Prenatal Care CellSentials

A comprehensive vitamin supplement for pregnant women and their developing babies

USANA’s CellSentials Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant supplies a carefully formulated range of pure, high-quality vitamins at safe levels that help support your healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.*

THE BENEFITS OF CELLSENTIALS PRENATAL VITA-ANTIOXIDANT

When it comes to optimal health, it is often necessary to consume amounts of nutrients that are higher than the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance), which are generally considered the minimal recommendations for avoiding de ciency. When you’re pregnant, your nutritional needs are increased, but many prenatal vitamins provide only the minimal RDA amounts for pregnant women.

Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant provides essential vitamins, including folic acid and vitamin A (as beta carotene), to help support the healthy growth and development of your baby—before, during, and after pregnancy. Plus, it will provide added nutrition to help you maintain your energy level, and support your immune system. Additionally, it will help your body recover after giving birth.*

Healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord defect. Because it is needed for closure of the neural tube in the very rst weeks of pregnancy, any woman of childbearing years should take folic acid. When taken as directed, Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant is an excellent source of 600 μg of folic acid, which is more bioavailable than the folate you’ll nd in food.

The B vitamins, which include thiamin, ribo avin, niacin, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, biotin, and pantothenic acid, are important to support energy metabolism and healthy organ development. Vitamins B6 and B12 also support red blood cell formation, which is critical because a woman’s blood volume increases by nearly 50 percent during pregnancy. Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant provides 32 mg of B6 and 200 μg of B12 in each daily dose.

THE SCIENCE OF CELLSENTIALS PRENATAL VITA-ANTIOXIDANT

The rapidly dividing cells of the developing fetus require biotin to aid in regulating healthy cellular responses. Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant is an excellent source of biotin.

Vitamin A is important during fetal development and supports formation of the circulatory system, heart, eyes, ears, and limbs. Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant is a good source of provitamin A. It contains 15,000 IU of beta carotene per day, which is similar to the level contained in one carrot. The beta carotene form of vitamin A is a safe, non-retinoid form of this essential nutrient that poses no toxicity risk.

Another important antioxidant, vitamin C is essential for helping the body make collagen, which is a building block for cartilage, tendons, bones, and skin. It also supports iron absorption.*

Aside from helping to develop strong bones and teeth by aiding calcium absorption, recent studies have shown a positive correlation between maternal vitamin D status and healthy neonatal outcomes, including healthy birth weight. Prenatal Vita-Antioxidant is rich in vitamin D.* Depending on your diet and the amount of sunlight you get regularly, you may want to also add USANA’s Vitamin D supplement to your nutritional regimen (see page 29).
