Grazia loves OptiBac Probiotics for new mums
It appears that we have become quite popular with the glossies recently. And we are of course super chuffed to be mentioned in Grazia magazine this month, this time as a brand of probiotics for pregnant women and new mums to take.
Grazia underlines the importance of gut health for both pregnant women and new mums. It talks about how a healthy balance of bacteria is essential for the absorption of vitamins and minerals, which in turn helps combat fatigue and boost immunity. This is especially important when pregnant and you are absorbing nutrients for two! They also mention how taking probiotics when breastfeeding can help the baby digest milk, as well as supporting the mother’s health when breastfeeding.
They have recommended our product ‘For women’ which of course we are delighted about. In fact, it might be worth mentioning that our ‘For babies & children’, which has been clinically trialled in children, might be even more beneficial to take when pregnant or breastfeeding. Mums can take this before birth and when breastfeeding, and it’s suitable for newborns as well. You can read more about this here. Nutritional therapist Jo has also written a blog post on Beneficial bacteria found in breast milk.
However, ‘For women’, the most researched probiotic for women’s intimate health, may be a very useful probiotic for some pregnant ladies. The particular strains of bacteria in this product have been shown in clinical trials to reach the women’s intimate area, so we are delighted with Grazia’s recommendation.
