A List of Herbs Not Safe During Pregnancy

A List of Herbs Not Safe During Pregnancy
Pregnant women should think twice before downing that cup of herbal tea. While some herbs are harmless in small doses, there are several that could cause complications during pregnancy, including inciting preterm labor. Herbs that are used for tea, seasonings or as medicine can be harmful to your unborn baby, states the March of Dimes on its website. Know which herbs are not safe during pregnancy so you will avoid making a dangerous mistake.

Herbal Supplement Risks
Pregnancy and herbs may not mix.
Herbs are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; therefore, the quantity, quality and composition of herbal supplements are questionable. The claims of a particular herb’s effectiveness on its packaging could be false or misleading. Some herbs can cause complications in pregnancy, including early uterine contractions that could lead to premature birth and even miscarriage, warns the American Pregnancy Association on its website. Always consult with your obstetrician, or midwife, and a professionally trained herbalist before ingesting herbal supplements while pregnant.
Avoid Herbal Stimulants
Avoid Dong Quai.
Some herbs can act as stimulants and should not be taken by pregnant women, according to the American Pregnancy website. Herbs to avoid include yohimbe, ephedra, kava kava, angelica, blue and black cohosh, borage oil, dong quai, mugwort and pennyroyal.

Herbs that Could Harm the Fetus
Ginger.
There are additional herbs that are considered dangerous and may cause miscarriage or other complications and should not be taken by pregnant women. These include black walnut, cascara sagrada, comfrey, echinacia, fenugreek, large amounts of ginger, goldenseal, henbane, horsetail, licorice root, large amounts of nutmeg, motherwort, pau d’arco, saw palmetto, senna, shepherd’s purse, St. John’s wort, tansy, uva ursi, wormwood and yohimbe.

Questionable Popular Herbs
Be cautious about chamomile tea.
Some herbs and teas may be recommended by herbalists but have a rating of possibly unsafe or unknown on the Natural Medicines Database, according to the American Pregnancy website. You should check with your doctor before drinking too much chamomile, nettles or dandelion tea. Other herbs that are possibly unsafe to ingest or use are aloe, evening primrose and ginseng.

Tea Vs. Supplements
Herbal tea.
Certain herbal teas that you get in the grocery store may be safe to drink in limited amounts, while the same herbs in supplemental form are not safe, says Dr. Michael Lu, a University of California, Los Angeles, professor of obstetrics, gynecology and public health and author of „Get Ready to Get Pregnant: Your Complete Pre-Pregnancy Guide to Making a Smart and Healthy Baby.“ Lu also suggests steering clear of homemade herbal teas, which may be too concentrated for pregnant women.

Ways To Include Ginger In Pregnancy

Ginger is a ‘super food’. People have been using ginger as a culinary and therapeutic agent for centuries. It adds zesty flavor to food and also comes with health benefits. The Western society uses the herb for pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting. But before you consume ginger during pregnancy, you need to know about its safe dosage, and consequences of over-consumption. Also, as ginger is not something you would relish eating, find out ways to consume it. MomJunction helps you understand all these and more.

 

Is It Safe To Eat Ginger During Pregnancy? Yes, it is safe to take fresh ginger in your food during pregnancy. However, dried root may not be good. Ginger is beneficial as long as you take it in healthy amounts, by adding it to a recipe or ginger tea. Do not take any ginger supplements unless you get your doctor’s opinion, as the higher concentrations may raise the risk of miscarriage.

 

How Much Ginger Is Safe During Pregnancy? You can take about one gram of ginger root per day in two to four divided doses. You can include fresh ginger or candied forms for pregnancy-related nausea and morning sickness (1). You need to be especially careful in the first trimester.

During the first trimester, you are likely to suffer from nausea, vomiting, malaise and mood changes. So, the best time to drink ginger tea is when you feel nauseated; it alleviates your discomfort and is refreshing. But, do not over-consume just because it is working for you.

 

13 Benefits Of Eating Ginger During Pregnancy: You may be sipping a hot cup of ginger tea or adding ginger in your food for its flavor. So, you will be pleasantly surprised to know that it benefits you in various ways.

1 Your baby gets enough blood supply: Ginger boosts blood circulation in your body and therefore promotes adequate blood supply to your unborn baby.

2 Regulates your cholesterol level: Ginger controls cholesterol level, thus reducing the risk of high cholesterol levels during pregnancy.

3 Brings some relief from morning sickness: If you are suffering from morning sickness and nausea, you can expect relief by taking ginger as it is a soothing agent. Have homemade ginger ale or ginger tea to calm down those tummy issues.

4 Keep away from a cold and cough: Ginger is effective in treating a common cold, minor ailments and persistent cough. Your immune system gets sluggish when you are pregnant, making you vulnerable to these minor ailments. Ginger has an exceptional ability to boost immunity and helps you recover quickly. It also helps you prevent these diseases (2).

