Pregnancy can change your body in ways you never imagined, but adding Sunraysia’s Prune Juice to your diet could make all the difference.

Pregnancy can be a wonderful time, but it can also change your body in ways you could never have imagined. Tiredness, low mood, and uncomfortable digestive changes all go with the territory. Thankfully, there are some simple ways to improve your overall wellbeing. Prune juice is a great addition to any diet, but particularly throughout pregnancy, and Sunraysia’s Prune Juice provides all the benefits without any sneaky nasties.

A favourite with the health-conscious among us, Sunraysia’s Prune Juice is a proactive way to improve your sense of wellbeing and feel great from the inside out!

Promotes Healthy Digestion

Constipation is unpleasant at the best of times, but for mums-to-be, it can be particularly challenging. Expectant mums need 25mg-35mg of fibre each day but this can be difficult when you can barely stomach a piece of dry toast! Sunraysia’s Prune Juice is a great source of fibre that will keep your digestive system moving, with prunes acting as a mild, natural laxative. It can also reduce the risk of developing haemorrhoids as a result of chronic constipation. We’re constantly told how important your gut is to your overall sense of wellbeing, so keeping regular is an absolute must!

Packed With Vitamins And Minerals

Sunraysia’s Prune Juice makes it easy to up your intake of important vitamins and minerals, particularly during and after pregnancy. The naturally occurring nutrients in the juice, including potassium, which is crucial for normal nervous system function, and iron, which keeps oxygen moving around your body, ensure you are reaching your daily intake requirements. Iron contributes to normal energy function and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, necessary for normal neurological development in the foetus, for the healthy development of your baby. There’s also plenty of essential nutrients and antioxidants packed into the juice as well which are essential for fighting infection and staying healthy.

Gives You An Energy Boost

We all feel sluggish from time to time, but pregnancy can add an extra level of fatigue to the mix. If you’re avoiding caffeine, reaching for sugary treats can seem like the only way to combat the tiredness, but this can leave you feeling worse. Prune juice is a great alternative if you’re looking for a source of energy as it doesn’t cause a sudden spike in sugar levels and makes for a longer-lasting boost that will keep you going throughout the day. Sunraysia’s Prune Juice is natural and nutritious so you can have the best of both worlds.

Keeps The Good Stuff In

Sunraysia’s Prune Juice comes in a 100% recyclable glass bottle which keeps the good stuff in and the bad stuff out! It is also available in a range of convenient sizes, with a 250mL bottle perfect for mums on-the-go, and a larger 1L bottle for the whole family to enjoy. We especially love that, unlike a lot of other brands, Sunraysia’s Prune Juice has no added sugar, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours. How good is that!?

Family Friendly

While there are so many potential benefits of prune juice during pregnancy, the benefits aren’t just limited to mums-to-be. You may even find that your partner could benefit from prune juice from time to time! It can also be useful for children over the age of one, with a small amount of Sunraysia Prune Juice an effective and natural way to relieve constipation in consultation with your family healthcare provider.

Whether you’re thinking about having a baby, currently pregnant, or a busy mum on-the-go, Sunraysia’s Prune Juice is a no brainer if you’re looking for an easy way to add a little extra spring to your step.

Sunraysia’s Prune Juice is available from Woolworths, Coles and a range of independent supermarkets.

The team at Mouths of Mums is working with Sunraysia to bring you this article. We love that Sunraysia juices have no nasties added and offer health benefits in a blend that tastes great – giving you the best of both worlds. Natural, nutritious, delicious.

  • I have been drinking Sunraysia Prune Juice every night before bed for a week now and have found that my slight constipation has disappeared. I didn’t know that it gave you a little extra spring to your step, maybe I should be drinking it in the morning instead.

  • Manufacturers make prune juice from prunes, which are dried plums. Although prune juice appears to offer some benefits for people with constipation, eating whole prunes may be more effective. Prunes contain more than double the amount of sorbitol than prune juice, at 14.7 g of sorbitol per 100 g of dried fruit. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol found in fruits and plants with diuretic, laxative and cathartic property. Unabsorbed sorbitol retains water in the large intestine through osmotic pressure thereby stimulating peristalsis of the intestine and exerting its diuretic, laxative and cathartic effect.

  • For my youngest who has Down syndrome and constipation due to low muscle tone, I just soak dried prunes daily and consume the prunes & the liquid (and I add Osmolax to the liquid)
