Pregnancy should not eat health supplements! ?
During pregnancy, many people are curious about whether they need supplements or not. Food supplements seem to be better for BBs . In fact, the answer is not necessarily. According to the guidelines of the Department of Health, it is enough to have enough nutrition during pregnancy and maintain a balanced diet.
So what are the special nutritional needs during pregnancy! ?
The following food and information introductions are provided by the Department of Health (Healthy Eating During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding)
According to the Department of Health, the first thirteen weeks of pregnancy are more important for folic acid, iodine and vitamin A
In the mid-term, that is, the fourteenth to fortieth weeks, in addition to the above-mentioned nutrition, calories, protein, iron, zinc, Omega 3 fatty acids and calcium are all necessary.
So what are the benefits of these nutrients, and they can be absorbed side by side! ?
Folic acid helps prevent anemia and defects such as abnormal development of the brain or spine
You can mainly eat green vegetables, beans, fruits, liver and peanuts to supplement folic acid
Vitamin A helps vision development, in addition, it is an indispensable part of normal growth and the immune system, but at the same time, it should be noted that excessive vitamin A may also cause fetal defects.
Red and yellow fruits or deep yellow vegetables are the main sources of vitamin A , such as cherry tomatoes, carrots, pumpkins or sweet potatoes, etc. At the same time, appropriate amount of eggs and milk can help meet the needs of the body and BB .
Iodine is an essential mineral to maintain the metabolism and thyroid function of the human body, and it is also an essential element for the development of the baby's brain. But you must pay attention to the amount of intake, otherwise it will affect your thyroid gland (commonly known as big neck bubble).
Sea fish, sea prawns, oysters, eggs, milk and seaweed are the main sources of iodine, especially seaweed is rich in iodine. The recommended recipe is steamed sea prawns. Simply steam for 10-20 minutes after the shrimp intestines are removed, which is convenient for cooking.
Iron is one of the essential elements, which helps to protect the growth of the fetus and the development of the brain, and also prevents the mother from reducing the chance of anemia.
General meats contain iron, such as fish, poultry, seafood, red meat, etc., and dark green vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, mustard greens, cabbage, spinach and broccoli all contain iron. The recommended recipe is stir-fried choy sum with beef, seasoned with a small amount of oyster sauce, which is nutritious and delicious.
Vitamin C helps strengthen the immune system and also helps absorb iron from food
Generally, fresh vegetables or fruits contain vitamin C , which can absorb the above nutrients, and there is usually enough vitamin C.
Calcium mainly constitutes the basic element of bones and teeth. If the intake is insufficient, it is very likely to lead to risks such as premature birth and pregnancy-induced hypertension.
You can eat cheese and cheese (low-fat), or eat dark green leafy vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, cabbage, tofu, dried shrimp and fish. The recommended menu can be boiled with cabbage, tofu and dried shrimp in chicken broth, which is rich in taste and nutritious.
Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are divided into two types : DHA and EPA . DHA mainly helps the development of the brain and eyesight
The main sources are fish such as salmon, sardines, yellow croaker, red shirt, saury, and mullet, which are rich in DHA . At the same time, α - linolenic acid in flaxseed, walnut or canola oil can also be transformed for DHA
Generally, if pregnant women eat a balanced diet, they do not need to use health products to supplement the lack of nutrients in the body, but some sources of nutrition have certain potential risks. For example, fish is the source of nutrition. Due to environmental pollution, fish is prone to contain mercury. It will affect both the nervous system of the fetus, so as a mother, you must pay attention! At the same time, dietary preferences will definitely affect the nutritional balance. I believe that all mothers will not like the food they eat, and believe that it is difficult to change it at any time. Therefore, health supplements are definitely a good substitute to supplement these nutrients.
