What are Fertility Teas?
Fertility teas are herbal teas that contain specific ingredients and properties that are believed to increase fertility, support reproductive health and improve your chances of starting your dream family. These teas are usually made with natural, organic ingredients that have been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat fertility issues. Though the ingredients in fertility teas may vary, but some of the most common ones include raspberry leaf tea, nettle tea, red clover tea, green tea, and maca root tea.
How to Use Fertility Tea
Fertility teas are usually consumed daily, and the exact instructions for use will depend on the specific tea and the manufacturer's recommendations. However, most fertility teas are brewed as a hot tea and consumed two to three times per day. Some teas may also be consumed cold or in the form of a supplement.
