I am not pregnant, but am still breastfeeding, so I make sure to take a prenatal vitamin every day. In addition to my prenatal vitamin I also take DHA. A company I have loved for a while is Ritual, but stopped taking their women’s daily vitamin because I was pregnant, so needed a prenatal. I was thrilled when I heard they just released a prenatal vitamin (with DHA). I knew I had to get my hands on it immediately!
I wanted to share all the details of WHY I love this prenatal vitamin so much:
-Essential Prenatal’s combine Omega-3 DHA with Choline, so no need to take a separate pill
-Vegan-friendly formula, including Vitamin D3 from wild-harvested lichen and Omega-3 from algal oil
-Designed with the common MTHFR gene variation in mind, using Methylated Folate instead of Folic Acid, so the nutrients can be properly processed by all women to support neural tube development in the first 28 days of pregnancy
-No-nausea design capsule, which bypasses the stomach and releases in the small intestine, the most absorptive part of your gut
-Made with the cleanest, purest and most carefully sourced ingredients
-Has a lemon-essenced tab for a fresh experience
-A prenatal vitamin isn’t just for *during* pregnancy— it’s important to start taking a prenatal before pregnancy, as well as postpartum if you’re breastfeeding.
-When trying (or not not-trying), to conceive, critical development occurs before most women find out that they’re pregnant which is why it’s so important to begin taking a prenatal before you’re pregnant.
-During the first 28 days of pregnancy, critical neural tube development occurs, but many women start taking a prenatal vitamin after they become pregnant. It’s SO important to begin taking prenatal vitamins before you conceive.
