When you live in northern climates, Vitamin D supplementation is already a must.
These chewable Vitamin D3 from Genestra are great for every member of the family, pre-pregnancy or not. Ideally, levels should be tested, but unless you fall within some pretty strict guidelines, you'll be paying for the service out of your own pocket.
Vitamin D3: • Helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth • Helps in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus • Helps to prevent vitamin D deficiency • Great-tasting natural blackcurrant flavour
Vitamin D improves the absorption of calcium and phosphorous, and helps in the maintenance of bone health. Osteoporosis Canada’s guideline statements recommend a daily vitamin D intake of 400-1000 IU for low-risk adults under 50 years of age and 800-2,000 IU for high-risk and older adults.1 Vitamin D intakes of 700-800 IU/day are associated with a decreased risk of bone fracture, in comparison with 400 IU/day.
Choline works with folate in preventing neural tube and other birth defects, and it also helps increase cognition and brain development.
The Phos Choline from Genestra will not only help prevent the neural tube and birth defects, it will also provide support for your liver and gallbladder as well. Down the road, it will also help prevent clogged milk ducts and mastitis. Click on the picture to learn more about why choline is such a superstar when it comes to your pre-pregnancy nutrition plan.
And last but not least, magnesium. This magnsium from Pure Encapsulations not only promotes proper muscle function, but supports bone development and maintenance.
Magnesium glycinate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium that supports the metabolism of macronutrients and energy production. Magnesium also plays essential roles in maintaining healthy muscle contractile function. As magnesium regulates calcium channels, it may have an important role in controlling cramping. Several clinical trials have found that magnesium supports muscle function during intense exercise and helps to lessen nighttime leg cramps. It's also one of the most common deficiencies in North America (more on magnesium covered in week four of the Taking Charge of your Fertility Destiny programme).
