Pecans are packed with nutrients which are essential for the growth and development of your baby. They have high levels of Omega-3, a nutrient that helps in the visual and cognitive development of the baby. Omega-3 also helps in maintaining the production of a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin.
Prostaglandins help regulate many important physiological functions including blood pressure, blood clotting, nerve transmission, the inflammatory and allergic responses, the functions of kidneys and gastrointestinal tract and the production of other hormones in your body during pregnancy. Hence, pecans are a wonderful addition to your pregnancy diet.
