Pregnacare Plus Tablets with Omega 3 are the ideal formula for every stage of pregnancy - from before conception, throughout pregnancy and whilst breast-feeding. The dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive vitamin supplement, which delivers all the essential nutrients for pregnancy including the recommended level of 400mcg folic acid.

Pregnacare Plus Tablets with Omega 3 has been carefully developed to help safeguard your dietary needs from pre-conception, during pregnancy and through to the end of breastfeeding and can be taken at any point during pregnancy.  

Pregnacare Plus contains:

28 x Pregnacare multi-nutrient tablets with 400mcg Folic Acid
Pregnacare Tablets contain a careful formulation of 19 nutrients vital for both mother and baby. These include vitamin B12 and folic acid at the exact level recommended for the development of the unborn baby. Pregnacare has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive. Some pregnancy multivitamins lack all the important basic minerals such as essential zinc and iron, however with Pregnacare you can be sure of the minerals you need to safeguard the diet, all at sensible, moderate levels.
28 x Omega-3 Marine Oil capsules with 300mg DHA
The capsules contain special high purity fish oil, which are a rich source of the important Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. DHA and EPA are especially vital during pregnancy as they are the building blocks of the baby's eyes and brain. DHA is the most important fatty acid required for healthy brain and eye development of the foetus. Each capsule also contains 60 mg EPA, which helps to maintain optimum brain function and cell signalling.

Why has Pregnacare Plus been developed?

During pregnancy, your baby is totally reliant on what you eat as their only source of nourishment. So even with a good diet, extra specific nutrients may be very important around the time of pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus one a day dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive Pregnacare multivitamin tablet including 400?g folic acid plus a specially developed Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and arachidonic acid (AA) for healthy foetal brain and eye development. Pregnacare Plus contains the recommended* 300mg DHA for pregnancy and lactation.

Why are Omega-3 fatty acids important?

Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA, EPA and AA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA. These fatty acids are especially important during pregnancy as they form the building blocks of the baby's eyes.

When is Pregnacare Plus recommended?

Pregnacare Plus is recommended as soon as you start trying to conceive to help safeguard your nutritional needs before you find you are pregnant; throughout the whole of your pregnancy when specific nutrients are vital to the healthy development of your baby; and also whilst breast-feeding when extra demands are placed on your body. Pregnacare Plus can be used for as long as required, and can be started at any point during pregnancy.

What do I need to know before starting to use Pregnacare Plus?

Pregnacare Plus has been carefully developed by a team of medical experts including highly qualified pharmacists and medical consultants, and is based upon solid scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women from before conception, throughout pregnancy and whilst breast-feeding. Pregnacare Plus is a multivitamin,mineral dietary and fish oil supplement formulated to safeguard the nutritional needs of mother and baby. Pregnacare Plus replaces your usual daily multivitamin. Your doctor may wish to prescribe an additional iron supplement after the 13th week of pregnancy, which may be taken with Pregnacare Plus. [Top]

I have been recommended by my midwife/G.P. to take a supplement containing 400 mcg of folic acid per day, only for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Is it safe to take a supplement containing folic acid (like Pregnacare Plus ), after this time?

It is perfectly safe to take 400 mcg of folic acid per day throughout the whole of pregnancy. The U.K. Department of Health's Chief Medical Officer recommends that women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement containing 400 mcg folic acid daily, from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. Folic acid is vital during this period for the normal, healthy development of your baby's neural tube and nervous system. However, folic acid can be taken throughout pregnancy, not just up to the 12th week of pregnancy, since it plays other important roles later in pregnancy such as helping blood formation in both mother and baby. Folic acid on its own or within Pregnacare Plus may therefore be taken throughout pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus gives the advantage of not only providing folic acid, but other essential nutrients as well.

How and when should Pregnacare Plus with Omega 3 be used?

One tablet and one capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with a full glass of water or a cold drink. Taking Pregnacare Plus with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea which is sometimes experienced if supplements are taken on an empty stomach. Pregnacare Plus should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Pregnacare Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet and capsule. We do not recommend chewing the tablets or capsules because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations.

Caution before taking Pregnacare Plus Omega 3 Tablets:

  • Always read the product directions before use.
  • Do not exceed the recommended intake.
  • As with other food supplements seek professional advice before using if you suffer from food allergies, and consult your doctor or pharmacist if your have an underlying medical condition (e.g. diabetes, epilepsy, hyperthyroidism), or if on medication.
  • Vitamin supplements are not intended to treat or prevent any disease.
  • Food supplements must not replace a balanced and varied diet, and a healthy lifestyle.

Not sure how you can tell if these are working without doing a full blood work. But the price was ok.
