To facilitate the work of the gallbladder

During pregnancy a large release of hormones enhances the functioning of the internal glands, so bile is produced in greater quantities than is necessary for the digestion of food. Excess bile juice in the stomach to reduce the acidity and inhibit its evacuation function at the slightest antiperistaltics cuts content from the stomach enters the esophagus and causes bitterness.

To resolve a bitter taste in the mouth should eat easily digestible foods such as vegetables and fruits. The breakdown of the fruit fibers expended a large amount of bile juice, and acidic fruits, such as tangerines and oranges, help to restore the acidity. Be aware that fresh fruits can be eaten 4-5 hours before sleep so the body has time to digest them.

To help cope with the extra bile flow the vegetables that are rich in fiber. Better to eat steamed or boiled culture. Fiber-rich fiber - zucchini, carrots and cabbage. In potatoes higher in starch and carbohydrates, so it can cause reflux of bile into the esophagus and a bitter aftertaste.

Dairy products dilute the bile, which helps to raise the acidity to the desired level. Be aware of the fat content of these products - the lower it is, the better for the digestion of a pregnant woman.

If you activate evacuation the stomach, the contents will not stagnate in it and the bitterness will decrease. So necessary for the body products rich in fiber. These include fruits, vegetables and cereals. A Breakfast of oatmeal or barley with added fruit is perfect for the correct operation of the stomach of the expectant mother. It will not only improve the gastro-intestinal tract, but also saturate the body with beneficial vitamins and minerals.

Will help to get rid of the bitter taste of bile fresh juices with a sour taste, for example, Apple or birch. Can't drink concentrated and highly acidic drinks such as pomegranate juice or cranberry juice. The body is designed so that when excessive suppression of bile, its secretion will increase, so it is important not to overdo it.
