What Is A Good Over The Counter Prenatal Vitamin
Hi i was wondering what's a good over-the-counter prenatal vitamin for pre pregnancy and is there anything i can do to increase my fertility ?
Folic acid: Any prenatal vitamin that you like will be fine. All will contain Folic acid which helps prevent certain birth defects. They do not improve fertility though. If you are having trouble getting pregnant see an Obgyn. General healthiness improves fertility -- good diet, exercise, weight loss if needed; avoiding tobacco, drugs and alcohol.
See details: Try one that does not contain iron.
Does it really matter if you take a prescription prenatal vitamin instead of an over-the-counter one?
Absolutely not.: You can try either option - they are equivalent.
I take reg prenatal vitamins but I am vitamin d2 def(13.2) is it safe to take a prenatal vitamin and a over-the-counter vitamin d supplement?
Vitamin d : Yes - it is safe to take a prenatal vitamin and an over the counter vitamin d supplement. You want to make sure, though, that the supplement has a USP stamp on it. That stands for United States pharmacopoiea and ensures that the amount of vitamin d that is supposed to be in a tablet is really in it.
Ideally with L5-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.
Is SE Natal 19 a good prenatal vitamin? I requested it be changed to vitafol-one but my request was ignored...
Healthtap doctors: are asked not to endorse specific brands or product lines.
Prenatal & Vit D &..: No prenatal alone will be adequate. I do not know of any prenatals with more than 1000 iu of d and if you are low in d i advise at lease 5000 iu a day, which you can take with your prenatal. None have much potassium- get that from more fruits & veggies. Also advise a dha supplement. Many good prenatals but i advise basic prenatal by thorne research as it has the optimal form of folate (folic acid) (l-5-mthf).
Good prenatal vitamin that is gluten and diary free and at the same time small in size?I am 10 weeks pregnant & having a hard time finding a good one.
Rainbow Light or...: Rainbow Light Prenatal Petite looks like a good choice: https://labdoor.com/review/rainbow-light-prenatal-petite-mini though Thorne's Basic Prenatal is even better as it has a better form of folate; it has standard sized capsules which you could open up and put in juice if the capsules are too big for you; see https://labdoor.com/review/thorne-research-basic-prenatal-multivitamin
Ok to crush new chapter prenatal vitamin in my orange juice? I tense and can't swallow large pills. Gummies are too chewy. Told centrum chews not good
Ask pharmacist: Your local pharmacist can look at each specific brand and verify that they can be crushed.
Is it bad to chew a multivitamin that's not labeled as chewable? Will it harm me? I chewed a prenatal vitamin (not pregnant- heard good for skin/hair)
