Additional supplement for pregnant mums – Neurogain PB

In addition to the existing supplements that I am taking, I have now started taking Neurogain PB. This was introduced to me by my colleague who has a one year plus daughter. She mentioned that she realised that her daughter’s intelligence seems better than those of the similar age, and realised the benefits gained from Neurogain PB. After doing some online survey, I decided to try this supplement. There are quite number of blogs that recommend this supplement. I read that it is best to take Neurogain PB after stepping into fifth month of pregnancy.

I bought my first vegecap from Watsons at RM51. I noticed that online price varies from RM45 to RM54.
