Obimin™

Pre- and Post-natal supplement

What is the medicine used for?

  • This nutritional supplement has vitamins and minerals to help provide adequate supply of essential nutrients during pregnancy and lactation:

Folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12: Folic acid is necessary for the prevention of neutral tube defects (NTDs). NTDs are malformations of the baby’s brain and/or spinal cord which can be prevented by adequate folic acid intake particularly during the very early stages of pregnancy.

Folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 are required in the metabolism of homocysteine to prevent its accumulation in the blood. Elevated blood homocysteine or hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with common pregnancy outcomes such as prematurity and very low birth weight. Hyperhomocysteinemia is also identified as a risk factor in the development of cardiovascular diseases.

Iron and Iodine: Iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) is one of the most prevalent nutritional problems in the world. Pregnant women are at particularly high risk of iron-deficiency because iron needs during this stage is very high. Iron is required for the proper development of the baby’s spinal cord and the white matter of the brain. Iron, together with iodine, helps in the proper mental development and cognition of babies.

B-Complex Vitamins (Vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, Nicotinamide and Calcium Pantothenate): To help optimize conversion of food into energy that the body can utilize for numerous physiologic processes such as respiration, digestion, blood circulation, and immune system response.

Calcium and vitamin D: To help maintain strong bones and teeth and protect against osteoporosis later in life. Calcium builds the baby’s teeth and bones which begin in the first trimester of pregnancy and continues through term. Vitamin D increases calcium absorption in the intestine.

Vitamins A and C: To trap harmful free radicals through their protective antioxidant effects and help boost immune system. Vitamins A and C also maintain good eyesight and healthy skin.
