We understand that a healthy child is every expectant mother's dream. Unfortunately, pregnancy is often a worrisome time, when the eventual health of the infant seems uncertain. Fortunately, there are methods of minimizing the risk of diseases connected with pregnancy and early childhood. These include an optimistic frame of mind, physical exercise, and a diet varied enough to provide the vitamins and minerals to support the child's very early development.
We Understand Your Needs
Our products have been designed to address the concerns of women approaching childbirth or postpartum care. VITRUM® products, such as VITRUM® PRENATAL and VITRUM® PRENATAL FORTE provide the microelements needed to help minimize the potential harm for both mother and child.
Speak to your doctor about the types of exercise you may indulge in while you are pregnant, and during what phases of the pregnancy you may exercise and in what manner. A healthy and happy mother helps to ensure a healthy and happy baby!
What is Folic Acid?
Our prenatal products, such as VITRUM® PRENATAL FORTE, contain Folic Acid, which is part of the B-complex group of vitamins, which help the body break down carbohydrates into simple sugars to be used for energy. It is found naturally in a number of foods, including leafy green vegetables, spinach and bananas. In some countries it is even mandated by local health authorities for food manufacturers to add synthetic Folic Acid to enriched bread and grain products. Still, it is very difficult to get the recommended daily allowance of 800 micrograms through diet alone.
Why is Folic Acid Important?
Folic Acid is essential for the growth and development of a fetus and the prevention of neural-tube defects such as spina bifida, a condition where the spine fails to close properly, and anencephaly, a usually fatal defect that leads to a baby born with an underdeveloped brain or incomplete skull. Four hundred micrograms of Folic Acid a day, taken a few months before conception through the first several months of pregnancy, can reduce the risk of these defects dramatically.
We realize that this is an important time in your life and the life of your child. Our mission is to provide you with quality products that fully serve both your needs, and the needs of your unborn child, at all stages of your pregnancy.
