Vitafem – Ingredients and Their Benefits:

B Vitamins – assist with the regulation of hormonal activity and support female hormonal health generally. Easily depleted through stress, alcohol or smoking.
Biotin – important for the maintenance of cellular energy and the normal function of the nervous system. The concentration of biotin in breast milk is 15 times higher than in the mother’s blood, which may suggest a link between Biotin and a baby’s growth and development.
Vitamin C – an important antioxidant which assists in protecting the mother’s DNA from oxidative damage. Also critical for the normal function of a mother’s immune system. Helps with absorption of Iron.
Vitamin D – critical for normal cell division and the proper absorption and utilisation of Calcium and Phosphorus.
Vitamin E – another important antioxidant.
Folate – known to help prevent spina bifida. Works together with Vitamin B12 to ensure healthy cell-division and normal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Iron – important for the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, normal oxygen transport and the propoer functioning of the immune system. Also contributes to cognitive function and healthy cell division.
Magnesium – Important for the synthesis of proteins and maintenance of a healthy maternal metabolism.
Selenium – Antioxidant that helps to protect maternal DNA, as well as proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. Also important for the the normal functioning of the immune and thyroid systems.

FAQ

Do I need to take extra Folic Acid if I am taking Vitafem?

No, not unless your doctor specifically recommends it. Vitafem delivers 400ug of Folate daily, which is widely believed to be the optimal amount for supplementation.

Is there a risk of taking too much Folic Acid?

Vitafem contains 400 ug of Folate, which is well within what is considered safe as a level for daily supplementation. It is perfectly fine to combine Vitafem with our Inositol & Folate formulation (which provides and additional 200ug of Folate per day).

I’ve noticed my urine has turned yellow since taking Vitafem. Is this normal?

Yes, the high levels of B vitamins in Vitafem can cause some people’s urine to turn yellow. If this happens to you, don’t worry, it’s perfectly natural!

Can I carry on taking Vitafem if I am pregnant?

YES, however, it is better to move on to to the Vital Essence range which has been especially formulated for your body’s changing needs during each trimester of pregnancy.

What is “RDA” and why are so many of the ingredients in Vitafem higher than 100%?

“RDA” is an abbreviation of “Recommended Daily Allowance.” The RDA was devised by the Dept of Health in the UK in 1979 to provide guidance on the intake of a limited number of specific vitamins and minerals that an average adult should have daily in order to avoid a deficiency that may lead to disease or general ill-health. Whereas this was, and remains, a useful benchmark for judging the contribution that any supplement may make to reaching those minimum requirements, it wasn’t intended to represent an indication of optimum intake. You will probably have noticed that many supplements, particularly premium priced ones such as our own, contain daily levels that are frequently many times higher than the RDA, sometimes substantially so. This is because the vitamins and minerals concerned have been set at therapeutic levels in an attempt to boost the body’s store of the nutrients concerned, often for a particular and limited period of time, the need for which can of course vary depending on factors such as general health, age etc. It is universally recognised that pregnancy, and preparing for pregnancy, for example, benefit from special attention to nutrition on the part of both partners. All of the formulations within the Zita West range are well within the Government’s guidelines for what represents the upper safe limit (USL) for long term daily supplementation of any given nutrient.

Can I take Vitafem Boost instead of Vitafem?

NO. We usually recommend that all our clients who are trying to get pregnant consider taking, as a first nutritional step, a good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, like Vitafem, to help support their everyday diet. Vitafem has been specifically developed to help protect a woman’s daily intake of those micro-nutrients that we believe are the most important for all- round pre-conceptual health. Vitafem Boost has been developed as a companion product to Vitafem for those of our clients who might also benefit from boosting their intake of antioxidants to help further protect their maternal DNA from oxidative stress. Research suggests that oxidative stress may be associated with an increased incidence of sub-fertility, recurrent miscarriage and IVF failure. Which is why we recommend the product specifically for women who are finding it difficult to conceive rather than those who are just about to try. Because it has been designed as a companion product to Vitafem, it does not duplicate many of the important vitamins and minerals that can be found in Vitafem and it isn’t suitable, therefore, as a substitute for it.