5 Blood sugar levels are under control: Research studies state that ginger plays a vital role in keeping the blood glucose levels in check. It thereby keeps the mother and growing baby healthy. It also aids in maintaining your energy levels high and treats exhaustion and fatigue (3).

6 Your body can take in more nutrients: Various reasons, such as infection or poor diet habits, may hamper your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Ginger supports your body in absorbing the nutrients and supplying them to your unborn baby

7 No heartburn for you: Ginger is an excellent remedy to treat heartburn associated with pregnancy. It fights off the acids, which cause heartburn. You can consume ginger tea made with a fresh slice of ginger and sugar or honey, sip in between your meals. Homemade ginger ale also works.

8 Escape from bloating: During pregnancy, digestion slows down to allow the baby to absorb nutrients. This makes you feel heavy, leading to bloating and gas. Take ginger before bedtime to avoid any digestive issues and neutralize the problem of bloating. You can also take one teaspoon of fresh ginger juice and honey.

9 Treats inflammation: Ginger is anti-inflammatory in nature and thereby reduces inflammation and swelling during pregnancy. Dip a slice of ginger in honey and eat it for relief.

10 Pregnancy can be less painful: Any pain that you suffer during pregnancy, abdominal, lower back or joints, ginger helps to alleviate it. It works on the hormonal level, and you will have fewer pains and aches. You may start your day with ginger ale or ginger tea or you can add it to a smoothie.

11 Relaxes tired muscles: Pregnancy can take a toll on your bones and muscles. It causes fatigue and also wears out the muscles. A cup of ginger tea a day will relieve you from achy bones and muscles, which usually result from back pain, sciatica or sore feet (4).

12 Makes sex more interesting: It is natural for pregnant women to lack the desire for sex. Ginger improves your libido. It warms up the body, and improves the functioning of the circulatory system, particularly towards the genitals.

13 Makes your baby robust: Using fresh ginger in tea or recipes will improve the supply of vitamin C and iron. It, thereby, supports your unborn baby’s immune system and lowers the risk of congenital disabilities.

 

Are There Any Side Effects Of Ginger In Pregnancy? Consuming fresh ginger in recommended amounts will not cause any problems. However, you may have to take some care: Talk to your doctor if you can take ginger when you are on medication for blood pressure or blood clots. Avoid ginger if you have a history of any prior miscarriage, clotting disorder, vaginal bleeding, and dizziness. Women with gestational diabetes should also avoid ginger as it can affect blood sugar levels. Heavy doses of ginger can lead to miscarriage or menstrual bleeding, which may be dangerous for you and your unborn baby. Limit the amount of ginger intake, and use it the right way so as to get maximum benefits. But what could be the ‘right’ way?

 

Ways To Include Ginger In Pregnancy: Ginger is available in the form of candies, ale, capsules and chewable tablets. Keep them handy to face those annoying nausea strikes. If you are using ginger ale, read the ingredients list as some brands do not use ginger in it.

Drink ginger infusion. Mix one teaspoon ginger juice in one cup of hot water. Leave for five minutes and drink. Add minced ginger to over steamed vegetables or roasted potatoes. Mix shredded ginger in soups or stir-fries. Fresh ginger can give a twist to grilled fish such as trout or salmon. Make a soothing ginger tea by adding mint leaves or cinnamon to boiling water. As ginger has low sodium content, you can use in foods as a substitute for salt. To extend the shelf-life of ginger root, wrap it in a plastic bag and store in a freezer.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

1 Can ginger cause miscarriage in early pregnancy? Ginger is not likely to result in miscarriage as long as you do not exceed the recommended dosage and take your doctor’s suggestion.

2 Are ginger root capsules safe during pregnancy? You should not take ginger root capsules without your doctor’s prescription. Your healthcare provider may recommend a 1,000mg ginger capsule to decrease morning sickness (5). You should buy those capsules from a renowned brand.

 3 Are ginger chews safe during pregnancy? Yes. Ginger chews are made of real ginger root and contain all of its natural active compounds. They are soft, chewy and can also be used to make instant ginger tea. Eating half a candy can provide instant relief from nausea. Again, you should only buy them with your doctor’s prescription.

4 Are ginger snaps ok during pregnancy? If you long to have a cookie from time to time during pregnancy, ginger snaps are a good option. They are low in fat and sugar and offer an abundant dose of vitamins and minerals. They would suit you best in the early months of pregnancy to work against morning sickness.

You can eat ginger in multiple ways. Relish them as chewables or chop them finely and add to your curry or any other dish. They are easy to eat and divine for your body. But do not over-consume them as more ginger does not mean more benefits.
