Recent scientific works show that a good supply with particular vitamins, minerals and nutrients in the two months preceding conception has a positive impact on health of the child to be born.
Doppelherz® aktiv created the food supplement Vital Materna PLUS to assist women through their pregnancy from the conception time until the end of the breastfeeding period. Folic acid for periconceptional folate supplementation
Folic acid is required for proper neural tube closure, which happens between the 22nd and the 28th day of pregnancy, when the woman might not even know that she is pregnant. This is why it is advised to women wanting children to daily consume folic acid at least 4 weeks before planned conception.
Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular DHA, are important for eyes and brain development of the fetus.
Vitamin C supports the immune system and decreases the risk of iron- deficiency anemia by favoring iron assimilation. Vitamin E is an antioxidant of the cell membranes that slows-down cellular aging.
Vitamin D helps calcium fixation in the bones. Vitamin B1, niacin, vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid play an important role in nutrient assimilation and energy release from sugars and lipids. Vitamin B2 is required for cell protection, in particular nerve cells. Vitamin B12 is involved in cell growth and function and in the balance of the nervous system. Biotin is used to build healthy skin, hair and nails.
Iodine is essential for thyroid hormones production, which control several processes such as growth, energy-yielding metabolism and fetus brain and bone development.
Iron is required for hemoglobin formation and for oxygen transport. Iron needs double during pregnancy.
Zinc has an important function in cell regeneration and protection. Together with vitamin C it strengthens the immune system.
Magnesium activates several enzymes and influences energy-yielding metabolism and function of the neuromuscular system.
