In our tradition after delivery, the mother is given foods that are of medicinal quality and there is a taboo for what to be eaten and what not to be eaten.
Why is it done? It is done because Mother’s Milk should have high levels of Polyphenols & Antioxidants and low MDA.
Whatever the mother eats all the good things will go through the Mother’s Milk to the child. The child will not take any other food other than their Mother’s Milk for six months.
It is the quality of the Mother’s Milk that decides the immunity of a growing child and not only in its childhood but till old age and also to the next generation.
We at AMMAGENOMICS offer tests for checking the quality of Mother’s Milk. We test for Polyphenols, Antioxidant and MDA and give results in a quick turnaround time.
This will help the mother to have full awareness of what she eats. It is very vital for mothers to have polyphenol-rich food like organic nuts, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, A2 milk, unrefined sugar and sweets. This polyphenol-rich diet will help mothers and also the growth of their little ones.
This publication explains dietary polyphenols which are phytonutrients that exhibit multiple health benefits in humans including those in infants.
