A Healthy Pregnancy with Shaklee

As a Shaklee distributor and pregnant mom, I’ve been asked by a number of women what prenatal vitamin I take. I strongly believe in supplementing, especially during pregnancy –  you are growing another person inside you and you need the extra nutrients!

I have taken Shaklee supplements throughout my second pregnancy and credit my Shaklee prenatal vitamins and nutrition products for my healthy pregnancy {along with a mostly 🙂 healthy lifestyle… I mean c’mon, a pregnant girl’s gotta have ice cream, right?}.

Shaklee’s been around for over 50 years and is the #1 natural nutrition company in the USA. Learn more about the Shaklee difference:

I am not a doctor but Shaklee has many doctors on board and this is what they recommend for pregnancy….

The Shaklee Prenatal Vitamin “Cocktail”

NOTE FROM SHAKLEE: 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 obstetrician. Along with our general recommendation to eat a healthywell 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 the Obstetrician.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
  • 2-4 tablets of OsteoMatrix can help meet needs for calcium,vitamin D and other bone health nutrients for women who do not drink milk or eat the recommended number of servings of dairy
  • 3 softgel capsules of OmegaGuard per day are recommended to support fetal brain development and provide a safe and beneficial amount of omega three fatty acids (DHA)
  • It is not uncommon for some pregnant women to need additional 1 tablet of Iron plus C can be added providing an additional 18 mg of Iron and 60 mg of Vitamin C

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 Obstetrician, who may wish to suggest an addition 1-2 B Complex and Osteomatrix as stated above if approved for you.

Additional Health & Nutrition Recommendations

I take everything that Shaklee recommends above with a few additional products:

Shaklee 180 meal smoothie provides a mother and her growing fetus with an additional 270 calories, 24 grams of high quality protein and 6 grams of fiber. I eat one for breakfast every morning with my Shaklee prenatal supplements.

Shaklee 180 Energy Tea for even more energy. I asked my doctor and he said  that 1-2 teas a day was just fine. I love drinking a tea for a boost of energy after a not-so-good night’s sleep {I swear I wake up every hour to visit the bathroom these days}.

Get Clean Non-Toxic Cleaners and Natural Laundry Proudcts because you should NOT be cleaning with toxic cleaners.  If you haven’t switched to natural cleaners now, 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 {and especially} your what goes on your skin. Anything you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body…where your baby is. Yep, it’s important!

Natural Daily Care like toothpaste, deodorant, lotions, etc. because I believe you should remove all toxins.
