Preconception Superfood: How organic chicken liver capsules can help prepare for a healthy pregnancy

Feb 14, 2024

Nutrition is so important for optimising fertility and improving preconception health. If someone is trying to conceive, it’s also good to look into lifestyle choices like exercise and stress management. This blog focusses on some of the key nutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy journey.

What vitamins and minerals are important when preparing for pregnancy?

#1 Folate

Folate is probably the number 1 supplement people are recommended to take when trying to conceive and during pregnancy. It helps to prevent neural tube defects. Organic chicken liver is an excellent source of folate.


#2 Iron

Iron is the most common nutrient deficiency worldwide. It’s super important to make sure iron levels are good before pregnancy. Growing, birthing and breastfeeding a baby requires a lot of iron. Our organic chicken liver capsules contain a very bioavailable source of iron which makes it easy to absorb. This also means they don’t have any of the unwanted side effects that many conventional iron tablets cause (like constipation).


#3 Zinc
Zinc is a really important mineral for fertility. It helps with sperm and egg health. It helps with sperm production, motility and overall quality. Zinc is an antioxidant and helps protect the integrity of sperm and egg cells. It’s also necessary for a healthy immune system. Organic chicken liver is naturally a good source of zinc.

#4 Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is important for everyone when trying to conceive. It is necessary for proper nerve function and healthy DNA. Chicken liver is naturally high in vitamin B12.

#5 Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps with immune function, healthy vision and overall reproductive health. You may have heard that consuming excessive amounts of vitamin A over time can lead to vitamin A toxicity, also known as hypervitaminosis A.

It’s one of the questions we get asked: Is it safe to consume liver when pregnant?

Our Vitality Pills have been independently lab tested and contain just 50μg of retinol (vitamin A) per serve of 3 capsules. This is a VERY safe amount of natural Vitamin A that can be taken daily.
