Vitabiotics Pregnacare Original 30 Tablets

EGP 350.00

Expert nutrition for mother and baby

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 400µg folic acid and 10µg vitamin D, as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Pregnacare 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 folic acid & vitamin D

The UK Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400µg 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. 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.

Important: Some pregnancy formulas do not include the exact 10 µg vitamin D, as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

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. 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.

Pregnacare avoids high dose iron which is not recommended

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.

Before conception

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.

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 and contributes to normal blood formation. You can start taking Pregnacare at any point during pregnancy.

Specially formulated by experts

Pregnacare has been formulated by experts to help safeguard a mother’s diet during pregnancy. It provides a comprehensive spectrum of essential nutrients at carefully chosen safe levels, developed on the basis of international research. It has always contained the recommended level of 400µg folic acid**. Pregnacare is proud to work in partnership with the Royal College of Midwives to support the health of mothers and babies by raising awareness of the benefits of good nutrition.

†The beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400µg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.

** Folic acid contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Pregnacare has always contained 400mcg folic acid, the level recommended for all women from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy.

Pregnacare Plus dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive multivitamin tablet, which delivers the essential nutrients for pregnancy including the recommended level of 400µg folic acid and 10 µg vitamin D as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding, plus an additional Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.

Important: Some pregnancy formulas do not include the exact 10 µg vitamin D, as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

Pregnacare Plus has been specially developed so that mothers-to-be can safeguard their extra dietary requirements, without confusion about which supplements to take.

Pregnacare Plus Provides

Pregnacare multi-nutrient tablets with 400µg Folic Acid

Pregnacare Tablets contain a careful formulation of 19 nutrients important for both mother and baby. Pregnacare has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive. These include vitamin B12, plus vitamin D and folic acid at the exact level recommended for the development of the unborn baby. 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.

Omega-3 capsules with 300mg DHA

The capsules contain high purity fish oil, which are a rich source of the important Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. DHA is especially important during pregnancy as it contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.

One Pregnacare Omega-3 capsule per day provides 300 mg DHA, the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition*** for pregnant and lactating women, plus 60mg EPA.

The Pregnacare Plus Omega 3 capsule contains the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, certified for sustainability by Friend of the Sea. The capsules do not contain fish oil sourced from tuna, shark, marlin or swordfish. The UK FSA advises pregnant women, and women intending to become pregnant to avoid shark, marlin and swordfish and not to eat large amounts of tuna.

Vitamin D in Pregnancy

The UK Department of Health advises a supplement of 10µg vitamin D during pregnancy and breast-feeding, which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare.

Vitamin E in Pregnancy

Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Pregnacare contains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg. This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother than synthetic vitamin E.

The Importance of Omega-3 fatty acids

Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.

Brain and eye development

DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the central nervous system, found in the structural walls of brain cells. Amazingly, the foetal brain is made up of 60% fats of which 40% is DHA. There is a large increase in DHA uptake by the foetus and a corresponding increase in cerebral DHA content during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first post natal months.1,2 At birth the baby's brain weight is about 70% of an adult's brain weight; 15% of brain growth occurs during infancy and the pre-school years.

DHA is important throughout this period of development.3 DHA is found in even greater concentrations in the retina, where it contributes up to 60% of the fatty acid content.

Pregnacare Max offers the ultimate formula in the range for mums-to-be who want the maximum nutritional support from Pregnacare. This advanced formula helps to safeguard daily intake of important nutrients during pregnancy. The dual pack provides 400µg folic acid the exact level recommended by the UK Department of Health, incorporating the special, readily bioavailable form L-Methylfolate. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status*.

It includes other essential vitamins and minerals, including 10µg vitamin D as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding and 500mg calcium. The pack also contains a 300mg Omega-3 DHA capsule for normal foetal brain & eye development**.

Expert postnatal nutrition for mums

Pregnacare New Mum provides a carefully balanced, comprehensive formulation of micronutrients to help support the nutritional requirements of new mothers throughout the postnatal period.

It is ideal to be taken at any point after pregnancy with specific nutrients to help maintain normal energy release plus skin & hair health.

The advanced formula provides nutrients including vitamin B12 and iron which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. The formulation also includes ingredients such as Marine Collagen, Citrus Bioflavonoids and Grape Seed Extract, plus essential vitamins and minerals.

The health of our skin and hair will vary over the course of our lives and perhaps the time you will notice the greatest changes will be after pregnancy and childbirth.

Hair Health
The changes which occur throughout pregnancy and after childbirth may have an impact on hair condition. Having a healthy head of hair and a healthy scalp begins with the proper nutritional building blocks. Supplementation can therefore play an important role in safeguarding an individual's nutritional intake after childbirth. Pregnacare New Mum includes zinc and selenium which contribute to the maintenance of normal hair.

Skin Health
Pregnacare New Mum includes biotin and niacin (vitamin B3) which contribute to the maintenance of normal skin health plus vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin.

All Round Health & Energy Release
Pregnacare New Mum contains B complex vitamins, including vitamin B2, B3, B12, pantothenic acid, folic acid and biotin to help support normal energy release, especially important following childbirth. Vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid also contribute to the normal formation of red blood cells, plus iron which contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin, which helps to transport oxygen around the body.

It's well known that Folic Acid is important for pregnant women, but did you also know that this essential B Vitamin also supports cardiovascular health in women and men?** Folic Acid is part of a triad of B Vitamins - along with Vitamins B-6 and B-12 - that helps promote heart health.** Folic Acid also promotes nervous system health, supports energy metabolism, and plays a significant role in the formation of new cells.** Directions: For adults, take one (1) tablet daily, preferably with a meal.
