The Third Trimester (28 - 40 weeks)

In the third trimester your blood volume increases by 40 percent, your pelvic joints expand and your breast tissue develops. Your baby is growing faster than at any other time in your pregnancy, doubling in size, increasing nerve cells, strengthening bones, maturing lungs, immune system and digestive tract, and laying down stores of fat, Iron, and Calcium. Brain cells are multiplying faster than at any other time in his or her life.

Vital Essence 3 is designed to help meet all these needs and to help you keep as fit and healthy as possible in preparation for labour, birth, and breast-feeding. We recommend that you take Vital Essence 3 in conjunction with VitalDHA.

The formulation contains 30 of the most important micro-nutrients for this key stage of your pregnancy, including Calcium, to help with muscle growth and nerve and muscle functions, and Magnesium to help with the synthesis of protein and healthy cell division. Most of a baby's Calcium is deposited in this trimester as his or her bones and teeth harden. The foetus takes up Calcium at the rate of approximately 350mg a day during this stage of the pregnancy, so it is good to have a plentiful supply to prevent it being scavenged from your own skeleton. There's plenty of Iron too, to help support your immune system and with the manufacture of red blood cells in preparation for the birth, as well as good levels of Vitamin D and Vitamin B3. We've also included Choline to help support the structural integrity of your cell membranes, as well as Iodine, Co Q10 and Folic Acid. The formula also contains Beta Carotene, to help protect against possible Vitamin A deficiency, plus a wide range of other ingredients, such as Lutein, Lycopene, Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Pomegranate and Grapeskin Extracts.

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.

    High quality vitamins! If you compere other brands like pregnacare for e.g. This one has more vitamins and in higher amounts. So you can be sure that you and your little one (s) are in good health. Didn't feel sick while taking them and never had any vitamin deficiency. Very happy

    Excellent product. I've been using the Zita West Vital Essence supplements throughout my pregnancy and have never had any doubts that I'm missing any vital nutrients.
