During trimester one, your body is laying the foundation for a healthy pregnancy. The neural tube, which forms your baby's brain and spinal cord, is developing. Vital Essence 1 contains the NHS recommended intake of Folic Acid (400μg), in the active form Folate to reduce the risk of neural tube defects.
Iron plays a vital role in building your blood supply and ensuring your baby gets the oxygen it needs, whilst reducing tiredness and fatigue. Iodine steps in to support proper thyroid function—vital for the early stages of growth. Towards the end of the first trimester, your infant starts laying down their bones and Calcium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
This period of rapid growth demands more than a standard diet can provide. Vital Essence 1 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 1st 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 1 is safe to take alongside all Zita West pregnancy supplements (excluding Pregnancy Plan).
