A Good Supplement For Breastfeeding Mothers?
Can you eat wheatgrass? Is there a negative impact for baby? thank you
Hello Yosshe, Thank you for the question.
Pregnant and nursing mothers should pay attention to the food and drinks as well as the supplements or medicines they consume because what is consumed by pregnant or breastfeeding mothers can affect the milk content and ultimately, your baby.
Wheatgrass is a grass plant classified as wheat derivatives, which are sold in the form of supplements in the form of tablets, capsules, powder, or liquid. Wheatgrass contains several nutrients including iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. Wheatgrass is believed to have a number of health benefits such as improving the immune system, helping to overcome infections in the digestive tract, overcome anemia, joint pain , diabetes and others. However, medical research on the benefits of wheatgrass is still limited so the health benefits of the product are not yet known with certainty.
Because wheatgrass is planted in the soil and is widely consumed raw, wheatgrass can be contaminated by bacteria or fungi. Therefore, this product should not be consumed by pregnant or nursing women.
Make sure you always consult a doctor before you consume certain foods, supplements, or medications.
Hope this helps.
