This is an important part of re-establishing the proper flora after a bout with a yeast infection. Each pearl contains a blend of 1 billion good bacteria to help with many intestinal woes. They are encapsulated in a way that will get it to the intestine where needed and remain intact through the stomach acids. The Pro-Flora choice is a combination of six (rather than just two bacteria as in the regular pearls) for deep regeneration of the flora.
Fenugreek is an annual herb used for centuries to increase the production of breast milk. Fenugreek is a natural product containing disogenin, a plant-based estrogen, which has been shown to increase milk flow in lactating women to help support breast milk production.* Unlike other available Fenugreek supplements which can require taking up to 8 capsules per day, Fairhaven's Fenugreek contains a unique blend of organic Fenugreek Seed Powder, along with a concentrated Fenugreek Seed Powder extract (8:1), delivering a dose equivalent to 2000 mg of standard fenugreek seed powder in just 2 capsules a day.
Nursing Blend is an all-natural dietary supplement that contains a blend of herbs that have been used for centuries by nursing mothers when a boost in breast milk supply is needed, including fenugreek and fennel seed. And, by providing a unique combination of whole fenugreek seed powder along with a concentrated fenugreek seed extract, Nursing Blend offers an equivalent dose of 2 grams of fenugreek in each daily dose. Nursing Blend also includes herbs that provide calming effects for mom and baby, including chamomile and anise. Nursing Blend is endorsed by leading lacation specialist and MD, Dr. Kathleen Marinelli
To maintain health and produce nutritious breast milk, nursing moms need to be sure to eat a well-balanced diet, stay adequately hydrated and get plenty of rest. But, many experts agree that even doing all these things might not be enough to ensure that moms and babies stay healthy. As a result, doctors recommend that nursing moms supplement their diets with a good multivitamin. Often, a new mom will simply continue taking the prenatal vitamin she used during her pregnancy. Unfortunately, however, most prenatal vitamins do not contain enough of the specific nutrients that lactating women need to ensure health of both mother and baby.
NF's popular Chewable Echinacea Vitamin C has been found helpful in supporting the immune system so it can better fight infections. This potent combination of botanicals, combined with synergistic vitamins, natural mixed cartenoids, and Zinc, is in an easy-to-use chewable form, for adults and children aged 4 and older.
Elderberry's clinical applications are similar to those of Echinacea, although the marker compounds of the two plants differ in the modes of action. Research on Elderberry has been based primarily on European Elder (Sambucus nigra) extracts, the species used in NF's products.

A wonderful dairy-free blend of microflora specially selected for children. Bifdobacterium and Lactobacillus species are delivered in a vegetarian easy-to-use powder form that can be mixed with beverages or semi-solid food. Each individual bacterium is coated with the unique protein matrix in a base of FOS.
When antibiotics are used, many practitioners forget the second part of the equation, the probiotic that is needed to re-establish the flora (the good bacteria in the intestinal lining). Yeast/Thrush tends to get out of hand after the use of antibiotics and this can help prevent it's overgrowth. This may also be helpful when there is excessive gas or diarrhea to settle and balance the system again.
This botanical formula begins with Cranberry concentrate. Encapsulated Cranberry offers and excellent alternative to Cranberry juice products, most of which are high in sugar. It is for short-term use only, usually 1-2 weeks. Unsweetened Cranberry has long been known to help cleanse the bladder for those prone to infections. This product is NOT for use during pregnancy.

A mild, soothing combination of enzymes (including Chymotrypsin), herbs and concentrated Aloe vera, for every day use.
This blend begins with NF's PhytoZyme AG. Physicians developed this unique plant based digestive formula to provide a wide range of enzymatic activity for a variety of applications. Without enzymes nothing happens in digestion and with our cooked and processed diets the enzymes are depleted drastically. Enzyme therapy is a term we will be hearing more and more coming from the reasearch labs. Adding a little extra help can mean a whole new level of absorbing what we are eating. Women with heartburn in pregnancy don't need their stomach acid neutralized as some common preparations do because then the body has to work extra hard to make more because the food still needs to be digested. It makes more sense to eat smaller meals and help the body digest it quickly by adding more enzymes so it can be out of the stomach faster and not cause heartburn! PhytoZyme includes the enzyme Alpha-galactosidase. Enzymes are delivered in a base of supportive botanicals, including the herbal bitter Gentian and Ginger. Also contains Spectra Probiotic, NF's combination of 8 highly viable strains of microflora.
In addition to the above mentioned, PhytoZyme Plus includes the addition of: Slipper Elm bark (Ulmus rubra)..50 mg; Betaine HCI..50 mg; Papain..25 mg; Pepsin..25 mg; Papaya fruit (Cariaca papaya)..25 MG; Aloe vera leaves 200:1 extract..10 mg; Bromelain 2400 gdu/3600 mcu..10mg; Trypsin..5 mg; Chymotrypsin..0.25 mg
This popular, high-potency vegetarian daily multiple uses NF's original Prenatal Formula as a foundation. Prenatal Forte adds digestive enzymes from plant sources, and the classic herbs Alfalfa, Dandelion, Nettles, Raspberry Leaf and Yellow Dock. Cranberry is included, as well as Papaya and microflora. These extra enzymes and botanicals are well worth the the slightly higher price to help ensure that your body is better able to assimilate all the nutrients!
Daily Multiple Vitamin-Mineral with Supportive Botanicals
NF's Spectra Probiotic provides eight specially selected strains of microflora. Each capsule contains billions of bacteria in NF's unique protein matrix coating. This coating protects each of the individual bacteria from harsh stomach acids and digestive juices so it can get to the intestines where it was intended to go. When antibiotics are used many practitioners forget the second half of the equation and leave out the probiotics that help re-establish the good bacteria that were killed off with the bad. Without a Probiotic many women find that yeast proliferate beyond control and can lead to sore nipples, intra-ductal inflammation and possibly mastitis. Truly an ounce of prevention here is worth well over a pound of cure!

In 2008, the American Academy of Pediatrics raised it's recommended dose of Vitamin D to 400 IU's for children in response to the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency in our nation. Some experts think there may be a link to the explosion of autism since the early 90's when we started demonizing the sun. Now there is more cancer from "not enough sun" than "too much sun"! Most experts will encourage at least 1000 IU's in children a day and at least 5000 IU's for pregnant women. As always when you are pregnant, consult with your healthcare provider and do some research on your own! Each small soft gel is 1000 IU's.
