Expert nutrition through all of pregnancy

Worldwide studies have shown that additional nutrients such as folic acid and vitamin D are important before and during pregnancy. Pregnacare has been carefully developed to help safeguard dietary requirements, from the start of trying to conceive and throughout the whole of pregnancy.
More than folic acid
Formulated by Vitabiotics' experts with 19 important vitamins and minerals. With 400µg folic acid, the exact daily levels recommended by the UK Department of Health.
Recommended 10µg Vit.D
The UK Department of Health recommends all pregnant and breast-feeding women take a daily supplement containing 10µg vitamin D.
Trusted support for mums
Pregnacare helps to support all round health and wellbeing, with folic acid which contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. The unique formula also includes zinc which contributes to normal reproductive health.
Effective support without excessive levels
To protect your growing child, Pregnacare avoids excessive levels of iron and other nutrients. Pregnacare does not contain vitamin A, as high levels are not advised in pregnancy.

Hazards and Cautions
As with other supplements, seek professional advice before using if you are under medical supervision or suffer from food allergies.
As Pregnacare® contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin) do not take Pregnacare® except on the advice of a doctor. Vitamin K is not known to specifically interact with the action of aspirin or heparin.
This product contains iron, which if taken in excess by very young children may be harmful.
Food supplements must not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
