Probiotics are best known for their role in supporting healthy digestive and immune systems, and this is no different during pregnancy (a time when you might need that support most!).* In fact, evidence shows that when mom supplements with probiotics, baby benefits!Footnote 1
There are a range of ways to incorporate more probiotics into your diet, starting first with food! Yogurts, kimchi, sauerkraut, and even those often-craved pickles (make sure they are traditionally fermented!) can contribute probiotic strains when consumed regularly.
In addition to eating more of these foods, probiotic supplements are a great way to ensure a meaningful blend of beneficial strains every day, while ensuring you’re getting ones that are known to be supportive during pregnancy.
For instance, studies have shown that specific probiotic strains, such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus (HN001), taken during the last trimester and early breastfeeding, supports the child’s developing immune system.*
With that in mind, we crafted MegaFlora® Probiotic for Baby & Me with a broad spectrum of probiotics, including our blend of 14 unique strains of 20 billion probiotics plus 10 billion CFUs of HN001 to support baby. FoodState® Ginger is also included to soothe upset tummies and support healthy digestive function* -a MUST during pregnancy! You’ll also notice prebiotics foods in there, which are added to promote the health and wellbeing of pregnant and breastfeeding women.*
We recommend taking two capsules of MegaFlora for Baby & Me daily with a meal. Why with food? Based on the historical consumption of probiotics with or IN food, such as fermented foods, it is thought that foods help to buffer the probiotics against the potentially damaging effects of stomach acids.Footnote 2
A great tip is to associate taking your probiotic with a specific meal, as MegaFlora for Baby & Me lives in the refrigerator, and can be easier to remember when you’re already getting out your greens to make dinner each night!
