Nutritional Support for Pregnancy
Zinc helps to prevent birth defects and is essential for proper development of the foetus.  It also helps to prevent stretch marks.  Soil deficiencies have reduced zinc levels available in our food supply, Zinc is also removed by food processing.   Lack of Zinc in pregnancy can lead to poor development of the foetus, or in severe deficiency to birth defects.   All pregnant and nursing mothers would do well to take a 15 mg zinc tablet on retiring.  Zinc performs over 300 enzymatic functions in the body and plays a role in virtually all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. Your body cannot store zinc but has a rapid turnover rate, which is why you need to keep supplies up.   We supply a food state Zinc supplement, Food State Nutrients have been tested by independent laboratories who found that they are significantly better absorbed, longer retained and better used than standard chemical supplements.
For broad nutritional support during pregnancy we recommend the following two products.
Capra Mineral Whey is 100% natural, mineral-rich, goat’s milk whey powder. Goat’s milk is the most widely consumed milk in the world. Goat’s milk is most like human milk in composition. Mt. Capra goats are not fed any pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, or growth hormones.  Capra Mineral Whey is minimally processed to insure it’s original composition.  It contains more than 20 naturally occurring minerals in a highly complex whole food form which our bodies recognize and utilize with ease, a highly concentrated, alkaline, mineral food.  Just 1 ounce of this goat whey powder has the nutritional equivalent of 25 ounces of  fresh goats milk.
A body of recent research has highlighted the role of essential fatty acids in the development of the foetus, Hemp Oil is natures most balanced oil for human nutrition (3:1 LA to LNA ratio) and is easily digestible; in fact this oil could provide all of our Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) requirements for life, due to the balanced 80% EFA content of the oil.
Powdered Barley Grass Juice is a nutritious, alkaline powder made from young barley grass juice. Young barley grass contains perhaps the most balanced nutrient profile of all green plants with a natural balance and abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, active enzymes, and chlorophyll, it is an exceptional superfood. Daily consumption of powdered barley grass juice will help provide your body with essential nutrients that promote health and vitality. After taking powdered barley grass juice daily for as little as one week, many people report an increase in energy, better looking hair, skin, and nails, and increased regularity – all signs of good nutrition.
Wild Yam can be helpful in latter stages of pregnancy, but please note that as it is traditionally used as a contraceptive, we take the view that it should not be used during the early stages of pregnancy.  It helps to maintain a balance of hormones in the body. Yam contains plant hormone precursors which help in the production and balancing of progesterone and oestrogen.  It supplies nutrients, which rapidly enable our endocrine glands to produce a complex array of hormones.  If we are in a state of hormonal adequacy and balance, health will follow / be maintained.
Nartural Remedies for Morning Sickness
The best natural remedy we know of for morning sickness is Green Clay a useful - a natural remedy that helps avoid morning sickness and promotes the health of the foetus helping to produce a healthy baby.
