WE ARE THE LARGEST AUTHORIZED SUPPLIERS OF GENUINE & ORIGINAL "VITABIOTICS" IN THE U.K.
From pre-conception, throughout pregnancy and lactation Pregnacare® is the most popular and trusted supplement for mothers-to-be to safeguard their diet, from those who are planning for pregnancy or already pregnant, right through to the end of breast-feeding.
A scientifically developed formulation of 17 important vitamins and minerals, Pregnacare® contains vitamin B12, and also includes folic acid at exactly the levels recommended for the development of the unborn baby.
Other essential vitamins and minerals shown to help maintain a healthy pregnancy are also included.
Recommended level of folic acid
The Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400 mcg of folic acid from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy.
This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in Pregnacare®, but folic acid is also important outside the first twelve weeks.
As well as helping to maintain normal healthy development of the neural tube and nervous system, folic acid is required for foetal growth and is vital for cell division from a single cell to a fully developed baby.
Pregnacare® is therefore recommended throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks.
More than folic acid alone
Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and as part of an aftercare plan.
Pregnacare® provides a range of nutrients for overall support, including natural source vitamin E, which is better absorbed by the mother and transported to the foetus than synthetic vitamin E.
Before conception :
Pregnacare® is recommended before conception for 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, for neural tube development and cell division.
For all of pregnancy :
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Iron, B vitamins and folic acid are particularly important for blood formation later in pregnancy, when a mother must produce extra red blood cells for the baby's new blood supply. Pregnacare® can be started at any point during pregnancy.
Ideal if breast-feeding :
Optimum nutrition is valuable during breast-feeding, to assist the production of nutritious breast milk and to help replace a mother's reserves of vitamins and minerals, which may be reduced. Zinc is important for milk production and vitamin K is important to help the baby maintain healthy levels of blood clotting. Antioxidant vitamins in breast milk, such as vitamin E, may also be important for the baby's immune system.

Pregnacare® has been formulated by experts and is often recommended by health professionals including midwives and nurses to help safeguard a mother's diet.
It provides a complete spectrum of essential nutrients at carefully chosen safe levels, developed on the basis of international research both recently and over the past 20 years.
