How it works

Ingredients of Pregna START dietary supplement perform many important functions in the human body. Pregna START contains two sources of folic acid, including L-methylfolate calcium, which is an easily and quickly absorbable active form of folate. Supplemental intake of folic acid increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor for the occurence of neural tube defects in the developing foetus [2]. There are many risk factors for the occurrence of neural tube defects and changing one of them may or may not have a positive effect. Folic acid supports the proper functioning of the immune system of the mother-to-be and participates in cell division. Vitamin D3 helps in the proper use of calcium and phosphorus by a woman’s body. Zinc included in Pregna START helps maintain normal female fertility and reproductive functions. Vitamin B12 helps maintain proper energy metabolism and proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems. Vitamin B6 participates in regulating hormonal activity. Folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 participate in maintaining proper metabolism of homocysteine.
