Why Protiva?

Protiva Pregnancy and Protiva New Mom are the only clinically proven collagen protein formulas proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women and new moms

Optimal Nutrition

Protiva is the first and only clinically-proven collagen protein shown to be safe and effective for pregnant women and new moms.

Every serving of Protiva helps boost protein levels while providing support in ways unique to other types of protein.

Protiva is an easily digested, highly bioavailable collagen protein that gets delivered to all the parts of the body pregnant women and new moms need most.

Our clinical study shows that 100% of pregnant and postpartum women who took Protiva throughout their pregnancy and after delivery had improvement in much-needed protein levels over women who did not take Protiva. These women also showed a significant improvement in the overall quality of life and postpartum wound healing.

 

Improved Milk Supply

Protiva is the first and only clinically-proven collagen protein shown to be safe and effective for pregnant women and new moms, including breastfeeding women.

Research has shown that 98% of pregnant women and new moms have below normal protein levels, which can dramatically affect milk supply while breastfeeding.

Increased Energy

Along with a diet rich in nutritious foods, Protiva collagen helps to balance blood sugar levels and boost energy levels – helping women to overcome fatigue that’s often affects women throughout pregnancy and early motherhood.

Protiva Pregnancy and Protiva New Mom each have a unique formula specifically designed to complement the nutrients women need, allowing them to feel their best.

 

Improved Skin Tone

A woman’s body goes through a lot when she is pregnant and after delivery. Our body’s ability to stretch and snap back is largely due to collagen, which makes up about 75% of our skin. Protiva collagen helps to replenish collagen as it diminishes and is affected by pregnancy, helping women maintain improved skin tone.

No other form of protein has the ability to do this.

More importantly, Protiva is the only collagen clinically proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women and new moms.

 

Faster Recovery

Whether you’ve have a C-section, episiotomy or entirely natural childbirth, women need time to rest and recovery after delivery. Ligaments, tendons and skin are all greatly affected throughout the months of pregnancy, delivery and even during the postpartum months.

Protiva Pregnancy and Protiva New Mom provide a woman’s body with the protein and micronutrients she needs to repair faster so she can get back on her feet, feeling like herself again.

 

Better Digestion

Don’t let pregnancy hormones get the best of your digestion. Most of the lining of your digestive tract is made up of collagen. Making the Protiva blend of nutritious collagen protein a part of your daily routine can help strengthen the lining of your gut, improving digestion.

What is the difference between Protiva Pregnancy and Protiva New Mom?

Plus Icon

Protiva Pregnacy was specifically developed and clinically proven to help moms during pregnancy. A normal protein level is between 6.8 – 8.3 (g/dl). While pregnant it is important that a woman’s protein level is in the normal range to help her baby develop and prepare her body for delivery.

Protiva New Mom was specifically developed to help moms recover from delivery. Protiva New Mom provides the additional vitamin C, vitamin E and protein they need to recover and remain in the normal protein range while breastfeeding. It is important to pediatricians that Protiva New Mom is allergen and preservative free. Most babies develop rashes after birth and moms are asked to stop eating foods to which a baby may be allergic. Since moms still need to maintain normal protein ranges while breastfeeding, doctors like to have an allergen free protein source available for moms. Talk to your doctor about how to maintain your protein levels after delivery. Protiva New Mom should not be taken while you are pregnant.

How likely am I to be protein deficient?

Plus Icon

During the second and third trimester of Pregnancy, moms may require a 50% increase of daily protein. In a recent clinical study, 85% of women in their third trimester had protein levels at or below the minimal protein range of 6.8 – 8.3 (g/dl). In the third trimester, protein levels are critical for the development of your baby. Protiva Pregnancy is clinically proven to help increase protein levels during pregnancy.

I already take a prenatal vitamin. Is it ok to take Protiva, too?

Plus Icon

Yes, Protiva has been formulated to complement any Prenatal Vitamin regimen your doctor feels is best for you.  You should discuss with your doctor any product or vitamin you plan to take during your pregnancy and while breast feeding. By not including large vitamin doses, Protiva gives the doctor and patient the flexibility to choose exactly what is best for mother and baby.

How much Protiva do I need a day.

Plus Icon
We recommend one serving one to two times a day blended into a shake, smoothie or into your favorite dessert for added nutrition.

How do I know it will work?

Protiva is the first and only collagen protein powder to have completed a full Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved clinical study. Find out more here.

Protiva is the only protein product to participate in an Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved multiple site, clinical study of women while they were pregnant, recovering from delivery and breastfeeding. Pregnant women who participated in the clinical study had their blood drawn to monitor protein and albumin levels. Nearly 85% of the pregnant women had initial protein levels that were either below the normal range or barely at the normal range. After taking Protiva, 100% of the women achieved normal protein levels and maintained them while they remained on Protiva.

Why was Protiva developed?
