Preeclampsia a condition in pregnancy with expression of high blood pressure, sometimes with fluid retention and proteinuria. According to the joint study led by Bharati Vidyapeeth University women with PE are associated to increase oxidative stress right from 16 to 20 weeks of gestation(1). Study suggested the implication of concentrations of increased free fatty acid (FFA), and decreased activity of antioxidant enzyme in placenta may contribute to oxidative damage levels(2) in placental mitochondria in women with PE)(3). Levels of vitamin C(orange) and E(Sweet Potato) were significantly negative for overall preeclampsia(4).
Women who are at high risk of Preeclampsia due to family history,..... should drink at least one serving daily and women with Preeclampsia should drink the smoothie as much as they can, depending to digestive toleration.
Life style and dietary patter change are recommended.
