The Nutriseal Difference

Our patented encapsulation technology means your body absorbs more nutrients from our prenatal

Nutriseal is a patented capsule within a capsule technology that allows targeted delivery of nutrients to the body.
As the capsules break down over time, it allows a slow release of nutrients - simulating the same process that happens when you eat food.
The slow release process allow an excellent and well tolerated absorption.
The DHA oil in the outside capsule further increased chances of absorption by protecting the inner ingredients from light heat and moisture.

Got questions?
We have the answers.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for email us!

Does your prenatal contain folate?

Yes it does! Our Key Essentials prenatal includes folate in the form of folinic acid. This is an activated form of folate that all women can absorb whether or not they have an MTHFR genetic variation.

How often should I be taking prenatal vitamins?

Take one capsule of our Prental Vitamins twice per day with a main meal for optimal absorption or consult with your healthcare professional.

Are the prenatal vitamin capsules easy to swallow?

Yes. Perdays Pregnancy Key Essentials & DHA features our patented Nutriseal™ encapsulation technology, while ensuring slow-release absorption, we also keep the size small. You don’t need to open the capsule to consume its contents.

When should I start taking a prenatal multivitamin?

Generally, you should start taking prenatal supplements and prenatal vitamins 1-3 months before you start trying to conceive, or as advised by your health care provider.

Taking prenatal vitamins like Perdays Key Essentials & DHA earlier helps build up your stores of key nutrients like folate, iron, zinc, and iodine. This not only improves your fertility and reduces the time to pregnancy but also ensures you and your baby are nourished in the earliest days of pregnancy (yes, even before you get that positive pregnancy test!).

This is also when your body’s demands for micronutrients like folate and iodine must be met to ensure the healthy development of your little one!

Already pregnant? No worries! It is recommended to start on a prenatal multivitamin right away, it’s not too late to start nurturing you and your baby!

How long should I take a prenatal for?

You should always consult with your healthcare professionals. You may start taking our prenatal vitamins 1-3 months before you start trying to conceive and continue throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding your baby.

Can I take prenatal supplements even if I am not pregnant?

Please consult with your healthcare professionals.

Can I take prenatal vitamins if I am breastfeeding?

Please consult with your healthcare professionals. Perdays Key Essentials & DHA is designed to support your preconception and pregnancy health.

How do I switch prenatal multivitamin brands?

You should always consult with your healthcare professionals. You can switch by start taking your Perdays Key Essentials & DHA, 1 capsule twice per day, instead of your old prenatal multi-vitamin, it is best not suggested to mix two different prenatal multi-vitamins, unless advised by your healthcare professionals.

Can taking a prenatal vitamin help me get pregnant faster?

Getting pregnant is complex, and there are many individual factors at play that are best evaluated by your healthcare team. However, research does show that women who take a prenatal vitamin containing folate and iron have a reduced time to pregnancy.

Plus, you’ll feel comforted knowing that you are supporting a healthy pregnancy from day 1 and reducing the risk of complications for you and your growing baby!

Why does your prenatal contain folinic acid? How is this different from folic acid?

Folic acid comes in many forms, and they all work differently in the body. Folic acid found in many prenatal supplements requires specific enzymes to break down the folic acid for it to be activated.

However, many women are incapable of producing these enzymes to break down the folic acid and therefore are unable to receive the benefits of this crucial nutrient. We have included folinic acid (a pre-activated form of folic acid) to ensure that this nutrient is bioavailable for all women.

According to leading health bodies, around 25% of the population is predicted to have a difference in the genetic makeup of the enzyme responsible for activating folate, which may impact your folate status.

So, no matter your genetic makeup, you can nurture yourself and your little one from day one with Perdays Key Essentials with DHA.

Of course, if you’re unsure about what form of folate is right for you, consult with your healthcare provider.

I am vegetarian / vegan. Is Perdays Pregnancy Key Essential & DHA suitable for me?

Yes, our ingredients and capsules are vegetarian AND vegan friendly!

    I haven’t used another prenatal brand to compare to but I have a good feeling that this is giving me and my baby everything I need! Beautiful packaging! It’s a shame to throw the bottle out when it’s finished though.

