Pregnancy is undoubtedly a very special time in a woman’s life, although circumstances and symptoms will vary from person to person. Many mothers-to-be work hard to improve their lifestyles and eating habits in order to protect their growing baby’s health. Challenges may arise since hormones shift and every woman’s body goes through significant changes.
Experiencing digestive discomfort, especially nausea, is common in the first trimester of pregnancy. As the fetus grows, the mother’s stomach and intestines are affected and the production of digestive enzymes decreases, which may lead to occasional intestinal discomfort, gas, bloating, indigestion and reduced appetite.1 This all occurs at a time when optimal digestion and nutrient assimilation are crucial to both the mother and the baby.
DigestTM Pregnancy is a pure and gentle formula with a unique combination of vegetarian enzymes and organic ginger root to help women cope with occasional digestive discomforts common to pregnancy.*
The comprehensive formula contains a variety of enzymes that each serves a different purpose:
· Protease is a proteolytic enzyme that is included to help the body break down proteins.
· Amylase and lipase aid in digesting carbohydrates and fats, respectively.
· Cellulase, glucoamylase, lactase, maltase, xylanase, invertase and pectinase are specific enzymes that work synergistically to help the body digest food properly.*
· Phytase has been shown to support and improve the absorption of calcium and magnesium, which are very important minerals for a developing fetus.2*
· Ginger is a long-used botanical ingredient that has been shown to aid in reducing nausea.* Many women have found ginger root to be beneficial during pregnancy.3
From conception to delivery, Digest Pregnancy may help mothers during the pivotal prenatal stage by lessening occasional digestive discomforts while promoting nutrient absorption and reducing nausea.*
