Lime(chuna) in pregnancy

Good evening mam/sir, My wife is pregnant for 16 weeks now. I read somewhere that consuming Limestone(chuna) with pomegranate juice is very good for infant. It gives immunity to the foetus and helps in better development. Kindly guide me, should she consume it ? If yes, then in what quantity? Thank you

As calcium absorption is more in acidic medium that's why pomegranate juice. So you can take your calcium carbonate tablets along with citrus or pomegranate juice or with meals. Calcium citrate can be taken empty stomach.
