Vitabiotics Pregnacare Original
For a good nutrition for mother and baby
The Pregnacare Original supplement contains a formula consisting of 19 very important vitamins and minerals. Pregnacare contains 400mcg of folic acid and 10mcg of vitamin D - the same amount as recommended by the UK Department of Health.
This formula has been prepared by experts in such a way that all the ingredients are at safe levels for the health of the mother and baby.
Recommended amounts of folic acid and vitamin D.
The UK Department of Health recommends a daily dose of 400mcg of folic acid for expectant mothers from the moment they try to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is exactly the amount that Pregnacare contains.
Folic acid supplementation increases folate levels in mothers. A low folate level is a risk factor for developing problems in the brain, spine and spinal cord in the fetus. Folic acid comes to the rescue even after the 12th week as it contributes to the growth of mammary glands during pregnancy.
Important: Some pregnancy supplement formulations do not include the exact amount of vitamin D (10mcg) recommended by the UK Department of Health for all pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.
More than folic acid - with vitamin B12 and important minerals
Many studies have shown the importance of getting the right amount of a number of vitamins and minerals throughout pregnancy but also as further care. Pregnacare provides a variety of nutritional supplements for the widest possible coverage of mothers' needs, but all in carefully balanced amounts. Pregnacare contains vitamins B2, B6 and B12 that help in the healthy formation of red blood cells.
Pregnacare avoids high doses of iron that are not recommended
Unlike many prenatal iron supplements, Pregnacare is specifically formulated with a moderate level of iron. High iron levels are not recommended unless required by your doctor.
Pregnacare is also recommended before pregnancy so that the body accumulates reserves of necessary nutrients such as iron. This is necessary to prepare the body for the increased demands during pregnancy. Certain nutritional supplements such as folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc are especially important in the early stages of pregnancy. Zinc helps normalize fertility while vitamin B12 helps in the healthy formation of red blood cells and has a role in the process of cell division.
For the whole pregnancy
A good and complete nutrition with all the necessary nutritional supplements is important not only in the first 12 weeks of port throughout pregnancy. Use of Pregnacare can be started at any time during pregnancy.
