Femibion also takes women’s health and nutritional needs seriously. In general it is always important to follow a healthy lifestyle and a varied and balanced diet, and particular care should be taken for this when planning a pregnancy, during pregnancy and the nursing period. During this time women have special changing needs.
This is why we have developed two supplements for the special phases of pregnancy, from before you conceive to the day you stop breastfeeding.
Femibion food supplements, provide well chosen nutrients and most importantly folate (Metafolin® & folic acid) & DHA, that, used as a complement to a balanced and varied diet, can support you and your baby during this special and exciting time. For example it contains folate, a nutrient which plays an important role during pregnancy as it contributes to the growth of maternal tissue, including the formation of the placenta. The placenta supplies the unborn baby with all essential nutrients. Maternal intake of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA contributes to the normal development of the brain and the eyes of the foetus and the breastfed infant. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg of DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake for omega-3 fatty acids for adults, i.e.: 250 mg DHA & EPA.
