Omega-3 can protect women against infertility


A recent study has revealed that consuming foods rich in Omega-3 oil keeps infertility at bay. According to, women who take Omega-3 oils on routinely basis are at a lesser risk of developing endometriosis as compared to those who take a diet rich in these fats. The study conducted by a group of American researchers has also revealed that it’s the type of fats that are important to fight against diseases and not the amount of fats. Endometriosis is a condition which can further result in infertility.

Speaking about the research Dr Stacey Missmer, the lead researcher said, “Millions of women worldwide suffer from endometriosis. Many women have been searching for something they can actually do for themselves, or their daughters, to reduce the risk of developing the disease, and these findings suggest that dietary changes may be something they can do. The results need to be confirmed by further research, but this study gives us a strong indication that we’re on the right track in identifying food rich in Omega-3 oils as protective for endometriosis and trans fats as detrimental.”


As per, Omega-3 fatty acids are most commonly found in oily fish. The researchers are now contemplating the fact that whether these Omega-3 oils can help ease the problem of the women who are already prone to endometriosis.

Many celebrities have had reproductive assistance. Celebrities who have benefited from IVF include actresses Marcia CrossCourtney Cox-Arquette, Helena Bonham-Carter and Halle Berry.
