When it comes to pregnancy, you just never know. The fact is, no one is going to study the effects of just about anything (drug, herb, etc.) on pregnant women, so we just don't know.
Do some research on these herbs and see if you find anything regarding their safe consumption during pregnancy. To be on the safe side, if you DO want to take the product, you may want to wait until after the first trimester.
Good luck and hopefully the OB will give you some helpful info or give you some helpful resources so you can make your own decision.
By the way, congratulations!
Thanks for your quick response. I see my OBGYN tomorrow, however, what if he doesn't know much about herbs and L-Glutamine/NAG? I'm going to show him tomorrow, I'm just concerned that they may not know much about this stuff and that he will automatically ride it off and say not to take it.
This stuff has really helped me during my Ulcerative Proctitis flare (it takes about 3 weeks to see results for me), and I'm going thru a mini flare right now, but I have stopped taking it, cause I found out that I'm a few weeks pregnant.
I see a Naturopathic doctor on July 22nd, however, it seems likes weeks away before I get to see her. I want to ask her if she thinks the ingredients in IntestiNew are safe to take.

As you could imagine, we always advise pregnant women to consult with their OB/GYN before taking our (or any) supplements just to be on the safe side. Typically though, some supplements are not only considered generally safe during pregnancy but can confer significant health benefits – like folic acid and DHA.
IntestiNEW contains L-glutamine, a semi essential amino acid which is especially helpful for the digestive system's structure and function. This amount of L-glutamine is very therapeutic and the additional nutraceuticals like NAG and Gamma Oryzanol also maintain a healthy intestinal lining. Intestinew also contains additional herbs which are nourishing and soothing to the digestive tract but may be questionable during pregnancy.
You may want to print out the IntestINEW supplement facts or "product overview" page from our website and show your OB and see if he/she has any concerns about the ingredients.
