During my first pregnancy I didn’t do much research on supplementation. A few months before we started trying to conceive I began taking a prenatal I found in the health food section of my local grocery store. Once we found out we were pregnant, I took supplementation a little more serious. I spent an hour at Supper Supplements reading the labels until I found what I thought was the best. That was the extent of my research. Wow I come a long way! I hadn’t been introduced to Shaklee yet and didn’t know the different between synthetic and whole food supplements. I thought I could get everything I needed in one pill a day.
I hope you know that all woman should supplement while pregnant because you are growing another person inside you. Most of us do not eat a “perfect diet” and therefore need a little extra help to make sure we are providing ourselves and baby with the extra nutrients to grow and develop correctly. I have chosen Shaklee supplements for this pregnancy and have felt amazing!
Shaklee’s been around for over 50 years and is the #1 natural nutrition company in the USA. You can watch a video about the Shaklee difference here.
I am not a doctor but Shaklee has lots of doctors on board and this is what they recommend for pregnancy.
Because the nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation are unique to this stage of a women’s life, we strongly urge all women who are pregnant or nursing to discuss the use of dietary supplements with their care provider.
However, along with our general recommendation to eat a healthy, well balanced diet to ensure pregnant and nursing women are meeting their nutritional needs, we also recommend a combination of Shaklee supplements that can be used as alternatives to a standard prenatal vitamin once discussed with your care provider.
An excellent “Shaklee Prenatal” would be:
2 tablets of Vita-Lea with Iron
2 tablets of B complex for the basic prenatal nutrients, in particular folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects
For women who do not consume enough dairy, the addition of:
2-4 tablets of OsteoMatrix can help meet needs for calcium,vitamin D and other bone health nutrients
To provide a safe and beneficial amount of omega 3 fatty acids (ie. DHA):
3 softgel capsules of OmegaGuard per day are recommended to support fetal brain development
It is not uncommon for some pregnant women to need the addition of:
1 tablet of Iron plus C can be added providing an additional 18 mg of Iron and 60 mg of Vitamin C
Shaklee 180 meal smoothee prepared as directed, and used as part of healthy breakfast or midday snack provides a mother and her growing baby with an additional 270 calories, 24 grams of high quality protein and 6 grams of fiber.
Although Vitalizer is a comprehensive nutritional foundation for virtually all adults, there are some components that might not generally be considered essential in a standard prenatal nutrition program. In addition, certain nutrients such as folic acid were not included at levels intended to support a pregnant mother and her growing baby. The use of Vitalizer during pregnancy should be discussed with the care provider, who may wish to suggest an addition 1-2 B Complex and Osteomatrix as stated above if approved for you.
Here is a video of Shaklee’s Dr. Jamie talking about the importance of good supplementing during pregnancy.
I recommend everything that Shaklee recommends with a few additional lifestyle products.
Shaklee 180 Energy Tea for increased energy. Pregnancy in general is exhausting. Chasing after a toddler, working full time, while being pregnant is beyond exhausting. Since I don’t drink coffee or soda, I do find I need an afternoon boost sometimes. This tea is amazing and really helps me get through the day. No more than 1-2 teas a day.
Get Clean Non-Toxic Cleaners and Natural Laundry Products because you should NOT be cleaning with toxic cleaners. If you haven’t switched to natural cleaners yet, you should ASAP. If not for you, for your baby. This kit has everything you need to start cleaning your way to a healthier home.
Enfuselle Skin Care and Natural Hair Care because you should remove all toxins from your home including your what goes on your skin! Did you know that anything you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body and by baby! Yuck!
Natural Daily Care like toothpaste, deodorant, lotions, etc. because I believe you should remove all toxins.
Stay tuned for my posts about postpartum care and breastfeeding nutrition.
Congrats on your pregnancy! I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy, birth, and baby!
Enjoy this time. Thank you for letting me help you build the healthiest baby.
I am NOT a doctor. I am sharing this information from my personal experience and research. ALWAYS check with your doctor if you are unsure about anything. In addition, some Shaklee products say “Not recommended for pregnant women.” They are obligated to say this because Shaklee does not do product testing on pregnant women. These products may be safe, but check with your doctor to be sure.
Also, I was not paid to write this post, however, the links included are affiliate links to my Shaklee shop as I am a distributor. Anything you purchase through these links goes directly to me to help support my family so I thank you very much for that!
