Pregnancy Gestational Diabetes Test + Safer Alternatives

Did you drink this for your gestational diabetes test when you were pregnant?

Are you aware of how toxic this mixture is?

This glucose “drink” contains things like:

  • Brominated vegetable oil (BVO) which is a FLAME RETARDANT & is BANNED in Europe & Japan

  • BVO contains Bromine which is known to cause thyroid dysfunction, has been associated w/ heart lesions, liver dysfunction, impaired growth & behavioral development/neurological/fertility issues!

  • Other ingredients include: artificial flavors & colors (DYES), & high fructose GMO corn syrup


Here are some better alternatives:

  • Hemoglobin A1C test- simple blood test done in your first trimester to assess your risk for gestational diabetes

  • EAT WELL and do random glucose testing which you can do yourself at home with a simple finger prick

  • ”The Jelly Bean Test” Where you swap the drink out for 28 jelly beans, which provides the 50 grams of sugar required for the traditional test. (Be sure to get organic, NON-GMO and naturally-colored jelly beans)

  • Blood finger prick

  • 6 ounces organic grape juice + a banana

  • 1 cup milk + 1.5 cups cereal

  • Pancakes with 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 28 dye-free jelly beans

  • Natural soda with 50 grams total sugar

  • 16-ounces orange juice

There is absolutely NO reason for you to need to drink this toxic chemical cocktail

BVO's label of GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA was removed in 1970 and it was taken off the market, only 7 years later to be reintroduced in soft drinks and put on "interim" status where it still stands.
