Pre-conception, pregnancy, and nursing are critical times to optimize a mother's health and nutrition, which is important for both for mom and baby. Overall nutritional and caloric needs greatly increase during this time. However, it is often difficult for a woman to fulfill her daily nutrient needs through diet alone.
Thornes Basic Prenatal is specifically formulated with the special needs of conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding in mind.* Our formula contains well-absorbed, tissue-ready vitamins and minerals that are gentle on the stomach and non-constipating.*
Benefits of Thornes Basic Prenatal at each stage:
Daily multi-vitamin/mineral support for a woman of childbearing age.
Provides beneficial nutrients that are important from the moment of conception.
Folate facilitates healthy brain and spinal cord development.* Basic Prenatal includes the bioactive form of folate 5-MTHF.
Vitamins C, B6, and K have been shown to benefit morning sickness.*
Contains the well-absorbed and well-researched iron bisglycinate to meet a pregnant womans increased need for iron.
Provides the extra nutrients needed for continued healthy fetal development and to prepare mom and baby for birth.*
After Pregnancy through Nursing
Nutritional support for increased demand for calcium and vitamin D in the diet.
PREGNANCY If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner 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.
