Why Our Prenatal Is the BEST For Mamas
If you’re pregnant, or have just had a baby and are breastfeeding, then you may be taking a prenatal vitamin.
It’s standard for OBs to tell moms to take a prenatal because the demands of growing a baby can exert tremendous pressure on the mother’s nutritional needs.
As with most things, the vast majority (like 99%) of prenatals simply don’t help moms as much as they should.
First and foremost, diet is the best part of forming a solid foundation for nutrition. Many women take prenatals because they’re trying to cover their bases for any missed nutrients they need to help with their child’s development.
And some take them as an excuse to eat poorly.
And while this isn’t a terrible idea to use them to cover your bases, (actually, it’s a decent idea), where most prenatals fail is in the fact that some of the most important nutrients simply don’t make it into their capsules.
And some prenatals actually contain known toxins that are terrible for a gestating child (and breastfeeding children).
In this article we’re going to discuss why our Raise Them Well Physician Developed Prenatal & Breastfeeding Multivitamin is the ultimate multivitamin for mothers who want the best of the best and don’t want to expose themselves or their children to ingredients that could potentially harm their development.
How These 4 Ingredients Make Healthy Moms and Babies
The reason we wrote today’s article wasn’t to show you what’s wrong with other prenatals.
Ok, yes it is.
Chances are that the prenatal you’re taking or that you're looking at buying, does not contain these 4 ingredients:
- Vitamin K2 MK-7
What makes these ingredients an absolute must for moms and babies?
1 - Vitamin K2 MK-7: Most women and children are deficient in this vitamin because they don’t eat the kinds of foods that contain it. As it’s critical to bone, teeth, and jaw development, we put it in this formula.
2 - Methylfolate: Roughly 40% of pregnant women need this because their body doesn’t properly turn dietary folic acid into this form of folate (through the methylation process). And this matters because when they can’t methylate folic acid it could cause improper brain and nervous system development.
3 - Methylcobalamin: Similarly to how 40% of women can’t methylate folic acid… that same number of women can’t methylate vitamin B-12. We include methylcobalamin to help with healthy brain and nervous system development.
4 - Glutathione: Glutathione binds to toxins floating around in the blood and helps mom gently detoxify while protecting the baby. And since studies indicate cord blood has 100s of toxins in it, we know just how important it is to support healthy detoxification for baby.
Again, most other prenatals don’t contain these ingredients, and when you see just how important they are, you can see why you’d want to have a prenatal that delivers you nutrients you actually need.
