    Those warnings seem to exist on just about every supplement I have used (including multis). So I wonder if that's just a blanket "cya" attempt?

    Pretty much every product has that warning. The last thing a company wants is for a women who lost a baby to blame it on them.

    I came across this and it's not a bad idea to run it by your doctor first as with anything.

    To date, the medical literature has not reported any adverse effects related to fetal development during pregnancy or to infants who are breast-fed. Yet little is known about the use of this dietary supplement while pregnant or breast-feeding. Therefore, it is recommended that you inform your healthcare practitioner of any dietary supplements you are using while pregnant or breast-feeding.

    I believe it would be the additives my friend.

    Let alone the amount of BCAA you are getting in each dose you take of AGENT-M, or XTEND, or any other BCAA product.

    Remember, whatever you intake, your little baby inside you is taking in as well!

    I would recommend consulting a doctor with any supplement, even protein. The reason i say protein because unless its strictly 100% protein with no additives, that protein might have something in it that with effect your babies growth, or otherwise, who knows what could happen.

    Hope my input does you well!

    Cheers!
