A probiotic made specially for mums and mums to be.
We know you want nothing for the best for your baby, even from those very early stages of pregnancy - and beforehand! That’s why it’s so important to find the best support for your body to help you through this exciting, yet demanding period of your life.
A probiotic, or a good bacteria, is a simple yet effective way to support your health and wellbeing. Qiara Pregnancy and Breastfeeding contains a probiotic isolated from breast milk, and is designed specifically to support women from pre-conception to breastfeeding. The potential benefits are backed by research and specific clinical trials.
How does it work?
Your body’s microbiome - the collection of microbes such as bacteria, viruses and fungi in the body, plays a vital role in your health, including digestion, nutrient absorption, immunity and inflammation. Poor nutrition, medications, stress and other environmental factors can all influence the microbiome, so keeping it healthy is so important for a healthy pregnancy.
Why? Because your baby’s microbiome starts in utero and will continue to develop well into toddlerhood. By taking Qiara Pregnancy and Breastfeeding daily during conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding, you’ll be supporting your microbiome and your baby’s from the very start.
Qiara contains a single strain probiotic isolated from human breast milk Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT5716. Qiara Pregnancy & Breastfeeding has shown to help restore the balance of good bacteria in the gut as well as pass into breastmilk. That means that just like breast milk, it’s packed full of all that good stuff to support your health and your baby’s health.
The benefits of Qiara
Unlike many other probiotics, Qiara contains a single strain probiotic isolated from human breast milk. We all know how much good stuff is packed into breast milk, which means this probiotic:
Is safe and well tolerated by mum and baby with wide spread benefits for both
Reduces the need to give a separate probiotic if mum is taking Qiara, as it passes into breastmilk and then onto baby
Helps maintain a healthy balance in the microflora ecosystem in gut and breast milk
Has been clinically shown to reduce breast pain and conditions such as mastitis. Qiara aggressively targets and outcompetes the pathogenic bacteria - the bad bacteria - in breast milk that causes infection and pain
Can help if you have had a c-section or are on antibiotics to prevent infection and help you to restore and maintain the balance of good bacteria found in the gut AND in breast milk.
Antibiotics tend to target and eliminate both good and bad bacteria, leading to a reduction in the levels of beneficial and protective flora in breast milk, causing a condition called dysbiosis, which is known to increase your risk of infections such as mastitis. Dysbiosis has also been show to have a negative impact on a baby’s microbiome and immune system development, and this can impact their health for life!
Even if you're not breastfeeding, Qiara Infant (purple box, containing the same BM isolated probiotic strain at a smaller dose) is very beneficial for baby - it can be added to baby's bottle from as early as newborn.
Whatever your stage of pregnancy, infancy and early motherhood, Qiara probiotics can be taken safely from pre-conception, throughout pregnancy, breastfeeding, after weaning and infancy.
Qiara is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It contains no added dairy, yeast, eggs, gluten, nuts, soy, salt or animal products.
It is available from Qiara in 28 individually sealed sachets and is easy to drink or add to food - such as a smoothie, yoghurt or cereal.
