The Safety Of Consuming Apple Cider Vinegar When Planning A Pregnancy?
, I am planning a pregnancy, currently I regularly consume apple vinegar to drink … is it safe to continue to consume apple cider vinegar while pregnant?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Apple cider vinegar is made from fermented apple juice. This vinegar is often considered to have various health benefits, including maintaining weight, preventing diabetes, controlling blood pressure, controlling cholesterol levels, maintaining healthy skin, reducing the risk of cancer, heart disease, and so on. However, you need to know that actually these benefits still need to be further proven through valid research.
Consumption of apple cider vinegar, especially when you are undergoing a pregnancy program, you should not overdo it. Excessive consumption of apple cider vinegar is known to have various side effects, including:
Inhibits gastric emptying, causing bloating, burning in the throat, nausea, and vomiting
Trigger indigestion, including decreased appetite
Lowering potassium levels in the blood
Accelerate bone loss
Causes tooth enamel erosion
Causes sore throat
Causes skin irritation (when applied directly to the skin), and so on
It is not yet known exactly whether there are any side effects that might be caused by consuming apple cider vinegar on fertility or disturbances in the fetus. Therefore, given the many possible side effects that can be caused, you should only consume apple cider vinegar appropriately. Better yet, if you first check with a doctor or obstetrician so that it can be evaluated, it is safe or not for you to consume apple cider vinegar.
Hope it helps ..
