Basic Prenatal by Thorne was designed to be a complete vitamin and mineral supplement for pregnant and lactating women. This multi-vitamin and mineral supplement contains the purest and highest quality ingredients available on the market in their most well-absorbed and highly bioavailable forms.

One of the most crucial vitamins for a healthy pregnancy is folate. Insufficient intake of folic acid during pregnancy may negatively affect fetal development. Fortunately‚ each vegetarian capsule of Basic Prenatal provides the active forms of folate (5-MTHF) and vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamine) in a readily-absorbable dose. Iron is also important for pregnant women‚ but it can sometimes cause constipation; therefore‚ this supplement contains iron in the form of iron bisglycinate‚ which is easier on the stomach while delivering a woman's pregnancy-specific needs.

Pregnancy and Nutrition

During pregnancy‚ a woman needs more calories and nutrients to support both herself and a growing baby. Even after pregnancy‚ her nutritional and caloric requirements remain elevated if she breastfeeds. However‚ some women have trouble getting the appropriate amount of calories and nutrition from food‚ especially during their first trimester of pregnancy when many suffer from morning sickness. The good news is that nutrients like vitamin B6‚ vitamin C‚ and vitamin K may help alleviate those uncomfortable symptoms.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommend that all women of childbearing age supplement with folic acid. This is because many pregnancies are not discovered until well into the first trimester‚ and this time is crucial for neural development of the fetus. Even though folate is essential‚ it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Basic Prenatal provides a safe dosage of 1 mg to ensure proper supplementation.

The Thorne Difference

As you may expect from Thorne‚ you will not find any of the additives or coatings that you might find in mainstream prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements. Basic Prenatal is formulated with only the purest and most bioavailable nutrients.

Many women have trouble digesting the high-potency prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements that are often needed during pregnancy‚ especially during the nausea that often occurs in the first trimester. It is for this reason that Thorne Research does not include high volumes of the vitamins and minerals that are more likely to be harsh on the stomach. Basic Prenatal provides the most bioavailable forms of vitamins B6‚ B2‚ B12‚ and L-5 MTHF (active folate) —this means that you’ll get more benefit out of a smaller dose than you would with many other multivitamin and mineral supplements.

Thorne strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

INTERACTIONS

As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin)‚ the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.

5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy‚ as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however‚ this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS

Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose‚ call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

Vitamin C can cause diarrhea in some individuals in large doses‚ which can vary from person to person and resolves when the amount is reduced.

      Quality Brand

      from Kansas City MO on 8/18/2021
      My girlfriend takes these as a daily multi vitamin - you do not have to be pregnant to take these. They are a trustworthy brand, and are better than other brands that are too low dosed or do not disclose all of the ingredients.
