    Vitabiotics Pregnacare Plus is a dual pack containing the original multi vitamin and mineral tablet Pregnacare, with an Omega 3 capsule. Each Pregnacare Omega-3 capsule provides per day 300 mg DHA, the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition for pregnant and lactating women The original Pregnacare tablet, as found in Vtabiotics Pregnacare Plus, contains 400mcg of folic acid and 10 mcg of Vitamin D. Pregnacare Plus dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive multivitamin tablet, which delivers the essential nutrients for pregnancy including the recommended level of 400mcg folic acid and 10 mcg vitamin D plus an additional Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.

    Important: Some pregnancy formulas do not include the exact 10 mcg vitamin D, as recommended by the Department of Health for all pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Pregnacare Plus has been specially developed so that mothers-to-be can safeguard their extra dietary requirements, without confusion about which supplements to take.

    Pregnacare Plus contains the following:
    - 28 x Pregnacare multi-nutrient tablets with 400mcg Folic Acid: Pregnacare Tablets contain a careful formulation of 19 nutrients important for both mother and baby. Pregnacare has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive. These include vitamin B12, plus vitamin D and folic acid at the exact level recommended for the development of the unborn baby. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status+. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.

    - 28 x Omega-3 capsules with 300mg DHA: The capsules contain high purity fish oil, which are a rich source of the important Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. DHA is especially important during pregnancy as it contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.

    One Pregnacare Omega-3 capsule per day provides 300 mg DHA, the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition*** for pregnant and lactating women, plus 60mg EPA.
    Pregnacare Plus does not contain fish oil sourced from tuna, shark, marlin or swordfish. The UK FSA advises pregnant women, and women intending to become pregnant to avoid shark, marlin and swordfish and not to eat large amounts of tuna.

    Nutritional Information:
    || Vitamin D in Pregnancy: The Department of Health recommends that all pregnant and breast-feeding women take a supplement containing 10mcg vitamin D, which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare.

    || Vitamin E in Pregnancy: Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Pregnacare contains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg. This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother than synthetic vitamin E.

    || The Importance of Omega-3 fatty acids: Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.

    || Brain and eye development: DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the central nervous system, found in the structural walls of brain cells. Amazingly, the foetal brain is made up of 60% fats of which 40% is DHA. There is a large increase in DHA uptake by the foetus and a corresponding increase in cerebral DHA content during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first post natal months.1,2 At birth the babys brain weight is about 70% of an adults brain weight; 15% of brain growth occurs during infancy and the pre-school years.
    DHA is important throughout this period of development.³ DHA is found in even greater concentrations in the retina, where it contributes up to 60% of the fatty acid content.

    || Maintaining Maternal Health: During pregnancy, the growing foetus and placenta can increase certain maternal nutritional requirements. As it can be difficult to maintain this requirement through diet alone, supplementation with Pregnacare is often recommended by midwives+ to safeguard a mothers diet.

    || Quality and purity guaranteed: What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil produced in Norway, has been used in Pregnacare Plus capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.

    || Natural lemon oil is included in the shell of Pregnacare Plus capsules as an odour-mask for women who find it difficult to take fish oil supplements.
