(Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation)
Prenatal Multivitamin Complex has been especially formulated for women planning on getting pregnant, for women who are pregnant already and for breastfeeding mothers. Women must consider their own requirements and that of the baby during this important time. During pregnancy vitamins and minerals are needed for maintaining the mother’s health, for supporting the developing baby and to help prevent against birth defects.

Facts to consider:
During pregnancy the body’s need of iron increases; most mothers-to-be do not consume enough iron in their diet to meet this increase, therefore leading to iron-deficiency anaemia. The need for iron is most great during the last three months of pregnancy. Avoiding iron-deficiency anaemia will reduce the risk of preterm delivery, low birth weight and infant mortality. It is also important to consume an adequate amount of vitamin C as it enhances the absorption of iron.

Folic acid:
Studies have shown that women who are consuming enough of this B vitamin before conception and during the first 6 weeks of pregnancy, can reduce their baby’s risk of neural-tube defects such as spina bifida. It may also reduce other defects such as cleft lip, cleft palate and certain heart defects. A supplement is strongly recommended as it is known that the body absorbs the synthetic version of folic acid better then the natural one found in foods.

Zinc is know to reduce the frequency of low birth-weight babies.

Calcium & Phosphorus:
In the last three months of pregnancy skeletal growth is highest; the foetus will be taking calcium from the mother’s stores. Both calcium and phosphorus are vital to the developing bones and teeth. Studies have also shown that consuming adequate calcium lowers blood pressure and may reduce premature births.

It is often recommended that women continue to take prenatal vitamins while they are breastfeeding as it is a time of increased nutritional need. Research has shown that many of the vitamins and minerals present in prenatal vitamins pass through to the breast milk.

MAGNIFOOD Enhanced Nutrition
In order to get the most out of nutritional supplementation it's necessary to achieve an intense state of synergy in the body. Synergy occurs when an interaction between compounds produces effects that are greater than the combined individual effects of each one. To provide its optimum effect, each vitamin, mineral or any other nutrient must be efficiently absorbed, distributed, metabolised and utilised, and must participate in a wide array of synergistic interactions with enzymes, co-factors, other nutrients. So it's the environment in the body which dictates how beneficial a supplement will be.

Magnifood is a complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods. The ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body's biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product's vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant's enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant's original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested). The biochemical profile of a fresh freeze dried plant very closely resembles the profile of the original fresh plant, but in a much greater concentration, due to the removal of the plant's moisture content.

While Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation, its origins are deeply rooted in holistic principles. Within each Magnifood complex, the marriage between science and holism produces remarkable effects - effects which are powerfully active, delicately balanced and intensely, profoundly synergistic.

Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB) - SRB has one of nature's highest concentrations of the vitamin E-related compounds tocopherols and tocotrienols, as well as B-vitamins, fibre, essential fatty acids, minerals and more than 100 different compounds possessing antioxidant activity (such as alpha lipoic acid [which also recycles antioxidants such as vitamins C and E], coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), carotenoids and the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase and catalase).

Kale - Kale is a good source of many nutrients, with carotenoids and sulphur rich antioxidants such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol being among the most important.

Blackberry Fruit - Blackberries are among the highest ORAC rated antioxidant fruits and a potent source of anthocyanin flavonoids and carotenoids (especially zeaxanthin, lutein, beta carotene and cryptoxanthin).

Bilberry Fruit - In addition to its plentiful amounts of vitamin C and the mineral manganese, bilberry is especially known for its high concentration of anthocyanoside flavonoids, which have been researched for a wide array of potential health benefits. Among other areas, these flavonoids (which provide much of the blue-purple colour associated with bilberries) may play a significant role in supporting the health of collagen and connective tissue, the circulatory system and the eyes.

Pumpkin Seed - Pumpkin seeds are one of the most abundant natural sources the important micronutrient zinc, as well as supplying good levels of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide a high concentration of healthy fats.

Beet Juice & Greens - Beet root provides various B-vitamins (especially rich in folate), as well as significant levels of vitamin C, the minerals potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper and the important methyl donor betaine. Among other nutrients, beet greens additionally provide high levels of carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin.

Spinach - Spinach is an excellent source of nutrients, such as carotenoids (especially lutein and zeaxanthin), vitamins K and C, folic acid and manganese.
