The mother's health and the development of the baby are also dependent on proper nutrition during pregnancy, and the mother's normal diet alone will not always be adequate. Horlicks Mother's Plus has been trusted for over two decades and is clinically formulated to have tailored care for maternity and lactation. It contains 25 essential nutrients that are necessary for the mother's health and the growth of the infant. During breastfeeding, it contains 100 percent RDAs of Vitamin B2, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin C, and during lactation, it contains 100 percent RDAs of Folic acid and Iron. A newborn baby1 is fully reliant on the mother's milk for nutrients during the first six months of life. As a result, it's important that the new mother receives enough nutrients to satisfy her own needs as well as the needs of her son. Horlicks Mother's Plus includes micronutrients that are believed to promote a healthy birth weight (iron, iodine, folic acid, zinc, magnesium, vitamin A, B6, B12, vitamin D, and protein). It also includes DHA and Choline, which are known to aid with brain development, as well as micronutrients including Vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, A, D, Iodine, and Selenium, which are known to help with breast milk consistency. Horlicks Mother's Plus has 50 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of immune-supporting nutrients including Vitamin A, E, B6, and Selenium.
