Revital Essence: Elevating Postnatal Support with Our Enhanced Formula
Zita West products have been supporting individuals and couples throughout their fertility and pregnancy journey for over 20 years. We believe that continual improvement supported by the latest clinical research, as well as real-life experience and feedback from customers is vital to ensure you and your growing infant receive the best possible nutrition to support your wellbeing and optimise their first 1000 days.
We are thrilled to announce an exciting formulation update to our postnatal range.
Reduced capsule intake
One major change we've implemented is reducing the capsule intake from 3 capsules to 2 capsules. We understand the challenges many mothers face, juggling looking after your newborn as well as yourself. Our aim is to simplify your routine while ensuring you still receive the optimal dosage of essential nutrients, in a high-quality supplement.
In our commitment to provide the best care for you and your growing baby, we’ve taken this opportunity to streamline our range. This ensures that you receive the most crucial vitamins and minerals in the right doses at each unique stage of your fertility journey. The fourth trimester brings a particular set of needs and challenges for both Mum and baby. Several nutrients play a vital role in helping your body recover from labour, and if you choose to, support your breastfeeding journey.
Key nutrients during the postnatal period
Now, let’s dive into the vital nutrients during the fourth trimester.
Iron: Postpartum fatigue is common, and iron becomes a key player in replenishing your energy levels. Supporting the production of red blood cells, iron aids in the recovery process, ensuring you feel your best as you navigate the demands of new motherhood.
Calcium and Vitamin D: Whether breastfeeding or not, maintaining strong bones is crucial. Calcium and vitamin D contribute to bone health, providing a foundation for your well-being during this transformative time. If you choose breastfeeding, these nutrients become even more essential to compensate for any potential depletion.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 plays a vital role in maintaining energy levels and preventing fatigue. Whether you're navigating sleepless nights or managing the myriad tasks of caring for a newborn, ensuring sufficient vitamin B12 supports your overall vitality.
Vitamin C: Support collagen synthesis, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness. This supplement provides targeted nourishment for your skin's recovery, especially during this transformative phase.
Zinc: Aids in wound healing and supports immune function. This nutrient can play a vital role i addressing skin-related concerns and promoting the overall health of your skin postpartum.
Iodine: Adequate iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones, crucial for a mother's well-being. For those breastfeeding it’s intake is crucial as it contributes to the development of the baby's brain and nervous system, supporting their growth and overall health during the postnatal period.
Do I need anything else aside from Revital Essence?
Alongside Revital Essence we also recommend the following supplements to further support your journey:
Vital DHA: Omega-3 fish oil provides the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3s are renowned for their mood-supporting properties. The postnatal period can bring a range of emotions, and incorporating omega-3s may contribute to mental well-being, potentially reducing the risk of postpartum blues. If you're breastfeeding, these nutrients pass through breast milk, directly benefiting your baby. Your nutritional choices impact the quality of the breast milk, offering your little one a nourishing start in life.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is indispensable for bone health, playing a crucial role in calcium absorption. If you're breastfeeding, ensuring sufficient vitamin D is vital for your baby's skeletal development.
Psyllium husk: During pregnancy, there are several changes that occur in the gut microbiome to facilitate the growth of the foetus. Psyllium husk is a natural fibre that can aid in maintaining gut health and easing constipation during pregnancy.
Lactakalm: For those breastfeeding, your breastmilk has a unique microbiome that supports the infants gut microbiome. If this microbiome becomes imbalanced it can cause pain and may lead to stopping breastfeeding earlier than planned. Lactakalm contains a strain of bacteria isolated from healthy breastmilk to support your breastfeeding journey.
