Problem Prenatals…

According to, there are 7 major problems with prenatal vitamins. 

Poor Quality:

Most prenatal vitamins contain poor quality, synthetic forms of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants like an inferior form of B12 called Cyancobalamin (that’s harder on your liver) and the cheap, hard to absorb, Calcium Carbonate.

Inadequate Potency:

Most have inadequate potency (not enough for baby and mom, based on current research). An example is: folic acid. Most prenatals contain 400 mcg of folic acid, but new research indicates that you and your baby really need 800 mcg.

Tablet Form:

Most are hard to digest due to being highly compressed and covered with waxes, such as carnauba wax. Use capsule forms instead.

No Omega-3s:

Most prenatal vitamins DO NOT contain optimal Omega-3 fatty acids, in the form of high quality fish oils, that build your baby’s nervous system, eyes, skin, and cells. If they are included, they probably don’t contain a high enough dosage of DHA and EPA oils or are certified free of dangerous heavy metals such as mercury, lead (ever heard of lead poisoning?) cadmium, aluminum and PCBs (environmental toxins). Flaxseed oil does not easily convert into DHA which is essential for baby and mom. They also may not be in the needed amounts.

Calcium & Iron Together:

Iron and Calcium should be taken at separate times of the day. Why? Calcium binds to iron, interfering with the absorption of both they cancel each other out.

Missing Nutrients:

Most prenatal vitamins don’t contain key nutrients (like C0Q10 and alpha lipoic acid) that truly help the body produce an abundance of natural energy, something all pregnant moms need. These powerhouse nutrients are expensive and rarely included in prenatal vitamins.
No Concern for Your Situation:

Most prenatals also don’t address specific problems most pregnant women experience, such as sleeplessness and “morning queasyness” with natural solutions like Papain enzyme (from Papaya) and Ginger Root Extract.
