Never before has immunity been so important. But during pregnancy, when the body is more vulnerable to invading micro-organisms, there is an even greater need to keep the immune system functioning at top capacity.
Not only does this protective vitamin support immunity, it also helps to regulate the amount of calcium in the body, which is needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
Public Health England recommends that pregnant women should take vitamin D throughout their pregnancy and also while breastfeeding to ensure that their baby has enough vitamin D for the first few months of life.
Daily vitamin D supplementation is especially important during the winter months, for those who do not spend much time outdoors, or for those with darker skin (for example, people of African, African Caribbean or South Asian origin).
Her9 contains vitamin D3, which is the same form of vitamin D that our bodies produce naturally from sunlight. Normally derived from lanolin (sheep’s wool), we have used a vegan-friendly form of vitamin D3 from mushrooms to support a variety of diets and lifestyles.
