Can A Pregnant Woman Take Moringa Tea Or Seed?

CAN A PREGNANT WOMAN EAT MORINGA?

Hello Aunty Eya, how are you and your family? God bless you for everything am learning on your blog. God bless those who send us food recipes and all those who give meaningful advice. I have learnt so much. This mail is coming because my comment didn't get satisfactory advice. It was left as a comment but I think many people didn't get to see it there. Please help me post it cos I'm pregnant and want to continue taking my Moringa seeds if it's OK.

The energy I get from taking Moringa is something else Aunty Eya, I no longer feel as tired as I used to, I wake up
very alert no matter how hard I work the previous day ( Any witness in the house?). Although I don't really enjoy taking this Moringa tea or seeds, what keeps me going for more is the boost in energy. 

Some people have asked me to stop taking it until I give birth, others say it's just a plant like every other plant that we eat and shouldn't be discontinued. Someone even said  that "if a pregnant woman can eat spinach and ugu vegetable and seeds and other green plants and vegetables then Moringa should be encouraged during pregnancy."

Eya Replies: Yes vegetables are encouraged during pregnancy, however, moringa is very strong that's why sometimes pregnant women are advised to stay off until they give birth. Most pregnant women complain of running stomach after taking moringa, and we know that having a running stomach could lead to other problems during pregnancy. I took moringa seeds while pregnant because I didn't know they are staronger than the leaves, and because I had no problem after taking moringa does not mean it will be the same for every woman. You know, our bodies are different. I think it's best to avoid especially moringa seeds during pregnancy because they are stronger. It's just in less than a year that you give birth to your wonderful baby and resume your normal lifestyle. A little sacrifice won't hurt. But, if your Doctor says it's ok to take, then go on enjoy your moringa.

When I go to Antenatal registration, I intend to ask my Doctor.But For now I Googled and got confused even more because while some sites encourage pregnant women to take Moringa cos of it's nutritional value, I read on one site that it may lead to a miscarriage.  

To me, I'm convinced from all I've read that it is just a plant with more nutrition and richer in health benefits than other plants but I have so much trust in wives connection commentators that I feel there's need to hear what other readers have to say about this. 

There may also be someone who has taken it or seen someone take while pregnant and I will be happy to know because that will boost my confidence

Aunty Eya kindly post without my details and please people help help help a Moringa taking sister out.

  3. IMO, I don't feel it's safe taking moringa during pregnancy and please don't give the idea of it been medicinal as it's just a plant, or are you ignorant of plants and leaves that are medicinal(herbs) yet they induce miscarriage?
    Am no doctor madam and would ask u seek medical advice for baby/mother safety.

  8. I just had my baby on the 10th of July and I was taking moringa while I was pregnant, my doctor actually recommended it cos my blood pressure was abit high. My son was born just 3 days before my due date and is healthy so I believe moringa is very safe while pregnant.

    Moringa is very dangerous for women trying to conceive and those that are pregnant. It can prevent implantation and also cause abortions. I would NOT recommend it at all for pregnant woman.

    Moringa seed and leaf can not cause miscarriage but its the intake of moringa flower that causes miscarriage. so pregnant women should stay out of the flower not the leaf and seed. thanks

  17. I AM TYPING IN THIS IN CAPITALS FOR EMPHASIS PLEASE. I AM NOT SHOUTING. PLEASE KINDLY NOTE!
    I HAVE RECEIVED MANY CALLS FROM SINCERELY CONCERNED WIVES WHO HAVE READ MY FACEBOOK NOTE: https://www.facebook.com/notes/beloved-solomon-ternder-anzenge/how-to-take-moringa-seeds-for-best-results-plus-weightloss/10151545809150678.

