PreNatal complex formula contains pure intact Norwegian brown seaweed, vitamins and minerals designed for pregnancy and lactating. The main benefits reported for vitamin/mineral PreNatal formulas are reduced risk of neural tube defects, maternal anemia, nervous system and cognitive development of babies.
Why Norwegian Brown Seaweed
Brown seaweed is a natural source of iodine, called chelated iodine, which is treated very differently by the body.
Organic iodine could prove to be extremely helpful in preventing neurological impairment in the developing baby, and could positively affect the baby’s reading ability later in life.
• It is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are necessary for fetal brain development and of non starch polysaccharides, a gel-forming fiber, which can help reduce constipation, improve digestive function during pregnancy and that helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels and triglycerides.
• Brown seaweed contain high concentrations of nutrients that can help a developing baby grow and thrive.
Another studies on iodine from seaweeds (Ascophyllum nodosum) at the University of Glasgow showed a more sustained release of iodine from the seaweed than from an artificial source, which gave a much larger initial peak in iodine in the body and then was more quickly excreted.
84% of Women are Unaware of the Importance of Iodine During Pregnancy
Iodine insufficient diet can cause issue to the cognitive development of babies and damaging IQ levels. Iodine is required for the production of thyroid hormones, crucial for the baby’s brain and nervous system development in the womb and in early childhood.
The study conducted on Japanese women has revealed that the consumption of seaweed when pregnant could reduce the risk of depressive symptoms in women to a considerable extent.
Iodine insufficiency is a huge, and under-reported problem in many parts of Europe. Iodine deficiency affects 1.9 billion people globally and is the most preventable cause of intellectual disability.
