Vitabiotics Exports

Pregnancy is a time that places unique demands on a woman’s body.  Midwives and healthcare professionals will recommend an increase in certain essential trace elements, minerals and vitamins and key amongst these, is Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a daily requirement for the growing embryo because the body uses it to create collagen, an essential structural protein which is found in bones, tendons, cartilage and skin.  Vitamin C is also known by another name which is ascorbic acid.  Integral to the process of bone repair and wound healing, Vitamin C helps the body fight infections and protects cells from damage in its role as an antioxidant.  Minerals and vitamins always have interactive links and Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron from vegetable sources.

Source your Vitamin C supplementation from ANP Pharma’s Vitabiotics Exports range designed to support the specific nutritional demands of pregnancy.   Additional Vitamin C requirements vary in pregnancy depending on age.  For women aged 18 or younger, supplementation of 80 milligrams per day is recommended and for women over 18,  a level of 85mg per day is the amount healthcare professionals state will cover the needs of both the mother and the growing baby.  Amounts jump again to 115mg when breastfeeding.

Leafy green vegetable and many fruits – oranges, grapefruit and kiwis – are all a great source of Vitamin C but it can be hard to quantify from diet alone whether you are receiving the correct recommended amount.  Some scientists believe that Vitamin C deficiencies in newborn babies can impede mental development.

The Vitabiotics Pregnacare range from ANP Pharma ensures that all additional nutritional needs are taken care of during the different stages of pregnancy.  Use Vitabiotics Pregnacare alongside a balanced diet for optimum nutrition.  It takes all the worry out of pregnancy.  Find out more at
