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 NTD’s (Neural Tube Defects)
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 fetus begins to develop, the mother’s stores are drawn upon. Calcium is essential for making the baby’s bones and teeth.
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.
