There’s a lot to consider when you’re planning a pregnancy and especially when you get the happy news that you’re pregnant. Before you even conceive, doctors recommend taking a good quality prenatal multivitamin like CanPrev’s Prenatal Multi.
Prenatal multivitamins are different from your regular multis because they’re specially formulated to prepare your body to support the developing nutritional needs of mother and fetus. They contain more folic acid to help prevent spina bifida (defect of the spine) and anencephaly (defect of the brain) that can happen early in pregnancy when the neural tube, which becomes the brain, and the spine doesn’t fuse properly.
Prenatal vitamins also contain more iron than standard adult multis. Iron supports fetal growth and development and helps prevent anemia, a condition where the blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells.
Some research also suggests that prenatal vitamins decrease the risk of having a baby who is small for his or her gestational age.
CanPrev’s Prenatal Multi is specially formulated with nutrients critical for pregnant and nursing women. It provides 24 vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, calcium, magnesium and a gentle form of iron to support the developing nutritional needs of both mother and fetus. Prenatal Multi helps to reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken daily, prior to and during early pregnancy and aids in the development of tissues, red blood cells and bones.
