Pregnancy is a wonderful period in a woman’s life as she counts down to the moment of the birth of a miracle. Maintaining health throughout pregnancy is vital for both mother and foetus. So, a balanced, nutritious diet is imperative during pregnancy. Spirulina is ideal for pregnancy and lactation, thanks to the presence of folic acid and iron. Pregnancy and lactation are important periods in terms of food – diet, as the diet can affect the health of the mother, the unborn child and its future development. This is why it is essential to make all the nutrients that both the mother and the baby need optimal. Spirulina containing a balanced pool of proteins, vitamins and minerals can be a support during pregnancy and lactation.
Spirulina is a safe source of nutrients for pregnant women and ideal for increasing iron levels (absorbable iron and bio-active vitamin B12 for good red blood cell formation and optimal oxygenation of the foetus). Spirulina also contains complete and well balanced protein for optimal foetal development and vitamins K1 and K2 for improved blood clotting and strong bones, respectively. Spirulina is an extremely rich source of carotenoid antioxidants such as beta carotene (provitamin A) and zeaxanthin. Spirulina is nature’s richest whole food source of the important omega-6- fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that contributes to women’s health.
