Neevo Uses

How Does Neevo Work?

Neevo contains a variety of different vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are important for a healthy pregnancy, and many pregnant women may not get enough of these nutrients, for various reasons. Probably most importantly, this prenatal vitamin contains Metafolin®, a special form of folic acid. Folic acid is important to prevent certain birth defects, such as spina bifida.

The supplement also contains iron, calcium, and various other vitamins and minerals.
Because Neevo contains Metafolin (instead of just regular folic acid), it is an ideal prenatal vitamin for women who cannot fully metabolize folic acid into its active form. Because Metafolin (also known as L-methylfolate) is already in the active form, it is ready to be used by the body (with no metabolism necessary).

Can It Be Taken by Children, Men, or the Elderly?

Neevo is typically not recommended for children, men, or the elderly. Sometimes, prenatal vitamins are prescribed in place of regular vitamins in order to get them covered by insurance or Medicaid (although many insurance companies have caught on to this practice and now restrict prenatal vitamin coverage to pregnant women only). Many prenatal vitamins contain iron in doses that are too high for children.

Off-Label Uses for Neevo

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Neevo for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. People often wonder if taking prenatal vitamins may be helpful for hair growth.
Although pregnant women often experience fuller, thicker hair that grows faster, this is due to hormones, not prenatal vitamins. It is unlikely that prenatal vitamins will help with hair growth (or that they would be any better than a regular multivitamin for this use).
