With hundreds of prenatal supplements on the market, Vitamin Packs wanted to provide something different that all moms could stand behind. Swooping in to save the day, our new Pre-Post Natal Multi is made by moms, for moms! Specially designed in Canada by a naturopathic doctor and lactation specialist, this multivitamin was created to supply developing babies and mothers with everything they need. During pregnancy, the body makes many sacrifices and gives every last thing it has to create that tiny little human inside of you! Our new Pre-Post Natal Multi was developed by a loving team that uses pure ingredients, avoids commonly found synthetic ingredients, and genetically modified organisms. Here is what makes our formula so special.
An upset stomach is often associated with pregnancy and is something no mom looks forward to. During this time, it is common to experience bowel changes. That is why our Pre-Post Natal Multi uses an absorbable form of iron called iron bisglycinate to avoid constipation caused by iron supplementation. In addition, our formula includes organic ginger to ease digestive upset associated with every stage of pregnancy.
Vitamin K2 and Activated Folate
Vitamin K2 is important for skeletal development and is even showing promising results in studies for bone aliments such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.1 Vitamin K2 plays a large role in bone mineralization and also promotes cell death of osteoclasts, which are cells that eat bone.2 In addition, Pre-Post Natal Multi uses the activated form of folate due to a growing number of women experiencing methylation pathway mutations. Folate is important for neural development and pregnant mothers require higher levels than the average woman. With mother and child in mind, this form of folate ensures the highest chance of absorption to help prevent birth defects that effect the brain and spinal cord.
Our Pre-Post Natal Multi meets all nutrient recommendations for proper baby growth and maternal demands. Key ingredients vital to baby development and changing needs of the mother are responsible for preventing birth defects, building new blood, building baby bones, and preventing bone loss of the mother. We include the perfect balance of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, and water-soluble vitamins C and B. Our formula also includes iodine, magnesium, zinc, and numerous other minerals. Growing a baby is hard, that’s why Pre-Post Natal Multi is the perfect way to fill nutrient gaps, supporting you all the way through pregnancy, recovery, and nursing. Go get ‘em mama!
