Protein for pregnancy
Written By Go Vita
Pregnancy is a beautiful, life-changing event. It’s a time of rapid growth and development for both mother and baby and there are so many extra nutrients your body needs to support this change. During this special time, we understand it can definitely be overwhelming with all the information available to think about trying to reach each and every level required.
Amazonia have just announced a new baby of their own – Amazonia Protein Pregnancy Plus, especially for Mums and Bubs.
See what they have to say about it below!
We receive constant feedback from mamas asking if our proteins are suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding and we are proud that most of our Raw range is definitely suitable to be taken during this time. However, it got us thinking, how about we design a protein specifically formulated to be suitable for mamas during conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Protein is essential for supporting this growth and is required for the building of maternal and fetal tissues. It is also worth noting that protein requirements during pregnancy increase by 30% and are particularly important during the last two trimesters as this is when the most growing happens!
As per our values, we made it our mission to create a certified organic, plant-based and non-synthetic protein that is suitable to be taken during this time with added wholefood vitamins and minerals to provide all those extra essential nutrients! After over 9 months in R&D, this month we have had a baby of our own! An exciting addition to our Amazonia Raw Protein and Supplement range, we created the most nourishing, delicious, smooth and sweet formula; Amazonia Protein Pregnancy Plus, especially for Mums and Bubs.
We’ve done the hard work for you. Including everything you need, in an easy to consume, delicious formula. Free from gluten, added sugar, dairy, lactose, additives, preservatives, GMOs & synthetics so you don’t need to spend time stressing about what you’re putting into your body.
Amazonia Raw Protein Pregnancy Plus is also made up of organic golden pea protein, which is soaked to activate the natural sprouting process which decreases the anti-nutrients such as phytic acid, that may inhibit the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the protein powder. Resulting in high quality, non-synthetic source of plant protein that is gentle on the digestive system and easy to absorb. It is a premium blend of organic sprouted and fermented plant protein designed to support daily protein intake, 14 wholefood vitamins and minerals naturally sourced from fruit and vegetables to support you during this time – we’ve popped in lucuma, cocoa, spinach, broccoli, carrot, beetroot, tomato, shiitake mushroom, apple, cranberry, cherry, orange, blueberry and strawberry!
When having a serve of Amazonia Raw Protein Pregnancy Plus you will be getting folate to support maternal tissue growth, 50% RDI naturally occurring iron, zinc to support fertility and reproduction, B vitamins to support hormone regulation, energy and immunity as well as ginger and essential dietary fibre!
Our newest addition to our Raw Protein range comes in two delicious flavours – rich chocolate and smooth vanilla. Its smooth, silky texture makes it easy to mix simply with water! Or if you wish, liquid of your choice, smoothies, bowls and even protein balls!
Safe to use right through conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding – the perfect, nourishing treat. When choosing Raw you know you are getting nature’s best nutrients the way nature intended to support you and baby during this precious time and together we can Shine Brighter for many generations to come – because you’re worth it.
