Intelligent all round nutrition for women
Wellwoman Original is the original vitamin developed just for women and has been formulated for the demands of modern life and to give support to the areas of health which are of most relevance to women. The comprehensive daily multivitamin contains a wide range of nutrients and trace elements including Evening Primrose and Starflower Oil.
Wellwoman contains a spectrum of micronutrients for all-round nutritional support including vitamins B6, B12 and iron which contribute to normal energy release. Folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12 also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Evening Primrose and Starflower Oils are included in Wellwoman along with a wide range of nutrients and trace elements to support the areas of health which are of most interest to women. The formulation contains vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity, plus iron which contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, an important consideration during the monthly cycle. Also includes 400mcg folic acid which contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy which is important if you're planning a pregnancy or there's a chance you might get pregnant.
Looking after your immune health is important throughout the year, not only in the winter months. Wellwoman includes selenium, zinc and vitamin A which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Thiamin (vit. B1) and vitamin B12 also contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Skin, Hair & Nails
Most of us would like a little extra support for our skin, hair and nails. Vitamin C is included in the formulation as it contributes to normal collagen formation. Collagen is the substance that gives skin its elasticity. Plus biotin, niacin (vit. B3), zinc and riboflavin (vit. B2) all contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. Zinc also contributes to the maintenance of normal nails and biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.
Based on years of international clinical research, the comprehensive Wellwoman formula is well balanced, even including the exact level of folic acid recommended by the Department of Health for women from the first day of conception to the twelfth week of pregnancy - because women of child-bearing age sometimes need nutritional support before they even know they are pregnant.
Wellwoman Original is available in the UK from Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Waitrose, supermarkets and pharmacies, health stores including Holland & Barrett. Alternatively order online here.

During pregnancy, we would recommend a multivitamin supplement specially formulated for pregnancy, such as Pregnacare. Pregnacare (from Vitabiotics) contains a careful combination of 19 vitamins and minerals, specially developed for use from before conception, throughout the whole of pregnancy, and also whilst breast-feeding. Pregnacare is recommended as soon as you start trying for a baby. However, there is no problem if you become pregnant whilst taking Wellwoman, since it contains the recommended level of 400 µg folic acid, and vitamin B12. Wellwoman may also be used during breast-feeding if required. [Top]
Generally, Wellwoman may be used alongside medications, because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals, and is free from any drugs or hormones. Wellwoman may also be used alongside the contraceptive pill. For specific advice on taking Wellwoman with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. [Top]
Wellwoman is available in 30 capsules (1 month's supply) and 90 capsules (3 month's supply) packs. It is recommended to take one capsule per day. [Top]
One capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal. Swallow with water or a cold drink, without chewing. Taking the capsule with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Wellwoman should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Wellwoman is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the capsule down, and not tea or coffee, as this may cause the capsule to disintegrate too early. [Top]
Wellwoman has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended capsule intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. [Top]
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases, we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Wellwoman to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. There is no maximum length of time over which Wellwoman may be used. A regular intake is recommended. [Top]
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.[Top]
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
