Nutrition is crucial for women at all stages of your journey. Whether you're trying to conceive, currently pregnant or have just given birth, what you put into your body is very important. Whilst eating a healthy and balanced diet is recommended, it is not always easy with the strains of nausea, cravings and just generally needing beige food.
The NHS advise that pregnant women take folic acid both whilst they are trying to conceive and during their first trimester (the first 12 weeks) to help prevent birth defects such as spina bifda. There are also many other vitamins and superfoods, which can support the development of the baby and help the expecting mother to sleep better, have more energy and experience less nausea (amongst many more).
However, it can be a pain to choke back multiple vitamins each day, especially in the midst of morning sickness. Several multi-vitamins are available which are designed for expecting mums, but these can often contain bulking agents, are difficult to swallow and are not really personalised to the end user.
Nourished is a brand new concept, which launched exclusively in the UK in October 2019, that offers the world’s first truly personalised nutrition product. Nourished have developed a patented 3D printing technology which allows them to combine 7 different, high impact active ingredients into delicious, gummy stacks.
Consumers can either complete a short lifestyle questionnaire at www.get-nourished.com where they will receive a recommendation of vitamins and superfoods based on their lifestyle and goals, or select their own preferences.
Nourished then 3D prints their selection on demand using the highest quality ingredients and pack their Nourishments into unique plastic free packaging. Monthly orders are then dispatched directly to the customer’s door with less waste, hassle and cost than purchasing all the active ingredients separately.
Premium nutrition for your pregnancy
Nourished offer a wide range of 28 active ingredients, all of which are extensively researched and obtained from ethical and wholefood sources. All the ingredients are also sugar free, free from all major allergens and certified by the Vegan Society.
Many of the vitamins, minerals and superfoods which Nourished have chosen for their range, have been selected for their scientific research and benefits for supporting both the body and bump during pregnancy.
Ginger has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years and is widely known to help reduce nausea, headaches and inflammation; all of which are common side effects of pregnancy.
Milk thistle extract is a unique superfood which has extremely powerful benefits for expecting mums, and is almost impossible to incorporate into a healthy diet. Studies have shown that milk thistle can help to boost breast milk by making more of the hormone prolactin which produces milk.
By combining these hero active ingredients into a Nourished stack, along with four other high impact active ingredients suited for your lifestyle and goals; you can help your body to feel its best during pregnancy and give your baby the best start in life.
Each Nourished stack is 3D printed on demand, to give you the highest efficacy of the active ingredients, which in turn means you feel the highest impact from them. By encapsulating your selection into a vegan pectin gel, Nourished also ensures up to 70% more absorption than a standard pill, as it is consumed as a gummy and digested into the body much more quickly and effectively.
Nourished are passionate about impactful, personalised nutrition. They believe that everyone is unique and that if anything on Earth should be customised, it should be our health and wellness.
