Preconception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, are some of the most important stages in your life. As you experience the miracle of conceiving, becoming pregnant, and bringing new life into this world, your vitamin, mineral, and nutrient requirements change significantly.

During these stages, key vitamins and minerals play important roles in supporting an enjoyable, healthy and successful pregnancy.

DHA is included to support healthy fetal brain and eye development,15-29 and is proven to increase the IQ of children at 4-years of age.30 In particular, Vertili™ is formulated with Triglyceride (TG) DHA, with TG DHA proven to be up to 70% more bioavailable than regular Ethyl-Ester (EE) DHA.31

Vertili™ also includes Iodine for proper thyroid function and brain development,32-38 non-constipating Iron to support increased blood volume and prevent anemia,39-43 Vitamin D3 to support calcium absorption and bone development,44-56 and Vitamin B6 to prevent morning sickness.57-61

Usage

As a dietary supplement to support a healthy pregnancy and fetal development, take 3 Vertili™ capsules daily. While it is preferable to take Vertili™ in the morning with or before breakfast, Vertili™ can be taken at anytime during the day.

Warning

Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

Ingestion of more than 3 grams per day of omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to have potential antithrombotic effects, including an increased bleeding time and International Normalized Ratio (INR). Administration of omega-3 fatty acids should be avoided if you are taking anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication and/or have an inherited or acquired bleeding diathesis.

Folic acid in doses above 0.1mg daily may reverse the hematological manifestations of B12 deficiency, and obscure the detection of B12 deficiency and pernicious anemia.

Vertili™ should always be dispensed under the guidance of a health care provider and the recommended dosage should never be exceeded.
