Notes

More about the ingredients:
Water Kefir
Water kefir is a probiotic, dairy-free, vegan alternative to milk kefir which is loaded with gut-friendly bacteria. 
Strawberries
Not only are they delicious and full of nutrients such as folate and vitamin C, research has shown a link between regularly eating strawberries and lower levels of C-reactive protein (CRP).
CRP is a blood biomarker that signals the presence of inflammation in the body and and CRP is highly associated with diminished IVF outcomes (pregnancy and live births) which is one reason why fertility nutritionists suggest an anti-inflammatory diet when preparing for IVF.
Elevated CRP is also likelihood to cardiovascular disease and arthritis flares so getting lots of yummy anti-inflammatory foods into the diet makes sense for everyone, not just us looking to boost fertility. 
Lavender
It was only recently that I discovered lavender can be eaten, and now I can’t get enough of it! A word of caution though, like its smell, it has a strong flavour so use sparingly.
As well as its well-known relaxing effects, lavender contains a whole host of health boosting properties, with vitamin A promoting eye health, calcium for maintaining strong bones, iron to help prevent anaemia as well as being antiseptic, anti-fungal, anti-inflamatory and a digestive aid. Who knew!
