All nutrients are important during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The following provides additional information on some nutrients important during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Iron – Pregnant women and new mums commonly feel fatigued. Healthy iron levels are important in pregnancy to help support energy levels. Iron is necessary for formation of haemoglobin in red blood cells, which transports oxygen to the tissues.
Approximately 50% of Australian women of reproductive age have dietary intakes of iron below the RDI. Low iron levels are common during times of increased iron requirement due to growth and increased blood volume, such as pregnancy. However, approximately one quarter of pregnant women report getting constipated when taking high doses of supplemental iron.
Why the bisglycinate form of iron?
Iron bisglycinate is a low constipation, low nausea form of iron that is well tolerated and gentle on the digestive system. This form of iron has been shown to be more bioavailable than some other forms of iron including ferrous sulphate, when taken with food.
Iodine – Iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones, which in turn, are critical for the development of baby’s brain, visual motor skills and hearing. Iodine supports the development of normal intelligence and IQ. Requirement for iodine is increased during the whole pregnancy, especially the first 20 weeks.
