More about the ingredients:
Folate (L-methylfolate) is crucial for the development of a healthy foetus. It can significantly reduce the chance of neural tube defects (NTDs), such as spina bifida. Women planning a pregnancy should ideally take 400μg daily for at least 3 months prior to conception and then during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the baby’s spine and nervous system are developing. Research has shown that calcium L-methylfolate is a more bioavailable form of folate rather than folic acid as it is better absorbed, and not affected by metabolic defects.
The vitamin B12 used in Terranova Prenatal Multivitamin is in the form of methylcobalamin which has been shown to have superior bioavailability in comparison with the more commonly used cyanocobalamin form of B12. Methylcobalamin has been shown to be better absorbed and retained in higher amounts within body tissues, which results in more effective utilisation. During pregnancy, B12 has many important roles, including supporting red blood cell formation, reducing fatigue and encouraging healthy cell division.
DHA is an essential fatty acid required for both maternal health and that of the baby. It is needed for the development of the brain, eyes and nervous system. Terranova Prenatal Multivitamin provides 15mg of DHA from Algal oil (an algae derivative).
Manganese is provided as bisglycinate chelate using Albion Lab’s state-of-the-art TRAACS™.
TRAACS™ stands for The Real Amino Acid Chelate System and is Albion™ Human Nutrition’s branded trade name for a range of its exclusive patented products.
Iron is provided in the form of iron bisglycinate chelate (Ferrochel™) which is an effective form that is exceptionally well-tolerated by the gastrointestinal system. As such iron bisglycinate is not associated with gastrointestinal side effects (nausea, constipation) in the same way that most other forms of iron are. Studies have demonstrated its superior bioavailability even to the extent that its absorption is not impaired by the dietary inclusion of tannins and phytates (which typically hinder iron absorption). Ferrochel™ is a premium chelate from Albion Advanced Nutrition.
Choline, a crucial nutrient for energy, metabolism, mental focus, and general well-being, is provided as VitaCholine™. This premium ingredient is made to the highest standards and is the global leader in choline.
The MAGNIFOOD complex ingredients include:
Stabilized Rice Bran has one of nature’s highest concentrations of the vitamin E-related compounds tocopherols and tocotrienols, as well as B-vitamins, fibre, essential fatty acids, minerals and more than 100 different compounds possessing antioxidant activity (such as alpha lipoic acid [which also recycles antioxidants such as vitamins C and E], coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), carotenoids and the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase and catalase).
Blackberry is among the highest rated ORAC rated antioxidant fruit and is a potent source of anthocyanin flavonoids and carotenoids (especially zeaxanthin, lutein, beta carotene and cryptoxanthin).
Kale is a good source of many nutrients, with carotenoids and sulphur rich antioxidants such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol being among the most important.
Bilberry is a rich source of vitamin C and the mineral manganese and is especially known for its high concentration of anthocyanoside flavonoids, which have been researched for a wide array of potential health benefits. Among other areas, these flavonoids (which provide much of the blue-purple colour associated with bilberries) may play a significant role in supporting the health of collagen and connective tissue, the circulatory system and the eyes.
Pumpkin Seed is one of the most abundant natural sources of the important micronutrient zinc, as well as supplying good levels of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide a high concentration of healthy fats.
Beetroot Juice & Greens from beets provide various B-vitamins (especially rich in folate), as well as significant levels of vitamin C, the minerals potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper and the important methyl donor betaine. Among other nutrients, beet greens additionally provide high levels of carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin.
Spinach is an excellent source of nutrients, such as carotenoids (especially lutein and zeaxanthin), vitamins K and C, folate and manganese.
