What’s In Our Ultimate Combat Morning Sickness Juice?
Did you know morning sickness is often caused because you are using up so many vitamins and minerals quickly? Many moms quickly become depleted in key nutrients. The usual suspects (deficiencies) causing nausea and vomiting in pregnancy are Vitamin B6, B12, Magnesium, Zinc, and Vitamin D. Making sure you’ve got enough of these in your system could help ease the nausea and vomiting.
That’s why we paired common nausea fighting foods like ginger and lemon with nutrient dense food like carrots, beets and a deliciously sweet pear. Combine them all in a juicer and pour over ice and you have a sweet treat with powerful morning sickness fighting abilities.

How Does Each Ingredient Help Combat Morning Sickness?
I have a strong fondness for the vibrant and zesty nature of lemons, not just for the cheerful hue they bring. These citrus fruits pack a powerful punch in combating morning sickness. Beyond their high Vitamin C content that fortifies the immune system, lemons aid in iron absorption.
Surprisingly, the intake of prenatal vitamins with iron during the first trimester can amplify feelings of morning sickness. That’s because the body can’t absorb iron from supplements well.
Foods, like lemon, and this juice with. a hefty serving of lemon, can help your body use and process the iron in your body. This is the practical reason lemon can sometimes help relieve morning sickness symptoms.
2 Small Carrots Or 1 Large Carrot
Carrots, known for their nutrient-rich composition, may indirectly aid in managing some symptoms of morning sickness. Packed with essential vitamins such as A and C, they contribute to stable blood sugar levels and promote healthy digestion, potentially alleviating discomfort associated with morning sickness.
1 Inch Ginger
Ginger is a widely recognized natural remedy for morning sickness due to its anti-nausea properties and digestive benefits. It contains compounds that help alleviate the sensation of nausea and vomiting, making it an effective solution for managing morning sickness during pregnancy. By promoting the production of digestive juices and neutralizing stomach acids, ginger aids in digestion and can ease nausea and vomiting.
Beets contain vitamin B6, which has been associated with reducing symptoms of nausea and vomiting. It also provides tons of B9 – which is more commonly known as folate. Folate is one of those nutrients that helps protect babies against birth defects – especially early in pregnancy. Not only that, but beet root juice also supports both diastolic and systolic blood pressure. So mamas that are worried about preeclampsia or have a history of high blood pressure might benefits from including beets in their diet throughout pregnancy!
1 Handful Spinach
Spinach, a nutrient-rich leafy green vegetable, can potentially aid in managing morning sickness due to its rich nutritional profile, including essential vitamins such as A, C, and K, as well as iron, calcium, and folate. On top of that, it has several of the most important nutrients to help combat morning sickness: vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc.
Pear juice, known for its gentle and mild flavor, can be a soothing option that may help alleviate some symptoms of morning sickness. Its gentle nature can potentially ease stomach discomfort and reduce feelings of nausea, providing relief for pregnant individuals experiencing morning sickness.
If you don’t like pears, try substituting with a sweet red apple.

How To Make The Juice
Juicing is one of the simplest processes out there. You simply gather and prep your ingredients. For us that means washing the vegetable and fruits first. Then, cut off the tops of the carrots. We leave the beet greens on and juice those right along with the beet root. Cut everything into reasonable lengths that will fit in your juicer, turn the juicer on and process each one. With that, you’re done.
