Nestabs Uses

How Does It Work?

Nestabs contains a variety of different vitamins and minerals, including calcium, choline, and vitamin B6. These nutrients are important for a healthy pregnancy, and many pregnant women may not get enough of them for various reasons. Probably most importantly, Nestabs contains folic acid, which is important to prevent certain birth defects known as neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

Is It Safe for Children to Use Nestabs?

Nestabs are not approved for use in individuals younger than 18 years old. In general, prenatal vitamins should not be used in children, unless prescribed by a healthcare provider. This is because prenatal vitamins contain iron in doses that may be too high for children.

Can Older Adults Use It?

While prenatal vitamins are not likely to harm an older adult, they do not necessarily meet the nutritional needs of older adults. Prenatal vitamins are specially formulated to meet the nutritional needs of pregnant and breastfeeding women. In addition, the large iron content in some prenatal vitamins could cause constipation in older adults.

Off-Label Nestabs Uses

On occasion, healthcare providers may recommend medications for treating something other than the approved uses. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no well-accepted off-label uses for Nestabs.
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 to their prenatal vitamins. It is unlikely that prenatal vitamins will help with hair growth, or that they would be more effective than a regular multivitamin for this use.
