Milk should be one of the staples of a pregnant woman’s diet. The American Pregnancy Association recommends at least three servings of dairy a day during pregnancy. Dairy products not only contain vitamin A and vitamin D, but are a great source of protein and calcium as well, all which help your baby grow and develop properly.
The key nutrients during pregnancy include folic acid, calcium, vitamin D, iron and essential fatty acids. In additional, the milk is low in fat content in order to support appropriate weight gain and to provide valuable nutrients with less fat. There is an increased need for iron and zinc during pregnancy as iron is needed to support formation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of the body while zinc helps in physical development and is essential for growth. The product contains Prebiotic PromitorTM that nourishes the beneficial bacteria in the gut to support a healthy digestive system.
After delivery, it is essential that a breastfeeding mother continues to have nutrients for both herself and the baby. Daily intake of Folic Acid, Iron, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin and Vitamin B12 is necessary to promote the baby’s brain cell development.
