SUPPLEMENT FEATURE: RICE PROTEIN SHAKES (CHOCOLATE AND VANILLA) AND PHYTONUTRIENT POWDER

By Shawna Schwalb, MS, Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist

For the month of May, we wanted to give you a little more insight on two high quality supplements that might be helpful additions to your fertility treatment plan. Our Phytonutrient Powder and Rice Protein Shake are free or artificial colorings, flavorings, and preservatives and are triple certified for Good Manufacturing Practices. These supplements have all been through Independent testing of each batch of raw materials for contaminants, PCBs, dioxins, and heavy metals.

Our Phytonutrient Powder is a 100% certified organic fruit and vegetable powder rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which may help reduce inflammation and prevent free radical damage to eggs and sperm. It's a great option if you have trouble getting in your daily fruit and vegetables or to provide extra antioxidant support. We recommend taking 1-2 teaspoons daily. The Phytonutrient Powder is gluten free and vegetarian. It is delicious in water or in any liquid you prefer. You could even add it to your morning smoothie.

Why not get that nutritional boost in the morning after the body has been fasting and repairing during your sleep. The Pulling Down the Moon Rice Protein Shake is a great way to get that much-needed nutrient boost of protein, vitamin and minerals, while also being gentle on the belly. The sweetness and electrolyte balance will replenish your system to help carry you through the day. Add some of those veggies and fruits lying around and press a button to blend!

Our Pulling Down the Moon nutritionists have created some smoothie recipes that are not only nutritious, but they are filled with specific nutrients that support fertility. The recipes below experiment with almond milk and coconut water as the smoothie base. To add extra nutrient punch to these shakes, we suggest add-ins like Probiotic Powder and PhytoNutrient Powder. Please note, too, that these smoothies do not use crushed ice. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, a fertility diet does notemphasize cold foods.
