Our Honest Opinion
There is strong scientific evidence to suggest that folic acid is an essential nutrient during pregnancy. It is required for DNA replication and as a substrate for a range of enzymatic reactions involved in amino acid synthesis and vitamin metabolism. Demands for folic acid increase during pregnancy as it is required for the development of the foetus. Folic acid deficiency has been linked with abnormalities in both mother and foetus, such as neural tube defects.
Supports healthy foetal cognitive development
This product contains methylfolate, the most biologically available form of folic acid, which is essential to support healthy cognitive development. It works in conjunction with minerals and other B vitamins to support normal cell growth and cardiovascular, neurologic and immune health. Our prenatal formula also contains the active form of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin, which may help support healthy foetal development and energy metabolism.
Helps relieve nausea and vomiting associated with morning sickness
Prenatal contains ginger extract and vitamin B6, which have been shown to help women with the symptoms associated with morning sickness, known to affect around 80% of pregnant mums. This can help women avoid medication such as anti-sickness drugs.
Supports a nutritionally healthy pregnancy
The well-balanced vitamin B complex included in this formula is complete with riboflavin and B6, plus additional biotin to support healthy growth and development. Beta-carotene and vitamin C provide antioxidant support, supporting a healthy immune system and cellular integrity. Both mum and baby are supported through the 9-month pregnancy term.
May help prevent gestational diabetes
Gestational diabetes can occur during pregnancy when your body is unable to regulate blood sugar properly. There is evidence that chromium and inositol help with insulin sensitivity, thereby reducing insulin resistance and the risk of diabetes.
