As a mom-to-be, you have special nutrient needs, which is why we offer a prenatal that utilizes highly bioavailable ingredients to support you from maternity through nursing.
We use the less common form of vitamin K, which has far more benefits compared to what's in other brands. Vitamin K2 is especially important for your baby's skeletal growth
We use organic ginger and the more absorbable form of vitamin B6 to ease upset stomachs and nausea.
New research shows that many women have trouble absorbing folate, so we use an active form of folate, 5-MTHF, for better bioavailability.
Our supplement is manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, is non-GMO, and is free of gluten, yeast, wheat, artificial colors, and artificial flavors.
Vitamin D can help reduce inflammation, assist in bone formation and reduce the risk of some diseases like stroke, cardiovascular disease, dementia, metabolic diseases and respiratory problems.
Emerging research is demonstrating the importance of vitamin D. Preeclampsia has been associated with vitamin D deficiency in women as well.
You can get your vitamin D by eating egg yolks, butter, mushrooms, and cod liver oil. Although not as much, you can still get vitamin D through dark, leafy green vegetables.
About 80% of the population is deficient in vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 (as opposed to K1) is more beneficial in bone formation, growth, and reduction of calcium deposits. It is also a more bioavailable from of vitamin K.
Food sources of vitamin K1 are broccoli, lettuce, spinach, green tea, and dark leafy vegetables. You can obtain vitamin K2 through natto, hard cheese, butter, and chicken breast.
Vitamin B6 is essential for red blood cell and brain development. It also helps mothers with supporting neurotransmitter production for mood and nausea. Vitamin B6 can also help to regulate sleep by helping the body make melatonin.
Vitamin B6 can be obtained by eating foods like bananas, potatoes, whole wheat, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower.
Folic acid reduces the risk of spina bifida and helps support the growth of your baby. Folic acid is important for tissue growth, cell development, and healthy brain development.
You can obtain folic acid by eating kale, spinach, legumes, oranges, and cabbages.
Over recent decades iron-deficient anemia has remained high in pregnant women. We offer 30 mg of iron, which is close to double the recommended Daily Value. Iron is necessary for your immune system, and the formation of red blood cells so that our bodies can utilize oxygen.
You can obtain non-heme iron by eating tofu, sunflower seeds, collard greens, pumpkin seeds, dates, beans and cashews. Heme iron can be obtained by eating all forms of animal protein and fish.
Low levels of zinc have been linked to low birthweight and spina bifida. Zinc levels can be depleted by about 30% during pregnancy. Zinc may be important for immune function, cognition and treating eczema. Because iron can deplete zinc, we offer 20 mg which is above the Daily Value to ensure you have an adequate supply.
Oysters, red meats, shellfish, and fish are some foods found with zinc.
Ginger is known to help with upset stomach and morning sickness. Every mom can benefit from this herb while her body goes through changes during pregnancy.
Copper helps create red blood cells. This is important because blood supply increases during pregnancy. Also, because copper is often depleted in the presence of zinc, we offer the Daily Value of copper in our prenatal Multi.
You can get copper by eating foods such as oysters and legumes.
Thiamin plays a major role in the development of your baby's brain! It is important for nerve protection, helps to ensure normal heart beat and promotes digestion through the formation of hydrocholric acid.
Thiamin can be found in foods like sunflower seeds, soybeans, nuts, and brown rice.
Riboflavin helps baby's growth, vision, skin, bones, muscle and nerve development. Riboflavin is also essential for helping to reduce the incidence of preeclampsia.
You can get riboflavin by eating organ meats such as liver and heart, along with other foods like almonds, mushrooms, and soybeans.
Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, can help with leg cramps that often occur during pregnancy and also helps regulate hormones. Vitamin B5 may reduce fatigue, stress and may support clear skin.
Pantothenic is the Greek word for "everywhere" because pantothenic acid can be found everywhere in nature. Pantothenic acid can be obtained by eating meats, egg yolk, legumes, whole grains, potatoes, mushrooms and avocados.
Prenatal supplements are specially formulated to meet the needs of a growing baby as well as the changing needs of a mother. Prenatal vitamins place an emphasis on folic acid, calcium, and iron.
You should start taking your prenatal as soon as you can! If you are trying to conceive but have not yet become pregnant, you should still take a prenatal to optimize your personal health by filling nutrient gaps.
Whatever time you are confident you can remember to take it! Absorption doesn't optimize at any specific time of the day, so you are in control of your prenatal routine.
You should take your prenatal as soon as you find out that you are pregnant (or as you try to conceive) all the way through your pregnancy. You can even continue taking your prenatal as you breastfeed.
Our prenatal multi not only helps with the growing needs of pregnancy but can support you at every step of the way. Prenatal supplements are specially formulated to meet the needs of a growing baby as well as the changing needs of a mother before and after baby arrives. Prenatal vitamins place an emphasis on folic acid, calcium, and iron.
There are no allergens. The prenatal is Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Soy-Free, and Dairy-Free.
When it comes to the care for yourself and your baby quality is of top importance. Our prenatal multi was developed by doctors who are also mothers. It combines modern science and traditional wisdom. We chose the safest, most effective ingredients avaliable. It has the most bioavailable versions of the nutrients, so they can be well-absorbed. This makes it optimal for those trying, pregnant, and even for lactation.
Our prenatal uses a few key ingredients that are different from most other prenatal out there. First there is K2, the lesser known and used form of Vitamin K. It is essential for building the skeletal system. It has organic ginger, which is a digestive tonic that helps with nausea and constipation. It also contains methylated folate, which is a form of folate that is easier for the body to utilize. Lastly, it has iron, which is essential for mothers to build blood. The form used in our prenatal multi, ferrous bisglycinate, is easier on the digestive system.
Even when you eat a healthy, whole foods diet, it can be difficult to obtain all the essential nutrients on a day-to-day basis. As a mother or mother-to-be, you have extra nutrient needs and want to make sure you are covered. That is where a multivitamin, or in this case our prenatal multi, can be a powerful addition to your daily routine.
The prenatal formula is pure, natural and sourced with great care. With mothers and mother nature in mind, our prenatal multi contains only what is needed for mom and baby. We use only the best of the best, with limited amounts of additives.
We ask for your medication at the end of the questionnaire to make sure that there are no interactions with any ingredients in the supplements we recommend to you. If you cannot find a medication you take or have concerns, please feel free to call and speak with one of our on-staff nutritionists.
