Allergen Information

From Soya: Vitamin E (as D-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Soya Oil, Natural Mixed Tocopherols.

Contains yeast.

The Second Trimester (13-28 weeks)

By the second trimester your baby’s limbs will be fully formed and the joints able to move. Eyelashes and eyebrows are beginning to grow, teeth are starting to develop in the jaw bones and fat stores are being laid down. The organs are maturing and the developing bones are continuing to ossify. The nervous system is becoming more developed and the brain is beginning to rapidly increase in size, its brain cells multiplying at an amazing 50,000 to 100,000 per second.

As your pregnancy progresses it is obviously important to make sure your vitamin and mineral intake is protected. Your appetite should return as early feelings of nausea and tiredness pass, but don’t be tempted to 'eat for two'. It is quality not quantity that counts, and excess weight gained now may be hard to shift later. Good nutrition is important for your baby’s development and for your own health during the pregnancy.

Vital Essence 2 provides everything you need to safeguard your everyday diet, 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.

We recommend that Vital Essence 2 should be taken in conjunction with VitalDHA 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.

If under medical supervision, seek guidance from your medical practitioner before using this product.

    Vital Essence 2 was recommended after my Vital Essence 1 and I still loved it! It keeps me active and it makes me feel that my baby is getting the best nutrients. Very good product!

    Zita West Vital Essence are great vitamins, very high quality and specifically formulated for the second trimester. I've taken these based on the recommendation of my doctor, and I believe these made a big difference in my energy levels throughout pregnancy. Definitely recommended.
