Advanced form of Folic Acid
Pregnacare Conception Max includes L-Methylfolate, a more advanced, bioavailable form of folic acid. The advanced formulation provides 400µg folic acid, the exact level recommended by the Department of Health for all women who are trying to conceive. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status*. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. As well as playing a role in the process of cell division, folic acid also contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids play important roles in the body, but the body cannot make them so they must come from the diet. Research increasingly shows the importance of essential fatty acids in the development of babies and infants. Before and during pregnancy it is recommended to limit intake of oily fish due to potentially detrimental levels of mercury and pollutant contamination. A purified fish oil supplement is a good solution.
Pregnacare Conception Max includes a high purity Omega-3 capsule which provides DHA and EPA essential fatty acids. During pregnancy maternal intake of DHA contributes to normal foetal brain and eye development.**
The high quality capsules provide GMP grade fish oil, certified for sustainability by Friend of the Sea.
Female reproductive health
Certain nutrients can play a role in helping support reproductive health in women. Pregnacare Conception Max includes zinc which is scientifically proven to contribute to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Recent research using Pregnacare looked at the effect of vitamin D supplementation on vitamin D status in pregnant women (Alhomaid et al. Effect of vitamin D supplementation on vitamin D status in pregnant women: Findings from the MO-VITD study. Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 2020.)Based on this latest scientific research, Pregnacare Conception Max, includes 25µg Vitamin D. The formula also includes vitamin B12, iron, magnesium and vitamin D which have a role in the process of cell division.
All-round nutritional support
Pregnacare Conception Max provides all round support with additional nutrients including biotin & copper which contribute to normal energy release and iron which contributes to the normal function of the immune system & normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Vitamins B6 & B12 are also important to help maintain the normal functioning of the nervous system.
