Prenatal Multi-Vitamin Provides Ideal Nutrients for Mom and Growing Baby
If you are pregnant or attempting to become pregnant, proper nutrition is one of the most important aspects of having a healthy pregnancy and delivering a healthy baby. Unfortunately, most women do not meet all of their nutritional needs from diet alone. Taking prenatal vitamins helps to fill nutrition gaps, and therefore ensures that mother and baby receive essential vitamins and minerals for optimal health.
Our Prenatal Multi-Vitamins provide key nutrients required during pregnancy. As with all of our products, our Prenatal Multi-Vitamins are manufactured under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to high quality standards.
Among all nutrients, three key compounds are especially important and are needed in higher doses during pregnancy: folic acid, iron and calcium.
Folic acid helps prevent neural tube birth defects in babies, which affect the brain and spinal cord. Since neural tube defects develop within the first four weeks after conception, often before expectant moms even know of their pregnancy, it is crucial for all potential mothers to meet their folic acid needs.
Calcium helps in preventing expectant moms from losing their own bone density as growing babies use calcium for bone development. Calcium is especially important during the third trimester, when baby’s bones grow the most rapidly.
Iron helps red blood cells to carry oxygen in blood for both the mother and baby. Iron also supports the baby’s growth, development, and prevents anemia, a condition in which blood has a lower than normal number of red blood cells.
It is recommended to take prenatal multi-vitamins before conception, throughout pregnancy, and even during breastfeeding. Prenatal multi-vitamins have been found to cause the side effect of mild nausea in some women. To avoid this, it is suggested to take prenatal vitamins with food or at bedtime. Although prenatal multi-vitamins are safe and recommended for most women, as with incorporating any health supplement, it is best to consult a doctor prior to using.
Prenatal multi-vitamins help ensure that that both you and your baby receive important nutrients, especially if your diet falls short on providing your body with key ingredients. Our Prenatal Multi-Vitamins offer a safe and simple way to enjoy a healthy, successful pregnancy.
