Posted on Jul 31, 2013 in News and Articles

Steven G. Pratt, M.D., has released SuperFoods Rx For Pregnancy. The groundbreaking approach to healthy living and disease prevention is now the basis for an important new book on pregnancy.

La Jolla, CaliforniaNovmeber 20, 2013—In his first book, the New York Times bestseller SuperFoods Rx, Dr. Steven G. Pratt revolutionized the way we think about food and health, and launched the SuperFoods movement. Now, some 10 years later, he has published an important new book—SuperFoods Rx For Pregnancy: The Right Choices for A Healthy, Smart, Super Baby.

SuperFoodsRxForPregnancy200Dr. Pratt uses his highly popular SuperFoods Rx approach and draws on the latest scientific research to help future parents meet the nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle needs of their baby and themselves—starting before conception and taking them through the critical first months of their baby’s life.

The SuperFoods approach is based on a simple but profound premise: some foods are dramatically better than others for our health and longevity. Dr. Pratt published the first comprehensive book on SuperFoods and created the first list and analysis of SuperFoods—originally 14, now 25 foods—along with their key nutrients, micronutrients and phytochemicals—necessary to live a healthier.

This concise, approachable, but highly informative new book is intended for healthcare professionals, nutritionists and dieticians, and most-importantly, moms- and dads-to-be.

SuperFoods Rx For Pregnancy succinctly:

  • Identifies the 25 SuperFoods you need to eat for optimal health before, during, and after pregnancy
  • Provides specific how-to information about the SuperNutrients that help to lower your risk of complications during pregnancy and your baby’s risk for many chronic diseases later in life
  • Makes it clear that the nutrition and lifestyle choices women make during this time will significantly affect their health and longevity after they reach menopause
