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.

Q: Why are Omega-3 fatty acids important?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: 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 linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide 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. These fatty acids are especially important during pregnancy as maternal intake contributes to the normal foetal brain and eye development

Q: How pure is the fish oil in Pregnacare Max?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil produced in Norway, has been used in Pregnacare Max capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.

Q: Can I use Pregnacare Max during Breast-feeding?

Q: Can Pregnacare Max be used alongside medicines?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: As a general rule, Pregnacare Max 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. As Pregnacare Max contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (blood thinners) do not take Pregnacare Max except on the advice of a doctor.

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 Max suitable for vegetarians?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: No, Pregnacare Max is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin 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 linseed but this process is very inefficient. Pregnacare Max contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA.

Q: Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%. Is this safe during pregnancy?
— 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 Max are specific to normal requirements in pregnancy. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare Max are higher than the NRV (e.g. folic acid, the recommended level is 200% NRV). Importantly, all levels are safe for pregnancy and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation.

Q: Does Pregnacare Max contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess may be harmful during pregnancy?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: Pregnacare Max 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 Max is produced from fish oils that are certified free from Vitamin A and therefore safe to take throughout pregnancy.

Q: I have been recommended by my midwife/G.P. to take a supplement containing 400 mcg of folic acid per day, only for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Is it safe to take a supplement containing folic acid (like Pregnacare Max), after this time?
— Asked on November 21, 2017
A: It is perfectly safe to take 400 mcg of folic acid per day throughout the whole of pregnancy. The U.K. Department of Health's Chief Medical Officer recommends that women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement containing 400 mcg folic acid daily, from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. Folic acid is vital during this period for the normal, healthy development of your baby's neural tube. However, folic acid can be taken throughout pregnancy, not just up to the 12th week of pregnancy and Pregnacare Max gives the advantage of not only providing folic acid, but other essential nutrients as well.

Q: What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare Max 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 Max 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.
