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.

ALLERGY WARNING
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.

Iodine may occasionally cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.

PREGNANCY WARNING
If pregnant‚ consult your health professional before using this product.

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

Folinic acid and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy‚ as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however‚ these folate sources have 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.

TAMPER EVIDENT
Use only if bottle is sealed. Store tightly sealed in a cool‚ dry place.

      I was concerned that these would bother my stomach as many vitamins do and some reviews said this was an issue, but I've had no problem taking them. Pricing on the site is competitive.

      Easy to take with minimal to no side effects. I notice some "fishy" burps within the first hour or two of taking the pills but that's it. I take two in the morning with food and if I remember I take one with lunch. Since I'm taking this in preparation for pregnancy I'm not as concerned about getting the full dose every day.

      I ordered a number of Thorne Basic Prenatal Vitamins and the price was very, very competitive and the shipping was free and expeditious!!! I would highly recommend them!!

      Pros

      Prices and quick delivery! I believe shipping was free if total cost went over a certain amount. Would have to look up to remember...sorry, just don't have the time right now.

      Cons

      NOTHING

      I never knew I was low in iron until a naturopathic doctor recommended this prenatal to me. It sure has helped me over the years especially when I am expecting.

      Pros

      I like that it truly helps boost my iron levels to give me the energy I need to keep up with my children.

      Cons

      The cost seems to keep rising and the dose is too many capsules for me.

      from Raleigh, NC on 12/17/2019
      Happy it has Folate (natural & processed through the gut) instead of Folic Acid (synthetic & processed through the liver). I've seen many good articles just come out this year, 2019, that state that Folate is much better and why. Very happy to have found this product. Wish it came in dark brown glass bottle--that seems to say a great deal about the true quality of a product; if the company packages in glass instead of the BPA of plastic.

      Pros

      It contains natural Folate rather than synthetic Folic Acid.

      Cons

      Comes in a plastic bottle instead of glass.

      from Hickory, NC on 11/29/2019
      Before buying these I was taking a different brand of vitamins that were supposedly pure and clean but yet I was getting daily headaches. My naturopathic doctor recommended this brand because she said it doesn't include other unnecessary "stuff" that other brands use and because the dose was split in 3 capsules it would be easier for my body to process. I got pregnant while taking them and plan on continuing to take them. I love that I can take 2 at breakfast and 1 at lunch and I've never had any side effects. Highly recommend!

      Pros

      3 pills a day lets me space them out throughout the day instead of taking one hard dose.

      Cons

      Nothing really.

      I took these vitamins all through pregnancy. I am now taking it while breastfeeding. It has never given me a stomach ache, while other brands have. This brand was recommended by my doctor and midwife. My only compliant is if I take it too late I have trouble sleeping, so I only take two in the morning and one in the afternoon if I remember.

      Pros

      Gentle on stomach

      Cons

      Cannot sleep if I take it too late during the day
