Pregnancy Nurture Blend
This blendt contains a unique blend of nutrients to help support you and your baby through conception and pregnancy. Designed by nutritionists, we have included Department of health recommended levels of Vitamin D and folate (folic Acid)3, plus DHA from algae, organic kale and spinach powders. Folate supplements have been shown to increase maternal folate status. Having a low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus1. Vitamin D contributes to normal bones, teeth and muscle function1.
Folate or folic acid? Folate is the natural form of Vitamin B9 as found in foods, folic acid is a synthetic version often used in supplements8. At Fushi, we always prefer to choose the natural option whenever possible, and we have therefore used the premium source of this vitamin, Methyltetrahydrofolate, in our Pregnancy Nurture blend.
We have included iron, which has a role in the process of cell division, and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Iron can also contribute to normal cognitive function and normal function of the immune system, all-important in pregnancy1. The form of iron we have included has also been shown to be gentler on the stomach during pregnancy10.
The Seagreens® in Fushi Pregnancy Nurture blend provides iodine at 200 µg/day, this is the higher amount recommended by the European Food Safety Authority for pregnancy7. Iodine contributes to normal thyroid function, cognition and functioning of the nervous system1. Because of the natural habitat in which these are grown, there is the possibility of cross contamination with allergens, please see ‘May also contain’ statement underneath the ingredients listing.
For extra support at a time when you may be feeling morning sickness or other gastrointestinal discomfort, this unique blend contains organic ginger that has been shown to help reduce nausea during pregnancy11. It also contains 200 million Bacillus coagulans live bacterial spores, which have been shown to better survive the acid conditions found in the stomach than the bacterial themselves9.
Suitable for use throughout pregnancy.2
Your doctor may tell you to take a higher dose of folic acid if there's a higher risk of neural tube defects during your pregnancy. You may have a higher risk if you have had a pregnancy affected by a neural tube defect, if you, your partner have a neural tube defect or a family history of neural tube defects, if you have diabetes or are very overweight, if you have sickle cell disease of are taking certain epilepsy medicines or you take anti-retroviral medicine for HIV. If these apply to you, you should speak to your GP.
If you’re vegan or need to follow a significantly restricted diet due to religious or ethical choices, food intolerance or allergy, talk to your GP or midwife about the best way to ensure you get all the essential nutrients in pregnancy, and ask to be referred to a dietitian3.
