Thanks to its unique nutritional complex, supplemented with vegetable omega-3 fatty acids, She+ Pre-pregnancy provides women who wish to become pregnant with high-quality supplements specifically adapted for this situation, thus stimulating fertility and providing specific nutrients for the proper development of the foetus, while preserving the nutritional reserves of the future mother.
The preconception period is an important period to provide essential nutrients to promote fertility and to promote the proper course of pregnancy as well as the proper development of the foetus. The recommendations of health authorities and physicians converge towards supplementation. However, not all nutritional supplements are of the same quality.
She+ Pre-pregnancy contains all active and easily absorbable (optimally bioavailable) vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids in order to provide women wishing to have a child with the necessary nutrients to boost fertility, support the healthy development of the foetus during its first weeks of life and to provide vitality and energy.
All our ingredients have been carefully selected to provide the best bioavailability. For example, folic acid in the form of Metafolin®, an innovative and easily absorbable source of folic acid, or the bio-active magnesium Aquamin from a red seaweed from the seas surrounding Iceland.
She+ Pre-pre-pregnancy consists of a pill pot containing a complex of multivitamins, minerals and amino acids supplemented by a pill pot of soft gel capsules providing omega-3 fatty acids from seaweed. Unlike other formulas on the market, our oil is not mixed with vitamins and minerals so we can guarantee better stability, purity, effectiveness and good assimilation.
Folic acid, also known as vitamin B9, is a vitamin belonging to the folic acid family. Folates contribute to the growth of maternal tissues during pregnancy. Low maternal folate status increases the risk of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.
Vitamin B6 helps to regulate hormonal activity, zinc contributes to good fertility. Both nutrients are essential to improve the chances of becoming pregnant. Lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant. Copper, vitamins B2, C and E, selenium and zinc help to protect cells against oxidative stress by reducing the free radicals responsible for poor fertility. Inositol has recently been the subject of numerous studies designed to highlight its mode of action to improve the quality of women’s oocytes, which also increases fertility.
In order to have all the resources and vitality needed during pregnancy, it is necessary to recharge the energy levels. Vitamins B9, B5, B2, B6, B12, C, magnesium and iron help to reduced fatigue. Similarly, magnesium, iron, vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and C also contribute to a normal energy metabolism.
Many women are anaemic (iron deficiency) due to menstruation. Anaemia contributes to fatigue in women. That is why a supplement of iron is important. Iron contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. In order to properly assimilate it, we have added vitamin C which increases the absorption of iron as well as vitamin B2 which contributes to the normal metabolism of iron.
Copper, iron, zinc, vitamins B6, B9, B12, C, D and selenium contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.
The docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contained in the algae oil capsules contributes to normal heart function, in particular of the foetus.

Nutritional needs of women and the anticipated foetus
Even with a varied and balanced diet, one in three women suffers from vitamin and mineral deficiencies during pregnancy. In this period the need for iron and vitamin D doubles while the need for iodine and vitamin B9 increases by 30%. It is therefore extremely important to anticipate pregnancy.
A dietary supplement with adequate and bioavailable vitamins and minerals helps to better prepare the body for a future pregnancy while optimising the chances of becoming pregnant quickly.
She+ Pre-pregnancy has been specially formulated to meet the needs of women planning a pregnancy in order to optimally prepare for the upcoming pregnancy.
Nutritional advice for women planning a pregnancy
Women who wish to become pregnant should pay particular attention to their diet. They must choose specific nutrients for fertility and vitality, as well as for the proper development of the future foetus.
What to avoid:
- Absorbing too much vitamin A. Therefore, liver and products derived from liver. An excess of vitamin A is detrimental to the foetus.
- Fish containing mercury, such as shark, swordfish or marlin.
- Soya beans and soya products that contain phytoestrogens can disrupt your hormonal activity.
Nutrients necessary for women planning a pregnancy:
Folates that reduce the risk of congenital malformations of the foetal neural tube. These are mainly present in leafy green vegetables such as spinach, cabbage and lettuce. Also found in grains and legumes (corn, chickpeas, etc.)
Antioxidants, such as lipoic acid, selenium, copper, zinc, vitamins C and E, that capture free radicals and thus increase fertility. Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants.
Iron: Iron deficiency is common in women, leading to fatigue and shortness of breath. During pregnancy, the increase in blood volume causes an increased need for iron. Red meat, but also legumes and leafy green vegetables are a rich source of iron. Vitamin C, present in fruit (citrus fruits, kiwis, red fruits) and brightly coloured vegetables, ensures better iron assimilation.
Iodine is absolutely essential for the development of the baby’s brain and for the function of the mother’s thyroid gland. Iodine needs increase during pregnancy while iodine deficiency in pregnant women is common. Iodised salt, seafood, milk and eggs are rich in iodine.
Our diet often contains insufficient essential fatty acids while they are indispensable for the development of the foetus’ brain and eyes. The best food sources are fatty fish (herring, mackerel, tuna, salmon), seafood and products from animals fed with linseed.
