Can I Give Prenatal Vitamins To My Children
Probably no benefit: Vitamin supplements are unnecessary for the vast majority of people.
During my pregnancy I took prenatal vitamins and notice my hair grew longer and fuller. Will prenatal vitamins give me same results not pregnant?
Probably: The vast majority of people get inadequate levels of vitamins and minerals from their diets, as the food we eat often is deficient in them. Thus, I recommend that everyone take a quality multivitamin to insure we get the vitamins and minerals we need. While this is very important when pregnant, those who are not pregnant also need and benefit from vitamins. See http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8
My doctor prescribed me iron supplements twice a day & prenatal vitamins once a day. Can I take all 3 of them together or I should give sum hours gap?
Breastfeeding. Yesterday missed to give liquid vitamin D to my 3months old baby. Is it ok? I am taking prenatal vitamins that also contain vitamin D
Can prenatal vitamins give you the some of the same symptoms has pregnancy? Like breast tenderness fatigue gas and a little abdominal pain?
Unlikely: I've never heard of any vitamins causing breast tenderness. Vitamins are very unlikely to cause fatigue, gas or abdominal pain unless you're allergic to one or more of the ingredients- for example, some vitamins contain soy or gluten which are common allergens. If you're sure you aren't pregnant then try stopping them to see if you feel better, then restart. If it causes problems try another type.See 2 more doctor answers
Ideally with 5-MTHF: Most prenatals are fairly similar but there's a subtle yet important difference. About 30% of people can't convert Folic Acid to its active form, l-5-mthf, so to be on the safe side it's best to take one with that form like prenatal nutrients (pure encapsulations), basic prenatal (thorne) or prenatal pro (designs for health). These also have biotin, which is important, & natural e, not synthetic.
Being Pregnant: Yes. Of course. I would believe that the prenatal book you bought or got at the beginning of your pregnancy will advise you to take prenatal vitamins and most obs that I know also recommend this for their patients.
Many reasons.: The most important ingredient in prenatal vitamin formulations is folic acid, a b-complex agent that has been shown to prevent birth defects (mainlyopen neural tube defects, heart anomalies and preterm birth) and calcium.Vitamin d to assure proper fetal bone growth and avoid maternal bone loss. All reproductive-age women should be taking at least 1 mg folate daily even if they don't plan pregnancy.See 1 more doctor answer
One your body likes: There are many different prenatal vitamins. They have certain things in common but several differences. I would avoid one with artificial colors or flavors. Ginger is often added to prenatals because of its ability to treat nausea. It is safe. Some contain a lot of calcium which is constipating. It is best to get calcium from healthy unprocessed food together with other mineralsSee 1 more doctor answer
Before pregnancy!: If you are planning on getting pregnant then it is wise to start prenatal vitamins before you are pregnant to assure you are getting adequate Folic Acid to prevent a birth defect called neural tube defect. Most people don't know they are pregnant until the fetus is 2-3 weeks old. It is crucial to have adequate Folic Acid in those initial days of development, so don't wait until you know for sure!See 3 more doctor answers
