In ER4YB , Dr D mentioned that green tea extract (from camilla sinensis) is not to be taken during pregnancy. But I found it in Exakta from NAP. My friend who is now pregnant is thinking of taking this product.

Pls advise.

The only reason I can think of :why green tea is not adviced by Dr D furing preganancy is due to the caffein
- but the extract must surely be without caffein. So it would be safe to use.

Another point:
Some dr and midwifes do not think it is neccersary to cut ALL green tea out of your program while pregnant
- so you have to make your own jungment- I could never imagine a pregnancy without chocolate and greentea- but I would use the lowest ammount- that is just me....

Thanks but can someone help to verify if it is really safe for pregnant women ? I need to be very sure before I tell her is ok.

Well can nap say it clearer ?:
"At different life stages, we can experience a higher biological need for more precise nutrient supplementation and support: growing children, "pregnant and nursing mothers, and seniors. It is for these groups that Dr. DíAdamo created the Exakta formula. Exakta is a precise proprietary blend of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and botanical concentrates and extracts.

Well I looked in the Eat Right 4 Your Baby book and all it says is to drink 1-3 cups pre-pregnancy and not to drink it while you are pregnant.  As mentioned above it could be because of the caffeine in it.
