Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Beetroot (Beta vulgaris conditiva) is one type of dark red tuber that has a myriad of benefits. This fruit is known to contain various types of nutrients, including carbohydrates, protein, fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, magnesium, sodium, and iron. Beets are also rich in antioxidants and are low in fat and calories.
There is no specific prohibition for new mothers to consume beets. If you are breastfeeding, consumption of this fruit is known to be good for increasing milk production. Not only that, with its nutritional content, consumption of beets can also increase your endurance, increase stamina, improve heart work, and also improve digestion. Consumption of beets is also good for reducing the risk of hypertension, cancer, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, dementia, and also relieves inflammation.
Some breastfeeding mothers who consume beets while breastfeeding are often worried because their breast milk may turn slightly reddish in color. However, as long as there are no other complaints that accompany it, this condition is not dangerous and will improve without the need for special treatment after you no longer consume beets. So, as long as you don't have an allergy to beets, you don't need to worry about consuming them after having a cesarean section. Most importantly, you have washed the beets well before consumption. To consume beets, you can eat them right away, or turn them into juice. Don't forget, also balance the consumption of beets with fruit and other food sources so that the nutrients that your body gets remain balanced.
That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a doctor or a nutritionist.
I hope this helps.
