Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold is a high quality multivitamin supplement designed for pregnant women. It delivers key vitamins and minerals, plus essential oils, to address the increasing nutritional requirements during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold Health Advantages:
Iodine is an essential mineral working for healthy brain development, including vision and hearing, among babies.
Folic acid is needed for the optimal development of the nervous system in babies.
Tuna oil nourishes the body for the development of the baby's brain and vision. Tuna oil from Blackmores is mercury-tested.
Vitamin D3 promotes the absorption of calcium for the formation of strong bones and teeth.
Blackmores multivitamin delivers 10 vitamins and 6 minerals, consisting of omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium, with a total of 17 nutrients.
Its health action and function:
Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold is rich in folic acid required for the development of the nervous system in babies. Hence, pregnant women often have increased nutritional requirement for folic acid. Folic acid supplements must complement a healthy, balanced diet.
Iodine is helpful in the maintenance of thyroid health and supports its functions. Additionally, iodine is also needed for hormones that promote growth and development of the brain, as well as the sense of sight and hearing, among babies.
Also considered a hormone, vitamin D3, can be obtained from the diet or from sunlight being absorbed through the skin, hence its name as the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D3 promotes enhanced intestinal absorption of both phosphate and calcium while reducing the amounts of calcium excreted in the urine, to make better the strength and density of bones. Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Gold works for optimal calcium absorption in both mothers and their babies for stronger bones and optimal health.
Research studies have proven that omega-3 fatty acids are indispensable for the optimal health of babies primarily due to its support of normal, healthy brain and nerve development, especially by DHA, which is found in breast milk and tuna oil.
Take 2 capsules a day with meals, or as professionally prescribed.
