Pregna Start

dietary supplement 

Product information

Pregna START is a dietary supplement developed for women planning pregnancy. It contains carefully selected nutrients intended for mothers-to-be before planned conception, including folic acid, vitamin D and iodine recommended by the Polish Gynecological Society (PTG). According to PTG experts, providing enough vitamins and micronutrients before pregnancy has a positive effect on the development of the foetus and on the mother’s health [4].

Indications

Women planning pregnancy.

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.

Pregna Plus

Dietary supplement

Product information

Pregna PLUS is a dietary supplement for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers developed in accordance with standards devised by Evidence Based Medicine. 

It contains ingredients recommended by the Polish Gynecological Society: folic acid, iron, iodine, vitamin D and DHA of the omega-3 family [1]. Iron contained in Pregna Plus is in the form of ferrous bisglycinate which is recommended by the Polish Gynecological Society [2], characterized by high bioavailability and well tolerated by the digestive tract. Its absorption does not depend on food factors.

Pregna Plus was enriched with MetaPregnaFolic™ (L-methylfolate calcium), an ingredient which is a biologically available form of folate, thanks to which it is absorbed easier and faster. 

Indications

Pregnant and breastfeeding women.

How it works

The ingredients of Pregna PLUS dietary supplement perform many important functions in the body, which affect proper development of the pregnancy in a physiological manner. 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[3]. 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. Iron participates in cell division and helps produce red blood cells. In addition, iron and folic acid have a beneficial effect on the immune system of the mother-to-be. Vitamin D3 helps in the proper use of calcium and phosphorus by a woman’s body.

According to the position of the Polish Panel of Experts on DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids supplementation in pregnant and breastfeeding women, it is recommended to supplement the intake of DHA to ensure that there is enough of this ingredient in the mother’s body and that it is properly transported to the foetus [4].

DHA in our product comes from purified oil from oily saltwater fish, obtained using PureMaxTM technology.

Pregna DHA

Dietary supplement

A baby’s intelligence does not depend solely on genes. You can have an impact on it from the moment of conception because the development of a baby’s nervous system starts in the first weeks of pregnancy. You can influence the development of your baby’s brain and nervous system through a balanced diet rich in DHA.

Product information

Pregna DHA is a dietary supplement for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. It is a source of DHA, a valuable omega-3 acid obtained using PureMax technology. DHA is the basic component of the baby’s brain and is responsible for its proper development.

Pregna DHA contains DHA which comes from highly purified oil from oily saltwater fish, so it is the best and safe source of this significant component of your diet. It contains triglyceride (TG) oil. It has been proven that DHA from re-esterified triglycerides (rTG) shows over twice higher bioavailability than DHA from commonly used ethyl esters (EE)[1] .

As much as 75% of brain cells are formed before birth, whereas the remaining 25% are formed during the first year of life. Each capsule of Pregna DHA is a valuable source of omega-3 DHA, which the human body cannot produce in sufficient quantities on its own. DHA acid is an ingredient whose effectiveness has been proven. In 2010, the Panel of Experts issued recommendations advising pregnant and breastfeeding women to take DHA[2].

Indications

Pregnant and breastfeeding women 

How it works

Omega-3 DHA fatty acid has an impact on brain development in foetus and breastfed infants. It is a basic component of the baby’s brain and is responsible for its proper development. Before birth, the baby gets necessary DHA from the mother’s body and a newly-born gets it with milk during breastfeeding. Therefore, pregnant and breastfeeding women need more DHA. Proper supplementation of DHA is particularly important in the case of a diet low in fish because the body cannot produce enough of this substance on its own.

Product advantages

  • DHA stimulates the baby’s brain development from the moment of conception
  • High quality omega-3 acids from oil purified using PureMax technology
  • High bioavailability - it contains triglyceride (TG) oil[1]
  • The characteristic flavour and smell of fish oil is minimized
  • Pregna DHA makes it possible to provide an amount of omega-3 DHA which satisfies pregnant women’s needs

Ingredients

300 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid from fish oil) per 1 capsule.

Directions for use and package contents

Recommended daily dose: 1-2 capsules 

The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake for omega-3 fatty acids for adults, i.e. 250 mg DHA.

Package: 30 capsules
