The UpSpring Difference
Our specially formulated probiotic (Lactobacillus Rhamnosus HN001™) has been clinically studied for over a decade, beginning with pregnant women, through birth, and up to their child’s 11th birthday.
Those babies whose moms took Lactobaciliius Rhamnosus HN001 during pregnancy had fewer immune problems indicating the benefits were passed from mom to baby in utero. UpSpring Prenatal Dual Immunity uses this same probiotic strain, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus HN001, that has been tested in long-term double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials and shown to have clinically proven benefits for your growing baby!

During pregnancy, take one capsule daily with water in addition to your prenatal vitamin. You can continue using after baby's born too! If you're breastfeeding, take one capsule daily to continue passing along immunity benefits to baby. If you aren't breastfeeding, open the capsule and dissolve powder into cold or room temperature formula or food. Give to baby for continued immune support!
You can begin taking it at any point during your pregnancy, but we recommend starting as early as possible to help support your natural immune defenses.*
You can pass immune benefits on to your baby if you take UpSpring Dual Prenatal Immunity while breastfeeding. If you aren’t breastfeeding you can also help build your baby’s immune system by opening up the capsules and dissolving the powder into her food or formula. Your baby will still be developing her immune system up until about age two to three. Moms, of course, can experience the benefits at any time – before, during, or after pregnancy.
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus HN001, a clinically studied probiotic strain proven to have lasting effects on baby’s immunity.*[i]
Unlike many other supplements, the active ingredient in UpSpring Dual Prenatal Immunity has been studied in a long-term double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with pregnant mamas and shown to have positive (and lasting) benefits for baby.*
UpSpring Dual Prenatal Immunity is not a prenatal vitamin. It is an immunity supplement with dual benefits for both mom and baby, designed to be taken during pregnancy alongside (not instead of) a prenatal vitamin.
UpSpring Dual Prenatal Immunity is designed with prenatal stomachs in mind. It helps balance gut health and is well tolerated by pregnant tummies!*
