Has anyone taken New Chapter Berry Green during pregnancy?  I am wondering if it is safe to take.  It does contain parsley, which I have read is unsafe in large doses during pregnancy.  However, New Chapter recommends it for pregnancy on their website, and when I called the company the man that I spoke to said that it is a really small amount, and they actual promote using Berry Green during pregnancy.  He said that it is safe.  Any personal experiences with it?

 

Here is a link to the product information: http://www.newchapter.com/targeted-herbal-formulas/berry-green#product-information 

 

Thanks!!

I personally would take it!  If you are nervous, check with your healthcare provider.

 

I love that company, superior products.  I took their prenatals during my pregnancy and if I'd known about that one, you bet!  Thinking I should be taking it now!

On the days that I can stomach it, I take it.  I was first introduced to it in my last pregnancy...  My midwives keep the big size at their practice for mamas to drink during appointments if they'd like.  They were pleased to hear that this go round I was taking it from the beginning.  It's good stuff!
