Can Pregnant Women Consume Antioxidants?
Good morning … I want to ask if the drug ASATIN is good for pregnant women. Because I am 7 months pregnant .rims
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The drug you mentioned contains the active composition of astaxanthin, which is one of the carotenoids. Carotenoids themselves are natural dyes that produce red or pink colors in plants and some types of animals. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that functions well to maintain healthy eyes, heart, blood vessels, and skin. Astaxanthin consumption is also known to increase endurance, minimize inflammation, prevent premature aging, and minimize the formation of cancer cells.
Need to be clarified beforehand, for what reasons do you consume astaxanthin? Has the consumption been consulted first to the doctor?
Until now, it is unknown the potential dangers of astaxanthin consumption in pregnant and nursing women. However, some literature does not suggest consumption of astaxanthin in pregnant women or those undergoing pregnancy programs to avoid the potential harmful effects that may be caused.
Therefore, if you are not a doctor who recommends you consume these drugs, you should not be in a hurry to consume them. Consult your drug safety first with your obstetrician or doctor.
I hope this helps.
