Prenatal & Nursing Formula focuses on key nutritional needs tailored to support reproductive health in pregnant and nursing women, and women wishing to become pregnant. This formula provides a full complement of essential vitamins and minerals in highly bioavailable, well-tolerated forms.
Recommended amounts of active folate (as Metafolin®‡ L-5-MTHF) and active vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) are included to support optimal folate metabolisms and methylation.† Prenatal & Nursing Formula also contains chelates such as Ferrochel® chelated iron – a bioavailable, non-constipating form of iron.†
Vitamin D (50 mcg or 2,000 IU) to meet increased needs for fetal growth and bone development,† and phosphatidylcholine, a bioavailable form of choline that supports fetal brain development and maternal liver function help round out the formulation.†
Mommy Goodness Prenatal & Nursing Formula
Prenatal & Nursing Formula is a three-per-day multivitamin and mineral supplement formulated to address several key nutritional needs ofpregnant and nursing women often overlooked in other prenatal multis.† The amounts and forms of each nutrient in this formula ensure ahigh degree of bioavailability, tolerance, and safety.†
• A balanced mix of over 20 vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and other important nutrients in bioavailable forms to support absorptionand tolerance.†
• 50 mcg (2,000 IU) of vitamin D3 to meet increased needs for fetal growth, bone development, and other essential functions.†
• Active forms of folate (Metafolin® L-5-MTHF), vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 to support absorption and utilization by the body.†
• Added iron, in a bioavailable and easy-to-tolerate form, to support oxygen transport, immune function, energy production, and fetalbrain development.†
• Free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, and wheat. Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
How Prenatal & Nursing Formula works
Prenatal & Nursing Formula provides a comprehensive mix of vitamins and minerals to meet the increased nutritional needs of women whoplan to become pregnant as well as pregnant and nursing mothers.† Highlighted ingredients in this formula include:
Vitamin A/carotenoids: Preformed vitamin A and mixed carotenoids provide more complete vitamin A nutrition while ensuring preformedvitamin A is supplied at a safe level for pregnancy. Retinoid forms of vitamin A participate in regulation of fetal gene expression, growth and differentiation of cells and tissues, vision, and development of the immune system.†
Vitamins C and E: These antioxidant vitamins combat increased oxidative stress that occurs during pregnancy, in addition to serving a widerange of biological and developmental functions.† Vitamin E is supplied as d-alpha tocopheryl succinate plus mixed tocopherols (d-alpha,d-beta, d-gamma, d-delta) for synergistic benefit.
Vitamin D: Adequate vitamin D intake is essential for maternal and fetal health during pregnancy, and population studies show that manypregnant women have sub-optimal vitamin D levels. In pregnancy, vitamin D modulates maternal immune responses to the placenta and is essential for proper placental implantation.†1 At 50 mcg (2,000 IU) per serving, Prenatal & Nursing Formula provides ample vitamin D tosupport the demands of pregnant and nursing women.
Folate: Folate is essential to support normal fetal development including neural tube development.† There is evidence that folic acid, thesynthetic form of folate most commonly used in dietary supplements, may not be optimal for some people. Prenatal & Nursing Formula provides 1,360 mcg DFE (800 mcg) of folate as methylfolate (L-5-MTHF), the biologically active form found in the body.
Biotin: Biotin metabolism accelerates during pregnancy and biotin reserves decline as pregnancy progresses.2 Prenatal & Nursing Formulasupplies the recommended daily amount of biotin to support rapidly dividing fetal cells.†
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is critical during pregnancy to support healthy birth weight, neural tube development, and the countlessmethylation reactions required to support gene expression, cell differentiation, and organogenesis during all stages of embryonic and fetal development.† Prenatal & Nursing Formula provides methylcobalamin, an active form of vitamin B12.
Iron: Pregnancy significantly increases a woman’s need for iron and most pregnant women do not consume adequate amounts of iron from food. Iron is required for normal growth and development of the fetus and placenta, and for expansion of the mother’s red blood cell volume.† Prenatal & Nursing Formula provides iron as ferrous bisglycinate chelate, a bioavailable and well-tolerated form.
Iodine: Sufficient iodine intake is required for normal maternal thyroid hormone synthesis.† Beyond supporting the mother, thyroidhormone is essential for myelination of the fetal brain and spinal cord.†
Choline: Choline is required for normal embryonic and fetal brain development.† Betaine, a metabolite of choline, is required formethylation reactions necessary for cell differentiation, gene transcription, and organogenesis.† Prenatal & Nursing Formula supplies cholinein the bioavailable form of phosphatidylcholine.†
