Vitamin D in Pregnancy
The Department of Health recommends that all pregnant and breastfeeding women take a supplement containing 10mcg vitamin D, which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare®.
Vitamin E in Pregnancy
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Pregnacare® contains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg. This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother than synthetic vitamin E.
The Importance of Omega-3 fatty acids
Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long-chain fatty acids such as DHA.
