Typically recommended at one-tablet-daily, one bottle will provide a 60 day supply and the formula comprises Wholefood minerals that have been hydroponically-grown into a cruciferous vegetable. Pregnancy Support is free from wheat, starch, gluten, milk products (lactose), soy, added sugar, colourings, flavourings, preservatives and guaranteed GMO free. Pregnancy Support contains the following key nutrients.
Folic Acid as Methylfolate - Folic Acid/Folate contributes to normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy and supplemental folate intake increases maternal folate status. Increasing maternal folate status contributes to the reduction of the risk of TD's (Neural Tube Defects).
Vitamin D is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in children; Vitamin D3 is the most bioavailable form of this nutrient and Pregnancy Support contains vitamin D3 at 30µg per tablet.
Maintaining good levels of the mineral iron are important for women during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Iron is essential for the foetus and newborn baby too with iron particularly needed for development of normal cognitive function.
The mineral calcium is in great demand during pregnancy. Intestinal absorption of calcium doubles early in pregnancy, and the mineral is stored in the mother's bones. Later, as the foetus begins to develop, the mother's stores are drawn upon. Calcium is essential for making the baby's bones and teeth.
Magnesium aids in bone growth and is necessary for the proper functioning of muscles
The mineral iodine helps make the thyroid hormones. Suitable iodine levels are important in preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding as the nutrient supports the baby's future neural development.
Pregnancy Support contains all eight of the important B-Complex vitamins plus PABA; B6 vitamin Pyridoxine contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Vitamin B12 contributes in the process of cell division. Both vitamins B12 and B6 are needed for the production of red blood cells during pregnancy.
Selenium is a mineral that plays an important role in our immune system's function and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
The functions of Zinc include growth and human development, the healthy functioning of the immune system, and Zinc Contributes to normal fertility and reproduction
Vitamin C is always important in its protective capacity, the vitamin protects cells and helps keep them healthy.
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Pregnancy Support contains 3mg of Beta Carotene (as Vitamin A) per tablet. The Retinol (A1) form of vitamin A should be avoided in pregnancy and this is the recommendation of the NHS. Beta Carotene is considered safer than taking vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time.
Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting and the maintenance of normal bones. Pregnancy Support contains 60µg of Vitamin K per tablet - in the form of Vitamin K2.
