A HEALTHY MOM EQUALS A HEALTHY BABY-PRENATAL SUPPLEMENTATION

Healthy babies begin their life from the moment of development in the womb. In human medicine, a complete perinatal supplementation protocol is recommended. Based on the current human research, a formulation has been constructed for marine mammals. Micronutrient supplementation with folic acid, vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, E, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, iodine, selenium, and omega fatty acids (EPA/DHA) play an significant role in physical health, including birth outcomes, fetal growth, infant physical development, and lactation. Animal Necessity Vitamin E is a combination of the alpha and gamma form. Research shows that alpha tocopherol inhibits the production of new free radicals, while gamma tochopherol is required to trap and neutralize existing free radicals. This is important in a pregnant animal for prevention of free radical formation. By adding Imuno-2865®, the maternal and fetal immune system remains strong as reproductive problems can occur during the prenatal, labor, and postnatal period. Placental ischemia-reperfusion injury has been associated with excessive production of reactive oxygen species causing release of placental factors that mediate the inflammatory response.

(1) Omega fatty acid supplementation during the prenatal and postnatal period has a positive effect on the growth and function of the central nervous system and cognitive development.

(2) Human studies have shown that maternal adaptations during pregnancy and lactation provide necessary calcium regardless of Vitamin D status.

(3) After the neonate is born, serum calcium concentrations drop from their high fetal levels to a trough below the adult level. In the vitamin D deficient or insufficient neonate, hypocalcemia can arise due to the poor penetrance of vitamin D and 25-hydroxyvitamin 25(OH)D into the milk.

(4) Recommendation for higher vitamin D dosing during pregnancy and lactation might be best directed toward sensuring that the neonate is vitamin D sufficient and that this sufficiency is maintained during infancy and beyond. Dosages are carefully selected, depending on weight, to make sure there is an adequate intake of micronutrients.
