This formula is an ideal choice for the pregnant woman and lactating mother. As a vitamin and mineral complex, the nutrients are well absorbed and tolerated. In preparation for pregnancy, through pregnancy, and during lactation certain nutrients should be supplied in their optimal form.
Women who have been taking the contraceptive pill often show low nutrient status in the following nutrients, B1, B2, B6, C, Folic Acid and Zinc. Conception that occurs immediately after cessation of the pill increases the risk of malformation or spontaneous abortion. The three most important nutrients during pregnancy are Calcium, Folic Acid, and Iron. Certain B vitamins have of course shown to be protective against neural tube defects and low infant birth weights.
Directions for use: As a food supplement for pregnant and lactating women two (2) tablet daily, preferably after breakfast, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
