Why CURA VITA?CURA VITA® is the most popular and trusted prenatal supplement to safeguard the diet of those who are planning for pregnancy or are already pregnant, right through to the end of breast-feeding. A scientifically developed formulation of 19 important vitamins and minerals, CURA VITA® contains vitamin B12, and also includes folic acid at exactly the level recommended for the development of the unborn baby. Other essential vitamins and minerals shown to help maintain a healthy pregnancy are also included. CURA VITA® has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive
Recommended level of 400mcg folic acid
The Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400mcg of folic acid from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in CURA VITA®, but folic acid is also important after the first twelve weeks. As well as helping to maintain normal healthy development of the neural tube and nervous system, folic acid is required for foetal growth and is vital for cell division from a single cell to a fully developed baby.
More than folic acid alone – with B12 and key minerals
Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and as part of an aftercare plan. CURA VITA® provides a range of nutrients for overall support, all at sensible, carefully balanced levels. Some pregnancy multivitamins lack all the important basic minerals such as essential zinc and iron, however with CURA VITA® you can be sure of the minerals you need to safeguard the diet, all at sensible, moderate levels.
CURA VITA® avoids high dose iron which is not recommended
Unlike many prenatal iron supplements, CURA VITA® has been specifically formulated with an ideal, moderate level of iron. High levels of iron are not recommended unless there is a particular requirement as identified by your healthcare professional.
CURA VITA® is recommended before conception to build up the stores of nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby. Good nutrition is important to help prepare a woman’s body for the additional demands placed on it during pregnancy. Certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc, are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception, for neural tube development and cell division.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Iron, B vitamins and folic acid are particularly important for blood formation later in pregnancy, when a mother must produce extra red blood cells for the baby’s new blood supply. CURA VITA® can be started at any point during pregnancy.
Ideal if breast-feeding
Optimum nutrition is valuable during breast-feeding, to assist the production of nutritious breast milk and to help replace a mother’s reserves of vitamins and minerals, which may be reduced. Zinc is important for milk production and vitamin K is important to help the baby maintain healthy levels of blood clotting proteins. Antioxidant vitamins in breast milk, such as vitamin E, may also be important for the baby’s immune system..
