description
Prenatal Care is a Prenatal and Postpartum vitamin and mineral supplement that has been specially formulated with 33 key vitamins, minerals and other co-factors to provide nutrients that are important before, during, and after pregnancy for the maintenance of good health. Prenatal Care also contains ginger, which is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve and prevent nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy, commonly known as morning sickness.

    A complete prenatal vitamin such as Prenatal Care is recommended during pregnancy to help cover any nutritional gaps in the mother's diet. The nutrients provided include Folic Acid, Vitamin A, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Iodine and Selenium.

    Folic Acid is an essential vitamin sometimes referred to as Vitamin B9, also known as 'Folate.' Folic Acid is primarily known as being the 'pregnancy supplement' where women who are planning to conceive children take it daily. This is critical in preventing something known as 'neural tube defects' (NTD's) which are caused by insufficient Folate provision to the fetus when their neural tube is being formed, and the combination of food fortification and supplementation has greatly prevented.

    Iron is included because it is an essential trace mineral found in most human cells. It is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to all tissues of the body and promotes iron rich blood. It plays a role in normal red blood cell production and supports energy utilization. Iron requirements increase during growth, pregnancy and menstruation. Iron nutritionally supports women's health and is a co-factor required for the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin.

    Ginger Root is useful for eliminating gastrointestinal distress. It is effective in treating morning sickness and provides relief of nausea. Prenatal Care's formula also contains ginger because it is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve digestive upset/disturbances including lack of appetite, nausea, digestive spasms, indigestion, dyspepsia and flatulent colic (carminative).
