Vitamins are an essential part of any healthy life—but they’re even more important when you’re trying for a baby.
It’s a common misconception that you only need to take vitamins once you’re pregnant. However, we strongly recommend all our patients begin a vitamin regimen before, during, and after pregnancy.
Before you conceive, vitamins are necessary to help prepare your body by supplying it with the vital nutrients it needs to fulfill the nutritional and physical demands of pregnancy.
While you’re pregnant, these vitamins will continue to help support your body and your developing baby with all the nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy.
And after pregnancy, it’s important for a baby’s healthy growth to continue supplying your body with these nutrients that will be transferred to your baby through your breast milk.
Our top choice for prenatal vitamins
The Prenatal Complete with DHA by Ortho Molecular is our top choice for getting women’s bodies in good health prior to having a baby, during pregnancy, and post-birth while breastfeeding.
We recommend the Prenatal Complete because it contains the main nutrients that are extremely important for a healthy baby: iron, magnesium, DHA, active folate, and calcium.
This specific formula also contains DHA, which is an omega-3 fatty acid. This essential nutrient is extremely important throughout all stages of pregnancy, but especially while you’re pregnant so it can help support the healthy development of the fetal brain, retina, and cognitive and motor functions.
We also like the Prenatal Complete with DHA because it’s formulated to be free of gluten, soy, yeast, milk, eggs, nuts, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives and additives, making it safe for anyone with food allergies.
Many over-the-counter prenatals can contain a lot of dyes, chemicals, and toxins that may be unsafe for you and your baby. They can also contain folic acid, which is not what you want in a prenatal vitamin. Many people can’t convert folic acid into an absorbable nutrient in their body.
Folate, however, is very important to a baby’s development. It prevents birth defects, promotes healthy spine and nervous system development, and is much easier for your body to absorb. Luckily, Ortho Molecular’s Prenatal Complete is made with folate vs. folic acid.
These very important details in a prenatal vitamin are why we always recommend vitamins and supplements from health industry innovators like Ortho Molecular.
