WHY YOU NEED THIS SHAKE DURING PREGNANCY
A growing baby during pregnancy needs protein to build the cells of its body, including the brain. The baby grows more rapidly during the second and third trimester, thus is an adequate protein intake vital for healthy fetal development. Experts recommend 75-100g of protein per day. Protein also helps the mother’s breast and uterine tissue to grow during pregnancy and plays a role in increasing blood supply.
Collagen helps restore hair back to health that can sometimes take a beating during pregnancy and post partum hormones. Collagen also helps with skin elasticity (helping to prevent stretch marks) and can help tighten the skin post partum. Collagen also supports skin, joints and muscle health. A daily dose of collagen during pregnancy can reduce your risk of osteoporosis later in life since women are at risk during pregnancy for bone resorption. Collagen helps reduce joint and muscle weakness caused by the hormone “relaxin” during pregnancy. Glycine in collagen also helps support quality sleep and neurological functioning.
Vitamin C, Zinc and high quality protein supports optimal recovery post birth.

The ground flax seed in our shake contains essential Omega 3 fatty acids that plays a prominent role in brain and central-nervous system development of the unborn baby. Flaxseed can also help control blood sugar levels, which reduces the chances of a high birth weight.
Included in our shake is a Multi Vitamin Mix that is needed to support the healthy development of the baby.
