5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Prenatal Vitamin, December 4, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I feel so much better about this vitamin, that is is whole-food derived. Very gentle on the stomach.
A note to the reviewer about the calcium, I too wondered about the insufficient calcium in (all) prental vitamins. I even asked my ob why and he didn't know?? ... finally found out that calcium blocks iron absorbtion. So you need to take a calcium supplement at a different time than your prenatal.

I'm glad you brought this up. I always wondered why vitamins were not separated and taken at different times of the day. For instance, iron should be taken with Vitamin C and B12 to increase absorption but not be taken with zinc or calcium as they compete for absorption. Calcium should be taken with magnesium and D3 in order to be utilised by the body. I am sure there is a vitamin manufacturer out there who manufactures separate supplements to be taken throughout the day but, for now, I do not take a prenatal, choosing rather to take different supplements throughout the day. It is confusing and somewhat stressful!

I added a calcium supplement after reading your review and doing some research. HOWEVER, I took all my vitamins (my New Chapters, calcium and DHA supplement) to my doctor appointment and was told that the calcium supplement was not necessary and, in fact, could very likely lead to kidney stones. She said if you eat a pretty well-rounded diet a calcium supplement could just cause more trouble than good.
