G&G 28 day Pregnancy Supplement Pack
The G&G Pregnancy Pack contains a selection of carefully selected vitamin and mineral supplements to aid in foetal development* and to maintain the ideal balance of nutrients for an expectant mother. It is ideal for taking when trying to conceive, and throughout pregnancy.
FOLIC ACID IN OUR PREGNANCY PACK
The Pregnancy Pack contains an extremely effective form of folic acid. Conventional folic acid is synthetic and is used in many vitamin supplements. We use L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), which is the active form of folic acid and is found in nature. The folic acid found in food has to be digested to be absorbed, and then has to undergo several biochemical conversions in the body to become L-5-MTHF. By supplementing directly with L-5-MTHF (rather than synthetic folic acid), one can be assured of getting the benefits of folic acid, regardless of your ability to absorb or convert it to the active form.
*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. the beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400 mcg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.
WHAT DO YOU GET IN OUR PREGNANCY PACK?
Each sachet contains the following supplements:
1x Folic Acid (5-MTHF) 400mcg Capsule
Folic Acid is a water-soluble nutrient that is part of the vitamin B complex family. It is essential to the formation of red blood cells. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status.
1x Natural Beta-Carotene 15mg Capsule
Our natural beta-carotene supplement is made with Dunaliella salina, a type of micro-algae found in sea salt fields. To survive the salty conditions this micro-algae has high concentrations of beta-carotene to protect against the intense light. We harness the nutrition from the algae within a vegetarian capsule to create a natural healthy supplement that assists in the formation of vitamin A by the human body.
1x Vitamin B Complex with Nicotinamide 50mg Capsule
The B vitamin group are water-soluble, which means the body cannot store them. They must therefore be a standard part of the diet in order to avoid a deficiency. Our high-quality vitamin B-Complex health supplement is a blend of the essential B-vitamins in the ideal ratio for the human body. This includes the six numbered vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12).
1x Vitamin C Complex 500mg Capsule
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and a potent antioxidant. The body cannot store vitamin C, which means it must be a standard part of the diet in order to avoid a deficiency. We use a blend of pure vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) to form our supplement.
1x Natural Vitamin E 400iu Softgel
Vitamin E is a well-known fat-soluble antioxidant. It comes in eight forms, some of which are synthetic, while others are naturally obtained. We use D-Alpha Tocopherol Succinate in our vitamin E supplement. This a natural form of vitamin E.
2x Cal-M 250mg Capsules
Cal-M is a powdered blend of calcium, magnesium and organic cider vinegar, designed to deliver these important minerals as acetates, making them more readily absorbed by the body.
1x Mineral Multi Capsule
Mineral Multi provides a unique blend of 13 essential minerals within a single supplement capsule.
1x Vitamin D3 1000iu Capsule
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient produced naturally by the human body when exposed to the sun. Modern lifestyles have decreased the exposure we get to the sun, which has made it more important to monitor potential deficiency.
