I’ve had lots of friends ask about my prenatal nutrition since posting that I’m preggo with #2. Here's the scoop! •Prenatal Nutrition•
Here's my prenatal regimen -a double dose of my Juice Plus capsules and our new Omegas. No commercial prenatal vitamins for this baby boy. I've always skipped the isolated supplements and instead get as many fruits, veggies and plants into my body as possible 🍇🍒🍅🏋️♀️ Why do I use Juice Plus for my prenatal?
Juice Plus has a pregnancy study showing that moms that ate Juice Plus during their pregnancy not only had a healthier pregnancy and delivery but also their babies fared better with birth weight, no respiratory issues and no trips to the NICU.
Did you know that there is no research showing that commercial, isolated prenatal vitamins are supporting our bodies at all? In fact, there is new research out showing that isolated vitamins can actually have an adverse effect on your health. In contrast, there are thousands of studies showing that fruits and vegetables prevent and fight disease and support every system in the human body.
Even if a prenatal or vitamin claims to be a whole food vitamin, coming from food sources, it is still the isolated vitamins pulled from food sources. If it has a 'supplement facts' label, it is isolated vitamins. Juice Plus has a nutrition label, meaning the government sees it as FOOD (since that's 100% what it is) and that it's regulated as such under the USDA. You are getting thousands more vitamins and minerals from 30+ whole foods rather than the 30 vitamins put into a multivitamin or prenatal.
If you or someone you love is trying to conceive or currently pregnant, please let me know if you'd like to check out the results from the Juice Plus pregnancy study - this is something that is near and dear to my heart as a mama and dietitian.
