Pulling Down the Moon Prenatal Vitamin PacketOur Prenatal Vitamin Packet is one of the most comprehensive prenatal vitamins available. Here are some of the standout features that make this packet THE choice for pregnancy:
- 1000 mcg folic acid.*
- Extra B-vitamins. Our Prenatal Vitamin Packet has100% or more of your daily requirement for all the B-vitamins, which are vital for the process of ovulation. Many women who are trying to conceive have been taking oral contraceptives that can deplete B vitamins. B vitamins can also be depleted by stress, which can be a side-effect of fertility treatment.*
- Quality-assured, purity-tested omega-3 fatty acids. While most prenatal vitamins emphasize DHA (if they have any omega-3 fatty acids at all), this packet includes EPA along with DHA. While DHA is vital for baby’s brain and vision development, EPA is the essential fatty acid that promotes healthy cell membranes and curbs inflammation in the body. This anti-inflammatory action may be important for fertility, especially important for patients with PCOS or endometriosis.*
- 30 mg of gentle iron, in the form of the more easily digested iron glycinate, as opposed to cheaper forms of iron, which may cause constipation and other GI side-effects.*
- 200 mg of choline, a nutrient that supports fetal brain development. Choline may also play a role in healthy genetic expression in the early embryonic environment. *
- High-quality calcium (in the form of calcium citrate, which creates less gas and bloating than calcium carbonate) and magnesium.*
- Optimal levels of antioxidant vitamins and safe levels of pre-formed Vitamin A.*
- No fillers, trans fats, stabilizers or other additives. *
