The Prenatal by moode
And why they're recommended in preconception,
pregnancy + postpartum
Every daily dose contains:
Vit. B1- Thiamine Hydrochloride 5.78mg
(equiv. 5mg Thiamine):
Supports reproductive function, cellular differentiation and proliferation, and normal hormonal processes during gestation.
Vit. B2- Riboflavin 20mg:
Supports optimal skin, eye, bone, muscle and nerve health and development.
Vit. B3- Nicotinamide 25mg:
Breakthrough research suggests this vitamin can potentially treat the molecular deficiencies which cause miscarriages and birth defects. This discovery has been likened to the revolutionary breakthrough relating adequate folate levels to neural tube defect prevention.
Vit. B5- Calcium Pantothenate 21.84mg
(equiv. 20mg Pantothenic acid):
Essential for adrenal cortex function and helps produce crucial pregnancy hormones. Those who have taken the pill prior to conception are at an increased risk of deficiency.
Vit. B6- Pyridoxine Hydrochloride 25mg + Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate monohydrate 16.12mg
(equiv. 30.86 Pyridoxine):
Supports growing brain and nervous system development of fetus. A recommended dosage range of 30mg+ can alleviate symptoms of nausea and vomiting.
Deficiency is common in pregnancy, but Biotin is required to regulate gene expression. It’s also important for hair health.
Vit. B12- Mecobalamin
(co- methylcobalamin) 200mcg:
Supports fetal brain development, cell differentiation and the formation of the fetus’s organs.
(equiv. 500mcg Folinic acid)
Arguably the most famous prenatal nutrient, supplementing with folate prevents the development of hyperhomocysteinemia- a condition which can influence developmental abnormalities, particularly neural tube defects in the developing fetus. We’ve chosen to use the Folinic acid form of folate, due to its increased bioavailability.
Choline Bitartrate (300mg)
Essential for embryonic brain development, liver and placental function, Choline is also now recognised as important for the development of the neural tube. Supplementation is important as approximately 90%–95% of pregnant women consume less choline than recommended. And most prenatal vitamins don’t put in nearly enough to do the job.
(Vit. D3 1000IU) 25mcg
An important nutrient in establishing a pregnancy, Vitamin D supports fetal growth and development. It’s essential to the formation of strong healthy bones in both mother and baby, maintains health skin and improves immune function and muscle strength.
Ascorbic acid 100mg:
This antioxidant assists with collagen synthesis, which forms all connective tissue including skin, tendons, cartilage and teeth.
Vit. K as Phytomenadione 60 micrograms:
Essential for blood clotting. Supplementation can improve bone health and reduce the risk of bone-related pain as the maternal skeleton changes in preparation for birth.
Potassium iodide 353.7mcg
(equiv. 270mcg Iodine):
An essential nutrient for fetal growth and brain development, Iodine is required for maternal thyroid hormone production.
Magnesium amino acid chelate 125mg
(equiv. 25mg Magnesium):
Necessary for every major biological process, with low Magnesium status associated with hypertension, pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, leg cramping, and preterm labour.
Manganese amino acid chelate 10mg
(equiv. 1mg Manganese):
Supports cartilage and bone development.
(equiv. 30mcg Selenium):
This antioxidant helps to regulate thyroid hormone synthesis and general immune responses.
Zinc Citrate Dihydrate 38.34mg
(equiv. 12mg Zinc):
Important for overall fertility, as a key nutrient during embryogenesis, fetal growth and development.
