25 essential vitamins and minerals developed specifically for pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding
Our Multi Essentials for Pregnancy has been formulated to provide a comprehensive, high strength multivitamin in a highly absorbable form. We use the active and preferred forms of nutrients to ensure efficacy. Provides support for fertility and reproductive health, energy production and immune support during pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Our pregnancy multivitamin is recommended by The Ribbon Box, in their article on key nutrients in the second trimester. They are a free and supportive community, offering expert advice and guidance on fertility, pregnancy, parenting and wellbeing.
We spent almost 10 years researching and developing how to make a broad spectrum multivitamin product which didn’t compromise on either the quality or quantity of individual ingredients. We refused to launch it until we were satisfied that it was the best in the market place, delivering each of the individual vitamins and minerals in the right amount and best form to make it the most efficacious product. They have been especially formulated for your convenience to mean that you only have to take one tablet per day to get the optimum therapeutic dose.
This unique formula has been specifically designed to contain a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals that are not found in cheaper alternatives including choline, manganese and chromium which supports blood glucose levels.
As well including a wide range of nutrients to support everyday health, our Multi Essentials for Pregnancy includes key ingredients to support women from pre-conception to post-birth breastfeeding.
– Iron bisglycinate is included as many women become anaemic during pregnancy and breastfeeding because of the extra demands placed on the body’s resources. Low iron may contribute to tiredness and fatigue.
– It’s well known that folic acid is important during pregnancy as recommended by the Department of Health, and we have included the recommended amount – 400mcg.
– Iodine is included which supports healthy cognitive function, energy production and thyroid function. Iodine requirements are higher in pregnancy and many pregnant and breast-feeding women suffer with a lack of energy.
We’ve chosen to use the body-ready form of folic acid, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, which bypasses the body’s need to convert folic acid before it can be utilised. This is important as some people have a reduced ability to convert folic acid into the active and useable form.
Taking a high quality multivitamin helps to ensure you have an adequate nutrient status, which is particularly important during pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding, as demands on the body for nutrients are higher. It can be difficult to say how long it may take to feel a difference as it will depend on the individual’s nutrient status, but it’s important to ensure you are taking the correct level of nutrients recommended prior to conception and in pregnancy, such as 400mcg folate, for prevention of neural tube defects. Low iron levels can also be common in pregnancy, with accompanying fatigue, so you may notice an improvement in energy levels once you introduce Multi Essentials for Pregnancy, which contains 18mg iron as glycinate.
It’s important to recognise that multivitamins aren’t miracle tablets, but taking them consistently is key to ensuring a constant and adequate supply of nutrients to the body, particularly if your diet is not as well-balanced as it could be, to help optimise your health and wellbeing.
