This pregnancy bundle consists of the Mom to Be + Revive. The Mom to Be is our unique pregnancy supplement with premium ingredients. The Revive is our green angel. Both are safe to use during your pregnancy and/or breastfeeding.
You want the best for your unborn child. And as an expectant mother, you want to prepare your body in the best way possible. You have very specific needs when it comes to vitamins and minerals, for yourself and the baby. Our unique pregnancy supplement MOM TO BE with premium ingredients is made with these needs in mind, and together with the little green angel REVIVE, you will upgrade your regular nutrition regimen with necessities for both mom and baby..
There is no need to take extra folic acid in addition to Mom to Be. Mom to Be contains the best form of folic acid, namely folate. This is a direct active form, which your body does not need to convert first.
There is no soy in Mom to Be. There may be “traces of soy” in it, which are virtually negligible, but the Commodities Act states that all allergens used in the manufacturing process of supplements must also be included in the list of ingredients.
Unfortunately, this means that many supplements have an allergen listed on their packaging even though they contain less than a microgram of it. This is also the case with soy. In other words, only if you are extremely allergic to soy should you avoid it. Spoiler alert: in mid-2021 the new Mom to Be will be released, without soy.
There are two types of vitamin A
1. Beta-carotene (in SUPS).
2. Vitamin A (not recommended to take too much of during pregnancy)
We specifically chose beta-carotene (you can also find this in colorful fruits and vegetables) this is a very nice provitamin, which is converted in the body to required vitamin A and is essential for healthy nails, skin, hair growth) This beta-carotene does not “stack” as much as normal Vitamin A, so it is 100% safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We chose provitamin A/beta-carotene because there is a proven increased need for it during pregnancy. “Ordinary” vitamin A is not necessarily completely discouraged during pregnancy. There is only a somewhat lower Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) during pregnancy. And that’s why it is recommended to avoid products with a high vitamin A (such as liverwurst), so you do not exceed the maximum. And that’s why (regular) vitamin A has got a somewhat negative image during pregnancy. This form is NOT included in Mom to Be.
We had to choose between so many incredible options when formulating all of our supplements. Unfortunately, there is only “room” for a selection of these. The expectant mother has certain specific needs due to her pregnancy, and that has been our starting point. Of course, vitamin C is a great and very important vitamin, which can also be taken very easily as an isolated vitamin, just like magnesium. That means, that you don’t take it in a multi, but (in high doses) in a separate capsule/pill. So the effectiveness is again stronger than in a multi. With our multi, you have a very nice range of vitamins and minerals for the 9 months, which may be supplemented on a personal level, as desired.
It contains a special form of folate (B11), which specifically has the claim that it supports the growth of the baby. And the other ingredients are great supplements for both you and your baby. It is an outdated notion that B11 would not need to be taken after 3 months. It is proven effective for the development of the unborn child, and from orthomolecular teachings is advised to take 200% throughout pregnancy.
Regarding the green tea extract combined with pregnancy & caffeine. In the REVIVE there are only the antioxidants of green tea, these antioxidants are extracted per capsule so there is too little caffeine in them to speak of a caffeine intake.
So you can just use them during your pregnancy, this is no problem at all.
The revive contains a whole bunch of antioxidants. And these have an extra powerful effect at night, during your natural recovery process, because there is no interference from other absorption processes. Also if you take it during the day you will benefit a lot. But just before going to sleep it can have a more powerful effect. Try it for a month and let us know!
