During pregnancy, you may have become more likely to worry about the right diet. You are wondering, “will this product harm me and my unborn baby?”.
For example: a banana during pregnancy. After all, it is considered an overseas fruit, and we have always been told that during pregnancy you can only eat fruits grown in our climate zone! And if during pregnancy you want a banana, do you really have to give it up, in favor of other fruits?
On the one hand, our body, indeed, more easily accepts the food of our native land, but on the other hand: bananas have long been familiar to our body.
What is useful in a banana?
What are the benefits of bananas during pregnancy, what micro and macro elements, as well as vitamins, do they contain? This fruit contains such valuable substances:
1 Vitamin B6. This is a valuable vitamin that supports and directly affects the formation of the baby’s circulatory system in the womb. It is also he who removes the symptom of toxicosis during pregnancy (for more details on how to cope with toxicosis, read the article Nausea during pregnancy
2Vitamin B9. Known as folic acid. It is this vitamin that is often prescribed already in the first stages.
