It is well known that prenatal vitamins are important to take before, during, and after pregnancy. However, the quality of most prenatal vitamins on the market is greatly lacking. You want to make sure that the prenatal vitamin you're taking is truly supporting your health and the healthy development of your baby.
Wellness Resources® Daily Prenatal Multi Vitamin™ sets a new standard for quality. It is the first prenatal vitamin designed specifically to maximize energy production. It contains the highest quality coenzyme B vitamins and special protein / mineral complexes. These high quality forms of nutrients facilitate optimal GI tract absorption and enhanced cellular uptake, ensuring that both you and your baby get the vital nutrients you need.*
Highest Quality Prenatal Vitamin
Pregnancy is no time to cut quality corners with nutrition. When you take the Wellness Resources Daily Prenatal Multi Vitamin™ you can rest assured that you and your baby are getting the very best.
Most prenatal vitamins on the market contain low quality forms of vitamins and minerals that simply cannot deliver as hyped. An easy way to detect the quality of a prenatal multivitamin is to look at the form of B12 listed on the supplement facts panel. The low quality form of B12 is called cyanocobalamin. This form of B12 can actually produce cyanide as it is metabolized. In contrast, the high quality coenzyme forms of B12 that are in Daily Prental Multi Vitamin™ are called methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Taking these high quality b vitamins makes a huge difference in energy that you get from your prenatal vitamin.*
Coenzyme B Vitamins for Energy and Nerve Health
B vitamins during pregnancy are essential for both you and your baby. For you, coenzyme b vitamins improve energy and mood and offset stress. For your baby, B vitamins are vital for optimal development of your baby's nervous system. In fact, the availability of important nutrients during pregnancy, including b vitamins, affect gene settings in your child that significantly influence the future health of your child.*
At the top of your nutrient needs are B vitamins, especially folate, B12, and B6, which work synergistically to facilitate optimal nerve development. At Wellness Resources we use only the finest forms of these nutrients which do not contain potential nerve irritants. For example, we use the superior form of B12 known as coenzyme methylcobalamin. Cheap B12, called cyanacobalamin, produces cyanide molecules as it is metabolized that must be detoxified. Why expose your baby to that? We also use the coenzyme form of B6, pyridoxal 5' phosphate, that directly facilitates nerve function. Cheap B6, sold as pyridoxine HCL, produces a nerve-toxic waste product as it is metabolized.*
Folate / Folic Acid for Pregnancy
Folic acid is essential during pregancy. Folate is the natural, most absorbable form of folic acid. Folate defiency can result in neural tube defects in developing embryos. Unfortunately, most folic acid in prenatal vitamins is synthetic and may actually clog folic acid receptors in your digestive tract and cause unpredictable results and low absorption. Daily Prental Multi Vitamin™ contains folate as coenzyme Quatrefolic®, which has superior absorption and does not confuse your folic acid receptors with a synthetic compound.*
Highest Quality Iron and Zinc for Growth
During pregnancy it is absolutely vital that your iron and zinc status be maintained to support optimal growth and fetal development in hundreds of different ways. These minerals are every bit as important to pregnancy as folic acid.
Daily Prenatal Multi Vitamin™ contains a unique form of iron called iron bisglycinate, which is one molecule of iron bound to two molecules of glycine--a natural amino acid chelate. This form of iron stays intact in your digestive tract, does not cause constipation, is easily utilized and does not produce unnecessary toxic byproducts. The low quality iron forms to avoid are ferrous sulfate and ferrous gluconate. Check your label!
We also use the natural form of zinc, which exactly parallels the way your body naturally absorbs zinc. Most other multivitamins contain the inexpensive, low-quality zinc oxide, which is poorly absorbed and can actually use up your antioxidant reserves. During pregnancy, it is essential that you maintain proper iron and zinc levels to support optimal growth and fetal development in a multitude of ways.*
