The First Trimester (0 -12 weeks)

The first three months of pregnancy are in many ways the most crucial stage of a baby’s development - the time when all of his or her organs and systems are forming, as well as hands, feet, and limbs. It is now recognised that a mother’s diet immediately before conception and in the first weeks of pregnancy can influence the way that the embryo develops. Investing at this stage in the best nutrition may not only help support your baby's start to life, but also give you a better chance of a healthy pregnancy. 

The new formulation of Vital Essence 1 supplies all the micro-nutrients that are most important to meet the demands of early pregnancy, 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, to help support the changing demands of your body during the first three months of your pregnancy.

We recommend that it should be taken in conjunction with Vital DHA for maximum benefit to your overall nutrition.

All Zita West products are developed in response to the very latest research and are regularly reviewed and reformulated to remain at the cutting-edge of clinical and nutritional thinking for optimum reproductive health.

Directions For Use

Take one capsule three times a day with food. Should only be taken on a full stomach. Suitable for vegetarians. Free from artificial colours, preservatives gluten and yeast. Non-GM.

    Lots of vitamins included

    Found product quite strong at beginning so reduced to once a day rather than recommended 3 times.
    Order very smooth & straight forward & efficient.

    I refer to these tablets as my "miracle pills" to my friends. I've not had morning sickness while taking them!! I'm usually hugely prone to nausea, so I'm sure I would have had a miserable time with morning sickness if it weren't for these tablets. I've had a great pregnancy so far (4/5 months in).
