Most experts recommend not eating jackfruit during pregnancy, simply because of a lack of scientific evidence about its safety during pregnancy. SOme websites tell it is not safe, as it may induce a miscarriage, and others say it is absolutely safe.
It seems a mystery to me. Herbpathy would you like to comment ?

Dear Ana and Shreya There is no proven evidence that the Herb is safe to be consumed during pregnancy. So, it is best to avoid the fruit which has such risks associated with it. There are other plenty of fruits which are healthy and can be consumed during pregnancy. Avoid eating Jackfruit during pregnancy

Linda. You may try giving him Ripe jackfruit, one bowl everyday for 15 days. Do not give him herbs that are hot in nature. If you think Soursop did not suit him, then do not give this herb.
Wheatgrass juice, 30 ml can be taken every morning for a month. Give him Carrot juice, 2 glasses daily for 2 months.
Talk to your doctor before you try any herb.

After many hours during the night it leaves my face dry and fellt like burnt. After 2 days applied moisturizer to help my dry face. The result was reddish and itchy. What should i do?
