Elevit Vitamin & Mineral 30 tablets

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets including folic acid and iron help support women during pregnancy by ensuring they are getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for both mother and baby.

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets may help to reduce nausea and morning sickness.

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets are used to reduce the risk of having a baby born with defects of the brain and/or spinal cord. Neural tube defects are a group of abnormalities caused by failure of the neural tube to close during the unborn baby's development. The  common neural tube defect is spina bifida.  In spinal bifida a part of the spinal cord shows through a gap in the backbone.  Studies have shown a reduction in the number of babies born with this condition because the mother was taking a form of folic acid. 

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets contain the recommended daily dose of folic acid (as recommended by the NZ Ministry of Health for women who are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant).  

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets are also used to prevent dietary vitamin and mineral deficiencies which can occur particularly in pregnancy due to the increased needs that  pregnancy and breastfeeding demand in women. In particular, elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets can prevent dietary iron deficiency during pregnancy.  Iron is particularly hard to maintain in the last trimester of pregnancy and therefore elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets are essential to be taking at this time.

In preparation for pregnancy, during pregnancy and throughout lactation the need for vitamins and minerals increases greatly.  elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets are formulated to provide the right levels of vitamins and minerals to meet the increased needs of the mother-to-be and to provide her growing baby with the best possible conditions and nourishment throughout its whole development - from conception, through pregnancy and on to breastfeeding.

elevit Vitamin & Mineral tablets will also assist in the prevention of dietary iron deficiency.
