Greetings to all lovely would-be mothers in Watford! Good nutrition during pregnancy is very very very important! Do you know pregnancy can even cause iron-deficiency anaemia in some women? Do you also know that vitamin C helps in the proper absorption of iron?
That’s why I drink a small glass of tomato juice every day to get the perfect dose of vitamin C. Here are the benefits of drinking tomato juice during pregnancy.
Before we begin, allow me to remind you to get regular ultrasound scans from a reputed baby scan clinic in Watford. Now, let’s take a look at the benefits quickly.
Strengthens the immune system
Trust me, everyone. After drinking tomato juice every single day, I can feel how powerful my immunity has become. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A and C, making them perfect for strengthening the immune system. Since pregnancy can lead to frequent cough and colds, I would like to suggest all pregnant women to consume a glass of tomato juice daily.
Tomato juice keeps you refreshed and activated. I used to feel very tired during my first trimester but since I’ve started taking tomato juice, this problem has almost disappeared. So, drink tomato juice and say goodbye to fatigue during pregnancy.
Heart’s best friend
Tomatoes have nicotinic acid that reduces bad cholesterol, thus keeping the heart healthy and happy during pregnancy. Still need more convincing to drink tomato juice, huh? Read more points mentioned below.
Prevents gestational diabetes
As a pregnant woman, we all get concerned about gestational diabetes. Not anymore, as we have tomato juice on our side. If you are at risk of developing gestational diabetes, drink 1 glass of fresh tomato juice without fail.
Ultimate health drink
Tomato juice has a very rich nutritional content. It contains potassium, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, and other necessary vitamins and minerals. As tomato juice is rich in vitamin C, it helps in better absorption of iron as I have already mentioned earlier.
Here’s my recipe for tomato juice.
- In a blender, add 3-4 boiled, blanched, and chopped tomatoes.
- Add half a cup of water as required.
- Blend properly.
- Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper for added taste.
Many people add celery and other seasonings to amplify the taste of tomato juice. If you want, you can do that too.
