28 x Pregnacare® multi-nutrient tablets with 400mcg Folic Acid
Pregnacare® Tablets contain a careful formulation of 19 nutrients important for both mother and baby.
These include vitamin B12 and folic acid at the exact level recommended for the development of the unborn baby.
Pregnacare® has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive.
28 x Omega-3 Marine Oil capsules with 300mg DHA
The capsules contain high purity fish oil, which are a rich source of the important Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.
DHA is especially important during pregnancy as it contributes to normal brain and eye development of the Foetus.
One Pregnacare® Omega-3 Marine Oil capsule per day provides 300 mg DHA, the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition*** for pregnant and lactating women, plus 60mg EPA.
Pregnacare® Plus does not contain fish oil sourced from tuna, shark, marlin or swordfish.
The UK FSA advises pregnant women, and women intending to become pregnant to avoid shark, marlin and swordfish and not to eat large amounts of tuna.
Vitamin D in Pregnancy
The Department of Health recommends that all pregnant and breast-feeding women take a supplement containing 10mcg vitamin D, which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare®.
Vitamin E in Pregnancy
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Pregnacare® contains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg.
This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother than synthetic vitamin E.
One tablet and one capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking Pregnacare® Plus with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea which is sometimes experienced if supplements are taken on an empty stomach. Pregnacare® Plus should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Pregnacare® Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet and capsule. We do not recommend chewing the tablets or capsules because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations.