    NOW TO CLEAR ALL YOUR DOUBTS about MORINGA AND PREGNANCY,
    I would say:
    1. YOU CAN TAKE MORINGA LEAVES/GRANULATED LEAVES WHILE PREGNANT.
    2. YOU CAN TAKE MORINGA TEA MADE FROM LEAVES WHEN PREGNANT
    3. YOU MAY NOT TAKE "MORINGA SEEDS" WHEN PREGNANT,
    REASONS:
    A. SOME PEOPLE PURGE AFTER TAKING THE SEEDS, FOR SUCH PEOPLE, BECAUSE OF
    CONTRACTIONS OF THE WOMB WHEN PURGING(SOMETIMES FIVE TIMES A DAY!), PLEASE
    WISDOM DEMANDS THEY AVOID THE SEEDS.
    ...THOSE CONTRACTIONS COULD INDUCE FALSE LABOR!...
    B. THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUFFERED MISCARRIAGE(AS A RESULT OF THE REASON IN (A)
    ABOVE!). SO TO BE ON A SAFER SIDE, TAKE ONLY THE LEAVES(AS VEGETABLES, GRANULATED
    LEAVES, TEA, ETC.). BUT AVOID THE SEEDS UNTIL DELIVERY.

    C. THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY. SO WHILE SOME MAY NOT BE AFFECTED, OTHERS HAVE
    ALREADY SUFFERED THE AFOREMENTIONED CONSEQUENCE.
    A LADY CALLED ME WHILE SERIOUSLY BLEEDING! SHE SAID SHE TOOK MORINGA SEEDS
    AFTER BEING PREGNANT FOR LIKE A MONTH. AND SHE LOST IT, SADLY.

    4. ALMOST IRONICALLY, OTHERS TRYING TO CONCEIVE (TTC) ACHIEVED PREGNANCY BY SHEAR TAKE OF MORINGA SEEDS! WE HAVE DIFFERENT BODY PHYSIOLOGIES, MY WIVES!

    5. MORINGA ROOTS AND FLOWERS ALSO HAVE ABORTIFACIENT PROPERTIES! SO AS A RULE OF THUMB, AVOID THESE LIKE A PLAGUE!
    I hope this helps you.
    I love you all, my wives!(Remember I(SOLOMON) married so many of you those days... LOL.
    Compliments!
    Yours lovely,
    DR. MORINGA.

    I've read from reliable site "Not to take moringa" while pregnant. I'm try to TTC and I can't even take because it prevent pregnancy. some have stronger body than the others. My dear woman stay off moringa please. If you have any health issue and the doctor advice you to take it please do otherwise don't. When nursing your baby you can start as it help the milk to flow more.

    From the research i've made so far on Moringa, i'll advice you just take the leaves for now. You can continue taking the seeds after delivery.

    At Annonymous: its really sad when people like you come on sites like this and make derogatory comments about comments made by well meaning people. If you have nothing to say, it would be a big favour to keep your comments about grammar to yourself.

    Yes its true, as Solomon said, that taking the seeds induces purging, but that only happens when taken on an empty stomach. I take 3 moringa seeds every morning before meals and it makes me deficate, but just once and that's it.

    I drank moringa early in my pregnancy thinking it was still safe for me. I immediately felt some uterine contractions. My pregnancy did not develop properly and I miscarried. Pls ladies do not drink moringa while pregnant or trying to get pregnant!! God bless to all of you

  25. The most important thing is know your body structure and what works for you! Been taking moringa leaf and seed before conception . I would say, it aided pregnancy for me. And this pregnancy is different from my first. I feel so strong and i achieve so much more in a day. I take approximately two to three seeds a day and I defecate just once a day.

    Unlike my first pregnancy where I was very sick in my first trimester (Didn't know about moringa then).

    Moringa even helps my teething son stay healthy. I blend the leaves and seeds with other fruits, he takes it well and since I started this, we have recorded no more teething troubles.

    Moringa (seed and fresh leaves) is great for me at pregnancy but I know that bodies are different. If you take it once and your body reacts badly to it through stooling etc, then discontinue till you give birth. And I do know that the flower is bad for pregnancy and should be avoided during this period.

  28. Moringa is very harmful for women attempting to conceive and the ones that are expecting. It can avoid implantation as well as cause abortions. I would NOT REALLY recommend this at all with regard to pregnant lady.

  33. I have read all your comments. For most ladies trying to conceive, moringa seads and leave is good for you, but you need to test run it first to see how your body react. Also try using turmeric powder its wonderful for conception and keeps the uterus healthy.
