Citrus fruits, nuts and cores, yogurt, and garlic have essential vitamins and minerals and it is recommended to be included in the diet at this time. Zinc is the most important mineral for the growth of milk glands and health of reproduction system and DNA structure and cellular proliferation. In this period, the body needs minerals such as iron and zinc and vitamin D3 and folic acid and vitamin C. Group B vitamins at adequate amounts will cause an increase in the growth of the embryo’s brain and mental capacity.

It also contains powerful antioxidants like vitamins C and E, zinc, and selenium, which have a positive impact on the health of mother and fetus. This product helps to supply essential vitamins, micro nutrient and minerals during pregnancy and lactation.

Advantages of Pregnancy Multivitamin Supplex tablets :
1 - Presence of iron in fumarate formulation
The amount of iron that is absorbable in a supplement product is called elemental iron. The amount of elemental iron in the ferrous fumarate supplement is 33%, in ferrous sulfate 20% and in ferrous gluconate 12%.
Iron fumarate has a better gastrointestinal tolerance.
2 - Better absorption of zinc and less digestive complications by using gluconate salt.
Supply of zinc in zinc gluconate formulation is very good for the body and will be tolerated, and it is absorbed well.
Take notice that people who for a long time have a daily zinc consumption of 50 to 300 mg, can experience impaired iron and copper absorption and face the lack of these two salts in the body. It has been observed that even patients who consume 2g zinc per day for a long time, develop symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and fever.
In our product, zinc content is 10mg without any negative impact on the absorption of iron and copper.
3 - Since gluconate salt has fewer gastrointestinal side effects, copper was formulated as gluconate in this product. Although copper deficiency in humans is not very common, but should be taken seriously. Copper deficiency in infants and children is more prevalent. Copper deficiency in the body can be caused by a lack of micronutrients and minerals. Anemia caused by copper deficiency is usually indistinguishable from anemia caused by iron deficiency and in this case a detailed examination is in order.

4 - Vitamin A was formulated as beta - carotene in this product.
Since increased vitamin A storage in the body during pregnancy may cause a defect in the embryo, in people who need to use the vitamin A supplement, taking supplements containing beta carotene instead of vitamin A is recommended because beta - carotene in the body will be converted to vitamin A on demand.
5 - 400 units of vitamin D to supply the body’s needs for this vitamin in pregnancy and lactation period.
6 - 800 µg folic acid to supply the body’s needs for this vitamin in pregnancy and lactation period.
5 - In manufacturing this product, the number of ancillary materials in comparison with the other tablets is less and we have tried to use safer materials.
