Hello Aisha, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Angkak is white rice that has been fermented by the fungus Monascus purpureus. As a result of the fermentation will turn brownish red. Lots of ingredients in red yeast rice, one of which is lovastatin which is good for the heart. Although good for lovastatin heart is not recommended for pregnant women because it can harm the condition of the fetus. In fact, according to the FDA, drugs that contain lovastatin itself are included in category X, which means contract indications in pregnancy (may not be used). Therefore it is recommended if you want to consume honey, then use honey without other ingredients (pure honey) with an amount that is not excessive. It is better to consult with a gynecologist about what you want to consume to avoid the emergence of danger.
