Being pregnant means you have to steer clear of many things you like to eat and drink to ensure that your baby is perfectly healthy when it’s born. For the lady Matcha lovers out there, whether it’s safe to drink Matcha during pregnancy is a big concern.
At Teaologists, we care about your health and your baby’s. Let us shed some light on this and let you know things that are important for yourself and your soon-to-be-born baby.
Matcha is the healthiest beverage on earth. It is chock-full of antioxidants which are extremely healthy for you and your soon-to-be-born bundle of joy.
Well, it's safe to drink until you keep the intake to around 200mg per day, although, you should know that Matcha releases caffeine into your bloodstream much slower than coffee does.
To be on the safe side, and taking into account the other foods and beverages containing caffeine that you might eat and drink during pregnancy, we would advise you to limit your Matcha intake to 1 cup a day.
However, pay attention to the signals your body is sending you. Every human being is different in the way which caffeine affects them. If you feel any kind of discomfort, stop the intake immediately and consult your doctor.
Since babies absorb all their nutrition from their mothers, pregnant women need to be very careful about where they get their nutrition from and just how much is the right amount.
You needn't worry about that really, because to cross the limit, you would have to drink around 6 cups of Matcha a day. That is, of course, assuming you don't take caffeine from any other source.
During pregnancy, your body is vulnerable to a variety of threats, and not all of them are posed by caffeine.
Here's a list of 5 foods and beverages to avoid when you're expecting.
Like everyone else, it’s natural for lactating mothers to crave certain foods and drinks. It’s safe to eat and drink healthy foods and beverages like Matcha tea in moderation. But it’s wise to keep an eye on your baby’s body dynamics. If you notice changes in your baby’s sleep cycle, stop drinking Matcha for sometime.
Though, caffeine is not the only thing you should watch out for. Matcha contains a lot of phytonutrients which are beneficial for your body but no so much for your child's. But keep in mind that it's not just about the caffeine and phytonutrients. It's about the overall wellbeing of the mother.
If you're healthy, your child will be healthy. If a cup or two of Matcha makes you happy, it'll make your baby happy as well.