    Like the capsules very easy to swallow packaging is nice but not necessary as it probably makes cost more the only downside is the fishy burps afterwards

    The packaging is beautiful & delivery was super fast, but unfortunately i couldn’t use this product, it kept making me burp up a bad taste which made me feel worse because i am already nauseous. I had to go with a different brand. This product was recommended to me by my friends who loved it! I really wanted to use it but not sure what caused my reaction.

    You can tell it’s a quality product with considered chemistry, but I only take perdays when I’m not having a rough day…the fish burps are traumatic

    • stephanie (store manager)

      Hello! We find that Pregnancy Key Essentials capsules are best taken during a meal to ensure optimal absorption of the precious DHA. We recommend that you “sandwich” the capsule between bites of food, that way you shouldn’t have any unpleasant burps! P.S. Our DHA is derived from algae 🙂

    I absolutely loved taking Perdays Pregnancy Key Essentials & DHA, as well as Perdays Probiotic 360 & Vitamin D.

    I took Key Essentials and Probiotic 360 several months prior to getting pregnant and then throughout my entire pregnancy.

    I had a very healthy, happy and active pregnancy. I felt like Perdays really helped me feel good and do things everyday of my pregnancy that were good for me and my baby.

    I couldn’t recommend Perdays highly enough!

    Thank you, Perdays. 💚

    I have been taking these for a couple of months. Such an easy tablet to take. Does leave a slight fishy taste but I’m getting used to it (I don’t eat fish so may seem worse for me). I love that it’s Australian made and using the latest scientific evidence. Also in love with the packaging!

    I’m happy with these and will keep purchasing. They’re easy to swallow and I feel good taking them. The packaging is beautiful but I’m sure it’s adding a chunk to the cost and the vitamins are already quite expensive – I’d rather pay less and have regular packaging.

    I’ve been taking it three months before my pregnancy. It always makes me feel safe and good.

    Absolutely delighted! From the care reflected in packaging and every detail, these pills are absolutely amazing! No reflux, flavours but results. I could see immediate changes in my hair, skin and vitality just after starting taking them. Aesthetics makes them more appealing to take. Very happy with the product! Definitely a must to try if you haven’t.

    The packaging looks nice, although I am not sure whether it is recyclable as it is mix of plastic and glass. There is a slight fishy smell when I raise the pill to my mouth but I am sure whether that is avoidable. Overall I am satisfied so far.

    Easy to take and has a nice texture that doesn’t set off my gag reflex. The size is great too as it doesn’t feel huge and like I’m going to choke. Swallowing this capsule is easy than most vitamins or tablets and it doesn’t make me feel nauseous at all. Highly recommend!

    I wanted the best product out there and my research led me to this product. I loved that it was an Aussie brand and that it was the latest science.
    I have issues with reflux/burping, so I did notice I do get fishy burps sometimes. I just experiment with taking it at different stages of my meal and it’s bearable. it’s definitely worth it.
    The packaging is exquisite, the unwrapping and overall product presentation (bottle) are fine quality and it feels like a very premium product.
    I feel good knowing I am taking the steps to give our future baby the best start.
    Highly recommend this company and product.

  54. Stephanie

    Firstly, the bottle is amazing! The little capsules look very “sciencey”. but the main reason I chose this product is because I know the ingredients will be absorbed.
    When I read about the 2-layer capsule and the better folic acid, it made total sense to try it. So glad I did! Feeling great.
    Easy to swallow plus peace of mind that I’m absorbing the nutrients that my baby needs.

  55. Loredana

    Being a first time mum, I wanted to ensure that I did plenty of research before using a pregnancy multivitamin and was relieved when I was finally recommended Perdays.
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have been using both the probiotic and key essentials for a number of months. I have been extremely happy with both of the Perdays products. The capsules are easy to swallow and I have had no issues taking the probiotic in the morning without food. From an ingredients perspective, it had everything I was looking for and more. I will continue to use both of these products until I give birth and highly recommend these based on my experience so far.

  56. Zoe

    I have been using this product for just under a month after seeing the nutrition course on mums central. The capsules are so easy to swallow and im feeling great. Will definitely order again.
