Yes! Top Up Tonic is safe to take postpartum and while breastfeeding. In fact, it can help your body recover faster. Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, your body prioritizes giving nutrients to your baby so it can thrive, but this can come at the expense of your own health. What’s more, breastfeeding women require higher amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, B vitamins and zinc than non-breastfeeding women. By replenishing these and other critical nutrients, Top Up Tonic can help keep your energy up, your mood stable and your hormones balanced.
Constipation is a common concern during the postpartum period. The prebiotics and probiotics in Top Up Tonic can help keep you regular. Bifidobacterium bifidum and lactobacillus acidophilus probiotics have been shown to normalize stool frequency and consistency in people who have constipation within one week.
The immune system is suppressed during pregnancy and returns to normal three to four months postpartum. So it’s a good idea to support your immune system with nutrients like vitamin C and zinc during this period. Low mood in the early postpartum period is common and is linked to lower levels of folate, selenium and zinc—all of which can be found in Top Up Tonic.
