DrFormulas Prenatal Vitamins with DHA, Folate/Folic Acid/Methyfolate and Iron for Pregnant and Breasfeeding Women, Multivitamin Supplement Pills
About the product
DrFormulas Multi Prenatal Vitamins with DHA contain Doctor Formulated vitamins and minerals for you and your baby before & after pregnancy.
OMEGA DHA: Prenatal vitamins don't contain any essential fatty acids, such as the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which are important for the development of your baby's brain, nerve, and eye tissue.
FOLIC ACID & NEURAL DEVELOPMENT: Getting enough of this B vitamin in the month before you conceive and very early in your pregnancy can reduce your baby's risk of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida and anencephaly, by up to 70 percent. Folic acid may also reduce the risk of other defects, such as cleft lip, cleft palate, and certain heart defects. Taking folic acid may even lower your risk of preeclampsia.
IRON: Most moms-to-be don't get enough of this mineral from their diet to meet their body's increased need during pregnancy, and this can lead to iron-deficiency anemia. Preventing iron-deficiency anemia can cut your risk of preterm delivery, low birth weight, and infant mortality.
VITAMIN D & CALCIUM: Your prenatal vitamin may contain calcium, but there's a chance it won't be enough. You need calcium to help your baby grow strong bones and teeth as well as healthy nerves and muscles (including the heart).
I love this prenatal. First, I want to specify that I am not currently pregnant. It was recommended to me by a neurologist to take prenatal vitamins to help support the possibility of having a child. Within a week my hair, skin, and nails were flourishing. I like that the folate in it is already broken down for optimal absorption. I have searched for this specific product and have been hard pressed to find anything like it. I hope it becomes available again soon.
