BeNice Prenatal Review & Giveaway


Hey there, readers! It’s time for another fabulous product review and giveaway from yours truly! This time around, I will be reviewing a prenatal vitamin – but not just any prenatal vitamin! These are different than the everyday run-of-the-mill pills you find at Wal-Mart or that your doctor stocks you up on when you find out you’re pregnant. Why?

These are delicious!
Before I rave about BeNice, I’d like to share a little bit about prenatal vitamins and why they are essential in several different aspects.
TTC
It’s a good idea to begin taking prenatal vitamins for up to a year before you even conceive. Why? It basically helps get your body ready for baby, and a little extra health boost never hurt anyone.

Pregnancy
The benefits of taking a prenatal vitamin during pregnancy are undeniable. Your forming baby needs some essential vitamins and minerals such as folic acid, iron, and calcium. Folic acid is imperative in your baby’s development. Studies show that taking enough folic acid during your pregnancy can reduce your risk of having a baby with serious birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.

After Pregnancy/Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding can be demanding on a new mommy and your body needs to keep providing your baby with the nutrition and vitamins he or she needs! Something to think about is to keep your prenatal regimen that you had during pregnancy. You can talk to your doctor about it, but it is generally known that taking prenatals while breastfeeding has a lot of benefits. To read more, check out this article from emedtv.com.
BeNice Prenatal offers your benefits of a prenatal vitamin, plus 25% of your doctor’s recommended dose of folic acid. What makes BeNice so different is that fact that it’s not a pill – it’s a powder that you mix into your water! We all know that water is essential for a healthy pregnancy and that mommies-to-be need plenty of it. We also know that drinking water so much can get really boring, but luckily BeNice helps to “sweeten” things up a little, so to speak! Not only are you providing your baby with much-needed vitamins and minerals, but you’re also giving your body the hydration it so needs during this time in your life.

When I first got pregnant, I used the prenatal vitamins that my doctor gave me. And let me tell you, they were TERRIBLE. They were greasy, and left a fishy aftertaste which would come back up with my morning sickness. It was terrible. I ended up switching to a generic Wal-Mart brand prenatal, but it’s still such a pain in the butt to remember to take a pill everyday. I wish I had stumbled across BeNice in my earlier days of pregnancy!
The powder packets that they offer are meant to be dissolved into 16oz of water; about the size of a bottle of spring water. When I tried mine out, I didn’t have any bottled water so I just measured out about 16oz and mixed the drink powder right in. I’ve used powders that you mix into water before, and I am usually greeted with floating chunks of powder that stubbornly won’t dissolve at all. I didn’t have this problem in the slightest with BeNice. Every last particle dissolved into my water, and all I was left with was flavor. BeNice offers two flavors; Lemonade and Berrylicious. The first one I tried was the Berrylicious, which is a blend of strawberry and blueberry. From the first sip to the last, it was nothing but delicious. I actually looked forward to finishing my 16oz of water! It was fruity, refreshing, and not overpowering. Best of all – no funky aftertaste!
The second flavor I tried was Lemonade. I have to say, this one was my favorite! It tastes just like a nice, cold glass of lemonade. It was crisp, tasty, and refreshing!
BeNice Prenatal mixes are meant to be taken 1-4 times a day.
