Prenatal is a comprehensive formula containing 24 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients essential for proper fetal development and maternal health before and during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
Pregnancy is the most critical period of a woman’s life from a nutritional perspective; even the most careful dietary regimen can fall short of the needs of both mother and child. Fruits and vegetables from supermarkets, grown in mineral-depleted soil, can fail to meet critical embryonic needs. Even a mother with excellent nutritional habits may be a candidate for supplementation, as the fetus becomes a priority for nutritional consumption.
Prenatal contains the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that support development of the skeletal system, organ formation, and central nervous system creation. All eight members of the B-vitamin complex are provided in Prenatal; these water-soluble vitamins are not stored by the body and are in constant demand for the formation of skin, bones, muscle, organs, and the nervous system. Vitamins C, D3, E, and K are also formulated in safe therapeutic levels to meet the demands of pregnancy.
An additional 12 minerals are included in Prenatal to meet the demands of pregnancy: calcium, copper, manganese, molybdenum, boron, and potassium are all in highly bioavailable citrate form; iron, magnesium, zinc, and chromium are all chelated for bioavailability; selenium is found in ascorbate form; and potassium iodide is the salt form of this critical trace element for thyroid development.
