One pill a day
on May 9, 2012
Yes, if you haven't notice I am not a female however I take these things very seriously and we actually purchased this product at our doctor's recommendation. For the most part ever prenatal vitamin is slightly different but our doctor was only concerned about a couple major ingredients which every vitamin satisfied. The reason why this one stood out is that it is a soft gel and only one pill to get both the vitamins and the fish oil/ Dha which makes it easier/ less of a hassle. The doctor mentioned taking too many pills at once reduces the absorption so this was a good way to not have to worry about that. Also having a 150 pill bottle is almost enough for 5 months (give or take a few days) so two will be enough for the entire pregnancy but Nature Made makes smaller bottles I thought this was pretty convenient.
It is hard to be convincing because picking the right multivitamin for you or your spouse is really up to you and the doctor. Sure there are tons of opinions online and even your doctor will have their opinion but in the end it is how well the body holds up. My wife did have a short period where her nails thinned so we has to increase calcium intake a little but other then that there has not been any noticeable deficiency other then iron which is common. If you are reading this review I will assume congratulations are in order and we have tried two other brands of vitamins and will say my wife is impartial to which is better. I hope this helps you as if this is your first child like me, this whole thing is a new experience. Best of luck everyone.
