UpSpring Prenatal +Review

Friday, April 28, 2017

As women, our bodies go through a number of changes based on our lifestyle , genetics and ultimately pregnancy! Today, women are more aware of what they put in their bodies before , during and after pregnancy. We are at the Haute Lifestyle is all about having a healthy and happy pregnancy and is happy to be a part of the Upspring Prenanal + Campaign where we received Prenatal Multivitamin gummies and soft gel capsules for better brain development for babies. UpSpring, a mom-founded and mom-run company, has a mission to empower parents with confidence and to give them the freedom to enjoy motherhood even more. By finding innovative solutions to the everyday health and wellness challenges and frustrations facing mothers of a baby or young child, UpSpring provides “more fun, less worry.” Since 2005,UpSpring has made all-natural products based on true science that solve real problems.

The best part about these gummies is how great they taste and they are completely natural! There are no artificial anything | Gluten Free | No GMO. There are 90 mango-peach gummies and 30 soft gels which are said to help with brain development. I know if you have been an avid reader of this Blog, you are probably thinking this is way too much info for you and you might not even be pregnant. If you are hoping or trying to get pregnant, doctors will recommend that you take prenatal vitamins at for at least 6 months to increase the changes of getting pregnant and to ultimately have a healthy baby. Yes, it is that safe and it tastes great! If you know anything about soft-gels, you would know that most of them will have a fishy taste and even weirder fishy after taste once you burp; this soft-gel does not have that taste and it's a lot smaller in size. I like that these two come packaged together as one so you won't have to search for another pill to take along with the multi-vitamins as they are packaged neatly together.

See below for a few of the benefits of the Prenatal + Gummies

Prenatal+ Gummy
ü Clinically proven to support fetal brain development
ü 100% daily value of 11 essential nutrients plus 285 mg DHA/EPA and 800 mcg natural folate to support healthy brain and eye development
ü Choline to nourish baby’s developing brain
ü Delicious mango-peach flavored gummies and softgel are easy on sensitive stomachs and have no fishy aftertaste or fish ‘burps’

ü All natural, gluten free, low sugar and non-GMO; Only 3 gummies and 1 softgel per day


  • ·        Omega-3 fats, especially DHA, are concentrated in the brain. The brain has the greatest need for omega-3 during the fetal growth period and until age 2.
  • ·        Pregnant women who take fish oil have higher levels of omega-3 in their breast milk. Breastfed infants have higher DHA levels at age 1 compared to formula fed babies; higher DHA levels in infants are associated with better hand-eye coordination.
  • ·        Children whose mothers took fish oil had better hand-eye coordination at age 2 ½. Children who had higher levels of DHA in their cord blood at birth achieved higher motor skill scores at age 7.

UpSpring Prenatal+ Gummy retails for $24.99 at Target (in the Women’s Health & Family Planning aisle).  Prenatal+ is also available in an easy to swallow tablet with 18 mg of iron.

The activities include mobile app building, animation, robotics, digital video production and digital art works, and web development.
A day-long immersion in ICT, the ‘hackathon’ will give the girls and young women, an opportunity to envision themselves, not only as users of technology, but creators.
The ‘hackathon’, led by a group of women consultants through a joint partnership between Cotton Tree Consulting and Change Makers Development Ltd, will take place simultaneously, in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.
“Scotiabank is pleased to be part of an initiative that will inspire and excite our girls through their engagement with technology.  This unique opportunity is one we are sure will not only encourage interest but ultimately galvanise the talent of Jamaican women in the development of the ICT industry,” said Yanique Forbes Patrick, vice-president of marketing at Scotiabank, regional platinum sponsor of the hackathon.
The event is also supported regionally by Gold Sponsor LOOP in partnership with the University of the West Indies.

Let’s Talk Tech

A number of local, regional and international role model tech speakers will also be streamed, giving inspirational messages of support to the participants as over 40 messages can viewed over the ITU portal URL:
Messages will come from Trinidad-born Aaerospace engineer Camille Wardrop Alleyne, who currently serves as an assistant programme scientist for the International Space Station, based at National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Centre in Houston in Texas. Assistant Professor of Technology and Operations Management at Bason College, Jennifer Bailey, whose speciality is identifying effective strategies for generating innovation breakthroughs, while mitigating innovation risks will also have a message.

Nadeen Matthews, National Commercial Bank (NCB) chief digital and marketing officer and CEO of the NCB Foundation expressed that the hackathon is part of an important global movement to increase female representation in ICT.
“Digitisation is a global shift and our ability to effectively compete as a nation and as a corporate entity requires that we generate a talent pool with the requisite skill set to meet the growing demands. It is exciting to see so many Jamaican companies collaborating to make this a reality in Jamaica. NCB, as local platinum sponsor, is delighted to be part of this movement,” Matthews concluded. 
The Hackathon is sponsored locally by Phase 3 Productions, and supported by the Inter-American Development Bank.

Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Drink ft. Alovi Fruit Drink

Coconut oil has been dethroned and the new king or super-plant is Aloe Vera. If you are a health and beauty enthusiast, you would have realized that Aloe Vera products are everywhere.  Aloe Vera has numerous benefits when ingested and today we will be sharing a few health benefits of drinking Aloe Vera Juice.

For Digestion

Drinking Aloe Vera juice helps digestion, normalizes acid/alkaline and pH balance, lessens yeast formation, encourages digestive bacteria and regularizes bowel movements. Aloe Vera contains enzymes that help the body break down food and the plant’s soothing effect help to easily move food around to basically “free up” the intestine. If you have IBS drinking Aloe Vera juice will also be beneficial to you.

For Skin

If you have dry skin or susceptible to pre-mature aging (wrinkles) aloe juice drinks are great for combating those skin issues.  Though you can’t turn back the clock, drinking aloe Vera juice can work from the inside to help smooth out fine lines and improve the skin’s natural firmness.
Auxin and Gibberellins, two hormones found in Aloe Vera, have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce skin inflammation and promote the growth of new cells which is great for combating Acne.

For Weight Loss

Aloe Vera contains natural anti-oxidants that slow the growth of free radicals in the body and reduce Body Mass Index (BMI) by helping your body turn carbohydrates and fats into energy rather than storing them. We here at the Haute Lifestyle, did some research and found a quick natural recipe to lose weight using Aloe Vera juice.

You will need:
·         Aloe Vera Juice
·         Water
·         Lemon Juice or Lemon
·         Sweetener of your choice


Mix Aloe Vera gel, lemon juice, and water with your choice of sweetener and stir 2-3 minutes.
Drink regularly to encourage weight loss.
While Aloe Vera juice is refreshing especially on a hot day and it has several positive benefits. If you would like to try it, we recommend purchasing the aloe vera drink wholesale (to save a few bucks).
