Vital Essence 3: Elevating Pregnancy 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 pregnancy 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, especially those dealing with morning sickness. 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. Each trimester brings a particular set of needs and challenges for both Mum and baby. During the first trimester, certain nutrients are important for the development and differentiation of various organs, whereas later in pregnancy certain nutrients play a significant role in overall foetal growth as well as brain development.
Our Vital Essence range targets the crucial nutrients at each stage.
Key nutrients during the third trimester
Iron: Iron remains crucial in the third trimester to prevent anaemia and ensure proper oxygen supply to both you and your baby. Adequate iron levels are essential for maintaining energy and stamina during labor.
Magnesium: Magnesium plays a pivotal role in muscle function and relaxation. As labor involves intense uterine contractions, having sufficient magnesium can help ease muscle tension and potentially contribute to a smoother labor experience.
Choline: Choline is a crucial player in the development of the foetal brain and nervous system. During the third trimester, a time of rapid brain growth, choline becomes essential for the formation of neural connections, influencing cognitive function and memory.
Vitamin K2: Vitamin K2 is essential for proper blood clotting. This becomes particularly important during labor, helping to prevent excessive bleeding and ensuring a smooth transition for both the mother and the baby.
Vitamin C: As an immune booster and enhancer of iron absorption, vitamin C helps maintain overall health, especially important during the physically demanding process of labor.
Do I need anything else aside from Vital Essence 3?
Alongside Vital Essence 3, 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-3, particularly DHA, plays a pivotal role in supporting foetal brain and eye development. Its benefits also extend to the mother, helping support mood and overall cognitive function. Vital DHA has been molecularly distilled so it is free of all known contaminates and heavy metals, including mercury.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is crucial for bone health and immune support. Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in the UK, especially during winter when we have to rely on supplementation. Our Vitamin D spray works as a booster to ensure you have optimal levels throughout pregnancy.
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.
So you have one less thing to worry about during your pregnancy journey, we’ve put together all of our recommended products in our Trimester 3 Pregnancy Support Pack.
We understand that every pregnancy journey is unique, and we recognise the need for additional support. Zita West Products offers several additional nutrients that can be added seamlessly into your supplement routine. Including Inositol & Folate for those who are at higher risk of gestational diabetes, NAC for high-risk pregnancies and Folate for those who require a higher dose.
At Zita West Products, we're dedicated to empowering you with a comprehensive approach to prenatal care, delivering the nutrients you need for a healthy and vibrant pregnancy journey.
Before incorporating any supplements into your routine, it is crucial to consult with your healthcare practitioner. They can provide personalised advice based on your individual health status, potential interactions with medications, and specific needs.
