1 Answer:

Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.


Lemongrass leaves are also known as lemongrass leaves or lemongrass. In cooking and drinks, lemongrass is usually used as a seasoning. In addition, this plant is also usually used as a scent in deodorant, soap, and cosmetics. Usually people use lemongrass for consumption by mouth, applied directly to the skin, or inhaled as aromatherapy in many different conditions. Unfortunately, in fact until now there is still very limited scientific studies that can support various uses of lemongrass for medical purposes.


Lemongrass is said to tend to be safe for consumption in reasonable food levels for most people. However, it was reported that consumption of lemongrass by mouth tends to be unsafe (likely unsafe) in pregnant women. Lemongrass has the potential to spur menstrual blood flow so it is feared that consumption of lemongrass in pregnancy can increase the risk of miscarriage. In addition, until now there has not been enough scientific information about the safe limit of the amount of lemongrass consumed. Due to the limited valid scientific evidence regarding the safety of consumption of lemongrass during pregnancy and lactation, it is recommended to avoid it during pregnancy and breastfeeding.


Do not hesitate to consult directly with a doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist who treats you regarding good eating arrangements during pregnancy. As a suggestion, you are advised to get enough rest, consume balanced nutritious food regularly, and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. To enrich insight, you can read articles about the safety of lemongrass consumption. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
