Pregna-Plan is a comprehensive, specifically formulated, pregnancy multivitamin and mineral for use during all stages of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Wholefood nutrients with optimum levels of many nutrients. Most bioeffective forms - with methylfolate, K2, P5P and B12. Gentle & easily absorbed. With food iron - gentle and non-constipating. Suitable for Vegans.
- Within the pregnancy multivitamin, folic acid is provided in the form of methylfolate.
- Folate contributes to normal maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Supplemental folate intake increases maternal folate status. Increasing maternal folate status contributes to the reduction of the risk of Neural Tube Defects (NTDs)
- Maintaining good levels of the mineral iron is important for women during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Iron is essential for the foetus and new-born baby too, in particular iron contributes to cognitive development in children
- The mineral calcium is in great demand during pregnancy. As the foetus begins to develop, the mother’s stores of calcium are drawn upon. Calcium is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children
- Vitamin D is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in children. Vitamin D3 is the most bioavailable form of this nutrient and the form provided in our pregnancy multivitamin
- The mineral iodine contributes to normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function. Iodine also contributes to growth in children
- Pregna-Plan contains all eight of the important B-complex vitamins plus PABA. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Vitamin B12 contributes to the process of cell division. Both vitamins B12 and B6 contribute to normal red blood cell formation.
- Vitamin B12 is provided in the form of methylcobalamin in our pregnancy multivitamin
- Zinc contributes to DNA synthesis, protein synthesis and cell division, which are all relevant for growth and development of the foetus. It also contributes to normal fertility and reproduction
- Pregna-Plan contains beta carotene (the precursor to vitamin A). Beta Carotene is considered safer than taking vitamin A during pregnancy as the body only converts the amount it needs.
