Egao Women Pregnancy
Egao Women Pregnancy provides, in each capsule, the necessary amount of Folic Acid to increase the level of maternal folate.
Egao Women Pregnancy is a food supplement that helps fulfil the nutritional needs of women during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding adding an extra amount of DHA, 400 µg folic acid, iodine, iron, vitamins and minerals.
During the preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding stages, the nutritional needs of women increase due to the changes occurring in their bodies, as well as the nutrients given to the baby for its development.
Egao Women Pregnancy formula contains maximum quality ingredients carefully selected to complement the nutritional needs women require during these stages, providing benefits for the mother and the baby.
It contains folic acid, a nutrient that all women need in the preconception stage and in the first months of pregnancy, since a supplementary intake of 400 µg of folic acid increases the maternal folate level, taking it at least 1 month before conceiving and up to 3 months after conception. A low amount of maternal folate is a risk factor for neural tube defects in the developing foetus.
The intake of 200 mg of DHA contributes to the normal development of the brain and eyes of both the foetus and breastfed infants.
For this beneficial effect, in addition to this amount, the recommended daily amount of omega 3 fatty acids for adults should be taken; that is, 250 mg of DHA and EPA.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that contributes to protect cells against oxidative damage. It helps towards the normal functioning of the immune system and improves the absorption of iron. Vitamin C is also involved in the development of teeth and bones.
Egao Women Pregnancy contains minerals such as iron, that helps reduce tiredness and fatigue; zinc, that contributes to a normal fertility, and iodine, an essential mineral for the synthetization of thyroid hormones and key to the mental development and growth of the foetus.
