Prenate DHA Uses
Prenate DHA is a prescription prenatal vitamin that is used to help fill any nutritional gaps in a pregnant woman's diet. Specifically, Prenate DHA contains an important omega-3 fatty acid (DHA) that helps improve brain development and vision, as well as prevent preterm birth. Prenate DHA actually contains more DHA than any other prescription prenatal vitamin. Prenate DHA uses in women trying to get pregnant or for women who are breastfeeding are also beneficial.
What Is Prenate DHA Used For?Prenate DHA® is a prescription prenatal vitamin. Prenatal vitamins are specifically designed for pregnant women. They are used to fill in any nutritional gaps in a pregnant woman's diet. Even women who usually eat a well-balanced and nutritional diet before pregnancy may have problems getting all the nutrition they need during pregnancy, due to morning sickness or other problems.
This prenatal vitamin is different than most others because it contains folic acid and Quatrefolic®. Folic acid must be converted in the body into folate to be active and provide health benefits. Quatrefolic is the active form of folate and does not need to be broken down by the body.
Even though most people think only pregnant women take prenatal vitamins, Prenate DHA is also useful for women trying to conceive or for use after childbirth, particularly for women who choose to breastfeed. Because it is important to get enough folic acid prior to pregnancy and during early pregnancy (including the early weeks before you even know you are pregnant), your healthcare provider may recommend that you take a prenatal vitamin while trying to get pregnant. In fact, because so many pregnancies are unplanned, it is a good idea for any sexually active woman of reproductive age to take a prenatal vitamin (or at least a multivitamin with a minimum of 400 mcg of folic acid).
