Who is it for?

In trimester three, your baby is undergoing crucial developments to prepare for birth. Bones are hardening, and vital organs are maturing rapidly. As your baby gains weight, you may feel increased pressure on your abdomen. Simultaneously, your body is gearing up for labour, with the cervix thinning and dilating. It's a period of anticipation and readiness for both you and your baby. 

The demands on your body escalate in the third trimester, emphasising the need for targeted nutrition. Vital Essence 3 steps in to provide the right balance of Iron, Vitamin K2, Choline, Iodine, and Magnesium. Iron sustains your blood supply for the increased demands, while choline supports your baby's brain development. Vitamin K2 ensures proper blood clotting, and iodine maintains thyroid function, crucial for both mother and baby. Magnesium contributes to bone health and muscle function, preparing your body for the physical demands of labour. 

Vital Essence 3 delivers high quality nutrients your body needs in carefully formulated doses. We understand that each trimester brings unique needs. That's why our supplements are backed by the latest clinical research, ensuring you and your baby receive the best support during this dynamic time.

Suitable for daily use by women during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Take 2 capsules per day with a cold drink, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Capsules can be taken together, or dose split during the day. Vital Essence 3 is safe to take alongside all Zita West pregnancy supplements (excluding Pregnancy Plan).
