Vitally Prenatal is a comprehensive multivitamin and mineral supplement specifically designed to support women trying to conceive, while pregnant and breastfeeding, by meeting the increased nutritional requirements to support baby’s healthy development.
— Why take it?
Whilst pregnant, your body's requirement for nutrients can increases by up to 50% and despite the best intentions, it can be difficult to meet these additional nutritional needs through diet alone.
Taking a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement with Iodine, Selenium & Choline can help build up the essential nutrients required to help cover the needs of both mumma and bubba.
— Why ours is special
Vitally Prenatal contains 21 of the best active ingredients for you and your baby. Including iodine, which helps baby’s body to grow and develop, especially the brain. Folic acid, which is clinically proven to reduce the risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida. Iron, to help prevent iron deficiency and, unlike most prenatal supplements, ours contains selenium, which is involved in the regulation of mum’s immune system and thyroid function.
— Unique formula
Our prenatal includes ingredients backed by research that many prenatals leave out. Our aim is to include the best ingredients for mom and baby based on the latest clinical research.
There is strong research to show that choline helps with fetal brain development but most prenatals don't include it.
Selenium has been shown in some studies to decreased TPO antibodies and reduced the risk of thyroid function abnormalities after pregnancy
Iodine is essential for a healthy baby's brain development
— Ingredients key benefits
— Iron demand increases during pregnancy as mum’s blood volume increases, and the increased toll from growing the foetus and placenta. Iron supplementation assists with the prevention of dietary iron deficiency. Iron is also important in the formation of red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body.
— Iodine supports the growth and normal development of a baby’s brain. As requirements increase during pregnancy and breastfeeding it’s important that women in all stages of pregnancy consume adequate levels for their developing baby.
— Folic Acid is a supplemental form of folate. A woman's folate levels can play an important role in the formation of the baby's neural tubes, which form the baby’s brain and spinal cord, essential to the central nervous system.
— Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) plays a major role in the development of your baby’s brain. Our Prenatal covers 100% of the RDI for pregnant woman.
— Vitamin B2, also known as Riboflavin, supports good eye health and has the added benefit of giving your skin a fresh, healthy glow – cue the pregnant glow comments! This is also true for your baby.
— Also known as Pyridoxine, Vitamin B6 supports the development of your baby’s brain and nervous system. For mum it supports normal blood glucose levels and may help with morning sickness.
— Vitamin B7 (Biotin) may help with hair loss, brittle nails and skin rashes during pregnancy, and is an essential nutrient for embryonic growth.
— Vitamin B12 supports energy levels for mums and the development of your baby’s nervous system.
— Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption and metabolisation of calcium and phosphorus, supporting healthy bone development in your baby. It’s a tricky vitamin to get enough of, especially if you don’t get a lot of time in the sun, and unfortunately most of us don’t spend pregnancy at the beach.
— The mineral magnesium performs many important tasks in our body. It supports bone formation, regulates normal energy metabolisation and is involved in the activation of over 600 enzymes. Magnesium also supports normal stress levels and plays a role in our muscles, which may assist with muscle cramps.
— Selenium is an essential trace mineral and antioxidant that supports the immune system and thyroid function during & after pregnancy.
—Choline is a nutrient that supports the development of your baby’s brain and neural tube. It may also help in reducing inflammation.
"A healthy pregnancy and baby is very much dependent on a mum-to-be’s wellbeing. Often though, pregnancy can be the hardest time to keep your intake up! From cravings to fatigue to all-day nausea, getting a well-balanced diet can be a hard slog. I’m a firm believer in supplements during this time. There is too much to worry about without adding diet in there as well!"
