Feeling queasy? Focus on the essentials now—Folic Acid, Methylated Folate (5-MTHF), B6, B12, DHA, Iron, Vitamin C, Choline—and save the rest for when your stomach settles. Bonus: a higher dose of B6 does double-duty by supporting fetal development while also preventing nausea for you (it’s actually a main ingredient in morning sickness meds). These top-quality ingredients are loaded up in just-right doses to support you and your babe.
Gentle Essentials (x1)
Stick to the essentials if early-pregnancy has you feeling queasy (you can get the rest later when your stomach is more settled). This small capsule delivers big benefits. A hybrid of Folic Acid and Methylated Folate (5-MTHF, the active form) plus Vitamin B12 support neural tube development while Iron and its absorption-boosting bud Vitamin C build up red blood cells to deliver oxygen to your growing babe. We’ve included B6 to help with the nausea, too.
Algae Oil DHA (Omega-3) (x1)
Every cell in your body needs this Omega-3 Fatty Acid, but it’s not something you produce naturally and many diets fall short. During pregnancy, you need even more DHA because it gets used up fast for fetal brain, nervous system and eye development. Our DHA comes from algae oil so there’s no fishy aftertaste.
This easy-to-absorb form of Iron helps your blood transport oxygen, and it’s gentle on the stomach, too. When growing a babe, your volume of blood increases, and your baby uses your red blood cells to grow and develop. So, you need more Iron and vitamins to make those extra red blood cells. You can start building a stockpile of them even before you conceive. Taken before and during pregnancy, Iron supplements are key to helping prevent anemia. They also lower your odds of needing a blood transfusion at delivery, as well as the chance of having a very small baby. You’ll be helping your baby’s Iron levels too, as little ones are more likely to develop anemia in their first year if their birthing parent had iron-deficiency anemia.
