Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-feeding Gold has been specially formulated to provide nutrients that support a mother’s health as well as that of her developing baby.
Iodine supports a healthy pregnancy. It is required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which affect almost every cell in the body and regulate oxygen use, metabolic rate and cellular metabolism. Iodine and thyroid hormones are important for the health of children’s skeletal, muscular and nervous systems, and for babies’ brain, eyesight and hearing development
Omega-3 long chain fatty acids are essential for babies’ health. DHA is the predominant long chain fatty acid in breast milk and is also found in fish oil. It supports the normal healthy functioning of your baby's brain and nerves and normal eyesight development
Folic acid (also known as folate) plays a role in the synthesis of genetic material (DNA and RNA), and is required for cellular division. Foetal cells undergo constant cell division, so women require increased levels of folate during pregnancy, and especially in the early days after conception, which are critical for the healthy development of baby’s nervous system
Calcium and magnesium are essential for bone health, and play important roles in healthy muscle and nerve function
Vitamin D3 supports calcium absorption and is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones. Low vitamin D levels are common in women during pregnancy
Iron is a component of haemoglobin, so it’s essential for the formation of red blood cells and helps maintain energy levels. Early foetal brain development also requires adequate iron. Many New Zealand women don’t obtain the recommended amount of iron from their diets, and this situation may be exacerbated by the increased iron requirements of pregnancy
Zinc is essential to good health as it is involved in enzymatic reactions in every cell of the body. Adequate levels of zinc are vital for a healthy baby’s normal growth and development
B-group vitamins play an essential role in baby's growth
