Description

Vegetarian-friendly support for maternal and fetal development
• Helps to reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken daily prior to becoming pregnant and during early pregnancy
• Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.
• Provides 999 IU of vitamin D and 999 mcg of folic acid per daily dose
• Helps to prevent deficiency of calcium, chromium, copper, iodine, magnesium, selenium, zinc, biotin, folate, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D, and
vitamin E and K

As nutrient and energy requirements differ during pregnancy, Pregna Vite provides vitamins and minerals that are suited for proper maternal and fetal health. Vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, magnesium and zinc, are involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and their deficiencies are associated with impaired fetal growth and development. 

Vegetarian diets tend to provide insufficient levels of vitamin B12, which may result in impaired red blood cell formation. Maternal iron levels affect iron stores in the developing fetus and are necessary for the production of hemoglobin.

Calcium demands also increase during pregnancy, leading to enhanced calcium absorption from the intestine and mobilization from bones. Vitamin D helps absorb and use calcium and phosphorus for normal bone mineralization. Deficiency of vitamin D during pregnancy may lead to impaired fetal bone development or osteomalacia, although 600 IU of vitamin D daily helps maximize bone health in pregnant adults. Daily supplementation with 800 mcg of folic acid in the first trimester may help reduce the risk of neural tube defects by nearly 70%.
