Q: When is Pregnacare Stretch Mark Cream recommended?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Pregnacare Stretch Mark Cream is recommended when the skin starts to stretch during the first trimester. This is because the sooner potential stretch marks are cared for - when they are red or reddish purple - the more likely you are to lessen their appearance. Once they begin to smooth and fade they become less obvious and far more difficult to treat successfully. As the skin contracts after pregnancy it can also lose its suppleness, which is why Pregnacare Stretch Mark Cream should be continued to be applied after giving birth, to help contracting skin stay supple.

A: As a general rule, Pregnacare Breast-feeding can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. However, if you are already taking prescribed supplements or medications, seek advice from your doctor or health professional first.

Q: How and when should Pregnacare Breast-feeding be used?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Two tablets and one capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking Pregnacare Breast-feeding with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea which is sometimes experienced if supplements are taken on an empty stomach. Pregnacare Breast-feeding should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Pregnacare Breast-feeding is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet and capsule. We do not recommend chewing the tablets or capsules because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations.

Q: Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.

Q: Is Pregnacare Breast-feeding suitable for vegetarians?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: No. Pregnacare Breast-feeding is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains a fish oil capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as flaxseed but this process is very inefficient. Pregnacare Breast-feeding contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.

Q: Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%. Is this safe during Breast-feeding?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: NRV levels are calculated to help prevent the most basic vitamin and mineral deficiency states. The levels contained in Pregnacare Breast-feeding are specific to normal requirements whilst lactating. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare Breast-feeding are higher than the NRV (e.g. Vitamin D, the recommended level is 200% NRV). Importantly, all levels are safe and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation.

Q: Does Pregnacare Breast-feeding contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess may be harmful during pregnancy?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Pregnacare Breast-feeding does not contain any vitamin A either in the multivitamin tablet or the special fish oil DHA capsule. The multivitamin tablet has been carefully formulated specially for pregnancy to contain a moderate (non-excessive) level of betacarotene (provided as natural mixed carotenoids) instead of vitamin A. Betacarotene (pro-retinol) is converted into vitamin A naturally by body as required, and is safe and suitable for pregnancy. The Omega 3 capsule in Pregnacare Breast-feeding is produced from fish oils that are certified free from Vitamin A and therefore safe to take throughout pregnancy.

Q: What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare Breast-feeding and miss a day?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: A regular intake is recommended, but don't worry, this will not have done any harm. Simply take Pregnacare Breast-feeding on the next day when you remember, and take as directed. You should not take more than the recommended amount on subsequent days to make up for any day(s) that you have missed. Whilst it is important to take a supplement every day, if you miss one day this is fine because the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals build over time.

Q: Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease. The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.
