Moringa Leaf Consumption During Young Pregnancy, Is It Dangerous?
Hello I heard there are two options about moringa leaves which are consumed by pregnant women. One allows it because it is rich in benefits, the other does not allow it if consumed improperly because it causes miscarriage in pregnancy. Which is correct doctor? And how are the rules consuming it? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Moringa leaf or also called Moringa oleifera is known to have high nutrition and has many health benefits. However, it should be noted that studies that show the health benefits of Moringa leaves are small studies (studies with small samples or studies that have not been done in humans), therefore it has never been recommended to be consumed to treat diseases or conditions. certain health conditions.
Moringa leaf itself is also not recommended for consumption by women who are pregnant because as you said, its use can cause abnormal contractions in the uterus. Although there is no major research yet that supports this, you are still not advised to consume Moringa leaves during your pregnancy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
