Pregnacare is the UK's most popular pregnancy supplement brand, and is trusted by mums to safeguard the diet of those who are planning for pregnancy or are already pregnant. Pregnacare Liquid is a scientifically developed formulation of 18 important vitamins and minerals, including 400mcg folic acid and 10mcg vitamin D, the exact levels as recommended by the UK Department of Health. Pregnacare Liquid has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive.
Expert liquid nutrition for mother and baby
Pregnacare Liquid has been developed as an alternative supplement format for those who may have difficulty in swallowing tablets or simply prefer a liquid format. Providing an ideal alternative to tablets, the great tasting orange flavour liquid is gentle on the stomach.
Recommended level of folic acid & vitamin D
The UK Department of Health recommends all women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400mcg of folic acid and 10mcg vitamin D from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in Pregnacare Liquid.
Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status†. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. Folic Acid is also beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
With vitamin B12 and zinc
Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and while you are a new mum. Pregnacare provides a range of nutrients for overall support, all at sensible, carefully balanced comprehensive levels, including vitamins B2, B6 and B12 which contribute to normal red blood cell formation. Also includes zinc which contributes to normal reproductive health.
Pregnacare avoids high dose iron which is not recommended
Unlike some prenatal iron supplements, Pregnacare has been specifically formulated with an ideal, moderate level of iron. High levels of iron are not recommended unless there is a particular requirement as identified by your healthcare professional.
Specially formulated by experts
Pregnacare has been formulated by Vitabiotics experts during pregnancy to help safeguard a mother's diet. Pregnacare provides a comprehensive spectrum of essential nutrients at carefully chosen safe levels, developed on the basis of international research. Pregnacare is proud to work in partnership with the Royal College of Midwives to support the health of mothers and babies by raising awareness of the benefits of good nutrition.
Before conception and during pregnancy
Pregnacare is recommended before conception to build up the stores of nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby. Good nutrition is important to help prepare a woman's body for the additional demands placed on it during pregnancy. Certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception. Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B12 contributes to normal red blood cell formation and also has a role in the process of cell division. It also includes iodine which is often recommended during pregnancy.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Pregnacare Liquid provides essential nutrients throughout pregnancy including folic acid which has an important role during the full nine months and contributes to normal blood formation. You can start taking Pregnacare at any point during pregnancy.
Before and during pregnancy: Two 5ml teaspoonfuls per day.
Pregnacare Liquid should not be taken on an empty stomach. Recommended with or following a meal.
Do not exceed the recommended intake. Excessive consumption may produce laxative effects. You can start taking Pregnacare at any point during pregnancy.

Food supplements must not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. As with other food supplements, seek professional advice before using if you are under medical supervision, suffer from food allergies, or are allergic to any of the ingredients.
