What is a Pregnancy Prebiotic?

Inside your gut are trillions of living bacteria, which have an important role to play in both your own health and your baby’s health.

Because these gut bugs are living organisms, they need to eat. Their food is called prebiotics. Prebiotics consist of natural insoluble fibres that come from your food. The challenge is that those foods are often complicated to find, buy or cook.

We know that you’re busy, and your time is precious! So we’ve made it easy for you to get the exact combination of fibres you need, by combining them into an easy-to-use powder. This powder contains every prebiotic fibre available that has been approved for use during pregnancy.

8 prebiotics in 1 supplement!

Our Pregnancy Prebiotic powder contains the following 8 different prebiotics:

  • Arabinan
  • Beta-Glucan
  • FOS
  • Galactan
  • GOS
  • IMO
  • Pectin
  • Xyloglucan

For just £2.85 per day, you can give your gut bugs the exact complex mix of fibres they require for thriving good health. Portable, straightforward and comprehensive care for your microbiome. Just mix 10g per day into some water and drink up – job done!

How will a Pregnancy Prebiotic Help Me?

Pregnancy is the time when your gut health is more important than ever before. Your own health before, during, and after pregnancy is crucial in determining the ultimate health outcome of your newborn, influencing your baby’s immune system, mental function, skin, heart and muscle development and overall well being.

Your baby will inherit his or her gut microbiome from you, so this is the perfect time to get your internal ecosystem in the best possible shape! Over time, your gut microbiome is constantly being attacked by sugar, stress, antibiotics and environmental toxins that kill off strains and impact the diversity of your entire gut system.

The best way to restore full gut diversity is to take a powerful probiotic that will repopulate your gut bacteria, and also take a prebiotic that will feed those good gut bugs.
