We have worked with OB-GYNs to facilitate prenatal vitamins. Through our well researched formulas, we have favoured nutrients that ensure maximum absorption.
+mum contains optimal doses of 17 high-quality essential nutrients, including folic acid, iron, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iodine, biotin and selenium. It provides all the necessary nutrients for women during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, the entire pregnancy period and the breastfeeding period.
No milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, soy, peanuts, wheat yeast, gluten, corn, sodium, sugar, starch, artificial colours, preservatives or flavours.
+mum uses 5-MTHF folate (not synthetic folic acid) which is the most bioavailable folate available for food supplements. This formula ensures maximum absorption. Read our article to find out more.
Higher intakes of 5-MTHF have been correlated with a reduced risk of infertility, shorter time to pregnancy, lower risk of miscarriage and better outcomes from fertility treatments.
While most prenatal vitamin supplements use vitamin D from an animal source (lamb's wool), +mum has been designed with vitamin D carefully extracted from seaweed to provide an easily absorbable vegan form of vitamin D3. Made with Vita-algae D, a sustainable, vegan form of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
According to the WHO, vitamin D can reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia, low birth weight and premature birth.
+mum has been formulated with ferrous bisglycinate which is easily absorbed, causing fewer side effects and less likely to block the absorption of vitamin E and calcium.
Vitamin B1 helps with energy production and digestion. During pregnancy: it is essential for the development of the baby, particularly its nerves and eyes. If you are breastfeeding: it promotes lactation.
The need for vitamin B2 increases in pregnant and breastfeeding women. A lack of intake during pregnancy increases the risk of malformation of the child.
During pregnancy, the body needs more iodine, especially to produce thyroid hormones. Most foods contain only a small amount.
