For pregnant women, it helps get rid of nausea since there is ginger in it. And we all know that morning sickness isn't just mornings. I actually love drinking it with grape juice, but have had it with apple juice too.
You don't have to be pregnant to take this. If your taking a daily multivitamin, you can take this instead. Breastfeeding moms can benefit just as much.
Premama is 100% natural and if your counting calories, only has 6 of them. It has everything a pregnant or breastfeeding mama could need, want and hope for. It has the recommended Folic Acid, Iron and DHA. It also helps your digestive system so that way you can spend less time in the bathroom (why practice pushing now?).
I think its great that you can take it with you on the go. If you plan to be out around the time you would normally take it, you can throw it in your purse, and go.
The only downfall - its not available by Rx. But you can buy it online (See below for discount).
Now, you may ask is it FDA approved, and here is what their website states:
"Premama and many other prenatal supplements are over-the-counter (OTC). They fall under the 'supplement' category and do not require FDA approval. Facilities at which Premama is produced and packaged are FDA-approved for the nutrients they handle, their cleanliness, and their conduct. They are also USP Verified."
There are traces of milk and soybean. But I am lactose intolerant and I was fine. There are only trace amounts, so unless your severely allergic, you should be fine. Premama is free of nuts, gluten, egg, fish, shellfish, sulfite and tree nut. Also note, they are certified Kosher pareve by the OU, and there is no BPA in the packaging.
Think you want to order? Well, if you order online at www.DrinkPremama.com and use code JENNIFER2012 you will get a 10% discount on your order.
Alternativly, if you live in an area where they are sold locally (hopefully soon it will be everywhere!), you can buy it in person. I don't think you get a discount that way though. To check out where you can buy locally, visit their list of retailers.
Do you take Premama? Don't you just love it!?
