Give Me 5 in just 2 Baby Steps!


Unique 2-step regimen

Morning tablet, Evening tablet

Iron and Calcium are separated

 

The purpose of taking two tablets at two different times of day is to:*

  • prevent calcium from stopping iron absorption
  • let vitamin C help iron be better absorbed by your body

In addition, folic acid has been shown to bind iron. By taking these components in separate tablets, this potential interaction may be avoided.*

 

The morning tablet
The morning tablet contains a total of 13 supplements, including iron and vitamin C to facilitate iron absorption*. It should be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water.

 

The evening tablet
The evening tablet contains 4 additional supplements, including calcium and 5 mg of folic acid, to avoid iron interactions*. It should be taken approximately 1 hour before or after your evening meal.

 

Mteryti® Folic 5 is supplied in a 30-day blister pack containing 30 oval, pink (a.m.) tablets* to be taken in the morning and 30 oval, blue (p.m.) tablets to be taken in the evening. Both tablets are imprinted with the pink image of a pregnant woman.

Remember, taking vitamin and mineral supplements does not replace your need to eat well or take care of yourself in other ways. Please take this, and all medications, as your healthcare provider recommended.

 

Keep your supplements stored in a safe place out of the reach of young children.

 

Importantly, the higher folic acid content (5 mg) makes Mteryti® Folic 5 suitable for women at higher risk for a NTD - affected pregnancy, when recommended by a healthcare professional.

 

 

Important Risk Information

Women who consume healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce their risk of having a child with birth defects of the brain or spinal cord. Public health authorities recommend that women consume 0.4 mg folic acid daily from fortified foods or dietary supplements, or both, to reduce the risk of neural tube defects. The safe upper limit of daily intake value for folic acid is 1,000 mcg (1 mg). This product exceeds the DV (1,000 mcg) of folic acid. Folate intake should not exceed 250% of the DV (1,000 mcg). However, Mteryti® and Mteryti® folic 5 tablets may be appropriate for some women under a healthcare professional's supervision.

Folic acid and pregnancy… Why?


There is strong evidence that taking a multivitamin containing folic acid before and during pregnancy can significantly reduce the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs).

 

What are NTD's?

  • NTDs happen when the neural tube (the start of your baby’s nervous system such as the brain, spine, and spinal cord) does not develop properly.
  • The neural tube develops early in your pregnancy, usually in the first month of pregnancy, before you may even know that you are pregnant.

Women who have poor folate status from multifactorial dietary and environmental conditions, women with certain medical conditions may have an increased risk for a NTD-affected pregnancy. Women should discuss folic acid supplementation with their heathcare professional as early as possible when planning a pregnancy.

Women who consume healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce their risk of having a child with birth defects of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250% of the DV (1,000 mcg). The safe upper limit of daily intake value is 1,000 mcg (1 mg). This product may be appropriate for some women. This product exceeds the DV (1,000 mcg) of folic acid and it is recommended to consult with your healthcare professional prior to use.

Pregnancies affected by a NTD may result in a miscarriage or stillbirth, and children born with a NTD may have mild to severe disability or die in early childhood.

Folic Acid and Pregnancy Picture

Gentle and easy to take


Pregnant women with dietary restrictions can still get the folic acid they need.

Prenatal vitamins are not “one size fits all”. Dr. Lisa Masterson explains.

Smaller tablets are easy to swallow

  • Smaller sized tablets may be easier to swallow, especially if you are experiencing nausea and vomiting or have difficulty taking large tablets

Packaged for convenience and safety

  • Individually sealed (blister pack) to eliminate unpleasant odors
  • Blister pack also helps you keep track of daily tablet-taking
  • Designed to help keep children away from medication and to decrease the probability of a child ingesting all tablets in the box

Minimize gastrointestinal discomforts

  • Formulated to minimize side effects commonly associated with MultiVitamin/MultiMineral supplements and to optimize the absorption of the most essential nutrients during pregnancy (i.e. folic acid, iron, calcium).

Suitable for women with food constraints

Lactose, gluten and tartrazine free
