The Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology Canada suggests taking a prenatal supplement at least 3 months before becoming pregnant. A daily multivitamin is also recommended for women who are breastfeeding. Platinum Naturals’ Prenatal Line has been carefully formulated to support both mother and baby throughout the perinatal period – preconception, during pregnancy and following the birth of the baby.
Reduce the risk of neural tube defects. In just one softgel capsule a day, Prenatal Easymulti provides the necessary vitamins folate and vitamin B124. Folate and vitamin B12 support the normal development of the spine, brain and skull of the fetus. This is particularly important during the first four weeks of pregnancy.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are incredibly beneficial for both mother and baby. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is one of the most biologically active forms of omega-3s that are critical building blocks for the baby’s developing brain and retina. Prenatal Easymulti and Prenatal EasyCal Calcium contain high-quality DHA, and taking both formulas together provides 335 mg, equivalent to the amount of eating two to three servings of fish weekly. Women who would like additional omega-3s can supplement with Prenatal Omega 3-DHA.
Bone Strength and Immunity. Vitamin D and calcium work synergistically to build and maintain strong bones and teeth, and to enhance immune function. It is recommended that all women in the perinatal period supplement their dietary intake of calcium and Vitamin D. Prenatal EasyCal Calcium is formulated to provide the perfect foundation for a healthy pregnancy when taken together with Prenatal Easymulti.
Blood Building. The mother’s daily iron requirements increase tremendously during pregnancy because of the increase in red blood cell mass. Most pregnant women have trouble getting the iron they need through diet alone, so a daily supplement containing 16 to 20 mg of elemental iron is recommended. Prenatal Easymulti and Prenatal EasyIron Extra Gentle contain 15mg and 9mg respectively of iron (II) bisglycinate with negligible incidence of stomach upset and constipation due to its superior bioavailability.
Morning Sickness affects 70-85% of pregnant women. Clinical trials have demonstrated that ginger and vitamin B6 are effective at treating morning sickness during all stages of pregnancy with no side effects reported for either the mother or the baby. Prenatal Anti-Nausea combines ginger extract and vitamin B6 with ginger oil for effective and soothing nausea relief.
Pure and Gentle. Platinum Naturals Prenatal products do not contain any binders, fillers, artificial colours or preservatives. All of the high quality ingredients are suspended in healthy oils using the proprietary Omega Suspension Technology™ (OST®). Studies have shown that oil passes easily through cell membranes; helping your body absorb the nutrients more efficiently. OST is gentle on your stomach and helps deliver results you can feel.
