Pregnancy Supplement

When we found out that my wife was pregnant, we immediately get Blackmores Pregnancy Formula and Folic Acid 500mcg supplement as we've been informed by a doctor to buy supplement from any pharmacy shop.

Soon we found a gynae and visited during the 2nd month of pregnancy, and we're been introduced on a supplement call Obical and Obimin Pluz. Both supplement cost RM 85.


Component Purpose
Calcium Building block for strong bones and teeth
Vitamin D Need to facilitate calcium absorption
Phosphorous and Magnesium Bone-fortifying minerals are required for formation of strong bone matrix. Magnesium may also help to counter constipation. Constipation is common in pregnancy.
Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS) FOS are prebiotics, “food” to beneficial intestinal bacteria (probiotics), which helps to support good intestinal health. Studies have also shown that FOS helps to increase calcium absorption and bone mineralization.

Obimin Pluz

DHA Building blocks of the brain and eye (retina)
