Collagen PLUS Valuable Vitamins and Minerals for Mom and Baby
The foundation of Zammex Nutrition’s Mamagen: Collagen Complex is built on our high-quality Multi-Collagen Protein. This product features Type I, II, III, V and X collagen all of which are naturally sourced and 100% pure. The benefits of supplementing collagen are well-documented in our “Ultimate Guide” on our website. With Mamagen, we’ve focused on some direct issues related to the phases of motherhood and how collagen supplementation may help. Zammex has taken the product a step further by adding small dosages of other vitamins and minerals that will help fortify the health of mom and her baby. As with all our literature on Mamagen, we need to ensure that mom-to-be, pregnant women and postpartum mothers are following their doctor recommended regimen of diet and supplements. Mamagen is not designed to replace a prenatal vitamin, it is built to help support and provide extra benefits outside of the Multi Collagen in each capsule.
What else is in Mamagen that can benefit women?
Zammex Nutrition is the only collagen capsule on the market that includes the following ingredients: Folic Acid, DHA, Iron, Vitamin C and Elderberry. These ingredients are included to not only support the health of mom but also the development of baby as well. As mentioned above, even though women in all phases of motherhood (preconception, pregnancy and postpartum) should be following their doctor’s regimen strictly it’s very important to understand why these vitamins and minerals are included in Mamagen and the benefits they offer.
Folic Acid (Folate) – Studies have shown that taking Folic Acid prior to conception and during pregnancy greatly reduces the risk neural tube defects in the baby such as spina bifida and anencephaly. The use of Folic Acid should not stop around the early phases of motherhood as it also has shown to help women in the reduction of blood pressure and prevention of hypertension. Most importantly, Folic Acid benefits the little one, but it also benefits mom and should be taken at adequate levels (consult your physician) daily.
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) – DHA is essential for the growth and functional development of the brain of infants. It is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults. It is vitally important to include enough DHA in your diet and supplement regimen to ensure baby’s learning ability is maximized and there are no deficits. As an adult, the supplementation of DHA also plays a vital role preventing cognitive decline. It also plays a vital role is supporting cardiovascular health. DHA is a must for both men and women of all ages as its benefits extend much further beyond the brain development of your little one.
Iron – Iron had to be included in Mamagen because iron deficiency can occur frequently in pregnancy and postpartum. If you’re not getting enough iron you may develop anemia, which is when your blood doesn’t have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to your tissues and baby. When you are pregnant your body produces more blood, which is why you need enough iron to ensure your body is producing enough red blood cells with that extra blood. Furthermore, during delivery you lose a lot of blood and are at risk of anemia postpartum as well. It is very important women who are entering the phases of motherhood are educated on the risk of not supplementing enough iron around pregnancy and postpartum. It can become very dangerous for mom and baby.
Vitamin C – Everyone learns from a very young age to make sure you get your Vitamin C. Everyone has also started taking extra dosages of Vitamin C AFTER they get a cold. Women who are in the phases of motherhood don’t have time to be sick. They are going through enough already there’s no need to have a cough or runny nose to keep you up at night. This is why Zammex Nutrition has included Vitamin C and Elderberry in Mamagen. Vitamin C is the most well-known antioxidant out there, but what we don’t typically know is while it’s helping protect your cells against free radicals your body needs it to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and……. Collagen. Yes, that’s correct. Vitamin C and collagen can work synergistically to build your collagen levels and prevent all the side effects of collagen decline.
Elderberry – Complimentary to Vitamin C, Mamagen has added Elderberry, which is being labeled as one of the world’s most healing plants. The berries and flowers of this plant are jam packed with antioxidants and vitamins to help boost your immune system. They’ve also been shown to help with inflammation, lower stress and help protect your heart. Let’s face it mom’s – there’s going to be inflammation and stress during this journey.
Once again, Zammex Nutrition requests that you please consult your doctor prior to taking Mamagen. We want this amazing journey into motherhood to be a happy, healthy and most importantly SAFE one. Mamagen is there to support you as you bring in one of the greatest miracles life has to offer!
