Prenatal provides a variety of essential vitamins and minerals to ensure adequate intake for both mother and child. This balanced prenatal formula is provided in easy to swallow vegetarian capsules and promotes maternal and fetal health during pregnancy and lactation. Prenatal contains Metafolin®, a patented and natural form of L-methylfolate (5- MTHF). L-methylfolate is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells. It is essential for a developing fetus, and helps to reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken daily prior to becoming pregnant and during early pregnancy. Unlike synthetic folic acid, L-methylfolate can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional enzymatic conversion. In certain populations, the body's ability to enzymatically convert folic acid to 5-MTHF may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and is the only form of folate that can cross the blood-brain barrier. Prenatal also contains important vitamins and minerals that help support energy production, antioxidant defence, skin and healthy glucose metabolism, as well as immune, muscle and thyroid gland function.
