From entire begining to the life

Waiting for the birth of a child is without doubt one of the most beautiful periods in the life of a woman and for the rest of her family. It is a joyful time, but also a time of natural concerns about the health of the baby and the mother.

Pregnancy is a major strain on a woman’s organism and a drain on energy levels. That is why healthy nutrition and a balanced intake of vitamins and minerals play an important role and have a beneficial effect on fetal development. Even once the baby has arrived, the mother’s diet is very important. Above all, diet affects the quantity and quality of mother’s milk, which is the only source of nutrition for most babies in the first months of their life.

If you want to be sure that mother and child have everything they need for healthy development, choose the Pregnaval® line of dietary supplements that are specially designed for women preparing for pregnancy and for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.

Pregnaval product line

What makes the Pregnaval® product line unique is that the products were developed specifically for each trimester of pregnancy. That means that during every stage of the child’s development the mother is receiving precisely the right quantities of the right nutrients she and the child require.

Two essential vitamins for
easy early pregnancy

  • Recommended dose
    1 tablet per day
  • Pack contents
    30 coated tablets
  • BEFORE PREGNANCY
    To boost immunity and prepare the organism for the demanding period of pregnancy
  • DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER OF PREGNANCY
    To supplement the vitamins essential for maintaining normal metabolism in the mother and for the correct development of the child

This is the simplest, basic Pregnaval® line product, which provides the two most important vitamins for this stage of pregnancy. All the active substances are in micronized form contained in one coated tablet.

Every Pregnaval® BASIC or PRIM tablet contains 800 μg of folic acid to meet the increased requirement for this indispensible substance before and during pregnancy.

Pregnaval Basic Effects

The two most important vitamins for this stage of pregnancy are folic acid and B6. Added extract of root ginger is effective in alleviating morning sickness and vomiting during pregnancy.

<
  • 1/3 Folic acid
  • 2/3 Vitamin B6
  • 3/3 Ginger
>
  • Folic acid promotes cell division, contributing to the growth of embryonic tissue during pregnancy. Along with vitamin B6 it helps maintain the normal metabolism of homocysteine, a metabolic waste substance. It contributes to the normal synthesis of amino acids, promotes the formation of blood cells and boosts the immune system.

  • Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal metabolism of proteins, red blood cell formation and the normal working of the immune system. It helps regulate hormonal activity and reduce fatigue and exhaustion.

  • Ginger is effective in helping alleviate various types of nausea, especially among pregnant women, and helps maintain vitality and energy levels.

A sufficient intake of folic acid and vitamin B6 is ESSENTIAL for the correct development of the child during the first trimester.

complex preparation containing
a mixture of vitamins and minerals

  • Recommended dose
    1 tablet per day
  • Pack contents
    30 coated tablets
  • BEFORE PREGNANCY
    To boost immunity and prepare the organism for the demanding period of pregnancy
  • DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER OF PREGNANCY
    To supplement the nutrients essential for maintaining normal metabolism in the mother and for the correct development and growth of embryonic tissue

Pregnaval® PRIM is a complex preparation containing a balanced mixture of vitamins and minerals. All the active substances providing the necessary daily dose of nutrients are contained in micronized form in a single coated tablet. Besides ease of use, this ensures the organism is better able to absorb these important substances.

Pregnaval® PRIM – very rich in nutrients but also extremely gentle on the organism of the mother and the child.

Pregnaval Prim Effects

In addition to folic acid, vitamin B6 and ginger Pregnaval® PRIM contains a number of other key ingredients.

<
  • 1/13 Folic acid
  • 2/13 Vitamin B6
  • 3/13 Ginger
  • 4/13 Iron
  • 5/13 Magnesium
  • 6/13 Zinc
  • 7/13 Copper
  • 8/13 Vitamin C
  • 9/13 Vitamin B2
  • 10/13 Vitamin B1
  • 11/13 Pantothenic acid
  • 12/13 Vitamin D
  • 13/13 Biotin

  • Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal metabolism of proteins, red blood cell formation and the normal working of the immune system. It helps regulate hormonal activity and reduce fatigue and exhaustion.

