Here are the key nutrients to pay attention to when you’re considering getting pregnant
During pregnancy, the best way to ensure your baby’s physical and cognitive development is to take a prenatal vitamin supplement packed with the right nutrition. However, did you know that it’s beneficial to start taking prenatals before you are even pregnant?
Here’s what your body needs now:
Folic AcidFolic acid is a vital nutrient your baby needs right from the start. In the first month of pregnancy, your baby’s brain and spinal cord start developing, and folic acid may help to prevent possible birth defects.
L methylfolateVitafol® uses Metafolin®, a special form of folic acid which is easily absorbed by the body. This helps protect your baby’s brain and spinal cord as they begin developing.
IronIron supplements in pregnancy are needed to help carry oxygen to your body tissues, including the placenta. Our formulation is gentle on your stomach so you can avoid any gastric issues.
IodineYou need about 50% more iodine in pregnancy than you do regularly. Vitafol® contains this useful nutrient to support the growth and development of your baby’s brain.
Vitamin DTaking vitamin D in pregnancy helps with the development of strong bones for both you and your baby. Taking supplemental Vitamin D can also carry over to your breastmilk for your infant.
DHATo support your baby’s cognitive development and brain health, taking DHA in pregnancy is important. We use algal-based DHA instead of fish oil in some of our formulations so you can avoid the fishy taste.
