‘Pregnacare before conception’, sometimes shortened to ‘Pregnacare Conception’ is a product aimed at women who are trying for a baby. It has been developed by a team that includes highly qualified pharmacists and nutritional consultants. The product is a daily supplement which contains nutrients that have shown to be incredibly supportive towards reproductive health.
How does it work?
The main benefit of Pregnacare Conception is that the tablets help you meet the recommended folic acid level, which serves to increase maternal folate status. This effect is obtained through persistent folic acid supplements of 400 micrograms for at least one month before conception and up to three months after.
The UK Department of Health also recommends taking daily supplements containing 400 micrograms of folic acid for women who are trying to have a baby. Pregnacare Conception contains exactly this amount among other useful nutrients.
