Elevit with Iodine – Pregnancy Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement 30 Tablets

Elevit with Iodine is a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement that has been specially formulated to help meet the increased nutritional needs of women who are trying to conceive, pregnant and breastfeeding. Deciding to start or extend a family marks the beginning of an exciting and momentous journey for a couple. A journey for which preparation is key.

Elevit with Iodine is a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement that has been specially formulated to help meet the increased nutritional needs of women who are trying to conceive, pregnant and breastfeeding.

Support when you’re trying for a baby

The first 6–8 weeks after conception are critical for your baby’s development including growth of its vital organs. Yet most women don’t know they are pregnant until after their baby starts to grow and develop.

It can take time to build the higher level of nutrients your body will need to support you and your growing baby. Despite your best efforts it can be difficult to get enough through diet alone. It’s therefore important to start taking Elevit with Iodine daily from at least 1 month before you start trying to get pregnant. Elevit with Iodine helps build up the essential nutrients to support your baby’s healthy development from the day you concieve.

Support when you’re pregnant

Whilst pregnant, the recommended dietary intake of nutrients increases by up to 50%3 and despite the best intentions, it can be difficult to meet these additional nutritional needs through diet alone.

Taking a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement, such as Elevit with Iodine, can help build up the essential nutrients required and help cover the needs of both mother and baby throughout your entire pregnancy.

Support when you’re breastfeeding

Nutritional requirements increase during breastfeeding to cover the needs of both mum and baby. It might be difficult to meet these increased requirements through food alone. That means you may need extra nutrients to help cope with the demands of breastfeeding and motherhood. Elevit with Iodine contains essential vitamins and minerals to help support mothers increased needs during breastfeeding and support baby’s ongoing development.

Key vitamins and minerals that are essential to support baby’s healthy development include:

  • Folic Acid – Elevit contains 800 mcg folic acid
  • Iodine – Elevit contains 250 mcg of iodine
  • Iron – Elevit contains 60 mg of elemental iron
  • Vitamin B3 (nicotinamide) – Elevit contains 19 mg of nicotinamide
 

The key benefits behind the essential ingredients in Elevit with Iodine include:

Folic Acid

During the first few weeks of pregnancy, before most women find out that they are pregnant, the neural tube has already developed or closed. The neural tube forms the baby’s brain and spinal cord, which is essential to the central nervous system. A woman’s nutritional folate status can play an important role in the formation of the neural tube. Folic acid, a supplemental form of folate, is clinically proven7 to reduce the risk of neural tube defects like spina bifida. 

Iodine

Iodine is an essential nutrient for the growth and normal development of baby’s brain. Iodine requirements increase during pregnancy and breastfeeding and it is important that women planning pregnancy and who are pregnant or breastfeeding have an adequate intake to support the needs of their developing baby.

Following the mandatory fortification of commercial bread- baking with iodised salt, it is still recommended that pregnant and breastfeeding women will require a pregnancy supplement containing iodine10.

Iron

Iron demand increases during pregnancy due to the rise in maternal blood volume, growth of the foetus and placenta9. Iron helps prevent dietary iron deficiency. Iron is important in the formation of red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body so it’s a good idea to make sure you are covering the increased needs of pregnancy.

Vitamin B3

Elevit with Iodine contains a range of additional vitamins and minerals to help support baby’s  development. Elevit with Iodine includes 19 mg of nicotinamide (vitamin B3), which meets the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) current recommended daily intake of vitamin B3 for pregnant women in Australia.
