Hi maharani80,

During pregnancy, a mother should be more careful about what is consumed, because what is consumed has an effect on the fetus. Turmeric acid is known in the community to have many health benefits, such as reducing symptoms of ulcers and stomach ulcers and reducing pain during menstruation. Turmeric tamarind when consumed in cooking spices is still within the limits for consumption by pregnant women, but when consumed in the form of herbal medicine, of course the concentration/amount is higher, its safety for pregnant women has not been known and proven with certainty. Some research sources have found that consuming turmeric in certain amounts can cause uterine contractions, which can trigger miscarriage or premature birth, although this still needs further research. In addition, the herbs consumed may contain ingredients other than tamarind which are of unknown type and their side effects on the health of the mother and fetus, therefore it is better to avoid them to prevent unwanted effects on pregnancy. Continue to consume turmeric properly (not to exceed 500 mg per day) and further increase the number of safer and proven foods such as fruits and vegetables, consume only medicines prescribed by the attending physician, and have regular pregnancy control.
