Millet: A Fertility Wonder Grain?

Never heard of millet? See if you can find it in your grocery store. You may not be familiar with it, but fertility educator Julia Indichova has dubbed it the “fertility wonder grain.” Millet is a whole grain, and it’s wheat- and gluten-free. It helps balance blood sugar and insulin levels, thus keeping your hormones in balance. You can buy millet in cracked or pearled forms, as well as in flour. However, if you have thyroid problems, alternate millet with other grains; millet contains a compound that interferes with the production of thyroid hormones.
