Tamarind is a fruit indigenous to tropical Africa. It is, therefore, widely used in Asian and African countries. Tamarind is an excellent option for pregnant women who crave something sour. This sour fruit is a cure for nausea, which is one of the most common ailments during pregnancy. Apart from that, tamarind also helps in reducing constipation as it is rich in dietary fibre. The iron content in this fruit also helps in increasing the count of red blood cells during pregnancy. Pregnant and breast feeding women need 20-30 mg of iron every day. Adequate amounts of iron will prevent premature birth of the baby. Hence, tamarind is a good addition to your pregnancy diet.

However, it is advisable to not have too many tamarinds at the same time. Consult with your doctor to find the quantities of tamarind right for you.
