In winter, we try to drink a lot of fruit drinks from frozen berries, in particular from lingonberries. When I once again brewed a drink in a thermos, I remembered that during pregnancy I was advised to drink such a drink, because It has many useful properties. No wonder the berry is also called a drop of immortality, because vitamins and minerals in it are not considered.
In its pure form, I do not really like the berry, because she is not at all sweet. But it is in the fresh state in lingonberries the maximum amount of vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, organic acids and minerals. In other words, it is easier and more beneficial for a pregnant woman to use lingonberries than synthetic vitamin complexes.
Although, when I was waiting for my daughters, Vitrum Prenatal drank, but I still tried to saturate my body with natural vitamins.
Judge for yourselves, cranberries contain large amounts of vitamins: B1, B2, C, A, as well as such minerals as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, iron, manganese, i.e. all that is so necessary for a growing baby.
And many future moms are afraid of allergies, but with regard to lingonberries you can not survive, this hypoallergenic berry.
When I was waiting for the second daughter, she did not notice how I started swelling. The doctor advised me to drink a bilberry broth, because it has a diuretic effect.
Additionally, I followed a salt-free diet. A few days later, the edemas were asleep, but I then saw a lingonberry drink as a preventive measure for beriberi and edema.
Pregnancy flew by quickly and I began to breastfeed my daughter. It was winter, there are few vitamins and I wondered if I could drink a drink from it?
Berry, as I wrote, is hypoallergenic, but still I was worried if there would be consequences for my baby. After trying to drink the infusion little by little, I watched my daughter’s skin and did not notice any rashes. After that, I used the berry without fear.
How I Brew Berry
Many make lingonberry a real decoction, but we act easier. I just throw berries in my thermos flask, add honey and pour boiling water over everything. After a couple of hours, a delicious drink is ready to eat!
Although lingonberries are actively recommended to use for pregnant women, it is still worthwhile to consult a doctor before drinking gulls with her. If you have problems with the digestive tract or urolithiasis, it is better to abstain from the berries.
And you used cranberries during pregnancy?
