Refreshing Relief - Berry Pomegranate Smoothie

Ovulation happens in the third phase of your cycle. The eggs are released from the ovaries and travel down the fallopian tubes to the uterus during ovulation. If you don't get pregnant, the eggs will disintegrate in the next 6 to 24 hours. Antioxidants are important to keep the cells in your body, including your eggs, healthy during this phase of your cycle. Antioxidants and other key vitamins abound in berries like raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, as well as fruits like pomegranate. Flax seeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for controlling ovulation and alleviating cramps and breast soreness that can occur during this, and the luteal phase.
