    Hi girls, I thought this may be of interest to some of you:

    Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant and has been shown to increase fertility when given to both men and women. Men going for IVF treatment with their partners have been given vitamin E, and fertilisation rates have, as a result, increased from 19 to 29 percent. It has been suggested that the antioxidant activity of vitamin E might make the sperm more fertile.

    Top 10 Foods Highest in Vitamin E:

    1. Sunflower Seeds
    2. Paprika & red chilli powder
    3. Almonds
    4. Pine Nuts
    5. Peanuts
    6. Dried herbs (basil & oregano)
    7. Dried apricots
    8. Pickled green olives
    9. Cooked spinach
    10. Cooked taro root
