Congratulations on your pregnancy!
If you are searching for a product that can help supplement your nutritional needs during and after your pregnancy, you have come to the right website. Read on and we will show you the importance of nutritional supplementation and how S-26® MAMA can help you achieve your nutrient requirements while supporting appropriate weight gain with less fat.
A healthy pregnancy and breastfeeding begins with balanced nutrition
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, your needs for nutrients like DHA, Choline , Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Vitamins & Minerals are greater as maternal health sets the foundation for your baby’s development.
Therefore, you need to eat enough of the right combinations of nutrients to meet the increased nutritional needs of both you and your baby.
DHA & Choline, which are found in breastmilk, are important for pregnancy1,2,3. Supplementation with DHA has been found to increase the scores of the Mental Developmental Index (MDI), a childhood intelligence test.4 A mother’s choline status during the first half of pregnancy is associated with her child’s cognitive development.5
In addition, essential nutrients important during pregnancy and breastfeeding includes:
- Folic Acid - helps to maintain the growth and development of the foetus.
- Iron - required for formation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of the body.
- Calcium - supports the development of strong bones and teeth.
- Prebiotic supplements such as Oligofructose can help increase intestinal bifidobacteria to help maintain a healthy digestive system.6
Unfortunately, dietary studies shown that many women have dietary intakes below the recommended intake of many nutrients. Simply increasing your food intake may not be the answer as food quality is more important than quantity. The key to meeting these increased nutritional needs is to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, while maintaining appropriate weight gain.
S-26® MAMA is a low-fat milk designed to make this intake easier by supplying a significant portion of nutrient requirement for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
Pregnancy is a beautiful journey, make it even better with S-26® MAMA
