Fact or Fiction? Green Tea Improves Fertility

Not proven.

While green tea is purported to have many wonderful health benefits, the study that much of this info comes from was actually evaluating the effect of caffeine on rates of conception. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that drinking one half-cup or more caffeinated tea per day approximately doubled the odds of conception per cycle. There was no correlation between decaffeinated or herbal tea and improved fertility.

This study wasn’t designed to see if adding tea to your daily diet can improve fertility, so although they corrected for the effects of weight, alcohol and cigarettes, it is entirely possible that tea drinkers have other lifestyle factors that improve their odds of conception.
