Give Your Baby the Gift of Nature with Natural Prenatal Vitamins
Many women wonder, how early should I take prenatal vitamins? It’s a common concern, as more often than not, pregnancies are undetected for the first few weeks. Because of this, many experts recommend women start taking folic acid three months prior to conception. That’s great for those who are able to schedule their pregnancy to a month but most instances aren’t as predictable, so relatively recently, it’s been recommended to take prenatal vitamins daily if you may become pregnant to ensure the health of your baby from the moment of conception. That is, it’s never too early to start.
The reason most doctors advise expectant-mother-hopefuls to take folic acid before conception is to ensure that there’s adequate folic acid already developed in the mother’s body as soon as her baby begins to develop.
Why folic acid? Folic acid is one of the most important components of any prenatal vitamin because it helps prevent neural-tube defects such as spina bifida. It’s also been reported that neural-tube defects happens in the first four to six weeks of pregnancy. That’s why doctors encourage taking folic acid as soon as possible in pregnancy and optimally, up to threemonths before conception.
Other important components of prenatal vitamins include DHA, biotin, calcium and iron. DHA helps the development of the brain, eye and nervous systems in embryos and infants. DHA is often sourced from cold-water fish but you can also find vegan options such as our own multivitamin prenatalsupplement.
Biotin is vital for normal embryonic growth because it aids in healthy skin, hair, eyes and the liver. Because it is water-soluble and not stored in the body, it’s important to make sure you are getting a reliable daily intake of biotin.
Iron is essential as it helps deliver oxygen to the baby and prevents anemia in the mother. And calcium helps build the baby’s bones and also prevents bone loss in the mother.
