From my mailbox;

Dear Nimedhealth,

My name is folake and I am 4 months pregnant. My morning sickness have been so severe so I have found solution in drinking lacasera. Whenever I take lacasera, the nausea and vomiting that comes with my morning sickness stops. So I have been taking it more often. Sometimes , as a pregnant women i take two plastic bottles of lacasera daily. Recently my friend told me that taking lacasera in pregnancy can cause miscarriage and premature labour. I am also worried that lacasera can cause congenital birth defects and big baby syndrome because of the too much sugar. Please doctor, I need your advice, can a pregnant woman drink Lacasera apple drink? What are the side effects ?
