The global probiotics markets size is expected to be worth over $90 billion by 2028 at a 6.81% CAGR. Many of the consumers purchasing these probiotics are those with digestive issues, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease. We are now witnessing a gradual interest from women taking probiotics during pregnancy, as a first-of-its kind study conducted by the University of California Davis School of Medicine showed that probiotics can considerably improve the symptoms of pregnancy-related symptoms.
What Causes Nausea During Pregnancy?
During pregnancy, hormones like estrogen and progesterone rise, causing many physical changes to occur. These increased levels of hormones can change the gut microbiome, likely affecting the digestive system, causing unpleasant symptoms such as constipation, nausea, and vomiting. As Albert T. Liu, lead author for the University of California study told Vitamin Retailer, “Once nausea and vomiting during pregnancy progress, they can become difficult to control, and sometimes the patient even needs to be hospitalized.” With the help of a trusted manufacturing service provider, your private label probiotics could help women have an easier, less nauseating pregnancy.
The University of California study focused on 32 subjects taking probiotic capsule twice daily for six days and then not for two days to repeat the cycle. It found that consuming the probiotic significantly reduced nausea and vomiting. The number of hours participants felt nauseous was reduced by 16%, and the number of times they vomited was reduced by 33%. Probiotic consumption also improved symptoms related to quality of life like poor appetite and fatigue. It was also noted that high levels of the gut microbes Akkermansia and A. muciniphila were linked to more vomiting. Therefore, these two gut microbes may be reliable biomarkers used to predict vomiting while pregnant. Last, but not least, it was discovered that Vitamin E levels increased after taking probiotics. High levels of this nutrient were connected to lower vomiting scores. While you’re at it, manufacture a smooth Vitamin E softgel!
Gut health isn’t the only thing probiotics are good for in pregnant people. Probiotic supplements have shown promising effects in lowering blood sugar and insulin levels during pregnancy, which may improve overall health and lower the risk of other health complications. Since higher blood sugar can lead to premature birth or to the baby having difficulty breathing right after being delivered, your customers may want to consider upping their probiotic intake.
The most ingested foods that naturally contain probiotics include yogurt, kombucha, sauerkraut, pickles, sourdough bread, and kefir. However, your pregnant customers who are vegan or those who simply don’t like probiotic-rich foods, may turn to private label vitamins and supplements. Make your brand the one they choose by working with Makers Nutrition.
Value of Probiotic Supplement Manufacturing for Pregnant People
By creating a high-quality probiotic supplement through an FDA-registered, GMP-compliant facility, your private label brand could offer consumers, in this case, pregnant women, all the digestive and pregnancy health benefits they may not obtain through food. If those digestive system supporting benefits cannot make their way through the body with food, then you can help countless individuals with a dairy-free alternative. A probiotic supplement can help good bacteria fight off potentially detrimental invaders that can lead to infections and other health complications.
Probiotic Supplement Formats and White Label Probiotics
While many people get their daily probiotics from yogurt and other gut-friendly foods, probiotic supplements are most popularly manufactured and consumed in the form of capsules, powders, and gummies. Makers Nutrition offers probiotic pectin-based, raspberry watermelon gummies. These gummies are low in sugar, contain beneficial bacteria, and support a balanced digestive system. You may also privately label our white label probiotic capsules, which are rich in antioxidants and offer immune system support.
Branching Out with Supplements for Women
With all the promising research of probiotics, it’s no wonder why, according to the Canadian Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology Canada, 45-93% of midwives had prescribed some form of natural health products to expecting mothers. With that statistic, and the information above, the gears may be turning… thinking about expanding your private label vitamin line with products made just for women? Probiotics can certainly help most people, but since we are on the topic of probiotics for pregnant women, perhaps you see an opportunity to branch out with other supplements such as prenatal gummies, women’s multivitamins, and more! Today, females are interested in not just weight management, but building muscle and reaching new heights to achieve better health.
