Hello. UK 24mg, can you eat lamtoro, what are the advantages and side effects. Does eating lamtoro can cause smelly amniotic fluid during childbirth like eating petai / jengkol. Thank you
Lamtoro leaf or commonly referred to as Chinese petai is a plant that is thought to have vitamins such as vitamins A, B, C. In addition, lamtoro leaves are also believed to have antioxidant properties. But this effect has not been scientifically proven, so the safety of consuming lamtoro leaves during pregnancy is not recommended.
Likewise, consumption of petai and jengkol is not recommended during pregnancy, because it has the potential to cause digestive disorders and can cause poisoning, especially jengkol. So it is not recommended to consume jengkol, petai, or lamotoro leaves.
