Multivitamins and minerals with taurine.
Pregnant women more often than not, have difficulty in controlling and balancing their diets. This is basically due to poor eating habits. As a consequence, pregnant women and their babies may lack the essential nutrients that are needed during this critical period.
Natalwiz contains vitamins, minerals and amino acid (taurine), which is involved in pre/postnatal nervous and visual system development. Taurine plays a variety of roles like the normalization of the function of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes and vascular system. It is the most abundant free amino acid in the heart and contributes to the heart muscle's contractility and regulation of its rhythm. Taurine is also essential to fetal and newborn CNS development. The newborn obtain taurine from mother's milk since they cannot produce taurine during the early stage of development.

Vitamin C also facilitates the absorption of iron to prevent anemia.

Natalwiz contains iron which is necessary in the formation of hemoglobin and important to cellular respiration and calcium and zinc which are necessary for the formation and development of strong bones.
