A quick refresher on the essential nutrients in prenatal vitamins
You understand the importance of prenatal vitamins – and you probably read all about what goes into them the last time. In case you need to jog your memory, here are the essential nutrients you and your baby need right now.
Folic AcidThe most important nutrient you need while pregnant, folic acid prevents against possible birth defects in the brain and spinal cord
L methylfolateVitafol® uses Metafolin®, a special form of folic acid. Sometimes folic acid in prenatals can be difficult to absorb in the body, so our formulation ensures your body gets what you need.
IronTaking an iron supplement while pregnant is vital because iron is what helps carry oxygen to your body tissues. During pregnancy, you need iron to carry oxygen to your placenta.
IodineYou need additional a prenatal vitamin with iodine because this nutrient helps support the growth and development of your baby’s brain.
Vitamin DVitamin D in pregnancy builds strong bones for you and your baby. After pregnancy, vitamin D is passed into your breastmilk to nourish your little one.
DHADHA in pregnancy is used to support your baby’s cognitive growth and development. Many women don’t like the taste or smell of fishy DHA, so we use an algal-based one.
