Recommended Folic Acid level
Pregnacare Conception provides 400µg folic acid, the exact level recommended by the Department of Health for all women who are trying to conceive. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status*. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. As well as playing a role in the process of cell division, folic acid also contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
Female reproductive health
Certain nutrients can play a role in helping support reproductive health in women. Pregnacare Conception includes zinc which contributes to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. The formula also includes vitamin B12, iron, magnesium and 20µg vitamin D which have a role in the process of cell division.
All-round nutritional support
Pregnacare Conception provides all round support with additional nutrients including biotin & copper which contribute to normal energy release and iron which contributes to the normal function of the immune system & normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Vitamins B6 & B12 are also important to help maintain the normal functioning of the nervous system. The formula also includes other key nutrients; Coenzyme Q10, Inositol, N-Acetyl Cysteine and Betacarotene.

The Monthly Cycle & Conception
Did you know that some women can experience irregular cycles when coming off the contraceptive pill, which can last up to six months? The menstrual cycle can also be disturbed by weight loss, weight gain, excessive amount of exercise, physical or emotional upset.
A change in the monthly cycle has been noticed by some women at the same time as using this product. If you experience a delay or change in your monthly cycle, this may not necessarily mean you are pregnant, and it is advised to take a pregnancy test and speak to your doctor or health professional.
Pregnacare Conception is a nutrient based, scientifically researched formula without any drugs or hormones. It contains no ingredients known to cause irregularity in the monthly cycle.
*The beneficial effect is obtained with a supplemental folic acid daily intake of 400mcg for at least one month before and up to three months after conception.
