Fabulous Folic and Fantastic Fiber – how far we've come Feb 21 2008 8:23 AM

ld be consuming at least 400mg of folic acid before pregnancy, made folicandfiber.jpgscarier by the stat that 50% of American pregnancies are unplanned. 

What are they doing about it? - launching a new "folic acid for a healthy pregnancy" seal for bread products that have over 40mg of folic acid. 

What are we doing about it?  - continuing to be champions for pregnancy and women's general wellness education... and telling everyone that each bottle of Glow Mama has 100mg of folic acid. 

It also wasn't until ten years ago that the first official health claim was approved - that oat fiber, as part of a heart-healthy diet can reduce the risk of heart disease.   A recent review published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine has verified that the fiber in oats lowers both total and LDL cholesterol, and that the phenols they contain have antioxidant properties.  While Glow Mama doesn't contain fiber derived from oats (can you imagine what that would be like to drink?)  it does contain lots of natural fiber derived from veggies - 4grams of it per bottle to be exact.  That's 16% of your daily recommended fiber intake, or the equivalent to eating a bowl of porridge.
