Regarding the side effects that Garcinia Cambogia may have during the pregnancy stage, there are yet several ongoing clinical studies that are conducted. This is the current situation.

There is a notorious trend in all media about Garcinia Cambogia. This is a dietary supplement extracted from tropical fruit of a tree in the Far East. This fruit was consumed by the natives for long time. People loses weight with its ingestion dramatically and immediately. It is claimed that there are no side effects at all as it is very natural.

However actually this is not true. The Cambogia rinds that the natives extract for their own use are different the supplement that is consumed in Europe and America.  There is a chemical process to elaborate the product and it has a shelf life afterwards. There are no standards in which chemicals the manufacturer should use and no specific principles in the European and American food and drug agencies.

When the different brands that produce Garcinia Cambogia products are tested, it is discovered that the active ingredient required for the weight loss process is just 19% to 32%. The different potency means that there is a chemical preparation and the end product is not so natural as the brands claim.

For this reason, we ask ourselves, which are the side effects that this supplement has, and which consequences entails for the recipient if it is during the pregnancy and breastfeeding stage and if there are effects in the cord blood.

To remain on the safe side, and as a precautionary measure, during breastfeeding and of course, pregnant women, are advised to dismiss the ingestion of this dietary supplement at all.

This supplement is known to be very effective for weight loss. The pregnant woman, eats for two persons, herself and the fetus that is developing inside her. So in this case, as the developing fetus will ingest a part of what the mother eats, this will leave her weaker than ever.

The avoidance of Garcinia Cambogia is not only during the pregnancy stage but also later on during the breastfeeding stage. A high reserve of energy is required when the mother goes into labor. As Garcinia Cambogia burns the fats stored in the organism, the pregnant woman cannot replenish the storage of fat required continuously.

During the breastfeeding stage the same prohibition to ingest Garcinia Cambogia remains: This supplement envisages a suppress of appetite and likewise, an increase of metabolism. Therefore, the mother will feel always satiated, and this satiation will immediately discourage her from consuming meals.

Garcia Cambogia normally interferes with blood pressure and percentage of sugar in blood and also for this reason it is not safe during pregnancy. This supplement has the attribute of interfering with the aforementioned functions in a way that cannot be predicted. A notorious shift in blood pressure might be hazardous for the developing fetus and the mother.

As a conclusion, we can define that the mother has to consult her physician and that in general, this dietary supplement has to be dismissed completely during pregnancy and also during breastfeeding. Return to our main menu regarding the cord blood banking.
