Keep on Track with Prenatal

Have you ever known the directions to get somewhere, but still used an app on your mobile device as insurance to navigate any unexpected traffic situations?

If you’re reading this, you’re likely well-prepared for your pregnancy. Eating well and keeping active are lifestyle choices that don’t waver, with additional caloric requirements adding up to 300 calories (a banana and a fistful of almonds) in the second trimester, and a 500-calorie tuna salad on whole-wheat being sufficient to meet additional needs in the third trimester.

The initial trimester, however, has immediate fetal demands for many vitamins and minerals with an additional 25% to 50% increase being critical during pregnancy. Folic acid for the prevention of neural-tube defects, and a highly bioavailable form of iron (iron bisglycinate) to fuel haemoglobin production are must-have nutrients. There are also a mosaic of vitamins and minerals necessary to quench fetal demands for healthy development. You may also notice our formula is free from vitamin A and beta-carotene. This stems from a study featuring 1,075 pregnant women having proven these lipid soluble vitamins to be of no benefit compared to placebo, as well as having the potential to negate the expected benefits of a multivitamin for expectant mothers.

New Roots Herbal’s Prenatal delivers therapeutic amounts of 23 biologically active vitamins and minerals specific for maternal health prior to conception, full-term, and while breast-feeding.

Consider Prenatal an ally to keep your eyes on the road as you navigate the long and winding path to parenthood.
