Prenatal Care: Safe and effective multivitamin for pregnant women
Prenatal Care by EssentialSeries is a complete multivitamin developed for use during pregnancy.It's a dietary supplement in vegetable capsules, based on vegan docosahexaenoic acid algae, citicoline (CDP-Choline), calendula extract (with lutein and zeaxanthin), vitamins and minerals in forms of high bioavailability.
Prenatal Care is a specific formula of vitamins and minerals especially intended for pregnant women, whose use can (and this is recommended) be extended until the end of the first postpartum trimester. The amounts used are safe and advised by European and American authority reports for use during pregnancy.
Prenatal Care is suitable for vegan women.
Why buy Prenatal Care by HSN over other multivitamins?
Prenatal Care is the most complete formula to provide the nutrients needed during pregnancy.
An extract with controlled values
The Prenatal Care multivitamin contains calendula extract, an important plant valued for its carotenoid and derivatives content.
The amount of these nutrients in the native plant isn't very high, and adding the normal plant to a capsule wouldn't contribute anything relevant. Other companies do follow these practices, however, meaning they make food supplements with little effect.
In Prenatal Care, we use an extract exclusively of the marigold flower (the part most concentrated in these nutrients), meaning it's 200 times more concentrated! Unbelievable, right?
In addition, the extract ensures the presence of adequate amounts of the most important nutrients of the plant:
- 20% lutein.
- 1.5% carotenoids.
- 1.3% zeaxanthin.
In the prenatal care formula, you'll find premium quality forms of vitamins and minerals, such as:
- Calcium L-Methylfolate, the most effective way to provide folate, nutritionally speaking. It's presented in the form of methylated folate in calcium salt: stable and highly bioavailable.
- Methylcobalamin is an active version of vitamin B12, unlike others such as cyanocobalamin, which requires internal methylation processes to optimally exploit its properties.
- Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), a superior presentation to ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) to improve the body's vitamin D intake.
- K2-MK7 (vitamin K2), the presentation of menaquinone length 7 (MK-7) and natural form of high bioavailability K2, not K1.
- Chelated minerals: such as iron and zinc bisglycinates. Albion™ Minerals raw material. It also uses chelated copper.
With Albion™ minerals
The iron used in the formula is Ferrochel™:
And the Zinc is Albion™ Minerals raw material from the Balchem laboratory:
Balchem has become famous for the development of its Albion minerals in the form of fully chelated salts, which ensures, as the manufacturers themselves indicate:
- Maximum stability and better conservation of the mineral without degradation.
- Complete intestinal absorption and maximum nutritional effectiveness.
- Total use of the mineral quantity used.
- 0 digestive discomfort derived from its consumption.
But it's not just the Albion minerals from Balchem that are high quality.
Prenatal care uses the nutritional reference forms of vitamins and minerals according to the guidelines of food safety authorities.
Vitamin A intake during pregnancy is a delicate issue, as while large doses of vitamin A are not recommended during the period, you still need to provide vitamin A through the diet, as it's an essential nutrient for both mother and baby.
To meet vitamin A needs, it’s best to use a precursor form: beta-carotene, which is the form of vitamin A most recommended for use during pregnancy, as the body itself converts and uses the amounts of active retinol it needs from carotenes, and what is not active is simply eliminated from the body.
At HSN, we carry out in-depth analyses of the scientific literature to develop the most effective and safe dietary supplements.
Prenatal Care Properties. A unique multivitamin
Prenatal care provides you with all the vitamins you need during pregnancy, as well as important nutrients in their recommended daily dose according to international reference guidelines.
It contains all vitamins, both water-soluble and fat-soluble, that you need to consume daily.
For example, you'll find vitamin A, which also has positive effects on iron metabolism, which is incredibly important during pregnancy and also helps to support a good general state of health.
Others, such as vitamin B12, help reduce tiredness and fatigue, a common condition during pregnancy and after birth.
You'll find important nutrients such as iron, which contributes to normal oxygen transport; zinc, which is important for normal fertility and reproduction; and iodine, which contributes to normal thyroid hormone production.
Among others, such as copper, also present in chelated form, and chromium in the form of picolinate; of high bioavailability.
Such as citicoline (CDP-Choline), the highest nutritional quality form of choline, a nutrient considered semi-essential in Institute of Medicine of America reference guides.
While other manufacturers use forms of choline tartrate, which, unless presented as a single ingredient in large quantities, end up providing a low percentage of choline base, we use the most premium nutritional form of choline: the novel citicoline.
And a key nutrient for pregnancy:
- Maternal intake of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contributes to the normal development of the eyes of the foetus and infants.1
The Prenatal Care formula has been completed with calendula extract, a plant with important fat-soluble pigments, recognised for its wide use in scientific studies.
