After bariatric surgery, the women’s nutritional needs as from the desire to get pregnant until the end of lactation are different, hence a pregnancy multivitamin multivitamin specifically developed to meet the nutritional needs of vitamins and minerals after bariatric surgery. During pregnancy, the baby develops very quickly and taking specific vitamins and minerals is essential.
BariNutrics® Prenatal is rich in folate (Quatrefolic®), the active form of folic acid. Folate plays an important role in tissue growth (cell division). A low folate level in women during fetal development is a risk factor for spinal cord defects (spina bifida or open back), so increasing the folate level of the mother through supplementation during the prenatal period and the 1st trimester of pregnancy is very important.
