Trying for a baby? These pill-free oral vitamin sprays are a game-changer
Trying for, growing and birthing a baby is a big job for a woman's body – as is early motherhood.
So needless to say, making sure we are staying healthy and getting our nutritional needs met is more important than ever during this period in our lives.
Luckily, nutritional therapist, best-selling cookery writer, chef and mother, Madeleine Shaw, has teamed up with natural health brand BetterYou to develop a range of oral sprays that will support every stage of motherhood, from conception and pregnancy, to getting your glow back postpartum.
And the best bit? The spray bit means there are no pills involved!
Madeleine Shaw x BetterYou’s unique oral spray provides nutrients in micro-sized droplets. All you do is spray directly into the soft tissue of the mouth, which research shows is the most effective area of absorption.
The spray delivers an active ingredient directly into the bloodstream, absorbing quickly and providing fast nutrient uptake – all without swallowing a single pill.
Developed alongside the Pharmacy and Pharmacology Research Team at Cardiff University, BetterYou specialises in the supplementation of nutrients we tend to lack due to modern diets and lifestyles.
We love how every product is formulated for maximum nutrient delivery and uptake in the body, understanding that traditional tablets and capsules rely upon a digestive process that has evolved exclusively for food intake, and absorption cannot be guaranteed for everyone.
The dramatic increase in digestive malabsorption issues such as IBS, Crohn’s and coeliac disease has also meant that effective alternative delivery mechanism has become essential.
Housed in packaging derived from ethanol collected from sugarcane plants, the Madeleine Shaw range is contained in bottles made from a combination of carbon negative, plant-based plastic verified by the Carbon Trust, and post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR).
Even better? In line with BetterYou and Madeleine’s green values, the entire range is vegetarian-friendly, palm oil and palm oil derivative-free and is contained in fully recyclable packaging, that once clean and dry can be put into your household plastic recycling.
Sounds great? They really are.
