PRODUCT DETAILS

Pregnacare Gummies

Pregnacare Gummies from the UK’s No 1 pregnancy supplement brand are designed to safeguard the diet throughout pregnancy in a delicious blueberry and strawberry flavour chewable gummy format. Pregnacare Gummies are a scientifically developed formulation of 17 important vitamins and minerals, including 400µg folic acid and 10µg vitamin D, the levels as recommended by the UK Department of Health.

Pregnacare Gummies have been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive. They contain no gelatin, and are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Expert nutrition for mother and baby

Pregnacare Gummies have been developed as an alternative supplement format for those who may have difficulty in swallowing tablets or simply prefer a chewable format in a delicious blueberry and strawberry flavour.

Recommended level of folic acid & vitamin D

The UK Department of Health recommends all women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400µg of folic acid, the amount contained in Pregnacare Gummies.

It is recommended that 400µg of folic acid be taken from the start of trying to conceive until 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 Gummies provides 10 µg per daily intake.

With vitamin B12 and zinc

Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and while you are a new mum.

Pregnacare provides a range of nutrients for overall support, all at sensible, carefully balanced comprehensive levels, including vitamins B2, B6 and B12 which contribute to normal red blood cell formation. Also includes zinc which contributes to normal reproductive health.

Pregnacare avoids high dose iron which is not recommended

Unlike some 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 a healthcare professional.

Specially formulated by experts

Pregnacare has been formulated by Vitabiotics’ experts to help safeguard a mother's diet during pregnancy. Pregnacare provides a comprehensive spectrum of essential nutrients at carefully chosen safe levels, developed on the basis of international research.

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.

For all of pregnancy

Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Pregnacare Gummies provide 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.

 

†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.
