Zita West Vital Essence 2 overview

The Second Trimester (13-28 weeks)

By the second trimester your baby’s limbs will be fully formed and the joints able to move. Eyelashes and eyebrows are beginning to grow, teeth are starting to develop in the jaw bones and fat stores are being laid down. The organs are maturing and the developing bones are continuing to ossify. The nervous system is becoming more developed and the brain is beginning to rapidly increase in size, its brain cells multiplying at an amazing 50,000 to 100,000 per second.
As your pregnancy progresses it is obviously important to make sure your vitamin and mineral intake is protected. Your appetite should return as early feelings of nausea and tiredness pass, but don’t be tempted to 'eat for two'. It is quality not quantity that counts, and excess weight gained now may be hard to shift later. Good nutrition is important for your baby’s development and for your own health during the pregnancy.
The new formulation of Vital Essence 2 provides everything you need to safeguard your everyday diet, including 400ug of Folic Acid (useful for a whole range of cellular activities, not just for helping to minimise the risk of spina bifida) plus lots of protective ingredients such as Beta Carotene (a safe way to help support your intake of Vitamin A), Copper, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc, all of which  support normal cell division and help to protect DNA. Take one tablet, three times a day (with food), alongside a good quality diet.
We recommend that Vital Essence 2 should be taken in conjunction with VitalDHA for maximum benefit to your overall nutrition.
All Zita West products are developed in response to the very latest research and are regularly reviewed and reformulated to remain at the cutting-edge of clinical and nutritional thinking for optimum reproductive health.

Vital Essence 2 - Ingredients and their Benefits

  • Betacarotene - helps protect, safely, against Vitamin A deficiency. Supports normal cell differentiation, normal function of the immune system as well as the normal metabolism of Iron.
  • Biotin – essential for metabolising most macronutrients as well as for the normal function of the nervous system. The concentration of biotin in breast milk is 15 times higher than in the mother’s blood, which suggests that Biotin may be very important for a baby’s growth and development.
  • Calcium - the need for Calcium in the diet continues to rise through the 2nd trimester even though the body becomes very efficient at absorbing it from food. Needed initially to help support normal neurotransmission and healthy bones and teeth. The foetus accumulates Calcium rapidly in the 1st trimester and a mother needs to continue to build up good stores so that plenty is available for her baby without depletion of her own bone material. Vegetarian mothers and those under 18 need to be especially careful to avoid deficiency.
  • Choline - an essential nutrient required by the body to make important compounds necessary for healthy cell membranes. Demand for Choline during pregnancy is very high due to its transfer from the mother to the foetus.
  • Co enzyme Q 10 - for increased energy and to help with cell division.
  • Folic Acid - Increased evidence of benefit of Folic Acid supplementation for a whole range of cellular activities throughout pregnancy, as well as helping to minimise the risk of spina bifida. Supplementation can be valuable as good supplies can be hard to find from food alone.
  • Fruit extracts - (pomegranate and grapeskin). Added, along with Alpha Lipoic Acid and N-Acetyl Cysteine, to provide a broader spectrum of antioxidants.
  • Iodine - an essential micro-nutrient in the human diet, most particularly as a component of thyroid hormones, which play a vital role in the regulation of metabolic processes such as growth and energy expenditure.
  • Iron – makes haeomoglobin, the substance which carries oxygen in the blood. Women often have low Iron status entering pregnancy because of menstrual blood loss. A common symptom of deficiency is pica, a craving for strange foods. Iron is not absorbed well without Vitamin C and taking it on its own can lead to the loss of essential minerals. Also important for the normal functioning of the immune system, normal cognitive function and normal cell division. 
  • Magnesium - essential for energy production, for proper nerve function and for every major metabolic reaction. Few enzymes (the protein molecules which carry out the DNA's instructions in the body) can work without it.
  • Phosphorus - along with Calcium, one of the main constituents of bone. It is present in every cell in the body, plays a part in every chemical reaction and is vital for energy production and proper skeletal growth.
  • Selenium  - a powerful antioxidant, especially important to help protect DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. Also important for the normal functioning of the immune and thyroid systems.
  • Vitamin C  - A valuable antioxidant. Helps to protect against damage to chromosomes. Also added to help with energy production, the formation of collagen and the (critically important) absorption of Iron.
  • Vitamin D - important to help maintain a healthy inflammatory response and the normal functioning of the immune system. The Department of Health now recommends that all women should consider supplementing with Vitamin D during pregnancy. Recent research from our Clinic shows that over half of all women who have their Vitamin D status tested are deficient.
  • Vitamin E - essential for metabolism and the development of the nervous system.
  • Vitamin K - essential for making blood clotting factors in the liver.
  • Zinc - vitally important for much of the body's cellular activity, including cell division, normal metabolism of Fatty Acids and cognitive functions. Critical for normal fertility and reproduction.
