During pregnancy, it’s natural to have an increased demand for essential nutrients that aren’t always found in the regular milk that you drink or everyday food that you eat. In order to fight Maternal Nutrient Deficiency, expecting moms should have a daily intake of nutrients such as:
- Folic Acid
- DHA, GA, SA
- Probiotics and Prebiotics such as Inulin and DR10
All variants and flavors of Anmum Maternal Milk contain this complete nutrition to support a baby’s overall growth and development during the 9 months of pregnancy.
Anmum also has a No Added Sugar variant that is best for women who worry about being overweight or are concerned about Gestational Diabetes Mellitus or GDM. It is a condition in which glucose builds up in the blood instead of being absorbed by the cells during pregnancy. In the Philippines, around 24% of pregnant women tested have been diagnosed with GDM.
This can be managed and addressed with Anmum’s No Added Sugar variant, which is specially formulated to have no added sugar while still proving the complete nutrition a pregnant woman needs for herself and her baby. It is also low in calories and low in carbohydrates, so that even when you satisfy your cravings or paglilihi, you won’t have any unnecessary worries with your prenatal milk.
It is also best for women who need to manage their blood sugar levels in order to prevent complications and pregnancy risks, such as:
- Excessive Weight Gain
- High Blood Sugar
- Metabolic issues such as obesity, dyslipidimia, hypertension, and abnormal glucose metabolism
- Pre-term birth
The Anmum No Added Sugar variant, paired with a carefully planned diet, the appropriate amount of exercise, regularly monitoring glucose or sugar levels, and maintaining a healthy pregnancy weight, will go a long way in easing and assuaging the fears and worries regarding GDM.
By choosing the right maternal milk for their type of pregnancy, on top of preparing well-planned and balanced meals, expecting mommies can be confident in the health and development of their growing baby.
