In the third trimester your blood volume increases by 40 percent, your pelvic joints expand and your breast tissue develops. Your baby is growing faster than at any other time in your pregnancy, doubling in size, increasing nerve cells, strengthening bones, maturing lungs, immune system and digestive tract, and laying down stores of fat, Iron, and Calcium. Brain cells are multiplying faster than at any other time in his or her life.

Zita West Vital Essence 3 overview

DOES NOT CONTAIN VITAMIN A
Free from artificial colours, preservatives, gluten and yeast. Non-GM.

The Third Trimester (28 - 40 weeks)

In the third trimester your blood volume increases by 40 percent, your pelvic joints expand and your breast tissue develops. Your baby is growing faster than at any other time in your pregnancy, doubling in size, increasing nerve cells, strengthening bones, maturing lungs, immune system and digestive tract, and laying down stores of fat, Iron, and Calcium. Brain cells are multiplying faster than at any other time in his or her life.

This new formulation of Vital Essence 3 is designed to help meet all these needs and to help you keep as fit and healthy as possible in preparation for labour, birth, and breast-feeding. See Countdown to Labour for more information on labour.

We recommend that you take Vital Essence 3 in conjunction with Vital DHA.

The new, improved formula, contains increased levels of Calcium, to help with muscle growth and nerve and muscle functions, and increased levels of Magnesium to help support the development of the liver and heart and with the metabolism of protein. Most of a baby's Calcium is deposited in this trimester as his or her bones and teeth harden. The foetus takes up Calcium at the rate of approximately 350mg a day during this stage of the pregnancy, so it is good to have a plentiful supply to prevent it being scavenged from your own skeleton. We've added Phosphorus to help with skeletal growth and the proper functioning of cell membranes. And there's plenty of Iron, to help with the manufacture of red blood cells in preparation for the birth, as well as good levels of Vitamin D and Vitamin B3. We've also included Choline to help with the production of healthy cell membranes, as well as Iodine, Co Q10 and Folic Acid. The formula also contains Beta Carotene, to help protect against possible Vitamin A deficiency and cell mutation, plus a wide range of other ingredients, such as Lutein, Lycopene, Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Pomegranate and Grapeskin Extracts, to help protect against free-radical damage to cells.

Vital Essence 3 - Ingredients and their Benefits

  • Beta Carotene - 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 the normal functioning of the nervous system. The concentration of biotin in breast milk is 15 times higher than in the mother's blood, which may suggest that Biotin is very important for a baby's growth and development.
  • Calcium - needed initially for the development of the nervous system and strong, healthy bones and teeth. Most of a baby's calcium is deposited in this trimester as its bones and teeth harden. The foetus takes up calcium at the rate of approx 350mg a day, so the mother needs a plentiful supply to prevent it being scavenged from her own skeleton.
  • 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 Q10 - a useful anti-oxidant, very good for boosting energy in the final stages of pregnancy when you are feeling tired and carrying extra weight.
  • Folic Acid (folate) - critically important for normal cell division and normal tissue growth during pregnancy. Supplementation can be important as good supplies may be hard to find through food alone.
  • Fruit extracts - (pomegranate and grapeskin). Added, along with Alpha-Lipoic Acid and N-Aacetyl Cysteine, to provide a broader and more effective spectrum of anti-oxidants.
  • 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 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 the DNA's instructions in the body) can work without it.
  • Phosphorus - along with Calcium, one of the 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 - an important anti-oxidant, helping to support a mother's defences against infection as well as helping to protect DNA.
  • Vitamin C - A valuable antioxidant. Helps to protect against damage to chromosones. 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 - an essential ingredient of prothrombin, which causes blood to clot. It is made naturally by bacteria in the gut, but a baby is born with a sterile gut and has to get vitamin K from its mother.
  • Zinc - essential for the normal function of the immune system and the proper metabolism of fatty acids and Vitamin A. Critically important for normal fertility and reproduction.
