Because of this, we should start to re-examine how the quality of the intake we eat, and compare it with various nutritional tables specifically for pregnant women. Try to keep the nutrients we consume every day not too far from these various guidelines, which are the results of research from various experts who are competent in their fields.
As a general guide, it is highly recommended to always multiply fruits, vegetables and also various foods with adequate protein content as a helper for the development of the fetus in the womb. And if needed, take dietary supplements to help increase the amount of nutrients needed.
Sari dates as supplements
When it comes to supplements for pregnant women, there are tons of products to choose from. However, what we have read firsthand the results of scientific research from various sources, and we have also experienced the benefits for ourselves is the Dates Juice, to be precise during the wife’s first pregnancy a few years ago.
Date juice is a supplement that is produced from the pressing results of dates (Phoenix dactylifera L), so that it becomes a thick liquid ready for consumption. In terms of nutrition, there is no difference between the dates that have not been pressed, and the date juice itself.
Nutrition in Dates Sari
In general, pregnant manites generally need to consume more calories than their non-pregnant counterparts. Estimates are around 300-400 calories more. However, it is not only the additional calories needed by a pregnant woman, but also additional nutrition (supplementation) that is closely related to the development of the baby, especially those that contain lots of calcium, folate and iron.
For pregnant women, date palm extract is one of the right supplements for this case, because it not only contains additional calories but also contains various nutrients needed by the fetus, such as:
Potassium: which can help to stabilize the electrolyte content in the blood. The content of potassium in every 100 grams of dates is approximately 696 mg, or meets about 16% of daily intake needs.
Calcium: that needed to help bone growth in the fetus (fetus). Every 100 grams of dates contains approximately 64 mg, or 6.5% of the normal daily requirement.
Iron : which helps to prevent anemia and prevents the body from becoming too tired. Every 100 grams of dates contains approximately 0.9 mg, or 11% of the normal daily requirement.
Protein: which helps to maintain fetal growth properly. Proteins are the main building blocks of human cells. Every 100 grams of dates contain 2.3% – 5.6% daily protein requirements.
Fiber / Fiber: which helps to prevent pregnancy complications such as hemorrhoids and constipation (constipation). Every 100 grams of dates contain 6.4% – 11.5% daily fiber requirements.
For the latter (dietary fiber), although rarely discussed, it is actually quite important. According to research American Journal of Hypertension (August 2008), consuming foods rich in fiber early in pregnancy will help reduce the risk of pre-enclampsia (pregnancy poisoning) at the end of pregnancy.
That is the brief information we can provide. Hopefully it can help you to know more about the benefits of this beneficial herbal, as we already know and feel the benefits for ourselves.
