Why Does Dr. Jockers Like This Product?
Prenatal Essentials contains superior and bioavailable forms of key pregnancy nutrients to support baby’s development.
Who Needs Prenatal Essentials?
Too many prenatals on the market contain too many ingredients. When it comes to growing a healthy baby, more is not necessarily better.
Prenatal Essentials is designed for women seeking an affordable prenatal multivitamin without compromising quality. It contains the essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need to support a healthy pregnancy...no more, no less.
Prenatal Essentials can be taken before, during, and after pregnancy to support:
- Healthy Fertility
- Pregnancy Health
- Normal Fetal Development
- Postpartum Recovery
- Lactation Support
Why does Prenatal Essentials Work?
Doctors recommend folate and B12 during pregnancy. These essential nutrients are well-known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (e.g., spina bifida), as well as other birth defects and pregnancy complications.
Prenatal Essentials was formulated based on the enzymatic pathways involved in pregnancy and genetic development. Enzymes in these pathways require specific nutrients as cofactors. Arguably the most important of these nutrients are folate and B12 in their most active forms. Your body needs these bioavailable forms for proper methylation, which is essential for healthy fetal development.
Your MTHFR gene converts and produces folate (5-MTHF) from whole foods. However, MTHFR gene variations or lifestyle stress can slow down this gene, causing folate deficiency. It is estimated that over 50% of the population has a mutation in their MTHFR gene.
Folic acid is an artificial form of folate often prescribed to pregnant women. This form can slow the MTHFR gene even more! Folic acid is not included in any of Seeking Health’s dietary supplements. Instead, we use natural and bioavailable forms of folate. These include 5-MTHF (methylated) and methyl-free folinic acid (calcium folinate).
By supplementing with the natural form of folate as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), you bypass the MTHFR enzyme. Pre-formed 5-MTHF provides a methyl group attached to folate that can be used in the methylation cycle.
The active or methylated form of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin, is essential for proper folate utilization, methylation, DNA expression, and much more.
Prenatal Essentials contains these essential nutrients in their bioavailable, methylated forms. Without sufficient bioavailable folate and B12, the fetus cannot effectively develop and express its genetics.
What is the Recommended Use?
Take 2 capsules daily with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not take within 5 hours of bedtime as it may interfere with sleep.
take 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule with lunch for more consistent nutrition throughout the day.
