Handling Constipation During Pregnancy
Constipation during pregnancy is a problem that needs to be solved. Toxins that should be eliminated can re-enter the body and toxins needing to be cleared are not able to get out at the proper rate. Such toxic excess can, in some cases, cross the placenta and interfere with your baby's health. Minimally, it can make you tired and irritable -- a definite form of energy-sapping stress.
During pregnancy the best basic approach is to have extra fiber to help provide stool bulk and keep your bowels moving. One bowel movement per day, hopefully without any straining, is the minimum. Our Fiber Helper™ is a combination of three different forms of soluble fiber, without any sweeteners. It is easy to mix and has a naturally pleasant taste. If needed, small amounts of natural bowel stimulants can be used, but not high doses that may trigger digestive or uterine cramping. Our best supplement for this purpose is Motility Helper™, taking 1-2 capsules at bed.*
Fiber Helper™provides bulk that absorbs toxic waste in the GI tract, helping to eliminate waste products more efficiently and keep your bowels moving. Sluggish bowels are a problem for pregnancy, as toxins simply re-enter the general circulation and make you feel fatigued and irritable.*139 525 grams $41.00 $30.7525% off!
Can be used, as needed, to help keep sluggish bowels moving during pregnancy. A low dose is recommended during pregnancy, 1-2 capsules per day. During pregnancy, always work with dietary fiber and other strategies as your foundation. The use of mild laxatives in lower amounts is quite safe and far better for you than being constipated.*73 100 capsules $28.00 $21.0025% off!
