During pregnancy the body badly needsan increased amount of nutrients and vitamins. The child in any case will get all the necessary complex of trace elements, but this can negatively affect the health of the future mother. Because of this, for many years, doctors recommend to take additional vitamin complexes, in particular - the "Elevit", the reviews about which are quite positive.
Complex "Elevit" is a preparation that includes 12 basic vitamins, 3 microelements and 4 minerals. Below is a list of these nutrients.
What is the benefit of vitamins?
To begin with, in the complex "Elevit" vitamins are the main components. Each capsule contains vitamins:
A, E, C, D3, B1, B2, PP, B5, nicotinamide, B9 (folic acid), B6, H, B12.
And also minerals:
1. Microelements - zinc, iron, manganese and copper.
2. Micronutrients - magnesium, calcium, phosphorus.
Let's not talk about the benefits of each element,only give general information. So, vitamin C has a positive effect on the formation of the baby's bones. Vitamin B12 is involved in the formation of blood cells, and also normalizes the activity of the nervous system. Vitamin A preserves the vision of women and promotes the formation of substances such as lipids, proteins, mucopolysaccharides.
In general, if you combine the descriptions of all vitaminsand minerals, it becomes clear that they are all necessary for a full-fledged diet of a pregnant woman, easy carrying of a child, maintaining pregnancy and normal fetal development.
Studying the information about Vitamins "Elevit", reviews, it can be understood that in the early stages of pregnancy this complex facilitates or completely eliminates toxicosis.
As indicated above, the composition contains folic acidacid. This element is taken in the period of pregnancy planning, and immediately after conception. It is necessary to exclude the possibility of neural tube defects, as well as to preserve the pregnancy and ensure the normal development of the embryo.
There is also magnesium in the composition, which also keeps the pregnancy. Separately, it is assigned when there is a tone and some other threat of interruption.
Having studied the composition of vitamins "Elevit", reviews, wefound that the complex lacks iodine. If necessary, it is taken separately (pharmacies sell special drugs). But remember that only a doctor appoints such complexes, one should not add them on their own. Excess of vitamins is also harmful, as well as a lack.
Next, consider the contraindications to the use of the complex "Elevit". The opinions of doctors confirm them:
· The presence of an allergy in a pregnant woman;
· Excess in the body of vitamins A and D, calcium;
· Presence of urolithiasis;
· Taking certain preparations containing calcium;

All this can lead to the abolition of the drug "Elevit Pronatal." The instruction contains all indications and contraindications, but in most cases the complex can be added to the ration.
The benefits of the drug have been proven many times.
In particular, it is worth noting the fact that a woman gets the opportunity to fully and rationally eat, not remembering toxicosis and not experiencing hunger.
