Expert liquid nutrition for mother and baby
Pregnacare Liquid has been developed as an alternative supplement format for those who may have difficulty in swallowing tablets or simply prefer a liquid format. Providing an ideal alternative to tablets, the great tasting orange flavour liquid is gentle on the stomach.
Recommended level of folic acid & vitamin D
Many experts as well as UK Department of Health recommends all women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400µg of folic acid, the exact amount contained in Pregnacare Liquid. It is recommended that 400µg of folic acid be taken from the start of trying to conceive until (or better, at least!) the 12th week of pregnancy.
Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status†. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. Folic acid is also beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
The UK Department of Health also recommends a daily supplement containing 10 µg of vitamin D should be considered by pregnant women. Pregnacare Liquid provides 10 µg per daily dose.
Before conception and during pregnancy
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. It also includes iodine which is often recommended during pregnancy.
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Pregnacare Liquid provides essential nutrients throughout pregnancy including folic acid which has an important role during the full nine months and contributes to normal blood formation. You can start taking Pregnacare at any point during pregnancy.
