We at Beauté de Maman are so excited. We always knew that our morning sickness supplement was the best on the market… but now there’s proof! And from the very best source!
I just received my copy of The New England Journal of Medicine, arguably the most prestigious medical journal in the world. Much to my pleasure, but not my surprise, the following article about nausea relief in pregnancy has been featured in this latest issue.
Even though I developed my Beauté de Maman Nausea Supplement two years before this was published, the article confirms that the ACOG ingredient guidelines that we OB/GYNs follow is indeed the best way to offer pregnant women relief from morning sickness.
Best of all, these are the exact ingredients we have put into our Beauté de Maman Supplement for pregnancy-related nausea.
Below are some technical highlights from the article.
Ginger and Vitamin B6 are the most effective, first line remedy for pregnancy related nausea.
Randomized, placebo controlled trials have shown effectiveness of vitamin B6 (10–25 mg every 8 hours) in the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.
Oral Vitamin B6 has been studied in more than 6,000 patients and controls with no evidence of teratogenicity. In these randomized trials, Vitamin B6 has been associated with 70% reduction in nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.
Randomized, double-blind trials have provided support for the benefit of Ginger in the management of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.
In four randomized trials with a total of 675 participants, Ginger in capsules (tasteless) was superior to placebo and in two trials, the efficacy of Ginger was similar to that of vitamin B6.
Furthermore, Ginger was not associated with other clinically significant side effects or with any increased risk of an adverse pregnancy outcome. Ginger is considered to be a food supplement and NOT a drug.
Conclusion: A pregnant woman should use Ginger and Vitamin B6 combined in an odorless, tasteless gel capsule as a first line remedy for nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. If this fails to relieve the symptoms, prescription medications can be considered.
Beauté de Maman follows:
- ACOG recommended guideline for pregnancy nausea relief
- Recommendations supported in a new article published in the October 2010 issue of The New England Journal Of Medicine as being effective for nausea relief
- Ingredients in the recommended dosages in our Beauté de Maman pregnancy-related nausea supplement.

PS: As a physician, I do understand the fear women have of swallowing a pill while pregnant, but the NEJM article concludes that Ginger and Vitamin B6 is safe and effective. When placed in a gel capsule that is tasteless and odorless, a pregnant woman can “keep down” these very effective ingredients.
Beauté de Maman is now being sold at drugstore.com as well as many other fine retailers around the globe.
