I am 4 months pregnant, and I am taking Nutrilite Protein Powder of Amway. Is the soy content in it harmful to the baby?
Overall is this Nutrilite dangerous in any way?

I've heard that you shouldn't use any protein powders/products while pregnant because the effects on the baby have not been studied. I used to use a protein powder also but have now stopped.

I would switch to a whey based protein powder that can be added to milk. You can find them at any natural food shop. To avoid soy, this is your best bet. I drink protein powder milkshakes and have no intent on stopping. The pure whey protein is NOT harmful to your baby. They usually sell it in 24g servings per scoop.

Nutrilite protein powder is safe and use as food supplement and not consider it as medicine.

I heard from a friend, a nutritionist/doctor, that Nutrilite Protein Powder is safe - even a benefit - for pregnant mother and the baby. He said that Nutrilite Division of Amway has done many and wide ranges of testing - including for pregnant case - before launching their products. Also found an online article supporting this in website.

no this is not a good idea. try to get your protein sources naturally through lean meats, beans, and some fish. good luck
