FAQs

Pre-pregnancy supplements are boost for your body, packed with vital vitamins and minerals. They help you get ready for pregnancy by supporting your overall health, boosting fertility, and ensuring you have all the necessary nutrients for a great start.

What are the benefits of pre-pregnancy supplements.

Taking pre-conception vitamins helps fill in any nutritional gaps in your diet, supporting your reproductive health and enhancing your chances of conceiving. Depending on what is right for you, pre-pregnancy supplements can offer crucial nutrients like folic acid, iodine, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for your baby's early development.

Why pre-pregnancy supplements are important.

Pre-pregnancy supplements play a crucial role in preparing a woman's body for a healthy pregnancy journey. These supplements, particularly those containing folate instead of folic acid, offer significant benefits. Folate, found naturally in foods like leafy greens and citrus fruits, is essential for preventing neural tube defects in early pregnancy. Unlike folic acid, folate is more readily absorbed by the body, ensuring optimal levels to support fetal development from the earliest stages.

Iodine is vital for thyroid function, which regulates metabolism and supports normal growth and development. Adequate iodine intake before conception helps ensure healthy thyroid hormone production, crucial for both the mother's and baby's overall health. By incorporating these nutrients through pre-pregnancy supplements, women can enhance their fertility, reduce the risk of birth defects, and lay a strong foundation for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

What is an Optivance pre-pregnancy smoothie?

Optivance pre-pregnancy smoothie is both a supplement and a nutrient dense food. Having a smoothie provides activated folate, iodine, a multivitamin, omega 3 fatty acids as a supplement and protein, carbohydrates and fibre as a nutritious food. Not all supplements are created equal. Read our reviews from other mums.

What is activated folate?

Activated folic acid in the form of methyl folate is biologically active, hence the term activated. It is directly absorbed into the body to reduce the risk of neural tube defects. Biologically active folate is not affected by metabolic defects such as MTHFR gene mutation. Folic acid is the synthetic form which needs to be broken down by the body into the activated form. Optivance products do not contain synthetic folic acid, rather, they only contain the activated form of folate.

Can I use the Mummy Smoothie for pre-pregnancy and take a prenatal supplement?

The Optivance Mummy Smoothie for pre-conception is an alternative to prenatal supplement tablets. You take either your prenatal tablet or our Mummy Smoothie each day, but not both.

*The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) recommends folic acid is consumed at least one month prior to conception and throughout the first trimester of the pregnancy.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I started the Mummy Smoothie about 2 months prior to conception when hubby found Optivance online - after using another product for almost a year prior. The difference to my energy levels was immediately noticeable and I continued taking them throughout my pregnancy. It has been the quality of the ingredients and the real life translation to increased energy levels that has impressed me. I especially found the versatility of the smoothie the best, even on the days when I had all day nausea through my first trimester, knowing I was getting the nutrient support I needed gave me peace of mind. The flavour is not overpowering and lends itself to mixing all kinds of fruits in. Truly a great product!

PRE-CONCEPTION SUPPLEMENT ESSENTIALS

Activated Folic Acid

400mcg daily is crucial in the early stages of pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects in the developing fetus. Activated folic acid has a higher priority and trumps regular folic acid.

Iodine

Iodine is required for healthy thyroid function and brain and bone development.

Vitamins & Minerals

The demand for certain vitamins and minerals such as folic acid, iron, calcium, rises during pregnancy. Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks that directly affect energy levels and brain function.

Protein

Expansion of blood volume and growth of the maternal tissues require substantial amounts of protein. Growth of the fetus and placenta also places protein demands on pregnancy.

Probiotics

Maternal probiotic supplementation has been shown to correlate with a healthy gut and immune system.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Essential for the neurological development of the baby. It is found in fatty fish and some fortified foods, but many women do not consume enough of these sources. Omega 3 supplements can ensure adequate intake for fetal and infant brain development.
