Natural relief for nausea and vomiting
Nausea and vomiting are synonymous with early pregnancy. Roughly 80 percent of women suffer from morning sickness and in some cases; expectant mothers may experience morning sickness (or all day sickness) until their third month of pregnancy or beyond. Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop because you’re pregnant or nauseous, so we are sharing two natural remedies for relieving morning sickness.
Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, supports a number of bodily functions like the production of red and white blood cells, protein absorption and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. Also, vitamin B6 deficiencies have been linked to nausea and morning sickness. Therefore, a healthy dose of vitamin B6 can often alleviate nausea-related vomiting. Natural sources of vitamin B6 include sweet bell peppers, spinach, squash, bananas, potatoes, sunflower seeds, chicken and pork.
Studies have shown that ginger can actually decrease instances of nausea and vomiting. Eating or drinking anything that contains real ginger may be as effective as some medications for treating nausea and an upset stomach. Natural ginger is best (instead of sugary ginger ale or ginger snaps) and can be grated for tea or sprinkled on top of your favourite dish. Many traditional Asian or Indian recipes call for this beneficial and fragrant herb.
For some women, the taste of ginger only aggravates their nausea. This is part of the reason why Platinum Naturals has combined both vitamin B6 and ginger to create the ultimate anti-nausea aid in an easy to swallow capsule. While this anti-nausea product was designed to alleviate morning sickness safely and effectively, it can also help those who are suffering from motion sickness and digestive upsets.
Be sure to check with your doctor or natural healthcare provider before taking any supplements during pregnancy.
