Through nutrition, it is possible to optimize the production of progesterone by the corpus luteum.
In general, foods that improve blood circulation are recommended, such as those rich in L-arginine and L-citrulline (watermelon, salmon, peas, green beans, chia seeds, sesame, nuts, etc.), those that stimulate the production of nitric oxide (beets, strawberries, carrots, spinach, chard, broccoli, etc.) and others that improve the health of the vascular wall (chocolate, garlic, onion, etc.).
It is also essential to maintain good levels of some micronutrients such as omega-3, zinc, vitamin B6 and antioxidants. To this end, it is recommended to include the following foods in the diet: sardines, salmon, mackerel, shellfish (rich in omega-3); whole grains, legumes, nuts and liver (rich in vitamin B6); pumpkin seeds, shellfish and white meats (rich in zinc); vegetables and fruits (rich in antioxidants).
