The NHS recommend that a daily supplement of 400mg folic acid is taken by all women trying to get pregnant and then for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. This is to help with spine and brain development.
Doctors recommend that pregnant and breastfeeding women also take a daily vitamin D supplement, and you’ll find a wide selection of tablets, capsules and drops at Bigvits.
For all new mum’s a vitamin B complex supplement can help maintain energy levels, this can be ideal when you’re tired after many sleepless nights. Supplements such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and vitamin E support healthy skin and hair, which can both lack lustre after pregnancy.
As children grow, they have differing nutritional needs. Vitamin D is crucial for healthy and strong teeth and bones. Our bodies make vitamin D when the sunlight hits our skin, so we are often deficient during the winter months. The NHS recommends that all children are given a daily vitamin D supplement from birth to four years old (unless they’re fed more than 500mls of vitamin D fortified infant formula a day). Bigvits stocks naturally flavoured vitamin D drops that can be safely given from birth – mix them with a drink or drop them directly onto the tongue.
