After my first pregnancy my body didn’t recover properly during the confinement. I couldn’t lose the weight and had no energy. For my second pregnancy I got the help of Kak Ida, my bidan (midwife) who recommended the pegaga traditional herbs to help me get healthy quickly and gradually lose the extra weight. After my pregnancy I weighed 90kg, and thanks to the herbs I gradually starting losing weight until today where I weigh 65kg. My body felt different, I felt healthier and had more energy than I did after my first pregnancy because of the traditional herbs Kak Ida gave me. It’s so different than the usual modern supplements I took before. - Erin, 32
I was introduced to the herb Pegaga a year ago. At first, I was skeptical about Pegaga, but I started taking the herb right after my pregnancy, because my mother had told me that it is a great herb for my child’s immune system. But then I realized that Pegaga had helped me in many other ways. For example, when my girlfriends gave birth, they were feeling exhausted and their complexion was really dull. But I was energetic, and the recovery from my C-section was really fast too! I feel that Pegaga also helped with my milk supply by producing a lot of colostrum. After my pregnancy, I lost about 8kg due to childbirth, mostly due to breastfeeding. But with the Pegaga, I managed to lose another 15kg of weight and have a significant improvement with my digestion. - Nina, 31
I used to have digestive problems, but after taking Pegaga, I noticed that my digestion has improved a lot. Now when I pass motion it is really smooth.
After giving birth to my children, I recovered quickly and had a lot of energy. Even breastfeeding was smooth and easy.
An unexpected side effect that I am really happy about, is that my skin is now so radiant! I would definitely repurchase Pegaga in future!

Pegaga by PurelyB produces organic and healthy herb products with a mission to improve the livelihoods of marginalised women and farmers in Malaysia and Thailand. Farmers in the Northeastern region of Malaysia and the Southeastern region of Thailand are amongst the poorest in parts because of their lack of demand and inefficient agricultural methods, and in part from not being able to move from being at the bottom of the agricultural value chain. Rising production costs are also contributors. PurelyB is working direct with farmers to give them full value for their products without these having to go through many layers of middleman.
