Can I Drink Lemon Tea While Pregnant?
There is no harm in drinking lemon tea during pregnancy, however it is recommended to drink in moderation since the sugar content might be high for some. Too much sugar will put you to the risk of excessive weight gain. Lemon tea contains flavones and antioxidants, which are essential for leading a healthy life. But high levels of caffeine consumption is best avoided during pregnancy. Also, to be on the safe side, always read the labels on any tea that you are going to buy or consume. Some teas are made from herbs that may include berries, roots, flowers or seeds from a variety of plants, that may not always be safe during pregnancy. It is advisable to speak to your doctor to know which drink is safe to consume while pregnant. You may also make your very own lemon tea in the comfort of your home, ie: Brew decaffeinated black tea and add a squeeze of lemon juice. You may also add dome ginger to the tea, and it is great to calm morning sickness too.
Why not! But just be careful on how the sliced lemons are stored especially when u're buying from outside. It might be stored openly with a high chance of getting harmful bacteria on it
Drinking a small cup of tea a day in pregnancy is generally safe as the caffeine content is within limits. However, if you drink bottled lemon tea, these drinks are high in sugar and frequent consumption of sugary drinks during pregnancy can increase your risk of gestational diabetes.
Yes, can take lemon tea while pregnant. But try not to take when it's too cold. Moderation is key =)
Yes, I agree that there is no scientific proofs that lemon tea is not suitable for pregnant mummies. However, ensure that it is not too sweet or cold as from the TCM point of view, cold drinks affects the womb and may result in cramps. Hope this helps. :)
