Why Supplement During Your Reproductive Journey?
- May 25, 2021
Let’s be real. Life is hectic. Busy. You’ve got a million and one things to do and, some days, a quick microwave meal or to-go dinner is all your energy levels will allow.
Most of us aren’t getting the nutrition we need. Usually, that’s not the end of the world, but when you’re supporting and growing a new life in your belly, nutrition becomes a priority. You want to give your baby a good start to life, for him or her to be born strong, healthy, and with exceptional immunity.
Or maybe you’re trying to conceive. Nutrition isn’t just important for pregnancy, it’s a key factor in fertility.
The message is clear: supplementing to improve nutrition is extremely important during all stages of your reproductive journey.
But don’t take our word for it. Let’s look at the science.
Nutrition and Its Role in Fertility:
Eating a healthy, balanced diet and taking the proper supplements improves fertility for both men and women. There are studies about it.
In a recent study conducted by Schaefer E (2019), it was found that fertility has declined globally to unprecedented low levels. According to the CDC, in the United States, 10.9% of women aged 15 to 44 have impaired fertility. That’s a lot.
Women in the United States just aren’t being told they need to supplement. But worldwide, women of reproductive age are recommended nutrient supplementation throughout all stages of the pregnancy journey. Why? To reduce their risk of a difficult pregnancy and their baby having nutrient deficiencies.
The bottom line: supplementing will help you conceive and lower your chances of an adverse pregnancy.
Why You Should be Concerned About Protein:
That’s what we’re focused on. Our dietary supplements are filled with additional protein to support both mother and baby throughout the reproductive stages.
Best of all, our protein powder uses natural, plant-based proteins including pea and rice proteins. One of the biggest reasons health professionals are advocating plant protein during pregnancy is that animal protein has to be cooked before consumption to ensure safety. A plant-based alternative provides moms with a healthy, simple option.
Nisus Life Journey protein powder is the perfect protein supplement for mother and baby.
