Questions about eaZZZe The Pain!™
Insomnia is a condition described by difficulty falling asleep and remaining asleep. Transient insomnia occurs when symptoms last a few days to a few weeks. Acute (short-term) insomnia is when symptoms last for several weeks. Chronic insomnia is sleeplessness that lasts for months and years.
There are several reasons insomnia may occur during pregnancy including: increase in the size of the abdomen, heartburn, back pains, frequent urination, anxiety, vivid dreams, back pains and hormonal changes, all on top of anxiety.
Sleep is important during pregnancy because it takes a lot of energy for a baby to grow and develop. A pregnant woman’s heart works harder to pump the blood through her body and the baby’s body. Kidneys also work harder to rid waste.

During pregnancy and nursing , the amount of protein your body needs increases- many women find it challenging to get all the protein required. Providing 7 grams of protein helps to reach the recommended goal of 70 g per day.
For pregnant women, dietary fiber is an especially beneficial component of a balanced diet. A pregnant woman should be getting about 25 grams of dietary fiber per day. Adding dietary fiber to your diet will decrease constipation and lower blood pressure. Increasing your dietary fiber during the first trimester may also reduce pregnancy risks. A report in the American Journal of Hypertension found that by increasing the amount of fiber in your diet during early pregnancy, the risk of preeclampsia (a potentially fatal condition caused by elevated blood pressure) is reduced.

Questions about Tame The Flame!™
Heartburn (acid indigestion) is an irritation of the esophagus that is caused by stomach acid. This can create a burning discomfort in the upper abdomen or below the breast bone.
Classic heartburn symptoms include: a burning sensation that starts at the upper stomach or lower breastbone and progresses upward. Heartburn may occur after a meal or when bending over.
During pregnancy, the placenta produces the hormone progesterone, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the uterus. Progesterone also relaxes the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach. As a result, gastric acids seep back up and cause an unpleasant burning sensation. Progesterone also slows down the wavelike contractions of the esophagus and intestines, making digestion slower. Later in pregnancy, as the baby grows, the abdominal cavity becomes crowded and pushes the stomach acids back up into the esophagus. Many women start experiencing heartburn and other gastrointestinal discomforts in the second half of pregnancy.
Yes, you should always discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

Questions about Be Well Rounded!™
Even if you eat a well balanced diet, most doctors recommend a prenatal vitamin to ensure you receive enough folic acid and iron. Folic Acid helps protect the baby from birth defects. Extra iron is needed during pregnancy to protect you from anemia and help the baby grow properly. Other vitamins are important as well such as calcium and vitamin D. Be Well Rounded!™ is meant to be a complement to eating a healthy diet, eating healthy is still very important.
During pregnancy your body needs extra vitamins and nutrients that are not in (or not in at a high enough level) a regular multi-vitamin. We recommend using a pre-natal vitamin prior to, during and post pregnancy.
Having a separate DHA supplement allows for a more stable and consistent product to ensure all the vitamins and minerals are of the highest quality. Having the ingredients combined with the vitamin may degrade the potency of the vitamins and minerals.

Be Well Rounded!™ is easier to swallow, allows for easier absorption and is better tolerated than other pre-natal vitamins. Be Well Rounded! contains Ferrochel® chelated iron, which is easier on the stomach, does not interact with other nutrients and is safer than inorganic iron supplements such as ferrous sulfate. The DHA supplement has enteric coating, which allows for more absorption into your system and eliminates the fish burp.
Taking folic acid, a B vitamin, before and during pregnancy is important to prevent birth defects of your baby’s brain and spinal cord. Your growing baby needs calcium to build strong bones and teeth, a healthy heart, nerves and muscles. If you do not get enough calcium while you are pregnant, the baby will take it from your bones, which may impair your own health later on. Iron is essential for making the protein (hemoglobin) in red blood cells that carry oxygen to other cells. During pregnancy, the amount of blood in your body increases (to 50% more than usual) – more iron is needed to make more hemoglobin. Iron deficiency during pregnancy can lead to preterm delivery.
DHA is short for docosahexaenoic acid, a fatty acid found in the meat of cold-water fish, whale and seal blubber. DHA is used during pregnancy to help promote better mental development of the fetus.

In their ordinary form, minerals are difficult for the body to absorb through the intestine. The process of chelation does the stomach’s work in advance by producing low molecular weight mineral compounds in which the minerals are bound to amino acids to produce natural organic chelates that can pass easily through the intestinal wall. It reduces gastro upset and nausea.
Natural coatings can be made from plant-sourced ingredients such as tree fibers and algae and provides a coating over the soft gel. Enteric coating provides an increased absorption of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and reduces the side effects, i.e, the fish burp and reduces instance of gastric upset.
