A note from our founder
BYBB by Somavance is committed to educating individuals about preconception wellness and overall nutritional well-being. We aim to prepare your body, empower your mind and boost your confidence to encourage healthier gestation and provide continuing support as your family grows.
As society faces the meteoric rise of chronic inflammatory disease and developmental disorders affecting our children, personal care and detox for men and women in advance of conception is essential. The science is clear. Nutrients and antioxidants are needed to combat our increasingly high toxic body burdens, even more while preparing for parenthood.
It takes more than a month off the pill and a single prenatal vitamin to prepare a woman’s body for pregnancy, and men must prepare their bodies as well. Parenthood is joyous and shouldn’t include time spent wondering what else you could have done to prepare yourself or your child for a healthier life.
After thirty years of helping clients navigate through the maze of supplements and the flood of information, Geri Brewster has developed BYBB by Somavance to provide only the most essential supplements and comprehensive information on how to survive our very toxic world. Information on how changes to diet and lifestyle can be supported by gentle, effective supplementation.

Why Build Your Best Bump?
According to the CDC, childhood diseases and disabilities such as autism, allergies, ADHD and asthma are on the rise. Although the root of this surge is unclear, there is evidence that nutritional insufficiencies and environmental factors during pregnancy are a contributing factor.
If your body burden is high then your future offspring will also be absorbing chemicals in utero, potentially interfering with their developing neurological, endocrinological, immune and digestive systems, not to mention your own. Improving your nutrition and reducing your body burden prior to conception can help mitigate the effects of toxins.
It is important to realize that there is MORE in YOUR POWER to optimize your pregnancy outcome than you may be aware of!
Truth is in the Research

“A new study shows that chemicals begin circulating in the bodies of infants, even before they are born. The new findings are based on what researchers found in the umbilical cord blood of newborns. Even mothers who are avoiding alcohol, smoking and the mercury in fish may still be unable to prevent exposure to toxins.”

“The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) today released its position paper on Genetically Modified foods stating that “GMO foods pose a serious health risk” and calling for a moratorium on GMO foods. Citing several animal studies, the AAEM concludes “there is more than a casual association between GMO foods and adverse health effects” and that “GMO foods pose a serious health risk in the areas of toxicology, allergy and immune function, reproductive health, and metabolic, physiologic and genetic health.”

“As a result of the widespread use of BPA in food and beverage packaging, studies have found BPA in breast milk, saliva, urine, amniotic fluid and umbilical cord blood. It is especially troubling that children and fetuses are exposed to such a toxic chemical during development, which can result in permanent harm.”
