WHY TAKE SUPPLEMENTS DURING PREGNANCY?
The modern diet may not contain enough to provide a sufficient level of nutrients for optimal growth of a developing baby. Combine this with poor food choice from time to time in spite of an overall very good diet, and the decision to take out this kind of health insurance is only sensible. Furthermore, the safety profile of vitamins and minerals combined with the risk for a lack of them, only serves to reinforce this course of action. The Biotics Research scientists have put together the most comprehensive formulas that includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids as well as omega 3 fatty acids.
The low level of vitamin A is comprised of the pre-form mixed carotenoids as well as the palmitate form.
Eat regular meals containing high biological value proteins and consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates. Drink plenty of fresh water. Chew food well, and relax when eating. Take some form of exercise daily.
