Food supplement
As with other supplements, seek professional advice before using if you are under medical supervision or suffer from food allergies. Do not take if you are allergic to soya, fish or fish products. Food supplements must not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Contains high purity fish oil. As Pregnacare contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin) do not take Pregnacare except on the advice of a doctor. Vitamin K is not known to specifically interact with the action of aspirin or heparin. This product contains iron, which if taken in excess, may be harmful to young children.
Store below 25°C in a dry place, out of sight and reach of children.

Why has Pregnacare Max been developed?
Pregnacare Max has been developed for mums-to-be who want maximum nutritional support from Pregnacare. This advanced formula helps to safeguard daily intake of nutrients important during pregnancy. It provides 400μg folic acid, incorporating the special, readily bioavailable form L-Methylfolate, together with other essential vitamins and minerals, including 10μg Vitamin D, 500mg Calcium, plus 300mg DHA.
It is important to follow the directions and take the recommended two MAX tablets per day, to ensure that you obtain the recommended level of 400μg folate (folic acid).
What is the difference between Pregnacare Max and Pregnacare Plus?
Pregnacare Max is the “next generation formula” for maximum support throughout pregnancy. With L-Methylfolate, a specially efficient form of folic acid, making this the ultimate formula in the Pregnacare range. Pregnacare Max also includes 500mg Calcium with supporting nutrients, Vitamin D3 and Magnesium.
The table below provides a formula comparison for Pregnacare Original which does not contain any fish oil, Plus and Max:
 
Why are Omega-3 fatty acids important?
Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA. These fatty acids are especially important during pregnancy as maternal intake contributes to the normal foetal brain and eye development.
How pure is the fish oil in Pregnacare Max?
What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil produced in Norway, has been used in Pregnacare Max capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.
Can I use Pregnacare Max during Breast-feeding?
Pregnacare Max is suitable to use throughout pregnancy, however, we would recommend using our Pregnacare Breast-feeding supplement which has been carefully formulated for postnatal wellbeing. Pregnacare Breast-feeding formula includes higher levels of Calcium to help safeguard mums nutrition.
Can Pregnacare Max be used alongside medicines?
As a general rule, Pregnacare Max can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. However, if you are already taking prescribed supplements or medications, seek advice from your doctor or health professional first. As Pregnacare Max contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin) do not take Pregnacare Max except on the advice of a doctor. Vitamin K is not known to specifically interact with the action of aspirin or heparin. [Top]
How many tablets and capsules does one pack of Pregnacare Max contain?
Pregnacare Max contains 56 prenatal micronutrient tablets and 28 Omega 3 DHA capsules. It is recommended to take 2 tablets and one capsule per day
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Pregnacare Max ?
Pregnacare Max has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately
Is Pregnacare Max suitable for vegetarians?
No, Pregnacare Max is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Pregnacare Max contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA.
Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%. Is this safe during pregnancy?
RDA levels are calculated to help prevent the most basic vitamin and mineral deficiency states. The levels contained in Pregnacare Max are specific to normal requirements in pregnancy. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare Max are higher than the RDA (e.g. folic acid, the recommended level is 200% RDA). Importantly, all levels are safe for pregnancy and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation. [Top]

Does Pregnacare Max contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess may be harmful during pregnancy?

No. Pregnacare Max has been carefully formulated to contain betacarotene in preference to vitamin A. Betacarotene (pro-retinol) is converted into vitamin A when and if the body requires it, and is non-toxic. The Omega 3 capsule in Pregnacare Max is produced from fish oils that are free from Vitamin A and therefore safe to take throughout pregnancy. [Top]
I have been recommended by my midwife/G.P. to take a supplement containing 400 mcg of folic acid per day, only for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Is it safe to take a supplement containing folic acid (like Pregnacare Max), after this time?
It is perfectly safe to take 400 mcg of folic acid per day throughout the whole of pregnancy. The U.K. Department of Health's Chief Medical Officer recommends that women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement containing 400 mcg folic acid daily, from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. Folic acid is vital during this period for the normal, healthy development of your baby's neural tube. However, folic acid can be taken throughout pregnancy, not just up to the 12th week of pregnancy and Pregnacare Max gives the advantage of not only providing folic acid, but other essential nutrients as well
What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare Max and miss a day?
A regular intake is recommended, but don’t worry, this will not have done any harm. Simply take Pregnacare Max on the next day when you remember, and take as directed. You should not take more than the recommended amount on subsequent days to make up for any day(s) that you have missed. Whilst it is important to take a supplement every day, if you miss one day this is fine because the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals build over time.
