Swisse Pregnancy Ultivite 60 capsules
Swisse Pregnancy + Ultivite is an advanced pregnancy multivitamin formulated to support dietary requirements from pre-conception right through to pregnancy then to the end of breast-feeding. The scientifically researched formulation has been carefully developed by experts and includes B12 and zinc, required for foetal development, iron and B vitamins for blood formation, and betacarotene, which can be naturally converted into vitamin A as needed by the body. It also includes folic acid for the healthy development of the neural tube and nervous system as well as foetal growth and cell division from a single cell to a fully developed baby.
Swisse Pregnancy + Ultivite contains premium quality ingredients to provide essential nutrients for the mother and her developing baby, during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
This comprehensive, one-a-day formula contains 24 nutrients including vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids for nutritional support.
The benefits of supplementing the diet with omega-3 DHA during pregnancy have been well researched. Omega-3 DHA plays a vital role in the healthy development of the baby's eyes, brain and nervous system. The developing baby relies solely on the mother for supply of omega-3. Swisse Pregnancy + Ultivite includes a dose of omega-3 to help meet the mother and baby's needs.
The Swisse Pregnancy + Ultivite formula includes the recommended dose of folic acid, which may reduce the risk of birth defects such as spina bifida or neural tube defects. It also contains iodine for the development of the baby's brain, eyesight and hearing. Certified organic spirulina and grape seed extract are also included as a rich source of antioxidants. The wild tuna oil in Swisse Pregnancy + Ultivite is sourced sustainably.
Adult Dosage: One capsule daily, during or immediately after a meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
