You’re thrilled beyond belief about that bun in your oven, but what’s going on with your bowels? Truth be told, constipation may affect half of all women at some point in their pregnancy. Thankfully, you don’t need to suffer. Regular Girl helps kick occasional constipation, gas and bloating to the curb so you can enjoy this amazing journey. Regular Girl’s extraordinary fiber and prebiotic blend also helps guard against other pregnancy-related conditions. So, you can return to decorating the nursery knowing that you’re providing the best for you and your baby.
Constipation and pregnancy
Hormonal changes and prenatal vitamins are blamed for the constipation, gas and bloating experienced during pregnancy, especially the first trimester. Many doctors and nutritionists advise against using laxatives. Increasing your fluid and fiber intake helps, but select your fiber supplement carefully. Some can cause gas, cramping and bloating. Use Regular Girl. It’s uniquely gentle fiber soothes constipation without uncomfortable side effects.
Fiber supplements affect mineral absorption
Some gel-forming fiber supplements – such as those made with pectins, cellulose and inulin – may reduce the absorption of calcium, zinc, iron and other important minerals. Sunfiber’s galactomannan doesn’t have this effect. In fact, it has been clinically shown to increase absorption of minerals that are so essential during pregnancy.
Fiber supplements and gestational diabetes
The percentage of women diagnosed with gestational diabetes – high blood glucose levels during pregnancy – is increasing. It can lead to preterm birth, excessive birth weight and diabetes later in life for both mom and baby. Regular Girl helps manage blood glucose levels. Studies show consuming our fiber with a meal lowers the food’s glycemic index.
Regular Girl is a breeze to add your daily routine, even if when you’re feeling a little green. Unlike supplements which turn gloppy in water, Regular Girl dissolves readily. Add it to your water, smoothie or juice. It won’t change the color, odor, taste or consistency.
