Pregnacare® prenatal supplement is the most popular and trusted 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, Pregnacare® contains 400mcg folic acid and 10mcg vitamin D3, the exact level as recommended by the UK Department of Health. Pregnacare® has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive.
The UK 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 Pregnacare®. Folic Acid is also beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Important: Some pregnancy formulas do not include the exact 10 mcg vitamin D, as recommended by the UK Department of Health for all pregnant and breastfeeding women.
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. Pregnacare® provides a range of nutrients for overall support, all at sensible, carefully balanced levels, including vitamins B2, B6 and B12 which contribute to normal red blood cell formation.
Unlike many prenatal iron supplements, Pregnacare® 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.
Pregnacare® 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.
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.
Pregnacare® has been formulated by experts and is often recommended by health professionals including midwives* to help safeguard a mother’s diet.
