I am Riri from South Jakarta, I was 5 months pregnant. I was around 1 o’clock. I drank yakult because I really like drinking yakult … but suddenly I want kiwi juice, finally I bought kiwi juice when I drank it my tongue was itchy. .. and about the effect on the fetus, not after drinking, then drinking kiwi juice ?? Then if it affects the baby, how?
Hello Mrs. Rini! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Yakult is a drink that contains probiotics. This drink is safe for consumption by pregnant women as long as the amount is not excessive. Probiotics can increase the number of good bacteria in the gut and reduce bad bacteria. Probiotics are also good for preventing constipation that often occurs in pregnant women. Make sure you follow the recommended amount of consumption listed on the packaging. Mothers can also consult with their obstetrician regarding consumption of these drinks during routine pregnancy control.
Kiwi is one of the best fruits for consumption by pregnant women because it contains folic acid which is good for fetal brain development. Kiwi fruit often makes people feel itchy and bitter on the tongue, especially if the skin is eaten. This is often harmless, but it could also be a sign of an allergic reaction to the fruit. If all this time you haven't experienced any special reactions when consuming kiwi, then the itching is most likely harmless. If the itching is accompanied by swelling of the lips or tongue, a feeling of tightness, or swelling in other parts of the body, you should immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
