Green Tea Pregnancy

Green Tea and Pregnancy -

Pregnant women would be wise to limit the amount of green tea they drink during pregnancy, and should be careful about taking any green tea supplements.

Green tea can block various chemicals and enzymes in your body that are extremely important for the proper nervous system development of your baby.

The EGCG molecules are structurally similar to a compound called methotrexate.

Methotrexate is able to kill cancer cells by chemically bonding with an enzyme in the body called enzyme dihydrofolate reductase.

It also makes it difficult for the body to absorb iron from the food and this is one another reason as iron is another important nutrient required during pregnancy.

The tea is also a low caffeine beverage and is recommended over coffee which is analyzed to have five times more caffeine over green tea.
