Why should women take prebiotics and probiotics during pregnancy?
The vision of a pregnant woman is beautiful, ethereal, glowing, and floating on a cloud of bliss. Unfortunately for many women, this description is not reality and often a helping hand is needed to alleviate common issues such as constipation, heartburn, digestive issues, and postnatal depression and anxiety.
Taking prebiotic and probiotics during pregnancy can promote a healthy digestive system by boosting immune function and suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria and increasing resistance to some infections. Prebiotics and probiotics are also able to strengthen the immune system and treat urinary tract infections.
In 2020 a review* that included 18 randomised control trials discovered that the general length of pregnancy was significantly longer in women who were taking a probiotic supplement when compared to those who were provided a placebo. The same review also found that women taking a probiotic during pregnancy significantly reduced the risk of eczema to themselves and their baby once born.
Healthy Natural Pregnancy With Probiotics and Prebiotics
Pregnant women are at a higher risk of developing and experiencing digestive issues such as indigestion, heartburn, and constipation due to pregnancy hormones. A probiotic such as Alliaus’ Healthy Natural Pregnancy With Probiotics and Prebiotics uses patented HN001 and HN019 (12 Billion CFU for each sachet), which work together to support and maintain a healthy microbiome, immune system, and digestive system while improving the overall maternal health during pregnancy.
The Healthy Natural Pregnancy With Probiotics and Prebiotics also has positive effects after birth for both the mother and child through reducing the occurrence of infant eczema and allergies and assisting in reducing the occurrence of postpartum systems of depression and anxiety.
