Did You Know?
Pregnancy can be a daunting, amazing, and wonderful time. If you are planning a pregnancy or are already pregnant you may be starting to consider your body's nutritional needs. It's important to make sure your intake of folic acid, zinc, calcium, iron and all essential vitamins and minerals are in plentiful supplies to support you through your pregnancy.
What are the benefits?
Be nutritionally prepared with Nature's Prenatal, specifically formulated for preconception, pregnancy, and nursing, with 800mcg of folic acid providing a balanced combination of vitamins and minerals to support the nutritional needs of both mother and baby. An excellent daily multi vitamin that provides vitamins A, C D, and E plus a range of B vitamins. Antioxidant vitamins A, C and E contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, the normal function of the immune system and a reduction of tiredness and fatigue. B vitamins contribute towards normal energy-yielding metabolism, and the normal function of the immune and nervous systems. Vitamin D has a role in the process of cell division and contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle and bones. Along with important minerals magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper, one tablet of this formula contains 800mcg of Folic Acid. It also contains Ginger root to help soothe the stomach. It’s free of artificial colours, flavours, preservatives, sweeteners, sugar, yeast, gluten, lactose, milk, and wheat.
The Importance of Folic Acid
Nature’s Sunshine, (and many other manufacturers), offer a daily dose of 800mcg (0.8mg) of folic acid in supplements designed for use during pregnancy and preconception. Folic acid is water soluble and is quickly lost from the body. The NHS advices that daily folic acid supplements of up to 1mg are safe.
Here’s what the NHS say about Folic acid: “Folic acid is one of the B-group vitamins and has several important functions. It helps to reduce the risk of central nervous system defects in unborn babies, and it works with vitamin B12 to form healthy red blood cells. Folic acid cannot be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day. Taking 1mg or less a day of folic acid supplements is unlikely to cause any harm.”
The NHS also suggest: “If you have a family history of conditions (known as neural tube defects), you may need to take a higher dose of folic acid, and women with diabetes and those taking anti-epileptic medicines should speak to their GP for advice, as they may also need to take a higher dose of folic acid.
