Elevit with IodinePregnancy supplement

From the moment your baby is conceived, a rapid growth curve begins. Just four weeks into pregnancy, vital organs are already forming. And all this could be happening before you even know you’re pregnant.

To help ensure your baby has all the nutrients it needs for healthy development in these early stages, it’s important you start taking a supplement like Elevit with Iodine from the moment you start trying for a baby.

HOW Elevit with Iodine can help
Elevit with Iodine contains the essential nutrients your baby needs, at Ministry of Health recommended levels. And only Elevit with Iodine is clinically proven to reduce the risk of neural tube defects, like Spina Bifida, by 92%.1

Spina Bifida and how folic acid helps
Spina Bifida is the most common neural tube defect in New Zealand. It occurs in the womb when the baby’s s spinal column doesn’t close all the way. It can result in various degrees of paralysis and sometimes even permanent disability.

Folic acid helps reduce the risk of Spina Biffida. But it’s hard to get the levels you need in pregnancy, from diet alone.

That’s why the Ministry Of Health recommends you take 800mcg of folic acid every day, at least four weeks prior to conception and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Elevit with Iodine contains the recommended amount of folic acid as well as other key nutrients for baby’s healthy development, like iodine and iron.

The Elevit with Iodine difference
Elevit with Iodine has New Zealand’s highest combination of key nutrients, like iron, folic acid and iodine of any pregnancy supplement, which is why it’s only available from pharmacies. It contains iodine, to assist in healthy brain development, and iron to help prevent dietary iron deficiency in the mother and provide benefits for baby. And all you need is one tablet a day.
