FOR WEEKS 13-28 OF PREGNANCY
Vital Essence 2 has been formulated to meet the specific needs of your body during weeks 13 - 28 of pregnancy. Each tablet is packed with specific vitamins and minerals which are particularly important for this phase of your baby's development.
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.

Q: Is it OK to keep on taking Vital Essence 2 when I am into the 3rd Trimester?
A: It’s perfectly fine to keep on using Vital Essence 2 for a few weeks after the end of the 2nd trimester, for example to finish off a bottle that you have only just started. The differences in the formulation of Vital Essence 3 are not huge, and have just been made in order to fine-tune the formulation to make it as specific as possible to the particular needs of your body as you move into this final stage of pregnancy.
