affects your digestive function and nutrient absorption but is also responsible for influencing mood, inflammation, skin health, weight management, immunity and obviously fertility health in both male and female.


What Is Gut?

  • The gut (gastrointestinal tract) is the long tube that starts at the mouth, then esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and ends at the back passage (anus). Food taken in through the mouth is digested to extract nutrients, absorb energy and remaining solid wastes are expelled.
  • Gut microbes is all the bacteria that live inside your digestive system, specifically the large intestine. Surprisingly, there are more bacteria cells in your body than your own cells.
  • Gut microbes secrete the enzyme -glucuronidase, which activates estrogen so that it can do its function properly. The bacteria have a direct control over the flow of estrogen.


Healthy Gut Health VS Poor Gut Health






Along with estrogen (major female hormone), poor gut health also affects androgen (a male sex hormone). Androgen production is partly controlled by Clostridium scindens – a gut bacterium known to convert cortisol into androgens. So, if you have too much of this bacterium you will have an excess of androgens.

How does the Gut functions?

Walnuts, beetroot, berries and lean protein are superfoods for fertility. But, if you do not consume, digest and assimilate these foods effectively then gut health cannot help boost your fertility.


This process of consumption, digestion, assimilation and elimination is referred as gut function.


How To Keep Our Gut Healthy?

Only a healthy gut with proper functionality can improve your fertility health. In order to achieve this, you need to follow the simple do’s and don’ts of healthy lifestyle.


  • Consume food that contain probiotics (fermented food) and prebiotics (Plant fibers)
  • Follow Fertility diet
  • Reduce stress
  • Get enough sleep
  • Exercise Daily



  • Avoid alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Packed food
  • Fried food
  • Carbonated beverages
  • Excessive sweet.

Always Remember

  • Nutrition is bio-individual – Something which is suiting you may not suit the other person. It is not what we eat, it is what we absorb.
  • Eating organic foods or fertility rich foods is not sufficient, we need to create that suitable environment inside of our body which can give us the maximum absorption without causing after effects like flatulence, bloating or acid reflux.
  • Timing of the meals and eating according to body type and environment is crucial for gut health.
