Choosing the Best Prenatal Vitamin

When you begin to plan for pregnancy a lot of questions arise, one being “What is the best prenatal multivitamin for me and my baby?” The quest for the right product is motivated by the search for optimum support and nourishment for the health and wellness of your baby, and we feel the importance of just that. Our prenatal multivitamin is sourced with organic ingredients to make the choice as simple as can be. A potent, food-based, digestion-enhanced capsule you can take on an empty stomach and ease the worry about the never-ending list of pregnancy preparing!

Our ultra-pure prenatal vitamin comes formulated with whole food ingredients, giving mom the nutrients needed to prepare the body for your baby. Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics and antioxidants are carefully blended to promote healthy development and meet all of the body’s demands for this incredible transformation.

Folic Acid:

By far one of the most important nutrients needed by the body before and during pregnancy, folic acid is as important to us as it is to you. Folic acid helps the body make red blood cells that carry oxygen from your lungs to all parts of the body. They are the carriers of nutrients and play a vital role in birth development. Taking folic acid before and during pregnancy can help prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord. Women able to get pregnant can take 400-800 mcg of folic acid everyday, even if they are not planning to get pregnant. Additionally, we’ve added Vitamin B12 to pair alongside folic acid as research has suggested taking the two synergistically increases the health benefits of each nutrient and the roles they play in the body.

Probiotics:

Probiotics are critical, especially during pregnancy. During the birth process, babies obtain their beneficial gut bacteria from what they receive from mom when passing through the birth canal and from nursing in the months afterwards. Good gut health also has a tremendous impact on lifelong health, and this is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. Probiotics also help mom avoid illness and constipation (yay!) during pregnancy. As mentioned above, since baby’s gut bacteria continues to culture during nursing time, it is good for mom to continue to take probiotics during this time as well.

Vitamin D3:

There is a lot of emerging research that Vitamin D can help reduce the risk of many pregnancybabyphoto-1464967493814-8aaf8fe4d622 related complications including gestational diabetes. It is important for baby’s bone and hormone development and helps support mom’s immune system during pregnancy. We believe in preventative nutrition here at Nested Naturals and adding Vitamin D3 to our prenatal-multi shows exactly that. By providing mom and baby with the tools they need to prevent future illness and disease, Vitamin D3 sets the body up for success and strives to keep optimal levels of nutrients for a strong, healthy life.

It’s hard to get all the nutrients you and your baby need, even if you eat a wide variety of food. Most women can benefit from taking a prenatal vitamin and mineral supplement. Think of it as an insurance policy to make sure you’re getting the right amount of those crucial nutrients before and during pregnancy.

On top of it all, taking a prenatal multivitamin is even more important for women with dietary restrictions, health issues, or pregnancy complications. By filling the gaps that we may or may not see, you can take comfort knowing that ourĀ organic, all-natural product has your back.
