a complete dose of nutrients
in one capsule
Pregnaval® DUO contains the important acid DHA and other necessary substances in one revolutionary capsule. Consequently, using Pregnaval® DUO is much more convenient than equivalent products where oil substances and solids are contained separately in a tablet and capsule.
Pregnaval® BASIC and PRIM coated tablets are easy to swallow. The tablet’s coating preserves the stability of the contained active substances, which gives them a longer shelf life.
In multilayer coating, pellets with active ingredients can be coated with different layers that allow the substances to be released gradually. That makes it possible to modify the subsequent release and biological effects of these components. Prostanin pellets are coated with a layer of piperine, an extract of black pepper, which is released from the coating before the active ingredients inside the pellet. This preincubation with piperine significantly increases the bioavailability of the active ingredients.
More effective absorbtion
of active ingredients into the body
Micronization is a modern method making it possible to achieve the smallest possible dimensions of nutrients and other substances taken orally. Measuring a few micrometres, micronized particles have a much greater surface area than normally used ingredients. This makes the active ingredient more accessible for the organism – the micronized substance dissolves more easily and quickly in the body’s liquids, which enhances the biological effect of the nutrient.
no animal origin of capsules
Unlike ordinary gelatin capsules made from the bones, cartilage and skin of animals, vegetarian capsules are of purely plant origin. That makes them suitable for vegetarians. They are also halal certified. Vegetarian capsules made from cellulose fibers are more stable, even in more extreme climatic conditions, which prolongs the lifespan of the active substances contained in them. Pregnaval comes in capsules produced from a plant material (HPMC – hydroxypropylmethylcelullose), making it suitable for vegetarians.
