Can malt drink cause miscarriage? Mixing malt and milk during pregnancy…
Malt is very good in pregnancy and pregnant women are encouraged to talk malt drink. Malt drink is a good energy drink for pregnant women and cannot cause miscarriage. Yes, malt drink cannot cause miscarriage or pregnancy loss. Malt is completely safe in pregnancy and does not cause congenital birth defects or miscarriage as most women fear…Are you pregnant, you can drink Malta guiness, dubic malt, Amstel malt, maltina , beta malt etc
Mixing Malt (maltina, Malta Guiness,Dubic Malt, Amstel malt) and peak milk will not give you a single drop of blood in pregnancy.
For your body to make blood, it needs mainly iron, folic acid and Vitamin B. Your favourable milk and malt do not contain them in enough amounts to build blood. Don’t waste your time and money. Take Ugu leaves instead, it has iron and can give blood coupled with the fact that it is safe in pregnancy.
Malt and Milk does not give blood in pregnancy neither will they boost your hemoglobin level. In simple terms, they do not give blood!
Rather mixing malt and milk are “energy drinks” in pregnancy. They are not blood tonics.
So essentially Peak Milk is mainly fats, carbohydrates and protein. “Blood tonics” need to be rich in IRON- that is easily absorbable by the body- because this is what your body needs and uses to make blood! And unfortunately, Peak Milk has NONE of that. There is NO Iron in it.”
So does that make sense so far? IF it is NOT rich in Iron, it cannot help you to build Hemoglobin and Red Blood Cells- which is essentially what you need to “build blood”. Do you understand? So this is why doctors just laugh at the popular myth of “malt and milk give blood”
Now you can see, iron is essentially the important component of all blood tonic. However, If you look at some milk brands, they include that “this product does not contain iron”, probably in a bid to demystify some story that milk is somehow essential parts of blood tonics.
Here are some of the best ways of increasing your blood haemoglobin during pregnancy.
Fruits like oranges, berries, carrots, apple, ginger etc. 70% of your body’s iron is contained in hemoglobin. Therefore, in order to boost your hemoglobin levels, it is important to eat more iron-rich foods like red meat, poultry, tofu, chickpeas, peas, beans and fish. This will increase red blood cells, blood count and keep your body functioning normally. Also, it will protect you against iron deficiencies. Women’s daily requirement of iron is more than those of men because of their monthly menstrual cycle. Iron demand in pregnancy is even higher.
Foods that increase red blood cell counts
red meat, such as beef, organ meat, such as kidney and liver, dark, leafy, green vegetables, such as spinach and kale.
Dried fruits, such as prunes and raisins. Others are beans, legumes, and egg yolks.