  • Ginger is effective in helping alleviate various types of nausea, especially among pregnant women, and helps maintain vitality and energy levels.

  • Iron is used in the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin. Given the high utilization of iron during pregnancy, the preparation makes use of the ideal carbonyl form of iron – FERRONYL®.

  • Magnesium contributes to the normal synthesis of proteins. Along with iron, zinc and vitamin D it promotes cell division. Together with vitamin C it plays a role in sustaining energy metabolism and keeps bones and teeth healthy.

  • Zinc is involved in DNA synthesis and helps preserve normal testosterone levels in the blood. It also benefits healthy fertility and reproduction.

  • Copper contributes to the normal transfer of iron in the body. Iodine and selenium promote the functioning of the thyroid gland.

  • Vitamin C boosts the absorption of iron and, along with iron and zinc, ensures the immune system functions normally.

  • Vitamin B2 is used in the metabolism of iron and is important for red blood cells.

  • Vitamin B1 contributes to a healthy heart.

  • Pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental activity.

  • Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones.

  • Biotin promotes the metabolism of macronutrients, i.e. proteins, saccharides and fats.

The child takes the iron it needs from the mother’s body, which can lead to anemia and exhaustion in the mother. In FERRONYL® form, iron is easier to absorb into the organism.

A revolutionary application form –
all nutrients in one capsule

  • Recommended dose
    1 capsule per day with food, washed down with a sufficient quantity of liquid
  • Pack contents
    30 vegetarian capsules
  • IN THE SECOND AND THIRD TRIMESTERS OF PREGNANCY
    For the correct completion of the child’s development
  • AFTER GIVING BIRT H AND DURING BREAST FEEDING
    To help the mothers’ organism recover and ensure nutritious mothers’ milk

One of the main advantages of Pregnaval® DUO is the revolutionary form of application. All the active substances are contained in a vegetarian capsule in micronized form, making them much easier for the organism to absorb. What is more, each capsule contains both solid active substances in the form of pellets and the unsaturated fatty acid DHA. 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 Duo Effects

The composition of Pregnaval® DUO is similar to that of the unique Pregnaval® PRIM but contains dosages corresponding to the advanced stage of pregnancy and the period of post-partum convalescence. What is more, its composition is enhanced with the unsaturated fatty acid DHA, which is very important during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters and during breastfeeding, and black pepper extract piperine.

  • Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones.

  • Biotin promotes the metabolism of macronutrients, i.e. proteins, saccharides and fats.

  • DHA is an omega-3 unsaturated fatty acid which the body is unable to produce itself. It has been proven that DHA plays a very important role during the growth and development of children’s brains and has an impact on the correct development of locomotor and cognitive skills. Supplying the organism with DHA in the form of a dietary supplement is therefore crucial during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as ordinary food does not provide a sufficient intake and there is a risk of a deficit. By taking in sufficient DHA the mother protects herself against a decline in the levels of this substance in her own brain cells and against post-partum depression and lactation psychosis. The DHA contained in Pregnaval® DUO does not come from fish, which rules out any possible mercury content.

  • Piperine, an extract of black pepper, enhances the active working of the used ingredients, thus making them more accessible for the organism.

The body can absorb up to 70% of iron in Ferronyl® form, unlike ordinarily used forms of iron.

Revolutionary application form

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.

pills_01

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.

Multilayer coating

Pellets release active ingredients
more effectively and gradually

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.

Micronization method

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.

Ferronyl

Gentle on the organism

One advantage of Pregnaval® preparations is their use of elementary iron, i.e. iron in carbonyl form known as FERRONYL®. What makes this type of iron special is the minimal particle size, so absorption into the organism is highly efficient. As a result, iron does not have to be supplied in larger doses than necessary. Mothers-to-be will mainly appreciate the fact that their organism is not needlessly burdened by iron and tolerates it better than other forms of iron.

Vegetarian capsules

Vegicaps —
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.
