Prenatal+DHA is a balanced, synergistic vegetarian formula that provides a curated compilation of nutrients your developing baby requires in the optimal ratios for absorption, metabolism, and safety. Prenatal+DHA is a top-rated, exclusive formula sourced directly from nature containing pure unadulterated ingredients and meets the highest nutraceutical standards.

More about Prenatal+DHA:
The structural fatty acid DHA is crucial for proper eye and central nervous system development, impacting some of the most significant brain functions including vision, cognition and motor function. While DHA is important for everyone, it can be especially vital for babies. Fetuses get DHA while in the womb, and babies could get DHA through their mother’s milk. But, many women do not have enough DHA for themselves, let alone enough DHA for two. Prenatal supplements that are fortified with DHA increase the level of DHA in expectant and new mothers so that both mother and baby can benefit.
Another crucial component of Prenatal+DHA is the nutrient folate. Unlike folic acid, the source Folate (Quatrefolic 5-methyltetrahydrofolic) is body ready, which means it requires no complex conversion and eliminates the risk of unmetabolized folic acid. This naturally occurring form of folate is required by as many as 50% of pregnant women due to an MTFHR gene mutation, as these women either lack the enzymes needed to receive any benefit from synthetic folic acid or cannot fully process synthetic folic acid at RDA or higher dose levels.

Question : What are the benefits of DHA in pregnancy?

Answer : DHA has been proven to be absolutely essential during the critical periods of pregnancy and early infancy. Maternal DHA levels directly impact the developing central nervous system and the cognition (mental development), vision and motor function of the developing baby. Research also shows that DHA taken in pregnancy may prevent postpartum depression.

Question : Why did you include Chromium in Prenatal +DHA?

Answer : Being that many women are at risk for developing gestational diabetes, we included chromium in Prenatal +DHA to help stabilize and keep sugar levels balanced.

Question : What is the difference between the folate (Quatrefolic 5-methyltetrahydrofolic) in Prenatal +DHA versus standard folic acid found in most prenatal supplements?

Answer : The naturally occurring, metabolically active form of folate (Quatrefolic 5-methyltetrahydrofolic) found in Prenatal +DHA is the most stable and bioactive form of folate. Folate (Quatrefolic 5-methyltetrahydrofolic) is body ready, which means it requires no complex conversion and eliminates the risk of un-metabolized folic acid. This naturally occurring form of folate is required by a large percentage of women due to an MTFHR gene mutation, as these women either lack the enzymes needed to receive any benefit from synthetic folic acid, or cannot fully process synthetic folic acid at RDA or higher dose levels.

Question : Can I take both of the softgels at once? I find that if I don't take them both the same time I forget the second dose.

Answer : Yes, you can take both softgels at the same time. That is definitely better than taking only 1 a day. However, for maximum absorption it's recommended to take the softgels separately with at least a 3-hour space between them.

Question : Can I take this Prenatal supplement while breastfeeding?

Answer : Absolutely. When one is breastfeeding, the baby is receiving all the nutrients it needs, often depleting the mother. Therefore, it is crucial for breastfeeding mothers to take a quality supplement such as Prenatal +DHA300 to provide both mother and baby with the nutrients needed.

Question : The new softgels look different. Can you explain what changed?

Answer : There are a lot more differences in the newer version besides for the color. We updated the formula to be vegetarian-friendly and easier to swallow. Additionally, the forms of many of the vitamins and minerals are easier to absorb in this version, so we had to put in less of many of the nutrients.

Question : Does this product contain synthetic folic acid or natural folate?

Answer : Zahler Prenatal +DHA300 contains only methylated folate, no synthetic folic acid at all.

    I have been taking these vitamins for about 5 months and have nothing bad to say about them! I’ve also noticed a difference in my hair and skin. They are easy to swallow and don’t have the bad vitamin taste either. However I would recommend to eat something before taking them. I am so glad my pharmacist recommended this brand to me!

    I love these softgels! I have been on the hunt for a prenatal vitamin that contains the essential nutrients while also sitting well and this is it. I also appreciate that the price point is decent and I like the softgel form rather than capsule or tablets which are harder to swallow.
