Trocà® DHA - capsule gastroprotette | Laborest

Trocà® DHA

Pregnancy and breastfeeding are particularly delicate moments in which diet plays a crucial role, not only for the mother’s wellbeing but also for the foetus’s and then the newborn baby’s wellbeing. The pregnant mother’s metabolism increases and her daily nutritional requirements change, in particular Iron and Folic Acid requirements. The requirement of vitamins A, C, D, of B vitamins and some minerals such as Fluorine, Iodine and Zinc also increase, which cannot always be provided by diet in adequate amounts. Trocà® Maternum DHA is a complete supplement of vitamins and minerals, whose formulation has been designed to meet the needs of the body during pregnancy, thus meeting the nutritional needs of the mother, the foetus and the newborn baby during breastfeeding.

Ingredients

Food supplement containing Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), Vitamins and Mineral salts.

Docosahexaenoic Acid(DHA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, the main component of biomembranes, especially of the brain and retina, where it plays both a structural and functional role. According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), in western countries people have on average a 100-200 mg DHA daily deficiency. DHA promotes normal brain and eye development in the foetus.

The beneficial effect is obtained by taking 200 mg of DHA every day in addition to the recommended daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids which is 250 mg of DHA and EPA.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are particularly delicate moments in which diet plays a crucial role, not only for the mother’s wellbeing but also for the foetus’s and then the newborn baby’s wellbeing. The pregnant mother’s metabolism increases and her daily nutritional requirements double, in particular Iron and Folic Acid requirements. The requirement of vitamins A, C, D, of B vitamins and some minerals such as Fluorine, Iodine and Zinc also increase, which cannot always be provided by diet in adequate amounts. Specifically:

  • Folic acid contributes to the growth of maternal tissues during pregnancy, to normal haematopoiesis, it reduces tiredness and fatigue and intervenes in the cell division process.
  • Iodine contributes to a healthy nervous system and to the normal production of thyroid hormones and to thyroid physiology.
  • Chelated iron is much more tolerable and does not cause the typical undesired effects of traditional products containing this mineral that are available on the market. Iron contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and of haemoglobin and to the normal transport of oxygen in the body.
  • Zinc contributes to good bone health and eyesight, to the physiological function of the immune system and to normal fertility and reproduction.
    The presence of minerals in chelated form (iron, zinc and copper) protects against DHA and vitamin oxidation.

Trocà® Maternum DHA is formulated specifically for women during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Take 1 enteric-coated tablet of TROCA’ ® MATERNUM DHA a day.
TROCÀ ® MATERNUM DHA can be taken also by people who are gluten or lactose intolerant or sensitive. Trocà® Maternum DHA is naturally lactose-free.

TROCA’® MATERNUM DHA is safe and has no side effects since it contains vitamins and minerals in line with recommended dietary allowance (R.D.A.) levels during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Therefore, at the recommended dosage (one capsule a day) it implies no risk of overdose or accumulation for the mother or child.

The Trocà® Maternum line includes Trocà® Maternum Basic, a food supplement containing Folic acid (Quatrefolic®) and Iodine.

The capsules are enteric-coated to avoid acid reflux that is typical of products containing DHA.
