ELEVIT with Iodine Pregnancy Multi Tablets

PLU

$46.99


PHARMACY ONLY MEDICINE

Elevit with Iodine is a once-daily vitamin and mineral supplement for pregnancy. It is specially formulated to meet the needs of women who are trying to conceive or are pregnant and provide baby with the best possible nutritional support. It contains 800mcg folic acid, shown to reduce neural tube defects such as spina bifida. Elevit is clinically proven to reduce the risk of neural tube defects like spina bifida by 92%.1 It also contains iron to help prevent iron deficiency and iodine to assist in the development of baby's brain.

Elevit with Iodine contains the highest levels of iron, folic acid and iodine in combination than any other pregnancy multivitamin available in New Zealand.

It also contains a range of ingredients to help meet your changed nutritional requirements throughout conception and pregnancy.

1. Czeizel AE Paed Drugs (2000)2(6). Elevit with lodine formulation is similar to that used in this study except that it contains iodine and not vitamin A.

 

Available in 100 and 30 tablet packs.


Benefits:

Before Pregnancy
 
It's best to take Elevit with Iodine when you first start planning to have a baby, and then continue throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding.
 
During Pregnancy
 
If you're pregnant, Elevit with Iodine can help!  The unique formulation of Elevit with Iodine contains 800mcg of folic acid, plus ten other vitamins and eight trace elements including iron and iodine. The high iron content can help prevent dietary iron deficiency (all too common when you're pregnant).
 
After Pregnancy
 
After a baby is born it also makes sense to take Elevit with Iodine. You may have lost a lot of iron during the birth process and it's important for your health to have adequate nutrition levels after pregnancy. If you're breastfeeding, you're also likely to feel like a machine! On average a woman breastfeeding will be making between 700-900mL of milk a day!  That means you'll need extra nutrients to cope with the demand.
