Can I take prenatal vitamin with milk?

Can I take prenatal vitamin with milk?

Probably ok: But some labels suggest avoiding dairy intake two hours before or after taking the vitamin. This could be due to an increased likelihood of GI intolerance (more gas, bloating, discomfort) or the presence of calcium in the milk impairing iron absorption slightly. I would take my prenatal vitamin with juice or water. Hope your pregnancy goes well:) ...Read more

Can i take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Can i take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Yes unless pregnant: It is safe to take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin. Fenugreek has many benefits. Due to estrogen-like properties it can enhance lactation, reduce menstrual cramps and reduce menopausal symptoms but it is advised to not use fenugreek while pregnant as it might increase risk of miscarriage.

I am supposed to take iron pills. Can i just take a vitamin, eat liver and cook with iron skillets?

I am supposed to take iron pills. Can i just take a vitamin, eat liver and cook with iron skillets?

Yes, but also...: Iron pills are often poorly absorbed and cause side effects, so obtaining iron from your diet is a good strategy. Chicken & beef liver are good choices but i strongly advise organically-raised animals. Other good sources of iron include beans, lentils, tofu, spinach, raisins, clams, oysters, beef & chicken.

Can I take a hair vitamin while I'm still on prenatal vitamins and also breast-feeding.

Should be okay: .. as long as it is a naturally occurring vitamin that would normally exist in the body. If it is artificial, even without knowledge of the exact substance, I would recommend against putting in your body while you are breast-feeding your child. Just know that whatever you are trying to do to help yourself with these vitamins may very well end up working on the infant as well. ...Read more
