What is the Best Time to Drink Saffron Milk during Pregnancy?

Consumption of saffron milk during pregnancy is a widely recommended age-old practice in India and many other countries. The main reason why it is a traditional practice that is still followed today is the lure of having a healthy baby with a fair complexion.

Besides this myth, saffron milk has specific health benefits, as researched by Allopathy and Ayurveda, and promotes a healthy pregnancy. Let's delve into reasons why every pregnant woman should drink saffron milk and some pregnancy tips.

Additionally, it's worth considering the importance of stem cell banking for securing the future health of both the mother and the newborn.

Reason Why Pregnant Women Should Drink Saffron Milk

Saffron contains safranal, carotenoids, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and crocin molecules. These aid the mother’s digestion and blood circulation, help reduce her mood swings (due to its compounds Kaempferol and Safranal), and control cold and stuffy nose experienced during pregnancy. Besides, it helps keep diabetes under control.

Saffron helps improve the immunity and bone strength of the baby. Additionally, milk provides calcium and vitamin D for the baby’s bone health, iodine for the baby’s brain, and amino and fatty acids for the baby’s nervous system development. So, whenever you feel pregnancy cravings for something sweet, don't forget to add some saffron to your milk for additional benefits.

When to Drink Saffron Milk During Pregnancy?

As per Ayurveda, it is safe to take saffron after the first trimester. However, most doctors advise taking saffron only after the baby’s movement is felt to ensure a healthy pregnancy. It is recommended that the dosage of saffron should not exceed 5 grams per day. This is because saffron can stimulate the uterus and increase the risk of miscarriage.

Further, as saffron is mixed with milk before intake, the ideal time for drinking milk should also be followed. Here, there is no standard guideline; you can consume it as per your comfort or liking.

Women who experience morning sickness during pregnancy should consume saffron milk at night as milk aggravates the symptoms of morning sickness. If you are prone to gastrointestinal discomforts or sleeplessness, it is best to consume saffron milk during pregnancy in the morning.
