Having a baby is the paramount example of a momentous occasion where exciting and exhausting go hand in hand. While you may be naturally inclined to put your child’s needs above your own, consider that the best version of you is the one that will be able to provide your baby with the best care and quality time.

As a new mom, your body is recovering from pregnancy, and such a process takes time and energy. Imagine all the changes your body went through to nurture and develop a human being for nine months. And, if you are nursing, that means additional nutritional demands.

But it’s not only your body; your mind needs care too. Pregnancy changes a woman’s brain structure for at least two years after giving birth, according to a study published in Nature Neuroscience Journal. A new mom’s brain optimizes its resources and rewires itself to help cater to the needs of her infant.

Fatigue and lack of sleep make it hard to think about putting together healthy meals and getting adequate nutrition, but that is the foundation of physical and mental health. Herbalife Nutrition’s New Mom for Wellness Shake Booster has specific vitamins and minerals that contribute to healthy mental performance and focus* to help you thrive in your new role.

This Booster is a flavor neutral power – with no added flavors, colors, sugar or sweeteners – that comes ready to add to your favorite Formula 1 Shake and enjoy as a healthy snack. This, in addition to your meals, will help you fill your nutritional gaps by providing vitamins and minerals uniquely needed for new mothers, especially:

  • Folate: which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Vitamin B6: which helps regulate hormonal activity*.

 

Help meet your nutrition needs to make the most out of the incredible experience of being a new mom.
