Zita West Revital Essence - 90 tablets (1 month's supply) The Fourth Trimester (0 - 16 weeks following birth)
Many of the women we see at the Clinic are so focussed on getting through labour that they neglect to think about how best to look after themselves, as well as their babies, following the birth. It is easy to under-estimate the physical, mental and emotional demands that these early months can bring for a new mother. The more you can keep your body well nourished and nutritionally balanced, the quicker it will heal and the better you will be able to get on top of your new responsibilities and routine.
We’ve added lots of new goodies into this new formula, all of which can be passed on to your baby through your milk if you are breast-feeding. For example, there’s Beta Carotene, to help protect, safely, against Vitamin A deficiency and cell mutation. And a much broader and more effective range of anti-oxidants to help support the immune system.
One tablet, taken three times a day with food, will provide, alongside a good diet, the most important micro-nutrients you need during the three to four months it takes your body to return to its pre-pregnant condition. The tablets are suitable for vegetarians. They are free from artificial colours, preservatives and gluten and are certified non-GM. Contains yeast.
Should you decide to breast-feed, we recommend that ReVital Essence should be taken in conjunction with VitalDHA, as you will be able to pass on the benefit of the supplement to your baby through your milk.
Please note: Revital Essence is completely safe to take whilst breast-feeding.

ReVital Essence – Ingredients and Their Benefits
B vitamins – important for the normal functioning of the immune system and regulation of a mother’s hormonal activity.
Beta Carotene – helps protect, safely, against Vitamin A deficiency and cell mutation. Passed on through mother’s milk. Newly added, at 4 mg.
Calcium – helps with the development of the nervous system and strong bones and teeth. Now increased to 500mg.
Choline – an essential nutrient required by the body to make important compounds necessary for healthy cell membranes.
Co-enzyme Q10- helps to release energy by releasing oxygen. Oxygen is needed for tissue repair and immune function following the birth.
Folic Acid – contributes to normal blood formation and normal cell division. Supplementation can be valuable as good supplies are hard to get from food alone.
Fruit extracts – (pomegranate, grapeskin, bilberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry). Extra fruit extracts added for the post-natal period, along with Alpha-Lipoic Acid and N-Acetyl Cysteine, to provide a broader and more effective spectrum of anti-oxidants to help support the immune system.
Iodine – an essential micro-nutrient in the human diet, most particularly as a component of thyroid hormones, which play a vital role inthe regulation of metabolic processes such as growth and energy expenditure.
Iron – needed by the mother to help build up haeomoglobin in the blood, especially if there has been considerable blood loss. Also helps to support normal cognitive function and to supply oxygen to the muscles.
Korean Ginseng – a helpful general pick-me-up tonic.
Lutein and Lycopene – Thought to help, amongst other things, to protect against free-radical damage to cells. Newly added.
Magnesium – essential for energy production, for proper nerve function and for every major metabolic reaction. Few enzymes (the protein molecules which carry the DNA’s instructions in the body) can work without it. Now increased to 250mg.
Phosphorus – vital for every chemical reaction in the body, as well as for energy production. Also good for skeletal growth.
Selenium – an important antioxidant to help prevent infection. Helps to protect DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. Now increased to 100ug.
Vitamin C – helps wounds to heal by manufacturing collagen, connective tissue and blood vessels. Supports the immune system, helps to fight infection and increases the body’s absorption of iron. Particularly valuable if you are breast feeding.
Vitamin E – gives antioxidant protection and helps to promote wound healing following the birth.
Vitamin K – controls blood clotting. Your child cannot manufacture Vitamin K within his or her own gut yet and relies on breast milk for his or her supply.
Zinc – helps to support the immune system and normal DNA synthesis. Levels of copper (which is antagonistic to Zinc) rise during pregnancy, reaching a peak just after the birth. The placenta is an exceedingly rich form of Zinc, which is why most animals eat the placenta after giving birth.
