Increased nutrient requirements during pregnancy

During pregnancy, the need for critical nutrients such as folic acid, iron, calcium and B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, intensifies. Pregnant women are often faced with a deficiency of these nutrients, and need to be adequately supplemented to avoid the risk of anaemia and other complications. Food supplements for pregnancy +mum Plusbaby's scientifically-designed formula offers 17 essential nutrients, including folic acid in the form of 5-MTHF for optimal absorption, supporting energy metabolism and cell development during pregnancy.

Distinctive role of Plusbaby food supplements

Plusbaby products, such as +mum and +omega 3 veganThey are perfectly in line with the nutritional recommendations for pregnant women. They are formulated without artificial additives, colourings or preservatives, guaranteeing purity and safety for maternal and infant health. These supplements, rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals, play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy pregnancy, improving the functioning of the nervous system and contributing to the formation of red blood cells.

Key vitamins and minerals in +mum, prenatal vitamins for pregnancy

The +mum Food supplement for pregnancy is specifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of pregnant and breastfeeding women. Here's the importance of some of its ingredients:

  1. Folate 5-MTHF (750 mg) : +mum uses a bioavailable form of folate, essential for the growth of maternal tissues and cell division during pregnancy. It prevents neural tube defects in the foetus and is beneficial for people with genetic variants (MTHFR).
  2. Vegan vitamin D3 (25 µg) : Derived from seaweed, vitamin D3 prevents pre-eclampsia, low birth weight and premature birth. It is crucial for normal bone development in children.
  3. Iron - Ferrous bisglycinate (21 mg) : This highly bioavailable iron prevents pregnancy-induced anaemia, reducing the risk of complications for both mother and baby.
  4. Iodine : Iodine plays a crucial role during pregnancy. It is essential for the normal development of the foetus's brain and nervous system. Iodine deficiency can lead to growth retardation, intellectual development problems and birth defects. It also helps regulate the mother's thyroid function, which is essential for maintaining a healthy metabolism during pregnancy. The Federal Office of Food Safety and Veterinary Affairs (FOSV) has issued specific recommendations for this phase of life. In particular, it points out that women of childbearing age, pregnant and breastfeeding women and infants under one year of age do not consume enough iodine. That's why we've added iodine to +mum prenatal vitamins.
  5. B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12) : B vitamins are important for maternal and foetal health. B1 (thiamine) helps with carbohydrate metabolism and the development of the baby's brain. B2 (riboflavin) is important for foetal growth and vision development. B6 is essential for the development of the baby's brain and immune system. B12 is crucial for the formation of red blood cells and the development of the nervous system.
  6. Other vitamins and minerals : +mum also contains vitamins A, C and E, and minerals such as calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese and zinc, all of which play a key role in foetal development and maternal health.

 

In short, +mum provides an essential combination of nutrients, in highly bioavailable forms, to support the health and development of the baby, as well as that of the mother during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Folic acid (5-MTHF): A superior form for maternal and foetal health

Folic acid, a crucial element for health during pregnancy, is well known for its role in preventing congenital malformations, particularly neural tube defects in the foetus.

Folic acid, in the form of 5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate), is a superior form for maternal and foetal health, especially in the context of prenatal supplements such as those offered by Plusbaby. 5-MTHF is the biologically active form of folate, making it directly usable by the body without the need for conversion. This is particularly important given that around 25% of the population has a genetic variation that limits their ability to convert synthetic folic acid into its active form.

Compared with synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF crosses the blood-placental barrier more effectively, which is crucial for foetal development. It provides the necessary nutrients directly to the foetus and ensures optimal absorption and assimilation of folate, thus offering protection against foetal development anomalies and supporting maternal metabolism.

The role of folic acid, in particular 5-MTHF, is well documented in the prevention of congenital malformations, in particular neural tube defects in the foetus, and in reducing homocysteine levels, an important factor in cardiovascular health.

For more detailed information on the importance of folic acid in the form of 5-MTHF during pregnancy, you can consult the following studies and articles available on PubMed:

 

The 5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate) form of folate found in Plusbaby supplements, such as +mum, offers significant advantages over the synthetic folic acid commonly used in many supplements. 5-MTHF is the most bioavailable, biologically active form of folate, meaning it can be used directly by the body without the need for conversion. This characteristic is particularly important because almost 25% of the population has a genetic variation (MTHFR) that limits their ability to convert synthetic folic acid into its active form, leading to functional deficiency despite regular supplementation.

In addition, 5-MTHF crosses the blood-placental barrier more efficiently, directly supplying the foetus with the nutrients it needs for its development. This enables optimum absorption and assimilation of folate, ensuring maximum protection against foetal developmental anomalies and supporting maternal metabolism.

The use of 5-MTHF in Plusbaby supplements therefore reflects a commitment to safer and more effective prenatal nutrition, meeting the needs of all women, including those with MTHFR mutations.

The importance of Omega 3

Das Nahrungsergänzungsmittel +Omega 3 Vegan mit 250 mg DHA aus Meeresalgen ist in der Schwangerschaft aus mehreren Gründen besonders wichtig:

  1. Importance of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) : DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for the development of the foetus' brain and eyes. During pregnancy, the need for DHA increases as it contributes to the growth and neurological development of the baby. Adequate consumption of DHA during pregnancy is associated with better results in terms of cognitive and visual development in the child.
  2. Safety and purity : The use of seaweed as a source of DHA in +Omega 3 Vegan offers a major advantage in terms of safety. Seaweed, grown in a controlled environment, is less likely to contain heavy metals such as mercury, which are often present in fish. This is particularly important during pregnancy, as heavy metals can have harmful effects on foetal development.
  3. Sustainability and environmental impact: By opting for a source of seaweed for its omega-3, +Omega 3 Vegan offers a sustainable alternative that does not contribute to overfishing. Overfishing is a major environmental problem, affecting marine ecosystems and biodiversity. By choosing supplements made from seaweed, consumers can help preserve the oceans while meeting their nutritional needs.
  4. Suitable for vegans: For pregnant women following a vegan diet, it can be difficult to find adequate sources of omega-3, generally found in fish. +Omega 3 Vegan offers a vegan source of DHA, ensuring that nutritional needs are met without compromising personal dietary choices.

 

+Omega 3 Vegan with 250 mg of DHA from seaweed is an excellent choice for pregnant women, offering the benefits of DHA for foetal development while being a safe, sustainable option suitable for vegan diets.

A balanced diet rich in fruit and vegetables, wholegrain cereals and lean proteins, complemented by quality supplements such as +mum and +omega 3 vegan, ensures complete nutrition for both mother and baby. This integrated approach promotes better absorption of nutrients and strengthens the immune system.
