Hi Rian,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Temulawak (Curcuma xanthorrhiza) is one of the biological wealth in Indonesia which has a myriad of benefits, including:

Overcoming dyspepsia syndrome (increased stomach acid)
Increase appetite
Relieves inflammation
Has strong antioxidant properties
Optimizing brain work, reducing the potential for brain damage, for example from depression or Alzheimer's disease
Reduce the risk of heart disease
Prevents the growth of cancer cells
Improve arthritis symptoms (arthritis)
Inhibit premature aging, and so on

In fact, there are no adequate clinical trials regarding the benefits and side effects of consuming ginger during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Some experts suspect that the content of curcumin in temulawak has a positive impact on breast milk production. However, some other experts still doubt the truth of this hypothesis. Therefore, we are not authorized to recommend its consumption in excess. In addition, we do not know what compositions are contained in the temulawak product you mention, including what substances are added to it.


Therefore, it will be much safer if your wife consumes ginger which is processed naturally compared to instant forms such as capsules. In addition, avoid excessive consumption of temulawak during pregnancy and lactation, unless you have checked your wife's health condition to the doctor.


Hope it helps ya..
