The first three months of pregnancy are in many ways the most crucial stage of a baby’s development – the time when all of his or her organs and systems are forming, as well as hands, feet, and limbs. It is now recognised that a mother’s diet immediately before conception and in the first weeks of pregnancy can influence the way that the embryo develops. Investing at this stage in the best nutrition may not only help support your baby’s start to life, but also give you a better chance of a healthy pregnancy.
The new formulation of Vital Essence 1 supplies all the micro-nutrients that are most important to meet the demands of early pregnancy, including 400ug of Folate (now in the superior L-Methylfolate form and useful for a whole range of cellular activities, not just for helping to minimise the risk of spina bifida) plus lots of protective ingredients such as Beta Carotene (a safe way to help support your intake of Vitamin A), Copper, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc, all of which support normal cell division and help to protect DNA. Take one capsule, three times a day (with food), alongside a good quality diet, to help support the changing demands of your body during the first three months of your pregnancy.
We recommend that it should be taken in conjunction with Vital DHA for maximum benefit to your overall nutrition.
We also have supplements for the second (Vital Essence 2) and third (Vital Essence 3) trimesters
