No matter where you are in your journey to become a mother, it's important to feel confident that you and your baby are getting the key nutrients needed to thrive. Staying on top of the latest research and creating a comprehensive plan however, can be overwhelming. The Prenatal Protocol is designed to take the guesswork out of each phase of pregnancy. From pre and peri to postnatal care, this protocol has been created by Dr. Cabral to support your evolving nutritional needs.
Going back thousands of years in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practice there has always been a specific plan for pre, peri, and postnatal care. The prenatal plan focuses on preparing the woman's body for conception through a healthy diet and detoxification. Next, the perinatal prescription consists of healthy living, healthy eating, and other recommendations for child development during pregnancy. Finally, detailed postnatal recommendations are given to ensure the mother begins to rebuild her vital reserves and have enough nutrients for her young baby. Since these are all crucial periods to optimize health and nutrition, both for mother and baby, it only makes sense to follow a specific protocol that provides support throughout. Research has shown that healthy pregnancies begin with good nutrition during preconception. Furthermore, overall nutritional needs increase during pregnancy and after (during breastfeeding) as well, making supplementation essential.
You know how important it is to fuel your body on a daily basis with the nutrients it needs to thrive. The problem is, even if you're eating healthy, it's nearly impossible to achieve optimal nutrition through food alone (even organic). This is why the EquiLife Daily Nutritional Support was formulated by Dr. Cabral. It is a vegan, hypoallergenic protein powder, fortified with a wide range of activated vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, detox co-factors, and electrolytes, making it a one-stop-shop to fill the nutritional gaps in your diet.
Most iron supplements provide metallic forms that can oxidize and introduce free radicals. Iron Response is a robust supplement derived completely from food.

Activated Folate offers the important vitamin folate in a methylated formulation for enhanced bioavailability. This formula, calcium 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, is the formula found in foods and therefore more easily absorbed and processed in the body. Most other supplements utilize folic acid, which requires the body to convert into vitamin b9 in the liver. Activated Folate provides the most efficient delivery for this essential vitamin necessary for a balanced diet.
