regnacareÂ® is the most popular and trusted prenatal supplement by mums to safeguard the diet of those who are planning for pregnancy or are already pregnant. A scientifically developed formulation of 19 important vitamins and minerals, PregnacareÂ® contains vitamin B12 and folic acid at exactly the level recommended by the Department of Health. PregnacareÂ® has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive.
Recommended level of 400mcg folic acid
The Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400mcg of folic acid from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in PregnacareÂ®. Folic Acid is also beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
More than folic acid alone – with B12 and key minerals
Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and as part of an aftercare plan. PregnacareÂ® provides a range of nutrients for overall support, all at sensible, carefully balanced levels.Some pregnancy multivitamins lack all the important basic minerals such as essential zinc and iron, however with PregnacareÂ® you can be sure of the minerals you need to safeguard the diet, all at sensible, moderate levels.
PregnacareÂ® avoids high dose iron which is not recommended
Unlike many prenatal iron supplements, PregnacareÂ® has been specifically formulated with an ideal, moderate level of iron. High levels of iron are not recommended unless there is a particular requirement as identified by your healthcare professional.
PregnacareÂ® is recommended before conception to build up the stores of nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby. Good nutrition is important to help prepare a woman’s body for the additional demands placed on it during pregnancy. Certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception. Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B12 contributes to normal red blood cell formation and also has a role in the process of cell division.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Pregnacare provides essential nutrients throughout pregnancy including folic acid which plays an important role during the full nine months, such as contributing to normal blood formation. You can start taking Pregnacare at any point during pregnancy.
Specially formulated by experts
Optimum nutrition is valuable during breast-feeding, to assist the production of nutritious breast milk and to help replace a mother’s reserves of vitamins and minerals, which may be reduced. Zinc is important for milk production and vitamin K is important to help the baby maintain healthy levels of blood clotting proteins. Antioxidant vitamins in breast milk, such as vitamin E, may also be important for the baby’s immune system.
