Stuart Prenatal Uses

How Does Stuart Prenatal Work?

Stuart Prenatal vitamins contain a variety of vitamins and minerals that are important for a healthy pregnancy. These vitamins and minerals are similar to those found in most multivitamins. However, Stuart Prenatal contains more of certain vitamins and minerals. Importantly, Stuart Prenatal contains 800 mcg of folic acid (compared to 400 mcg for most multivitamins), which can help to prevent certain birth defects. This is probably enough for most pregnant women, although it is slightly less that the amount found in most prescription prenatal vitamins (which have 1000 mcg, or 1 mg).
 
Stuart Prenatal also contains iron, a little calcium, and various other vitamins and minerals. You may need to take extra calcium (as is the case with all prenatal vitamins), because calcium is a bulky mineral (which would make the prenatal vitamins too large), and is best taken two or three times a day.
 
Stuart Prenatal + DHA contain fish oil, which provides DHA, EPA, and other omega-3 fatty acids. There is some evidence that omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, may decrease the risk of preterm birth (having a baby prematurely), improve brain function, and improve vision in babies.
 
Fish are the main source of DHA, and the typical American diet is usually deficient in DHA. Additionally, because many pregnant women are instructed to limit their intake of certain fish (due to the potential risks of mercury toxicity), it is likely that many pregnant women are not getting enough DHA.
 

Stuart Prenatal Use in Children, Men, or the Elderly

Stuart Prenatal is not recommended for use in children, men, or the elderly. Stuart Prenatal may contain too much iron (and other vitamins and minerals) for children or elderly people.
 

Off-Label Stuart Prenatal Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Stuart Prenatal 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 to their prenatal vitamins. There is no evidence that prenatal vitamins help with hair growth (or that they would be any better than a regular multivitamin for this use).
