Proteins are necessary for the growth, maintenance and repair of our body. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the protein needs are increased. Milk and whey in OptiMum contain amino-acids essential for foetus and infant’s growth. Calcium, a mineral that goes into bone composition, is essential for the formation of the skeleton, of the foetus and the baby. Calcium is useful for the mother, in order to maintain a healthy and strong skeletal structure.
Rich in minerals and vitamins especially iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin B9 (folic acid).
OptiMum is enriched in minerals and vitamins and is a rich source of iron and vitamin B12, which helps prevent the risk of anaemia for the mother and the baby. Folic acid plays a key role in foetus growth from the very start of the pregnancy. Indeed, vitamin B9 is essential for the good development of nerve tissue of the embryo.
