Zita West Vital Essence 2 is a premium pregnancy multivitamin supplement with the optimal vitamins required for the second trimester ( 13-28 weeks ).
By the second trimester your baby's limbs will be fully formed and the joints able to move. Eyelashes and eyebrows are beginning to grow, teeth are starting to develop in the jaw bones and fat stores are being laid down. The organs are maturing and the developing bones are continuing to ossify. The nervous system is becoming more developed and the brain is beginning to rapidly increase in size, its brain cells multiplying at an amazing 50,000 to 100,000 per second.
As your pregnancy progresses it is obviously important to make sure your vitamin and mineral intake is protected. Your appetite should return as early feelings of nausea and tiredness pass, but don't be tempted to 'eat for two'. It is quality not quantity that counts, and excess weight gained now may be hard to shift later. Good nutrition is important for your babys development and for your own health during the pregnancy.
Vital Essence 2 provides everything you need to safeguard your everyday diet, including 400ug of Folic Acid (useful for a whole range of cellular activities, not just for helping to minimise the risk of spina bifida) plus lots of protective ingredients such as Beta Carotene (a safe way to help support your intake of Vitamin A), Copper, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc, all of which support normal cell division and help to protect DNA. Take one capsule, three times a day (with food), alongside a good quality diet.
It is recommended that Vital Essence 2 be taken alongside Vital DHA for maximum benefit to overall nutrition.
