Although in our Healthy Mummy range of products we have an Exercise DVD, our Chocolates, our Fish Oils, our 28 Day Plan and our Cookbooks, one of the biggest selling products we produce is our Healthy Mummy Smoothie range.
And we thought we out outline why it is very different to other products out there and what makes it so special.
It is accelerant and filler FREE
We are proud to say that our Smoothie is free from any fillers and weight loss accelerators. Many many weight loss shakes contain fillers and weight loss accelerants to trick your body into short term – and unhealthy weight loss. These artificial fillers make your tummy feel temporarily full are not natural and the long term effects are not known. They can also lead to a lot of the side effects associated with ‘shakes’.
It contains wholefoods
The Healthy Mummy Smoothie contains wholefoods and over 25 vitamins and minerals. The product is high quality and every ingredient in the smoothie has been included to be a benefit to your health. Most shakes do not provide this high quality and the reason you will see many ‘giveaway’ offers on TV with these brands is because their product is extremely cheap to make and do not use the wholefoods and high quality vitamins and minerals that we do – so it is very cheap to make and their product is topped up with sugar and fillers to bulk it out.
It is dairy and wheat free
Today many people have allergies to dairy and wheat so our smoothie is free of both of these ingredients. We use non genetically modified Soy Protein Isolate which uses only the protein part of the soy – not the oestrogen part of the soy.
It is breastfeeding friendly
We do not use any caffeines or weight loss accelerants in our smoothies so that breastfeeding mums can use it. We also included fenugreek in the smoothie to be an additional benefit – and if you are not breastfeeding, fenugreek can still be a great benefit to your health as it provides carbohydrates, dietary fibre, fats and minerals like iron, calcium and phosphorous. We have thousands of emails each month from mums on our plans who report improved milk supply from using our smoothies, but if your baby has any food sensitivities or suffers from colic we recommend talking to your Dr before changing your diet or using our products and plans.
It is a formulated meal replacement & passes international standards
Our smoothie is a formulated meal replacement and has passed International Food Standards. It provides your body with over 25 vitamins and minerals and the focus is on optimal nutrition. Some other ‘shakes’ on the market are only a protein shake or supplement.
This means they cannot be used as a meal substitute as they do not contain enough nutrients and energy to fuel your body and consumers can often be mislead into thinking a product called a Shake is a meal replacement when it is not. You can see a comparison table with other shakes here
What ingredients are in the Smoothie?
The smoothies are free from artificial sweeteners, additives, fillers, caffeine and weight loss accelerants

- Methionine 10mFg – important amino acid for normal metabolism

LOW GI: as part of a weight loss diet, low GI foods help to release glucose more slowly leading to a more stable blood glucose level.

The Healthy Mummy Fish Oils
Omega 3 fatty acids are very important as the body cannot produce them and they can therefore only be obtained from the diet.
DHA is essential for the growth and development of the brain in both the foetus and newborn baby and fish oil therefore supports healthy brain development and function. DHA also plays an important role in the development of the retina of the eye.
Fish oil supplementation by the mother has been shown to increase DHA and omega-3 fatty acid content of the breast milk.
Healthy Mummy Fish Oil 1000mg also:
- May assist the symptomatic relief and management of rheumatism.
- May assist in the management and relief of symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
- Supports & maintains the health of the cardiovascular system.
