21st Century’s Prenatal contains 800mcg of Folic Acid and other essential minerals throughout pregnancy and during the post natal period for both lactating and non-lactating mothers.
21st Century prenatal vitamins are made for pregnant women to give their bodies the vitamins and minerals needed to begin to plan for pregnancy, for a healthy pregnancy and after pregnancy.
How does it work?
Folic acid: Contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy and helps to prevent neural tube defects (NTDs)-serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly).
Calcium: Helps in growth of skeletal muscles of the fetus and milk production.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine): Helps our bodies to process certain amino acids (proteins), which reduce nausea and vomiting as well as aids in normal functioning of the nervous system.
Iron: Helps your body make more blood red cells. These blood cells carry oxygen to the baby that it needs to develop.
Zinc: Helps to reduce preterm births as it plays many biological functions including protein synthesis, cellular divisions and nucleic acid metabolism.
Vitamin D: Contributes to healthy bone development.
