Sick of Morning Sickness

Provided By:




(NC)-According to Motherisk, a clinical research and teaching program at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, some 80 per cent of all pregnant women suffer from 'morning sickness' from the first seven to 12 weeks, though some 20 per cent will suffer from these symptoms for a longer period of time, possibly for the duration of the pregnancy.

While prescription medications for morning sickness are available to women, many pregnant women are reluctant to take drugs they believe may carry unwanted risks to them, or their unborn child.

Ginger is an anti-nauseant approved by Health Canada. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the value of ginger for reducing nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy and motion sickness. The beneficial effects of ginger are attributed to compounds called gingerols, which aid digestion and have a calming effect on the stomach and intestines.

Although prenatal vitamins are highly recommended by doctors and pharmacists for pregnant women, formulas containing ginger were not widely available at retail - until now. A new supplement, femMED's Pregnancy + Ginger, is now available at several major retailers.

"I am thrilled to finally see the inclusion of a safe anti-nauseate like ginger in a high quality prenatal," said Dr. Fay Weisberg, gynecology and infertility specialist. "Up to 80 per cent of pregnant women experience some level of nausea and vomiting particularly in their first trimester; this natural remedy will be well received and a welcome relief to many."

femMED's new Pregnancy + Ginger formula has 1000 milligrams of ginger shown to clinically prevent symptoms of nausea and vomiting. In addition, femMED uses ginger root powder since the majority of clinical studies conducted on pregnant woman have been based on the powdered form. For more information, visit www.femmed.com.
