drink your prenatals {Premama}

Premama prenatal drinkI was chosen to take the “Premama Challenge” but to me, the real challenge was what I was doing before.  Prenatals are a must-take, we know that, but sometimes they hinder more than they help.  This was the case for me.  Without fail, 20 minutes after I take a regular, prescribed horse-pill prenatal, the nausea rushes over me like a tidal wave, ending in violent vomit. Every.  Day.

The counter-productivity is laughable — taking a vitamin only to lose all of the vitamins I have previously consumed in natural foods.  It got to a point that my OB-GYN advised I actually stop taking my prenatals and just focus on taking in a ghastly amount of foods from the earth (and a couple specific supplements).  And while this is a good practice to be in, I lost that sense of well-being and I fretted over my nutritional intake every day.  Then, it happened.  Sweet peace of mind was delivered to me in the form of Premama.

Premama is a 100% natural powder prenatal complete with key nutrients including DHA, Folic Acid, and Iron.  Instead of causing nausea, this product actually prevents and soothes it with its added ginger, Vitamin B6 and Magnesium. Being anemic, I take an iron supplement but I was still curious when comparing nutritional labels as to why Premama has a lower does of iron in it.  Turns out that while traditional prenatals have 27mg of iron in them (as opposed to Premama’s 10mg) only 15% of that is actually absorbed by the body.  The rest of that iron goes unused but leads to constipation and nausea.  With Premama’s 10mg of easily absorbed iron, you are only getting what your body will use, no excess.  Now that is a fun fact.

So now I begin my Premama journey.  I will be giving an update towards the end of my 30 day challenge, so keep your eyes peeled for that. I’m expecting big things from you, Premama.  Feel free to jump on my journey and purchase your own 30 day supply of drinkable prenatals for $25.  I have a feeling this product will not disappoint.
