Zita West Vital Essence 1 is a vitamin and mineral supplement for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The first three months of pregnancy are in many ways the most crucial stage of a baby’s development - the time when all of his or her organs and systems are forming, as well as hands, feet, and limbs. It is now recognised that a mother’s diet immediately before conception and in the first weeks of pregnancy can influence the way that the embryo develops.

Studies show that inadequate nutrition in the first trimester can lead to impaired brain development, low birth weight and reduced head circumference. Investing at this stage in the best nutrition will not only help to give your baby an exceptional start in life, it will also give you a better chance of a comfortable and healthy pregnancy.

The formulation of Vital Essence 1 supplies all the necessary micro-nutrients to meet the demands of this rapid early development. One tablet taken three times a day (with or after food) contain everything you need, including the recommended amount of folic acid.

Zita West recommends recommend that it should be taken in conjunction with . During the first 12 weeks Vital DHA will help to build your baby’s brain and nervous system. DHA is essential for growth; if the mother's diet is not rich enough in it, her own body and brain will be depleted in consequence.

Vital Essence 1 is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. It is free from artificial colours, preservatives and gluten and is certified non-GM.

Yes, tiredness can be caused by numerous factors; taking a good quality multi-vitamin and mineral supplement such as Vital Essence 1 will help.

Can taking vitamins during pregnancy harm the baby?
Anything in excess is not good for you or your baby. It is always best to take the amount recommended. All the active ingredients that go to make up Vital Essence 1 are within recommended RDA's.

My GP says if I am eating a good diet, I do not need to take vitamins?
In our view, even if you have a healthy diet - which many people don't these days, given missed, hurried or convenience meals - you can't always be sure you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need. Not least because intensive food production and processing has stripped many foods of a lot of their nourishment. In our opinion, a good multi vitamin and mineral supplement is essential during pregnancy, if only as an insurance policy.
