#1 Purple Essential Pregnancy Smoothie

Purple Essential Pregnancy Smoothie, rich in folic acid.

Good for

A smoothie with high contents of folic acid and vitamin K.

Folic acid is the pregnancy nutrient.

It protects your baby’s brain, keeping it healthy and boosting its development. It helps protect your baby from cleft birth and palate, premature birth, miscarriage, and low birth weight!

Vitamin K is essential for a healthy blood clotting, particularly important for you and your baby during labor.

It’s so important that it’s common for newborn babies to get a vitamin K injection to prevent the risks of a deficiency -which is rare.

Additionally, vitamin K promotes healthy bone development and protein formation in your baby’s liver.
