What is Vidofe®?
Vidofe® is a women's health supplement specifically chosen based on proven and recognized deficiencies in order to supplement the mother as well as the baby and reduce any deficiency related risks. Vidofe® takes into account the nutritional needs and deficits of pregnant women or nursing mothers, and provides the necessary nutrients without the additional unneeded components of Multi-Vitamins.
Vidofe® Principles of Nutrition:
The protective role of folic acid on neural tube defects.
Vitamin D3 and iodine as necessary micronutrients to pregnant and lactating women.
The key role of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the maturation of the brain and retina of the fetus.
Vidofe® combines personalized supplementation on prescription (Iron, Calcium, Magnesium) in pharmacological doses.
Folic Acid (vitamin B9), also called Folate:
Deficiency does increase the risk of certain malformations of the brain, such as failure of neural tube baby, the risk of prematurity and fetal growth retardation. VIDOFE® provides the 400-mcg / d folic acid the child needs.
To compensate for a lack of calcium in the baby, which will impact on the skeleton, the vitamin D3 is very common in late pregnancy. Supplementation of 10 micrograms / day is recommended throughout pregnancy. VIDOFE® supplements 5 micrograms / day of vitamin D3, the dose being the maximum permitted for dietary supplements.
Natural Vitamin E:
To be sure to consume enough of this precious antioxidant, present in nuts, peanuts, other oilseeds, and in some oils, foods that we tend to minimize to keep the line. The role of vitamin E in VIDOFE® is precisely to "protect" the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids omega 3.
To prevent the risk of thyroid hyperplasia (the most common clinical manifestation is the infamous goiter) unfortunately still too frequent in our latitudes, and a mentally retarded child. However, pregnancy and lactation contribute to the onset and exacerbation of this deficiency. VIDOFE® supplements 150 micrograms / day of iodine.
The Omega-3 and especially DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid):
DHA is called "acid cervonic" (found at high levels in the brain and retina). It plays a key role in child's brain development and retinal tissue. However, during pregnancy and lactation, requirements rise. DHA is not insured by the diet because the consumption of fatty fish source of DHA is insufficient. VIDOFE® provides the 124-mg / d of DHA for the proper development of the brain and retina of the child.
